Food supplements have become popular in weight loss management these days. Some of these products are Garcinia cambogia and green coffee bean extract. Both have become popular because of the said positive effects that they have on people who use them.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF GARCINIA CAMBOGIA AND GREEN COFFEE BEAN EXTRACT
Separately, both plants contain active ingredients that are unique to them but it is safe to say that both can improve metabolic process though they may function in different ways.
Green coffee bean contains chlorogenic acid. Though found to be the active ingredient in green coffee bean, the ways it functions once inside the body is still not fully understood. Conversely, some professionals assume that it affects the rate of glucose released by the liver. Slow glucose liberation of the liver will force the body to metabolize it other source of energy like fat tissues.
In Garcinia cambogia, hydroxitric acid is the one that does the action. Just like in green coffee bean extract, garcinia cambogia is used by many people for weight loss but very little is known about how it works when inside the body. However, it is known to play a part in increasing serotonin levels in the brain which inhibits people from eating. This property of garcinia is beneficial to people who overeat when they are emotionally stressed. There is also some evidence that hydroxitric acid can inhibit the release of citrate lyase, an enzyme needed by the body to convert carbohydrates into fat molecules.
Though both work when used separately, there are people who contemplate on using both food supplements together. The effects may look promising but people must consider taking them the supplements individually first and observe their effects before considering taking them altogether.
SCIENTIFIC STUDIES ON GARCINIA CAMBOGIA AND GREEN COFFEE BEAN EXTRACT
Though very little still understood regarding the mechanisms of Garcinia cambogia and green coffee bean extract, preliminary studies have already been made concerning their effectivity as weight loss food supplements.
Studies on green coffee bean extract showed that the patients who took the food supplement lost more weight than those who did not even without changing anything on their diet or exercise routines. Similar results were observed on people who took Garcinia cambogia.
