What are the ingredients that make green coffee such a miracle cure?
This time it is not primarily the caffeine that is contained in green coffee less than in normal types of coffee. A number of other ingredients are much more important:
Green coffee beans contain 18 different amino acids. This also includes essential amino acids that the body cannot produce itself. Green coffee is therefore a valuable source of proteins such as lysine and leucine.
Green coffee is characterized by a high chlorogenic acid content. Depending on the type of coffee, the chlorogenic acid content can be up to 70 percent. A large part of the health benefits are attributed to chlorogenic acid. At the same time, however, this is also responsible for the slightly sour taste of green coffee. Therefore, the chlorogenic acid in one or the other type of coffee is even deliberately reduced. In combination with our organic matcha, however, this results in a particularly delicious, balanced taste mixture.
Tocopherols are a form of vitamin E that have special cell-protecting properties, so free radicals have less chance of aging the skin. At the same time, it prevents diseases. Green coffee also contains tocopherols.
The effects of green coffee
Green coffee has many positive effects on our well-being. These are derived from the valuable ingredients. As with many dietary supplements and so-called "superfoods", the effect has not yet been scientifically proven. Of course, green coffee - whether taken as a capsule, prepared as a drink in a cup or in the particularly tasty combination with Matcha tea - does not replace a fundamentally healthy lifestyle or medical care.
Lose weight with green coffee
When it comes to the effects of green coffee, weight loss is the most frequently mentioned topic.
The reason for this is the high chlorogenic acid content. Chlorogenic acid inhibits the absorption of sugar in the intestine. Since the previous studies on this were either carried out on mice or did not meet the high standards of scientific evidence, green coffee should only be used as a support, but not as the sole measure as part of a diet for overweight.
In order to use the effect as a fat burner, green coffee should usually be taken about 30 minutes before a meal. As part of a diet, a fundamental change in diet is recommended, which can be effectively supported by our delicious Matchatto creations with green coffee.
The chlorogenic acid in green coffee is also the reason why the beans of the coffee plant can also have a supportive effect on diabetes. Inhibiting the absorption of sugar in the gut leads to lower blood sugar levels. This effect can be used especially if the green coffee is drunk shortly after a meal. People with diabetes are best advised to discuss their green coffee consumption with their doctor.
A study has shown that drinking green coffee can lower blood pressure. Green coffee is therefore a suitable drink for people with high blood pressure and may have a supportive effect. Medical supervision is also strongly recommended here.
Due to the high content of antioxidants, the consumption of green coffee can bind free radicals and thus protect against cell damage, slow down aging processes and help prevent diseases.
pick-me-up and focus
Even if the caffeine content of green coffee is lower than in the coffee beans that you usually put in the filter of your coffee machine, green coffee is a stimulant. The gentle, natural caffeine unfolds in connection with the other active ingredients and of course in connection with our matcha Tea has an encouraging effect, increases concentration and gives energy for sports, games and work.
Even though green coffee can have a positive effect on health, the fruit of the coffee tree is a stimulant that can also have side effects due to the caffeine content.
Some people are particularly sensitive to chlorogenic acid from the stomach. They should carefully test our products.
Some studies suggest that heavy consumption of green coffee may increase homocysteine levels. Basically, homocysteine is an important building block for the formation of amino acids and only dangerous to health to a large extent.
If you consume 2-3 cups of matchatto green coffee, there is no risk in this regard.
Information on how to prepare green coffee
