It’s not often you see the medical community backing supplements – especially ones that supposedly aid weight loss. But after a couple of promising research studies, the results are indisputable.
There is indeed something you can take that is all-natural, free of side-effects, and best of all… quickly burns belly fat.
How quick? Well… in the initial study conducted, participants went on to lose an average of 17 pounds over 22 weeks.
Of course, some lost less while others more. But that was the average. Furthermore, these results were achieved without strict dieting or exercise. Not bad, right?
Now, once this study hit the journals (Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, and Obesity) it caught the attention of a famous TV personality. And he decided to conduct a study of his own.
The end result? This stuff works!
If you don’t know what I’m referring to by this point, it’s green coffee (and the TV personality is Dr. Oz). And I have to admit: having watched the hype over this supplement soar in the past several months, curiosity got the best of me. As such, I decided to do a little digging of my own and see if it could benefit you and the rest of my readers.
Now, let it be known that I’m not big on supplements. I think most are a waste of money (at best) and some are downright dangerous. But once in a while, something pops up that is worth investigating.
And as mentioned previously, green coffee fits the bill. It’s natural, seems generally safe (no major side effects have been reported), and of course, it works. Very well indeed.
The question is: why?
Well, unlike regular coffee, green coffee is un-roasted. This preserves its chlorogenic acid content – the substance responsible for its slimming effects. Specifically, chlorogenic acid has been shown to block the release of glucose into the blood stream. By doing so, it prevents rapid rises in insulin which otherwise lead to fat storage. It may also increase the breakdown of fat by the liver.
If you’re a diabetic, take note because green coffee may be especially suited for you. But of course (diabetic or not) it’s a good idea to talk with your doctor first before taking this or any other supplement.
Now, once you get the green light, the final question is: which one to choose?
First of all, there are a lot of scams out there. I can’t recommend any particular company at the moment so you’ll have to do your homework. However, if there is enough interest in this, I’d be glad to put in the time. Simply leave me your comment below to let me know you’re interested.
With that said, here are a couple of general guidelines:
- Read all of the ingredients – if they are not listed on the bottle, don’t buy.
- Look for either GCA or Svetol in the list. These compounds contain the chlorogenic acid extract.
- The tablets/capsules should be made up of 45% chlorogenic acid (at a minimum). Any less and you’re likely wasting your money.
- Finally, look at the dosage. The participants in Dr. Oz’s study took 400mg, 3 times per day, and it worked. It stands to reason you should follow a similar dosing schedule.
Now, before I sign off let me leave you with one last bit of advice. No supplement in the world can make up for a poor diet. You can’t eat junk food all day (or even regularly), pop a few pills, and expect to get slim and healthy. It just doesn’t work that way. And the thousands of people who flush their money down the toilet on bogus products are proof of this.
Instead, use this (or any other proven supplement) as an aid. Eat clean, get some exercise, and only then think about using green coffee. It’s the only way to get real results – ones you can truly be proud of and will last a lifetime.
