Substance In Green Coffee Beans Helps Control Blood Sugar, Could Treat Type 2 Diabetes

April 9, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Natural substances known as chlorogenic acids obtained from green coffee beans – and widely available as dietary supplements –  help control high blood sugar levels associated with type 2 diabetes, a U.S. researcher says. A small clinical study involving 56 men and women showed that 100, 200, 300 or 400 milligrams (mg) doses of green coffee extract significantly reduced blood sugar. According to Joe Vinson of the University of Scranton, "a simple natural pill or capsule” containing extract of green coffee would both help control blood sugar and foster weight loss, and be “a major advance in the treatment of type 2 diabetes”. Coffee is rich in chlorogenic acids, but most of them are broken down during roasting. Green coffee beans do not have that liability.
