What is Green Coffee?
Green coffee is a small bean that is native to the Asian sub-continent and parts of South America. The key ingredient in the green coffee bean is a very important natural active compound called Chlorogenic Acid. Chlorogenic acid works by inhibiting the release of glucose in the body, while at the same time boosting the metabolism or the "burning" of fat in the liver. These two mechanisms work together to inhibit the absorption of fat and eliminate weight gain. Green Coffee Extract is also known for its benefits in supporting heart and glucose health.
What are the active ingredients in Green Coffee Gold™?
The active ingredients in Green Coffee Gold are Polyphenols, which are antioxidant molecules, and Chlorogenic Acids. Chlorogenic Acids are a group of beneficial compounds that have been shown in pre-clinical and clinical studies to support healthy blood sugar levels, fat reduction, and healthy BMI.
What is the recommended dosage of Green Coffee Gold™?
Benefits of Green Coffee extract are extremely dose-dependent and can vary between individuals. The therapeutic dosage for Green Coffee Gold™ is 400 mg daily taken up to 30 minutes before your largest meal of the day. However, doses up to 1200 mg a day (400 mg 30 minutes before each of your 3 meals of the day) can be safely taken if you don't see any noticeable benefits at the lower dosage.
Does Green Coffee Gold™ contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredient, each vegetarian capsule of the Green Coffee Gold™ product contains some non-GMO, gluten-free Rice Concentrate. Because natural extracts can vary from batch to batch in terms of consistency, moisture (or stickiness) and particle size, it is sometimes necessary to add Rice Flour during the manufacturing process to help ensure product integrity without compromising product safety or effectiveness.
Is Green Coffee Gold™ free of allergens and GMOs?
Green Coffee Gold™ is verified free of wheat, peanut, soy, shellfish, egg, and milk by an independent, third-party lab. It is also verified free of GMOs by the Non-GMO Project™.
Is Green Coffee Gold™ suitable for Vegans / Vegetarians?
Green Coffee Gold™ does not contain any animal-derived ingredients and is, therefore, suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
Can individual with sensitivity to caffeine take Green Coffee Gold™?
Each vegetarian capsule of Green Coffee Gold™ is guaranteed to contain less than 2% caffeine, which translates to no more than 8 mg of caffeine per capsule of the product. The amount of caffeine per capsule of the product is less than the amount of caffeine in a bar of Hershey's Milk Chocolate. However, individuals with extreme sensitivities to any caffeine should start at the lowest dose (400 mg a day) to first assess how their body responds to the product before increasing the daily dosage, if necessary.
How long do I have to take Green Coffee Gold™ before I see any benefits?
Unlike OTC and prescription drugs that provide instant, temporary symptomatic relief without addressing the underlying problem responsible for poor health, herbal supplements provide progressive, long-term benefits by helping the body correct the underlying problem. While there are certain classes of herbs that work well in acute conditions to provide quick relief; herbs like Green Coffee need to be taken for at least 8 to 12 weeks before the full range of benefits can be realized. Green Coffee works best when taken as part of a health-maintenance program, which includes a sensible diet and moderate exercise regimen.
Is Green Coffee extract suitable for individuals with a medical condition?
Individuals with a known or suspected medical condition should always talk to a licensed medical professional before beginning any form of supplementation. It is never advisable to self-diagnose or self-treat a medical condition.
Does Green Coffee extract have any side effects or interactions?
Green Coffee does not have any known side effects. However, it is always recommended to consult your healthcare provider before taking any nutritional supplements, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or currently taking any OTC or prescription medications for a health condition.
