Green Coffee Bean
Green coffee beans are coffee beans that haven't been roasted. When coffee beans go through the roasting process, this reduces the amounts of chlorogenic acid in them, which is said to have multiple health benefits including increasing the ability to lose weight, lower blood pressure and to provide antioxidant properties. A typical dose of green coffee bean supplements for the average person is between 60 to 185mg each day. Discover our range of green coffee bean supplements here.

Green coffee supplements are recommended for people who are overweight or obese and trying to lose weight, as well as those with high blood pressure or diabetes, who have conditions linked to being overweight. Chlorogenic acid is believed to affect red blood cells in a way that blood pressure is greatly reduced, while also affecting metabolism and lowering blood sugar.
