Green Coffee Pills?

Hi all,

I have a friend who was talking about the benefits of green coffee extract pills for weight loss and lowering blood pressure. Does anyone have any experience with them? Useful? Not? Any insights would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Mike

Medical research on chlorogenic acid is lacking. Most green coffee diet products support their results with a single study published by Dr. Joe Vinson in the journal Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity. Although Vinson’s study found that participants lost an average 17 pounds, this occurred over five months — hardly instant results — and the study only included 16 people.

I took it to prevent after meal glucose spikes, but didn't notice any difference so I stopped taking it.

Yeah, I am a little over a week into taking the pills and can't say I notice a huge difference. Since I bought a month's supply (at two pills a day - they also suggest three or four, which seems crazy to me) I am going to take them throughout just to see, but so far, I can't tell a difference.

What's interesting, even with the caffeine in the pills, I don't notice a difference. Doesn't seem to me like I am taking a big caffeine boost.

There was just a news story about the Vinson 'study'--totally worthless from a scientific point of view. Dr. Oz is mainly responsible for the 'hype' about green coffee beans. All you will lose is your money, according to the reports I've read.

Green coffee bean extract is available in capsule but you can get it in liquid form also. No significant side effects for green coffee bean extract supplements founded, so far. But if you are in thinking of weight loss, please note - since weight reduction is a health Issue, it is safe to follow medical advices, especially if you have any pre-existing medical condition. To avoid all side effects, be sure to only intake the recommended dosage.

Just to wrap this up - I finished my month's supply. Lost almost the exact same amount of weight I had in previous months while sticking with Atkins 72. Since I've stopped taking the pills, I've continued to lose. YMMV, of course, but they seem to have done absolutely nothing for me.
