Maintaining healthy glucose levels after meals may provide additional support for cardiovascular and metabolic health.1
Green Coffee Extract is a natural compound that promotes healthy blood sugar metabolism and helps maintain already-healthy glucose and insulin levels after meals.2 The reason could be its chlorogenic acid, a polyphenol found in the green coffee bean.
Chlorogenic acid inhibits the activity of glucose-6-phosphatase.3 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.
Chlorogenic acid also targets the alpha-glucosidase enzyme.4 This intestinal enzyme breaks apart complex sugars and promotes their absorption into the bloodstream.
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, as they have a high amount of phenolic compounds.
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 is produced from these green coffee beans. The resulting green coffee extract is standardized to 50% chlorogenic acids for optimal effect in helping to maintain healthy glucose levels already within normal range.
