Green coffee is unroasted raw coffee beans that contain more chlorogenic acid than roasted coffee. It is a popular weight-loss supplement in Singapore.
The chlorogenic acid in green coffee is thought to have antioxidant properties and other pharmacologically active compounds. This might be responsible for lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
It might also affect how the body handles blood sugar and metabolism. Green coffee also contains caffeine in lower amounts than regular coffee.
Green coffee is often used for obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
Don’t confuse green coffee with other caffeine sources, including coffee, black tea, and green tea. These are not the same.
Since green coffee became popular, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sued many companies for false marketing and making unrealistic claims about weight loss.
Both the FTC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommend doing research and using caution when it comes to supplements.
Scientific research should back dietary supplement claims and you should be skeptical of products that claim to help you drop weight fast without changing your habits.
Adults often use the green coffee extract in doses of 90-1000 mg daily for 8-12 weeks. Speak with a healthcare provider to find out what dose might be best for a specific condition.
- Stop consuming green coffee at least 24 hours before a cardiac stress test.
- Taking green coffee along with alcohol might increase the risk for caffeine side effects including jitteriness, headache, and fast heartbeat. So opt for a decaffeinated green coffee.
- Don’t take green coffee along with medications such as antihypertensive, estrogen, and psychiatric medications.
- There isn’t enough reliable information to know if green coffee is safe to use when pregnant or breastfeeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
- Green coffee when taken in large amounts might worsen diarrheic in people with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
- Caffeine from green coffee and other sources can increase the amount of calcium that is flushed out in the urine. This might weaken bones. If you have osteoporosis, limit caffeine consumption to less than 300 mg per day. Try to choose decaffeinated green coffee.
Green coffee is possibly safe when used appropriately. Consuming large amounts of green coffee might cause caffeine-related side effects including headache, anxiety, agitation, and irregular heartbeat.
