Superfood: Green Coffee Beans
The green coffee beans used in Punch'd Energy begin as raw, unroasted coffee beans with unique health benefits. They can be used for everything from weight loss to improving mood and our immune system. Let’s take a closer look at this powerful superfood.
For Weight Loss:
Green coffee beans are effective in weight loss. Research has shown that the abundance of chlorogenic acid in the unroasted beans can target stored fat and burn away excess glucose, improve cholesterol levels and lessen the body's carbohydrate absorption rate.
In a study of 18 healthy individuals, researchers divided the group in half and had one group take green coffee bean extract, while the other had regular black coffee. Researchers discovered lower cortisol levels for those who drank green coffee exclusively. Since cortisol levels are linked to increased hormone and weight gain, the group claims that green coffee may be instrumental to fat and weight loss.
Raw coffee beans don’t only haven a rich supply of chlorogenic acid, but they also have other antioxidants that can keep harmful free radicals at bay. Antioxidants protect cells from free radicals which are responsible for cell death and DNA damage. Thus, the antioxidants in green coffee slows down aging by eliminating the free radicals that lead to aging our body systems.
For Mood and Focus:
Green coffee beans, like their roasted counterparts, both contain caffeine. Studies have long proven that caffeine, when taken moderately, can improve one's mental health by boosting memory, attention and mood. The caffeine content in green coffee is somewhat lower than regular coffee, but the effect is similar but more importantly green bean coffee extract has powerful neuroprotective properties that protect the brain from degeneration.
One of the properties of green coffee is that it's highly thermogenic, which means body temperature is raised for a certain amount of time, and during this period of time the body burns more stored fat and turning it into usable energy. Consider using green coffee bean extract as a natural pre-workout supplement as the caffeine will give energy while optimizing the thermogenic effect.
For Stronger Immune System:
The antioxidants in green coffee not only protects against free radical damage, but it also helps the immune system as well. Besides repairing damaged cells, antioxidants also collect toxins and flush them out via sweat and urination. With a strong immune system, our bodies enjoy less illness and disease.
Green coffee beans are a superfood with an abundance of health benefits. Whether you want to lose weight naturally by increasing your metabolic and thermogenic rates for optimized fat burning or you want to benefit from the abundance of antioxidants and their anti-aging properties, green coffee beans are worth a try.
