Green Coffee capsules - natural weight loss benefits Friday 18 May 2007 PDF Print As we consider the bikini season once again.... thank heavens for the emergence of Green Coffee - the new buzzword and effective way to lose weight naturally. So these tried and tested new capsules are just the answer: they are classified as a food supplement - so ideal for people tired of 'slimming pills'. Natessance Green Coffee 400 is a new food supplement in capsule form that comprises decaffeinated Robusta green coffee beans. It contains Svetol® which helps to reduce the absorption of sugar from food that, in turn, cuts down the number of calories taken up by the body. Clinical studies on taking Green Coffee Svetol over eight weeks at 400mg per day have shown: · A decrease in weight by nearly 6% · An increase in the proportion of muscle to fat ratio of 4% · A decrease in the Body Mass Index of nearly 6% · All without changing their diet How does it work? Ingredients in the Robusta green coffee bean inhibit the uptake of glucose in the intestines, regulating metabolism and resulting in weight loss over a period of 60 days. Already recognised as an excellent anti-ageing food, Robusta green coffee is loaded with anti-oxidants which fight free radicals, the substances that cause cell damage and disease. Natessance takes the decaffeinated extract from the unroasted Robusta green coffee bean to avoid the negative health issues associated with excess caffeine. Six cups of caffeinated coffee a day causes dehydration and can overstimulate the body resulting in a variety of health problems. It is also believed that roasting coffee beans lessens the sugar balancing compounds. Obesity grows and grows Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the UK and carrying too much weight disturbs blood sugar concentration levels often leading to Type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent), another increasing problem. As many as 22 per cent of men and 23 per cent of women in the UK are classified as clinically obese, while another 43 per cent of men and 34 per cent of women are overweight.

A balance of the main nutrients – carbohydrates, proteins, essential fats, vitamins and minerals – plus plenty of water, fruit and vegetables is advisable. How do I take Natessance Green Coffee 400?

Green coffee is extracted from green coffee beans as opposed to roasted coffee beans. What are the ingredients of Natessence Green Coffee 400? Simply 133mg of Green Coffee Extract containing Svetol® Are there research studies to back up the claims about coffee? During the last three years there have been eight studies around the world that have shown that people who drink more than five cups of coffee a day have a decreased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent) by as much as 50 per cent. Is this for caffeinated coffee? It was assumed for some time that it was the caffeine in coffee which was responsible for cutting down on glucose absorption. However, a recent US (University of Minnesota) study of 28,000 women found that drinking more than six cups of decaffeinated coffee a day was associated with a 33 per cent lower risk of diabetes compared with no coffee. How does Svetol® work? The active ingredient in the Robusta green coffee bean is the Chlorogenic acid (CGA), a dietary polyphenol which limits glucose intake in the small intestine and regulates metabolism. In addition, by inhibiting the activity of glucose-6-phosphotase, it limits the release of glucose into the general circulation, thus encouraging the release of triglycerides from adipose tissue. Its combination with other components of the coffee bean (phelonic acid and 5-caffeoyl-quinic acid) also contributes to this activity. What do clinical trials show about Svetol®? Two clinical studies run by Berkem, the manufacturers of Svetol® showed that the green coffee supplement can: Regulate intestinal absorption of glucose Decrease high blood sugar levels after eating Liberate and break down fat held in the tissues Burn fat by increasing the lean to fat mass ratio in overweight people after 60 days of treatment Reduce Body Mass Index after 60 days This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of PR Workshop in the following categories: Health, Women's Interest & Beauty, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
