Chlorogenic acid, the active ingredient in green coffee extract, looks mildly promising for the millions of people who feel desperate to lose weight. There is one published study in humans, involving only sixteen subjects. This is a very small study, absurdly small, really. It was presented at a conference and has not been published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. Doubtlessly, other studies are underway.

Pharmaceutical companies fund most research on new medicines and drugs, and these companies are only interested in multi-billion dollar profits from drugs that can be patented. If this were a drug that could be patented by a pharmaceutical company, believe me, the industry would be very excited about it. Chlorogenic is a naturally-occurring substance that can't be patented, so high quality research will emerge slowly.

You can read about chlorogenic acid at scienceDaily.com. Just search for "green coffee." There's a Wikipedia article on chlorogenic acid. Based on mouse and test-tube studies, it seems mildly promising. However, most promising supplements turn out to be worthless in the long run. You might remember chromium picolinate. Many millions of dollars worth were sold, on the basis of a few test-tube studies. It's probably worthless.

The weight loss benefits of green coffee extract, if any, don't seem to have anything to do with caffeine, even though it's extracted from coffee beans, among other sources. Chlorogenic acid is apparently not a stimulant.

Vitamin and supplement manufacturers have known for a long time that consumers are willing to pay about $20 per month for their products. Most of the green coffee extracts turn out to cost about $20 per month if you take 1600 milligrams per day, the amount recommended by "experts" based on the one very small study on humans. You've got to do the arithmetic. Number of pills per bottle, dose per pill, cost per bottle. Most green coffee extract works out to around $20 per month, as this brand does, assuming the price doesn't change (about $20 as of this review). Don't pay more than that. If you can find it cheaper from a reputable manufacturer, that might be tempting. If you lose even a few pounds per month, $20 per month is well worth it.

One year later -- I took this stuff as suggested every day for two months. No weight loss. Your mileage my vary. I haven't met anybody who has lost weight on this product, and I haven't noticed fewer fat people on the street lately. Chances are, it's worthless.

I have taken about half of these and lost 10 lbs of fat.
I don't like the price, but I can live with it. I took one a day.

The pills seemed to help a lot to curb my appetite and helped to lose the lbs faster there were no side effects. Energy level was also higher. I would recommend this product to help anyone lose weight.

I tried this product for the first time on Dr. Mehmet Oz's TV show recommendation , and I think it's definitely helping me. Right now I am eating mostly salads with real blue cheese or oil & vinegar dressing, fresh vegetables like celery, radishes, green beans, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower (sometimes in alfredo sauce!), avocadoes, tomatoes, fresh lemon juice, lean meats like steak, turkey, chicken, ham, salmon, shrimp, cream in my coffee, eggs lots of ways including egg salad made with real mayonnaise, omelets, even bacon occasionally.

I'm enjoying my meals more because I am not "dieting" per se. I have cut out white foods in general (no bread or pasta or rice) but I am eating at will, and thoroughly enjoying it. Small meals mostly, but I eat till I'm satisfied, drink mostly water and green tea too. I have been doing this for a week and a half, and I am down by 5 lbs. It has been easy, I do not feel deprived, therefor I know I can eat like this and be happy, and lose weight too! YAAAAAAAAYY!!

I definitely attribute part of my success to these Green Coffee Bean Extract caps. I take 3 capsules a day, along with vitamins and probiotics, and 1 T. coconut oil daily.

Thank you Dr. Oz, and Amazon!

I have taken green coffe bean pills for several months, two different brands. I have had to make regular Doctor visits for the last 6 months and they weigh me every time. After my 3rd bottle, I still hadn't lost any weight at all when I went to write that on the review I read a review from someone who said that you had to take two pills twice a day because they were 500mg's and not the 800mg's that Oz reccomended. I thought that made sense, so I started taking 2 pills twice a day and put off giving the green coffee pills a bad review. Now I am just about done with my 3rd bottle, taking 2 pills twice a day. Yesterday I went to the Doctor and I had gained 5 pounds!!! This is the 3rd thing that Dr. Oz has reccomended that I have tried that did not work. 3 strikes and your out in my book, Dr Oz will no longer be watched in my home.

I used the Pure Green Coffee Bean Dietary Supplement; 800mg to see if it really worked to lose weight and by Golly it did!

I commenced using the product the last Monday in July and I have lost a total of 7 pounds!

I take two capsules in the morning totaling 800mg with 16 ounces of water. I wait about :30 minutes or more (because I get busy), I eat a yogurt, go work out with my trainer and come back and eat breakfast - bowl of cereal and a piece of fruit.

I take two capsules before lunch. I am often having a meeting and I have a salad with chicken or sometimes pasta with chicken and sauce and a mini dessert (chocolate).

If I eat a big lunch, my dinner either does not happen or it is small. I take two capsules before dinner. Each time I take the capsules, I drink 16 ounces of water. I also drink water with my meals and when I do my work out; so I am getting plenty of water.

This is important because of the high anti-oxidant rate the green coffee extract has. Also, after two straight weeks of taking it faithfully (and you must do this), you will urinate more during the night. For me, it is about 2-3 times. That can be a bit irritating when you are tired. You will also have more bowel movements, but nothing out of control like the runs or something.

Some have said they have more energy. I did not. My diet was the same. I do not over indulge and compensate when I have a heavier meal. However, I do like my chocolate.

I worked before I started taking the Green Coffee Extract and still do it now. A dress that I could only zip up part way 3 weeks ago, now zips up with ease. My dress in the hip area is still a bit snug, but not tight. Before I go to Italy on September 4, I will be able to fit this dress with right fit and sexy curvy look.

If you take this product, take it consistently. I take it three times per day; most recommend 2 times per day. I have no side effects. You do not get jitters from the caffeine because it is raw. People who say it does not work are not following a regimen. One has to be committed and dedicated. I really believe I will reach my 25 pound weight loss goal. With 7 down, I have 18 to go.

I will come back again and give you an update on September 19. I am thinking I will lose another 7 to 9 pounds. Green Coffee Extract is it!

I took these pills religiously for 6 weeks and lost 10 lbs! Without doing anything extra. Visible fat disappeared off my stomach and my jeans were falling off! However, as soon as I stopped taking them I had massive migrains for 2 days (i never even get headaches). I assume due to the caffeine hault. I also gained all the weight back within 3 weeks without changing anything other than stopping the pills. So I have mixed feelings on this product--Works! but dont stop taking them! I wonder how good it is for you? Never the less here I am about to purchase them again.

I must say upon receipt of my bottle I was extremely disappointed when I found that it also included cellulose, magnesium stearate, and silica. When I was researching manufacturers, I visited the Bodysuperior website and it clearly states the following...

"These are simply the highest quality green coffee bean extract capsules available anywhere! BodySuperior guarantees that you will not find a higher quality or better priced green coffee bean extract on the market. If you're looking for a premium high-potency green coffee bean supplement, look no further than BodySuperior Green Coffee Bean Extract 500mg"

I would highly recommend only purchasing supplements in which the manufacturer includes a close up photo of the label clearly stating the ingredients.
