Activlab Green Coffee is a dietary supplement consisting of green coffee seeds extract with a guaranteed content of chlorogenic acid.
The product has a slimming effect. It promotes the reduction of superfluous body fat and boosts the metabolic rate. In addition, it has a number of health-promoting properties - it is a powerful antioxidant which accelerates the process of body detoxification, supports the management of blood sugar levels and improves digestion.
Green coffee is raw, ripening or ripe coffee beans that have not been subjected to smoking processes. The lack of thermal treatment means that they retain all valuable bioactive components, and are also much milder for the gastrointestinal tract and do not irritate the stomach. Like black coffee, green one is also a source of caffeine, which is the reason it has a stimulating effect.
Chlorogenic acid is a polyphenol that is present in huge amounts in the seeds of the coffee tree. Unfortunately, a typical heat treatment (roasting at a high temperature) causes its decomposing. This compound has an excellent effect on the human body, shows many interesting properties, and is most often used to accelerate the rate of weight loss and lower blood sugar levels.
Green coffee extract, especially the chlorogenic acid contained in it, has a positive effect on the metabolism and the rate of fat reduction. This has been confirmed by clinical trials involving the obese people. The group which received the green coffee extract lost weight much faster than the placebo control group. Similar effects were observed during tests on rodents.
Scientists have identified several mechanisms that are responsible for the slimming properties of green coffee and chlorogenic acid. The first one is the prevention of fat absorption and the intensification of the β-oxidation process. Another one is the stimulation of PPAR-α receptors, which are active mainly in the brown adipose tissue and influence the lipid metabolism. However, the most effective mechanism of action towards reducing body fat is the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism by limiting the absorption of carbohydrates.
Researchers estimate that chlorogenic acid can reduce intestinal glucose uptake by up to 80%. It works by inhibiting the activity of glucose transporters. It is a potent inhibitor of the G6PD enzyme and moreover it is likely to increase the concentration of GLP-1, which promotes the optimization of the insulin levels and the reduction of serum glucose concentration.
Regulation of blood sugar level
The mechanism of action described above is important not only from the body fat reduction point of view. It allows using green coffee also by people at the risk of type 2 diabetes. The studies have shown that obese people who regularly receive green coffee extract not only lose weight more quickly, but also have much lower blood sugar level and a better insulin response of the body.
While traditional black coffee is associated with a negative effect on blood pressure and a greater risk of hypertension, green coffee shows antihypertensive properties. Studies proved that people with high blood pressure who took chlorogenic acid-rich green coffee bean extract had lower blood pressure after a month. The blood vessels were also in a better condition - there was a significant improvement in endothelial function and increased nitric oxide synthesis.
The postulated mechanism of the hypotensive effect of green coffee seeds is associated with the inhibition of 11βHSD1 enzyme activity, which is involved, inter alia, in the production of cortisol. The aforementioned improvement of the structure of the blood vessels and the restoration of normal endothelial function is also of great importance.
It should be remembered that green coffee beans, like those roasted, are a source of caffeine. They have a stimulating and mobilizing effect. This is especially useful for people on a reducing diet, when the reduced supply of calories deprives the energy for action. Because of this it is difficult to stick to the training plan, you can also observe a decline in the mental form, problems with the memory and concentration. Green coffee supplementation may be a natural antidote for this type of discomfort.
To sum up, Activlab Green Coffee is an excellent choice for people who are looking for a safe support at the time of reduction. The supplement can also be recommended to people who want to take advantage of the stimulating effect of coffee, but because of too high blood pressure can not have the traditional ‘small black’.
The supplement includes a high dose of green coffee bean extract with guaranteed presence of chlorogenic acid. Based on the meta-analysis of clinical tests, the optimal daily dose of chlogorenic acid was set at 250 mg. Therefore, follow the manufacturer's instructions and do not take more than one capsule a day.
Although the manufacturer leaves a certain amount of freedom regarding the time of the supplementation, we suggest taking the supplement in the first half of the day. The caffeine present in it shows a stimulating effect, so if taken in the evening time may disturb the ‘body clock’ and make it difficult to fall asleep.
Some studies suggest that green coffee may interact negatively with metamorphine and other hypoglycaemic agents. If you take medicines to lower sugar levels, consult a specialist before implementing the supplements.

Green coffee bean extract (Coffea Arabica L.), anti-caking agent e470b, capsule (gelatin, dyes e132, e171).
The coffee bean extract, a source of polyphenols. Coffee seeds has chemical composition similar to green tea and grape seed. They neutralize free radicals and intensify burning processes and inhibit the formation of fat in the body, in addition to caffeine contains chlorogenic acid, an antioxidant that is slowing down the absorption of glucose from the gastrointestinal tract. It affects the fat reduction, intensifying the activity in combination with caffeine and EGCG. It is a component of many dietary supplements and slimming preparations improving health prevention.
Chlorogenic acid is a polyphenol found in many plants, including in particular the green fruit of the coffee plant, artichoke, nettle and prunes. Different than it is in the case of green coffee beans, roasted coffee beans contain a much smaller amount of the compound, since it is degraded during thermal treatment. This acid is antibacterial, antioxidant, and also a positive effect on glucose metabolism. Reduces the absorption of sugar from the gastrointestinal tract and improves insulin sensitivity. These properties of chlorogenic acid indicates that the compound is used in weight loss, which is also confirmed by a number of clinical trials carried out, showing its efficacy in reducing body mass. It should, however, be emphasized, that accurate analyses also showed that after the withdrawal of chlorogenic acid, they body mass may increase again.
Dosage: The recommended daily dose of chlorogenic acid is 800 mg.
