Green Coffee extract is produced by using unroasted coffee bean. The extraction process aim to concentrate the Chlorogenic acids, molecules having small phenolics bound to a Quinic acid group.
The Chlorogenic Acids in Green Coffee Extract are readily absorbed, and they themselves or their metabolites (such as ferulic acid) mediate many of the benefits of Green Coffee Extract.
Green Coffee Extract may weakly reduce body weight in overweight and obese persons (the mechanisms involved in this remains currently unknown, thought to be related to preventing carbohydrate uptake from the intestines after a meal). Some studies suggest that green coffee supplementation improve the blood health by increasing vasoreactivity and lowering blood pressure. This improvement benefit mainly to benefit people with poor vascular function or high blood pressure. Some studies have attributed this property to the ferulic acid metabolite.
Our opinion: Green Coffee Extract is a good and healthy ingredient. However, for validated all the benefits it is touted for, more studies should be done and we still consider that it seems to not be as efficient as some other supplements.
The nopal or barbarian fig (Opuntia ficus indica), is a widely distributed cactus but mostly founds in Mexico and Mediterranean area. It produces edible fruits with many seed from which we extract oil (see our prickly pear seed oil here) from which we can also produce jams. In numerous dietary supplements, the Nopal pulp is used claiming a positive effect on the blood sugar regulation.
Lastly, the extracts obtained from the cladode (which include the pulp) are used as a fat-absorbed in order to manage the weight.
