Like green tea, green coffee bean extracts (GCBE) contains strong
antioxidants in the polyphenol family. The primary polyphenol
antioxidants in green coffee bean extract are in a family known as
chlorogenic acids (CGA). Meaningful, if still preliminary, evidence
hints that CGA may help reduce blood pressure. Other proposed uses
of GCBE are based primarily on its caffeine content, as well as
observational studies of ordinary coffee consumption and the
possible health benefits of antioxidants in general.
1. GCBE products are sometimes said to help prevent diabetes;
however, this claim derives only from weak evidence involving
consumption of ordinary coffee, and cannot be relied upon at all.
2. GCBE has also shown a bit of promise for aiding weight loss,
perhaps in part due to its chlorogenic acid content. The caffeine
in GCBE might also provide a slight weight loss benefit.
