CoffeeGenic Green Coffee Extract (containing GCA)
People who take extraordinary steps to limit their carbohydrate exposure may still be experiencing higher-than-desired blood sugar levels throughout the day. The reason is that blood sugar can surge to high levels following meals. And that high level can last for hours … even an entire day!
Studies show even in people with normal fasting glucose levels, gaining control of after-meal surges may provide additional support for cardiovascular and metabolic health.
Green coffee extract is a natural compound that addresses this widespread problem. In fact, a 400 mg dose was shown to induce a remarkable 24% drop in after-meal blood sugar after 30 minutes while 200 mg generated a 14% drop! The reason is chlorogenic acid, a polyphenol found in the green coffee bean.
Chlorogenic acid has been shown to inhibit excess activity of glucose-6-phosphatase. The glucose-6-phosphatase enzyme triggers glucose formation from non-carbohydrate substrates and glycogen release from the liver, both of which can create excess glucose in the blood. Neutralizing excess glucose-6-phosphatase is essential for most people to achieve optimal glucose control.
Another means by which chlorogenic acid supports healthy after-meal glucose levels is by targeting the alpha-glucosidase enzyme. This intestinal enzyme breaks apart complex sugars and enhances their absorption into the bloodstream.
Chlorogenic acid also increases the signal protein for insulin receptors in liver cells.9
Why CoffeeGenic Green Coffee Extract?
Coffee grows on trees and the fruit is a berry. The berry contains green seeds, which are the “coffee beans.” The outer part of the berry is washed away to get to the seeds. The seed has a higher amount of phenolic acids than the berry.
The problem with the roasted coffee you drink is that much of the beneficial phenolic content of the coffee beans is destroyed during the roasting process.
CoffeeGenic Green Coffee Extract (GCA) is produced from organically grown green Arabica coffee beans through a patented extraction process. The resulting GCA (green coffee extract) is standardized to 50% chlorogenic acids for maximum potency … maximum effect in helping to maintain healthy glucose levels already within normal range.
A 200 mg clinical dose of this extract was shown to induce a 14% drop in aftermeal glucose spikes within 30 minutes … and is ideal for those who need some glucose management support.
This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Results may vary.
