The green coffee bean
Here in Manhattan, people are lined up at every cubbyhole coffee spot for their morning java. But here’s the thing… studies show that caffeine increases risk of diabetes, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, heart trouble, and more!
Drink too much, and you won’t just risk losing sleep (which, as I mentioned earlier this week, leads to weight gain) but you’ll also put yourself in danger of adrenal fatigue, which can lead to foggy thinking, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia.
Of course, coffee beans do have some significant health benefits. They’re powerful natural antioxidants that fight cancer, heart disease, and other killers. But you won’t get these effects from the cuppa joe at the corner diner. That’s because the strongest antioxidant properties are found in an extract from raw, unroasted coffee beans (called, appropriately, green coffee bean extract).
This extract contains more antioxidants than black tea (and more than brewed coffee). It’s also naturally low in caffeine-less than 3 percent-so there’s no risk of the caffeine-related problems I mentioned above.
If you’re in good health, there’s nothing wrong with an occasional cup of coffee But if you have diabetes or blood sugar problems-and, these days, that includes most of us-take caution.
Green coffee bean extract will give you all the health benefits without the potentially dangerous caffeine.
