Green coffee bean extract is the new buzz word in health circles. Green coffee beans are not a new product at all though. They've been around for as long as coffee itself. New studies prove that green coffee beans possess many of the anti-oxidants found in Green Tea and Grape Seed Extract.
Studies now show that Green Coffee Bean Extract also increases your body's metabolism and helps burn fat perhaps even better than Green Tea Extract.
According to author Hiroshi Shimoda, "If a human consumes one kilogram per day of food (2.2 pounds) containing 10 grams (.35 ounce) of green coffee bean extract for 14 days, the increase in body weight may be suppressed by 35 percent."
This constitutes more than speeding up metabolism and burning fat; Green Coffee Bean Extract actually suppresses weight gain. Count on it being the newest revolutionary Diet Wonder of the Decade!

Recipe for making Green Coffee Bean Extract
Green Coffee Beans
Any type of green, raw coffee bean may be used for this purpose. As with regular coffee making, the better beans from places like Columbia will be richer and full-bodied and thus produce a stronger Green Coffee Extract.
Distilled water is used because it contains no chlorine or minerals to contaminate the taste or properties of the Green Coffee Bean Extract.
A regular tea pot may be used for this purpose or even a medium sized sauce pan with lid. You can brew up as much as you feel you will need for 3 or 4 days. Or you can simply make the extract fresh each day much the same way as you would your coffee.
Use 2 ounces of Green Coffee Beans to 12 ounces of water. Place both in a tea pot or sauce pan and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and allow mixture to simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool for at least an hour. Remove the beans from the water with a slotted spoon or strainer.
Note: the longer the bean mixture sits, the stronger the extract will be.
Suggestions for use:
Green Coffee Bean Extract may be taken daily alone or mixed with other food and drink to make it more palatable. If taking the extract alone, drink one ounce in the morning and one ounce in the evening. Adding a teaspoon of raw sugar or honey gives the mixture a better taste.
You may experience changes in bowel movements or discoloration of urine. This is nothing to be alarmed about. If these changes are associated with pain, then discontinue use of Green Coffee Bean Extract.
