Non-roasted coffee contains high concentrations of antioxidants.
Green coffee, in addition to the properties of weight loss, is also beneficial for lowering cholesterol levels and promoting concentration.
Green coffee has long had some success, thanks in particular for its properties for weight loss. This "special" type of coffee is nothing like a drink that we consumed in the morning to wake up. A significant difference between green and black coffee is that the latter is exposed to the Browning process, which changes color, aroma and taste. Roast coffee also loses some characteristics characteristic of green beans: in particular, it lacks natural antioxidants and polyphenols, including chlorogenic acid and some minerals.
The good qualities of green coffee that are directly linked to these substances are in large quantities. This coffee lowers blood sugar, slows the aging process, has anti-inflammatory and tonic effects on the body. How about caffeine? It is definitely present, but works differently because it is associated with chlorogenic acid. This condition causes the caffeine to slowly absorb the body so it stays in the blood for several hours and gradually appears over a longer period of time.
The characteristics of green coffee remain unchanged due to the fact that grain is not fried and does not undergo any treatment (except for drying in the sun). This enables us to fully utilize their useful features.
Check glucose levels
Many studies have confirmed that the consumption of coffee can lower blood sugar by reducing insulin resistance. This is due to chlorogenic acid that contrasts glycogenolysis (conversion of glycogen to glucose) while preventing the absorption of sugars into the intestines.
Protect the heart system
In addition to normalizing glucose levels, coffee can also lower cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood, thus a positive effect on lipid metabolism. So one of the benefits of green coffee is to prevent the accumulation of cholesterol in arteries, thereby preventing the most common diseases affecting the cardiovascular system.
Unroasted coffee contains high concentrations of antioxidants that prevent the aging of all cells in the body, retains its functionality and prevents the formation of free radicals that can lead to disease and tumors.
Because it contains caffeine, this type of coffee can stimulate brain function, giving better and longer focus, so it is recommended to use anyone who needs to maintain constant attention.
Improve physical performance
Caffeine is known to of course "wake up" the body, which reduces the feelings of fatigue. In addition, it stimulates metabolism to produce energy, ready to use.
Other characteristics of the green coffee include improved mood, as caffeine increases the production of dopamine (the hormone associated with good mood) and improves the immune response, due to the presence of the B group's vitamins, antioxidants and omega 3 and 6.
