On Facebook today, Dr. Oz posted the following message:
“You might have seen our show in May on green coffee bean extract. If you've tried it, tell me about your experience in the comments section below.”
Approximately 2 hours following the post, 300 replies followed of which one-half responded to the post stating directly their personal opinion of whether or not the green coffee bean extract diet helped them lose weight. While the tally of the results is not a controlled statistical analysis of the available data, it does provide readers who are considering whether or not to try the supplement a sense of a sampling of what some dieters are discovering about the green coffee bean extract promoted on the Dr. Oz Show.
Last May on an episode of the Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz and special guest Lindsey Duncan told viewers that scientific studies have shown that consuming an extract of unroasted green coffee beans can result in significant weight loss in obese individuals.
This claim was the result of announcement at the 243rd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), where researchers revealed a startling finding from a weight loss study that showed how that an extract from green (unroasted) coffee beans resulted in significant weight loss in obese participants in a short period of time.
Lindsey Duncan told Oz viewers that the green coffee bean extract’s magic is believed to work through a natural chemical compound called “chlorogenic acid” that is present in unroasted coffee beans, but is broken down into an inactive form when roasted and brewed as coffee.
The chlorogenic acid is reported to work by boosting the metabolism or the “burning” of fat in the liver and inhibiting the release of glucose in the body— two mechanisms that work together to inhibit the absorption of fat and eliminate weight gain.
