A hot cup of cappuccino is a favourite pick-me-up for many. Its smoky aroma and the carefully set foam on the brink of the cup call out for a quick sip that makes you feel instantly energized and charged up. As a coffee lover, you may think you know everything about it but that may not be the case. A new variety of coffee has been creating a lot of buzz and if you happened to have missed it, we’ll update you. Green coffee beans are seeds of the coffee fruits that are not roasted unlike regular coffee. These coffee beans have a higher amount of cholorgenic acid which is believed to have numerous health benefits. The amount of this compound reduces as you roast the coffee beans to make them into what we generally consume.
According to Dr. Simran Saini from Fortis Hospital, “Chlorogenic acid in green coffee acts as an antioxidant. It helps in controlling high blood pressure, aids weight loss and maintain blood sugar levels in the body.”
Green coffee has particularly become popular for its weight loss benefits just like green tea. This light coloured brew that is enjoyed without milk or sugar and has a very mild flavour is known to help you lose weight in many ways. A study published in the Indian Journal of Innovative Research and Development (IJIRD) indicates that the miracle active ingredient called chlorogenic acid found in green coffee helps in weight loss. Since the beans are not roasted the compound retains its potent properties that benefit the body. It helps in melting the unwanted fat and thus, aids weight loss. Not just that, here are five amazing weight loss benefits of drinking green coffee regularly you may have not known.
