    The key ingredient in the green coffee bean is a very important natural active compound called chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid works by inhibiting the release of glucose in the body, while at the same time boosting the metabolism or the “burning” of fat in the liver. These two mechanisms work together to inhibit the absorption of fat and eliminate weight gain.

    You may be wondering if you can get the same effects from the coffee you drink with breakfast in the morning -- and the truth is that you can’t. When you roast coffee beans, you remove the chlorogenic acid. Green coffee beans are unroasted, have little aroma and are extremely bitter, because they contain over 50% chlorogenic acid. I’ve always said, when it comes to your health, “Bitter is better.”
