As most overweight people will tell you we are always looking for that magic pill that makes us “smaller”. The latest in this quest is “green coffee bean extract.” I read an article in our local paper about it. Apparently, Northern Nevada has become a hub for these types of alternative medicine cures and potions. One reason is that the taxes are better for warehousing products than in California were many of these companies started. And most importantly, “There’s a growing worldwide surge of interest in health-related products: supplements, boosters, vitamins, weight loss, weight maintenance and the like.” If you would like to read more about this surge of business our local paper is calling a “rebirth” click here.
The company that caught my eye is called “Nixeira — pronounced neshara. (It means snow in two languages, Welsh and Latin.” This company produces the “Green Coffee Bean Extract.” I went to the local Walgreens and was not able to find their product which has a “Plus” list of ingredient that help with antitoxins and it has added caffeine. But I did find a supplement for about nine dollars that I am going to give a try.
About a year ago, Bryan Sintay lost 60 pounds, which he credits to changing diet, juicing and using supplements. He owns “Kona Gold Coffee” here in Reno and founded “Nixeira”.
So what does this green coffee bean extract do to help me lose 60 pounds too? Here is what I have found. Green coffee bean extract contains Chlorogenic Acid, a naturally occurring agent in the body that helps your body burn fat efficiently and quickly. The chlorogenic acid is removed from the bean by the roasting process. This is because the chlorogenic acid is extremely bitter, not a desired taste in drinking coffee. So you are left with taking this “bitter” pill instead.
The pills are capsules and have no taste. You take them 10 – 20 minutes before eating your biggest meal of the day. I am supposed to start seeing results in less than 10 days. The claim is that it is not the caffeine but this acid that is working with your liver to rid your body of fat.
This was also featured on Dr. Oz. You may remember my previous experiment with Raspberry Key-tones. All that happened there was I burped raspberries. At least I didn’t turn into one.
If I do turn into a green coffee bean, at least I will be smaller!! Or maybe Captian Hook and I can use the bean and escape to “Neverland”.
