Simply put, green coffee beans are coffee beans that haven’t been roasted yet. Coffee beans, in their natural state, are green in colour. It is after they are roasted, that they turn brown and are sold to consumers. Unfortunately, this process, which supposedly produces the characteristic flavour of coffee by altering the chemical and physical properties of green coffee beans, also removes most of the chlorogenic acid from them. Hence, although there are other benefits of drinking coffee made out of regular coffee beans, it just doesn’t have the same medicinal properties as green coffee beans.
Why Green Coffee ?
Why choose Redhublin over other Green Coffee ?
A relatively new brand, Redhublin Coffee Beans and Leaf Extract has taken the market by storm. The product has strong antioxidant properties and is rich with a required percentage of chlorogenic acid, a dietary polyphenol which acts to help reduce free radicals in the body. Chlorogenic acid is an important phytochemical found in unroasted green seeds of the plant Coffea Arabica. However, during the roasting process, most of the natural antioxidants including chlorogenic acid are destroyed. Scientists have long known and have done research about its beneficial properties. Redhublin brings this miracle of nature to your coffee table.
History, Popularity, & Use of Green Coffee
We live in a world where everything is fast-paced – from fast cell phones to superfast cars to fast food services. Even our dreams, hopes, and aspirations seek instant gratification. The advent of industrialization has been a great boon to all mankind. We have been able to put men on the moon, harness the power of the atom, and cure diseases that we didn’t even know existed. But in this society of abundance and luxury, we seem to have forgotten the value of healthy lifestyle. We consume too much junk food and do not exercise as much as we should. This has led to a catastrophic slowdown in our metabolic system.
In the last two decades or so, obesity has emerged as a pandemic. It increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, and even some cancers. Regarded as a disease by itself, it is a leading preventable cause of death worldwide and is more prevalent in women than men.
While the consumption of coffee and the research into its health benefits go back centuries, the interest in green coffee is fairly new. In 2012, Dr. Oz, world’s foremost television doctor, cited green coffee as “the magic weight loss cure for every body type” on his internationally popular show, and since then, it has become a global craze as a weight loss supplement. A scientific study conducted in the same year and published in the reputed Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity: Targets and Therapy journal used green coffee bean extract with 50% chlorogenic acid to observe its overall effect on the weight of the subject. The result they found was groundbreaking. The weight and the body fat of each participant were reduced by 17 pounds and 16% respectively. Several other studies done over the years have shown that the green coffee beans and leaf extract are absolutely safe for human consumption. Only the consumers who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have hypoglycemia, heart disease, or high blood pressure should consult a doctor before using the supplement. The rest can do so without worry, and lead a healthy, happy life.
