Green Coffee Bean Extract

Dr. Oz is touting this as the newest miracle weight loss pill.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Dr. Oz creates a lot of buzz on his show featuring products categorized as fad diet pills and supplements. In one feature was yet another product that he stated is a miracle weight loss pill for all body types, and that is green coffee bean extract in pill form.

When speaking about the green coffee beans as a supplement, Dr. Oz uses the phrases miracle pill, burn fat fast, and staggering weight loss. He mentions a study that was presented showing that men and women taking green coffee bean supplements lost an amazing 17 pounds in 22 weeks without diet or exercise. The participants in the study are said to have consumed 2,400 calories per day while taking the supplement and experienced no side effects.

The green coffee bean is where coffee comes from. The green bean is a coffee bean in its raw, natural state before it is roasted over high heat. The roasting process also causes the beans to lose their chlorogenic acid, which is the key compound contributing to the weight loss.

The study that Dr. Oz and his guest certified nutritionist Lindsey Duncan discuss on the show was conducted by Dr. Joe Vinson of Scranton University. This study was done in March of 2012 and involved a mere 16 study participants; hardly enough to validate a single study or create a representative profile of the larger population.

PRO
  • Uses natural green coffee beans for weight loss
  • As much as 17.5 pounds lost in 22 weeks
CON
  • Just another diet pill
  • Discounts the value of healthy diet and lifestyle changes
  • Discounts the value of fitness
  • Study was only performed using 16 people
  • No exercise or diet guidance offered with this supplement
  • Too new to know if side effects will occur
  • Dr. Oz promote every fad diet pill on his TV show
  • Some may use gelatin capsules; not vegan-friendly
INGREDIENTS

Ingredints for the Green Coffee Bean Extract supplements will vary by the brand you purchase. If Green Coffee Bean isn't the first, and primary, ingredient on a label, then it is not a concentrated form and you aren't as likely to derive any of the purported benefits. Some popular ingredients in these supplements include:

  • Green coffee bean extract
  • African mango extract
  • Acai fruit
  • Green tea extract
  • Resveratrol
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Kelp
  • Grapefruit
  • Gelatin
  • Calcium carbonate
  • Magnesium stearate
ADMINISTRATION

Dosage for the Green Coffee Bean Extract supplements will vary by the brand you purchase. Before beginning such a regimen you should review the product with your doctor and/or pharmacist.

DIET and EXERCISE

No diet or fitness guidance is provided with Green Coffee Bean Extract. In fact, in the miniscule study that was conducted, the participants didn't change their diets or workout.

CONCLUSION

Green Coffee Bean Extract is just another fad diet pill with over-hyped claims of efficacy. The promotion it received from Dr. Oz is obviously a boon to manufacturers eager to wave the limited study completed as conclusive evidence.

A much safer and proven lasting approach to losing weight is to engage in a healthy diet and increase your exercise. Taking pills for weight loss feeds the philosophy that you can lose weight without putting in any work.
