Green Tea vs Green Coffee: Which One Is Your New BFF To Weight Loss?

There are a handful of ingredients that can help boost your metabolism and enhance weight-loss efforts. Two of those ingredients — green tea and green coffee — may already be part of your daily morning ritual, but they’re also sold in supplement form as green tea and green coffee extract. If fat loss is your goal, then these two green titans can really be your new BFFs!

Make Time For Tea

The extract of the Green tea leaves, has been recommended as a healthful drink for centuries with potential health benefits ranging from improved antioxidant status to cardiovascular support. Long-term consumption of green tea extract has been shown to support modest weight loss, around 2-3 pounds, over a 12-week period.

Green Is The New Black

Green coffee extract (GCE) is extracted from unroasted green coffee beans. Its main active ingredients are compounds known as chlorogenic acids, which are thought to be responsible for its weight-loss effects. You can extract the juice of these beans by boiling those in water or can take readymade pills. Chlorogenic acid may be able to promote fat loss by increasing the activity of PPARalpha—a gene involved in fatty-acid transport and oxidation—and reducing the creation of new fat cells through its antioxidant effects. You can lose almost 12 pounds over a 12-week period, when GCE is combined with diet and exercise.

What To Watch Out For

The weight-loss benefits associated with GCE and GTE are greatly reduced when you mix the extracts with milk and sugar. GTE and GCE are most effective when caffeine resistance is minimized. If you’re already a coffee addict, the benefits of green tea extract and GCE supplements will likely be less effective. Benefits of GTE and GCE may be maximized when consumed with water 2-3 hours before or after a meal. Start with a low dose, see how your body handles it, and then make adjustments from there.
