Ground Green Coffee Beans might aid in Weight Loss

Weighing in - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - The study was small, and the weight loss was achieved by eating a healthy diet and exercising. Previous studies have suggested green coffee extract may aid in weight loss, which prompted Joe Vinson, Ph.D. and his colleagues to investigate ground green coffee beans. The researchers will present the study results at the 243rd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS).

The study involved 16 participants that were overweight or obese, between the ages of 22 and 26, to take several green coffee capsules daily along with eating a low-fat healthy diet and following an exercise program for a period of 22 weeks. The participants cycled between a placebo, a 700 mg, and 1050 mg dose of the green coffee pills. The researchers said that the participants’ diet and exercise remained the same throughout the study.

At the end of the 22-week study, the participants lost an average of 17 pounds. The data reflected an average decrease in 10.5 percent of body weight. There was an average reduction of 16 percent in body fat. One of the researchers on the study, Joe Vinson, Ph.D., said that the participants might have lost even more weight because they cycled giving them a placebo, a lower dose, and a higher dose diet pill during the 22-week study.

Vinson suggests that the compound in ground green coffee that might aid in weight loss is chlorogenic acid. Vinson also explained that chlorogenic acid is destroyed when coffee is roasted at temperatures between 464-482 degrees Fahrenheit.
