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.
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.
This higher potency standalone version is the same clinical dose shown to induce a 24% drop in aftermeal glucose spikes within 30 minutes … and is ideal for those who need additional glucose management support
Because this extract also helps inhibit the absorption of calories from starches and sugars, it’s not surprising that it was also shown to induce weight loss. In a placebo-controlled, human study, subjects who took 350 mg of green coffee extract three times daily before meals lost an average of 17.6 pounds — over 10% of body weight — after just 12 weeks! There was also an average 4.44% reduction in body fat percentage!

Excellent blood sugar control and antioxidant. Using this along with LEF's PQQ and 7,000 IU vitamin D. My energy is very high and stays high all day. 6/19 Update: Still using this with great success. Good alone or with any of your favorite sugar supps, particularly R-Lipoic Acid.
Probably not Organic as stated

I purchased this product because the iHerb product description states the product is made from "organic" beans. However the product description on the manufacture's website and the product label make no mention of organic. This is obviously a serious concern as pesticides used on coffee trees are among the most noxious and damaging to the human body. Many of these pesticides are chemically converted during the roasting process - reducing the danger. But this is obviously not the case with Green beans.
Good ingredient list

To be honest I found it having the same effect (milder maybe) as the other green coffee brand. I wanted to try this one because of the ingredient list that is clean. I'm not sure I will repurchase it because of the price but if you can afford it I recommend it since it is a healthy choice and a good brand
