GRECOBE® Green coffee bean Extract has strong anti-oxidant properties. The Green coffee bean extract has Cholorogenic acids, dietary polyphenols which act to help reduce free radicals in the body. Chlorogenic acids are phytochemicals found in green coffee beans but when the coffee beans are roasted, the chlorogenic acids are destroyed. They have been long known for their beneficial properties. This active ingredient makes green coffee bean an excellent agent to absorb free radicals; as well as helping to avert hydroxyl radicals, both which contribute to degradation of cells in the body. It has been touted as being able to reduce blood sugar levels and potentially exert an anti-diabetic effect. It has also been implicated in weight loss and exerting an anti-obesity effect.
