If you’ve spent any amount of time on the internet lately, you’ve likely seen at least one ad, blog post, or news article mentioning green coffee extract. And if you’re like most of us, the idea probably has you scratching your head a bit. Why? Because coffee just isn’t green. So what could it be?

Well, believe it or not, coffee is, in fact, green. Raw green coffee beans that have not yet been roasted naturally are a light green color. And the unroasted variety has some pretty stellar health benefits. To start, it can help to balance the amount of sugar that forms in the liver by inhibiting the enzyme known as glucose-6-phosphatase. This basically means that green coffee can potentially reduce your risk of developing diabetes when the coffee is consumed over a long-term period. It’s also believed to be able to stop your body from absorbing fat from the foods that you eat while simultaneously forcing your body to use existing fat as a fuel source, thus upping your metabolism.

So does regularly coffee do all of this? A little bit, but not nearly to the level that green coffee beans can, especially when it comes to blocking fat absorption. That’s because most of the chlorogenic acid found in the coffee bean, which is responsible for the increase in the metabolism of fat, is cooked off when the beans are roasted.

In most cases, drinking brewed green coffee isn’t really pleasant, which is why a few companies have started coming out with supplements made with an extract of green coffee beans. To get the most out of your supplement, find one that contains at least 45% of the acid, listed as green coffee antioxidant (GCA) or Svetol on the ingredient list. Anything less than this won’t give you real, noticeable results.

However, you can have success brewing green coffee beans. Here is a great video discussing green coffee beans and various ways you can brew these fat burning beans and what to expect:
