We all know the good old coffee bean found in a cup of java; however what is now becoming more apparent is the goodness found in unroasted coffee beans. The beans themselves are green seeds from a red berry. When these beans are used for making our favourite hot drink, they are first roasted and thereby have the aroma and flavour coffee lovers adore. In this application, the beans are left unroasted; they are soaked and then concentrated to create the extract.
The key ingredient in Green Coffee Beans is chlorogenic acid which signals the liver to burn stored fat first as well as slowing down the process where sugar is turned into glucose. The rate of fat metabolism is increased and decreases the rate of fat absorption. Chlorogenic acid has also been found to increase body heat thus promoting thermogenesis which is the natural burning of fat for energy.
