Have you ever heard of green coffee? Admittedly, it sounds a bit strange at first glance. But in fact, green coffee is the latest hit in the field of diet aids. It is said that the consumption of green coffee will melt away the kilos. No additional dietary changes or exercise are necessary. But can it really be that simple? We take a closer look.
What is green coffee?
Simply said, green coffee is raw coffee, i.e. the unroasted bean in its original state. Normally, the raw beans are gently roasted so that they can develop their aromatic properties and give us the familiar and popular pleasure. With green coffee, this step is omitted. As a result, the bean contains less caffeine than when roasted, but at the same time more chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid is known to irritate the stomach, which is why the roasting process normally lowers the content in the bean.
How is green coffee offered and how do I prepare it?
Green coffee is not available everywhere as a whole bean. Instead, it is often offered in the form of capsules or powders. With this form of presentation, however, it is worth taking a close look at the ingredients. It is not uncommon for other (undesirable) preparations to be mixed in with the supposedly natural product.
For preparation, it is best to grind the beans in advance and then brew them like loose tea. A tea egg or a tea bag can be helpful.
How does green coffee affect weight loss?
The aforementioned chlorogenic acid is said to be responsible for the weight-reducing effect of green coffee. The acid is said to reduce the absorption of sugar in the intestine and influence the blood sugar level. Some claim that consumption also reduces the risk of diabetes. However, these effects are controversial and have not yet been sufficiently scientifically proven.
In conclusion, we can say that when it comes to enjoying coffee, it’s all about that – ENJOYMENT. No drink can replace the effect of sport and a healthy diet when it comes to losing weight. We therefore recommend that you stick to the familiar roasted coffee beans. You can find them in the best organic quality in our shop. We guarantee you won’t go wrong with them.
