Which Green Coffee Bean Extract Works Best?

There are some basic easy-to-understand criteria that should be followed in order to select a green coffee bean extract product that will give you the best chance to achieve the benefits you are looking for. The criteria listed below will enable you to select a product that conforms to the criteria suggested by Dr. Oz when he recommended green coffee supplements in 2012.

The best green coffee supplements should be:

1) 100% Pure Read the labels carefully. Pure means no additional ingredients whatsoever and no fillers, no binders, and no added ingredients. There should only be one ingredient listed which should be green coffee bean extract. Even if the label says “pure” be sure to read the ingredients label to verify the product is, in fact, pure. If a website does not include the product ingredients label, that website and product should be avoided.  Click here to see the ingredients label for our #1 recommended product Perfect Green Coffee.

2) Chlorogenic Acid Level 40% to 50% – Chlorogenic acid is an antioxidant present in green coffee beans that some observers believe is the component in raw unroasted green coffee beans that provide a number of potential healthy benefits . Green coffee beans are the most potent plant source of chlorogenic acid. Many nutrtional supplement companies and other observers state that a chlorogenic acid level of 40% to 50% is best. Our favorite product Perfect Green Coffee has a chlorogenic acid level of 50% making it among the most potent green coffee products available.

3) Lab Verified The purity and chlorogenic acid level should be lab-verified by a certified testing lab. The brand Perfect Green Coffee fits this criteria and the relevant portion of the Certificate of Analysis is posted here on HealthFoodPost.com. Click here to see.

4) Made In The USA – The product should be manufactured in the USA or another trusted location with top-notch quality controls. Beware of products that do not disclose where they are made. Note: Some popular products indicate Made in PRC. For those who are not aware, PRC is the Peoples Republic of China. Our #1 green coffee pick Perfect Green Coffee is made in the USA.

5) Manufactured under FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) – Look for this on websites to verify that (like Perfect Green Coffee) the product you are considering is manufactured in a facility that conforms to these standards.

Our #1 Pick For Best Quality/Best Value is…

Green Coffee Review – Which Is Best?

Green Coffee Bean Extract & Chlorogenic Acid

green bean coffee cup

Some research has demonstrated that raw unroasted green coffee beans, or “green coffee bean extract” may offer a number of potential healthy benefits.

Green coffee beans are coffee beans, which have not been roasted. And green coffee bean extract is an extract from the unroasted green coffee bean.

If green coffee is ground and roasted like regular coffee, it has very little taste. In fact, coffee brewed with green coffee beans would be extremely bitter. So, folks who wish to supplement with a chlorogenic acid product would probably prefer taking a green coffee bean extract supplement rather than drinking something with no taste or a bitter unpleasant taste.

The coffee that most of us love to drink, by the way, derives its’ flavor from the roasting process.


Recent News About Health Benefits From Coffee Consumption


Some Interesting Coffee Facts:

Coffee is the 2nd most consumed beverage worldwide, second only to water.

The global coffee industry earns an estimated $60 billion annually.

Coffee was first consumed in the 9th century in Ethiopia.

According to the Harvard School of Public Health, Drinking up to six cups a day of coffee is not associated with increased risk of death from any cause, or death from cancer or cardiovascular disease.

Arabica coffee is the most popular because of its taste and aroma.

More than 500 billion cups of coffee are served worldwide each year.

According to WebMD.com: “A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are: Less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia, and have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes.”

Coffee beans are actually inside coffee berries.

According to an Abstract published on PubMed.gov (NIH) by author Jane Higdon from Oregon State University…”Coffee is a complex mixture of chemicals that provides significant amounts of chlorogenic acid and caffeine.” and “The results of epidemiological research suggest that coffee consumption may help prevent several chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes mellitus, Parkinson’s disease and liver disease (cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma).”

In the 17th Century coffee was banned in Turkey (when Turkey was part of the Ottoman Empire.

Coffee is one of the most important agricultural crops.

In a study of about 130,000 Kaiser Permanente health plan members, people who reported drinking 1-3 cups of coffee per day were 20% less likely to be hospitalized for abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias) than nondrinkers, regardless of other risk factors.

It takes approximately 42 coffee beans to make an espresso.

The average American coffee drinker consumes about 3 cups daily.

Recent research has demonstrated a number of health benefits from coffee consumption.

According to the Mayo Clinic website…” most studies find an association between coffee consumption and decreased overall mortality and possibly cardiovascular mortality, although this may not be true in younger people who drink large amounts of coffee.”

Brazil is the largest coffee exporting nation.

Vietnam is a major producer of Robusta coffee beans.

In 2009, a study of 83,700 nurses enrolled in the long-term Nurses’ Health Study showed a 20% lower risk of stroke in those who reported drinking two or more cups of coffee daily compared to women who drank less coffee or none at all. That pattern held regardless of whether the women had high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, and type 2 diabetes.

A 2009 study from Finland and Sweden showed that, out of 1,400 people followed for about 20 years, those who reported drinking 3-5 cups of coffee daily were 65% less likely to develop dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, compared with nondrinkers or occasional coffee drinkers.

Robusta coffee beans are lower in price than Arabic coffee beans.

The word “coffee” probably comes from Kaffa, a region in Ethiopia where coffee beans are believed to have been discovered.

According to CoffeeandHealth.org…” The effect of coffee consumption on blood pressure is relatively small and not exclusively dependent on caffeine. More factors appear to be involved, some having opposite effects on blood pressure.”

Coffee drinking in moderation contributes to our daily fluid intake and does not lead to dehydration, or significant loss of body fluid

Research also suggests that, in both men and women, drinking coffee in moderation may reduce their risk of stroke, but these results should not yet be considered conclusive.

The European Food Safety Authority recently stated that caffeine improves both sports performance (endurance exercise) and increases attention and alertness.

In August 2010, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) stated that moderate caffeine drinking — less than 200 mg per day, or about the amount in 12 ounces of coffee — doesn’t appear to have any major effects on causing miscarriage, premature delivery, or fetal growth.

In 2011 Brazil was the world leader in production of green coffee, followed by Vietnam, Indonesia and Colombia. Arabica coffee seeds are cultivated in Latin America, eastern Africa, Arabia, or Asia. Robusta coffee seeds are grown in western and central Africa, throughout Southeast Asia, and to some extent in Brazil.

Answers to Some Commonly Asked Questions

What is chlorogenic acid?
Chlorogenic acid is a substance present in green coffee bean extract that has been studied and researched over the years.

What is meant by “pure” green coffee bean extract?
Pure means no additives whatsoever. None! In other words the product should have no fillers and nothing at all added. But consumers need to read labels to verify that the product contains no fillers or other unnecessary ingredients or preservatives. Many products labeled pure are not really pure. So, be sure and read the labels and if there is something on the label you do not understand, call or email the company. And if there is no products ingredients label on the company website, avoid the product.

What Is GCA and GCA®?
This is an abbreviation for green coffee antioxidant. It’s also a brand of green coffee extract containing 42% chlorogenic acid.

What is Svetol®?
This is a brand of green coffee bean extract containing 45% chlorogenic acid.

Is it important that green coffee supplements contain GCA or Svetol?
No. GCA and Svetol are brand names. They are promoted as good brand names but brand names are not important. Claims that green coffee bean extract supplements must contain the brand names GCA or Svetol in order to be considered authentic are not correct. The chlorogenic acid level and the purity of the product are important, not the brand names. By steering clear of the hype surrounding brand names, consumers can save money with a quality product such as Perfect Green Coffee.

What Is GCBA?
This is an abbreviation for green coffee bean antioxidant.

What is GCBE?
This is an abbreviation for green coffee bean extract.

What to look for on a product ingredients label?
The product label should state the chlorogenic acid level (see above) since chlorogenic acid is the antioxidant present in raw coffee beans that consumers shopping for green coffee supplements are looking for. As mentioned previously, there should be (1) no fillers, (2) no binders, and (3) no artificial ingredients. So, read the ingredients labels carefully. Ingredients labels should be displayed on all websites offering nutritional supplements.

What else to look for when evaluating a product?
Make sure you know that the product was manufactured in a country with proper quality controls.

Does it matter if the product is made from Arabica or Robusta coffee beans?
No, absolutely not. There is much more information about this subject elsewhere on this website.


  1. I was a little wary about all the hype, but ended up trying the green coffee bean pills…I LOVE them! I’ve lost 13 pounds in 6 weeks and feel great! I’m not jittery and have a sense of overall well-being. I’m glad I tried it and will definately by it again.

    • Hi Shelby, first I want to start off by saying congrats on the weight loss!! I have been looking all over the internet for the best green coffee because all the website’s say the same thing. I had a few questions. How did you find the product and are you stil taking them? How many pills do you have to take a day? Are you on a special diet? Sorry for all the questions, I just dont want to buy the wrong product. Thanks!!!

    • Very good for you..Keep up the good work!!

    • How many pills did u take a day, in total how many mg. I just started then Dec 22, 2013 and need help.

  2. I just heard about Green Coffee Bean extracts about two months ago. I did not realize they existed until a friend told me about and she heard about it on Dr. Oz. I read that Dr. Oz does not endorse any brand but he did recommend what to look for when buying. I decided to give it a try and ended up losing weight. I was very surprised since I really did not work out. The coffee beans made we want to start working out because I had so much energy. I say if you are on the fence try them from a place that will allow returns and free shipping if you order online. Good Luck!

  3. GCBE is supposed to help with weight loss but watch out for side effects. People report itching, dizziness, headache, bloating and diarrhea as common side effects. The itching seems to be the result of increased liver enzymes from increased liver function, which helps move fat out of the body. It is recommended you start with a low mg dose (400 mg) to see what effect it has on you and build off that.

  4. Hi,

    Do you supply the same product to india.

  5. And if so is it viable to take the same while doing cardio and heavy weight training

  6. Hi,

    Since its been 11 long days that i have not yet received the package; Is it not possible that the same can be delivered in future with the help of bodies like “DHL”, “FED-EX” or “UPS” cos postal services in INDIA is hell of a headache.

    Please i request the admin to see to this matter ………..


    • Customers have the option during checkout to select delivery via USPS Express or UPS expedited. But these are more costly. Most customers choice USPS first class because it is not expensive, but deliveries to India are taking about 20 business days. Of course, this is out of our control. It’s the postal services from USA to India that cause the delay. Sorry for the inconveniece. Next time consider the other shipping options. We appreciate your business!

  7. How does green coffee bean extract tastes like?? Need a lil more information abt its taste???
    Thanks! 🙂

    • Perfect Green Coffee supplements are capsules, not a drink, so there is no taste. Any drink made from raw green coffee beans would taste bitter and bad, unless camouflaged by other ingredients. Also, in pill form you are getting much more chlorogenic acid than you could from a beverage.

  8. can you take 1 capsule of 800mg in the morning and 1
    capsule of 800mg 30 minutes before dinner

    • Yes. The Perfect Supplements dosage instructions on the bottle recommends up to 4 capsules daily, each capsule being 400 mg. So, the bottle indicates up to 1600 mg daily is fine.

      • You mentioned that perfect green coffee recommends 4 capsules per day at 400mg. However that is incorrect my bottle states 3 capsules per day. So which one is it, 3 or 4 capsules per dAy ?

        • The current label on Perfect Green Coffee states 1 capsule 3 times per day. The older label stated 3 capsules per day with a maximum of 4 capsules per day. So, it is currently 3 capsules max, and that has been revised from a max of 4.

  9. sandeep says:


    At last I have my 4 packs of “GREEN COFFEE BEAN EXTRACTS” .

    In short it takes 28 to 30 days to ship the same from US to my place may differ with other destinations in INDIA.

    Once again thanks to the admin, U.S. post and Indian postal service.

    • Thanks for ordering Perfect Green Coffee. Glad it arrived. Enjoy the product. Let us know how you like it.

    • hey sandeep i am also from india and i also wanted to try this green coffee but m really not sure that i should buy this or not..but reply and tell me that have lost any weight or not… i am waiting..

  10. beccalee says:

    I purchased a bottle of Green Coffee Bean Extract at my local Whole Foods Store and although it contains 50% chlorogenic acids and each capsule is 400mg Green Coffee Extract, other ingredients are: Silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and cellulose. Capsule consists of hydroxypropymethylcellulose. No wheat, no gluten, no soybeans, no dairy, no egg, no fish/shellfish, no peanuts/tree nuts. Do these “other ingredients” make the pills less successful for weight loss?

    • Hi Beccalee,
      Don’t know but for general health considerations we avoid supplements with unnecessary ingredients or fillers. I’d be curious what you paid for the green coffee product at Whole Foods and how many capsules are in the bottle. I would bet that Perfect Green Coffee is less expensive, and a much better value.

  11. Fat -Pam says:

    Hi admin,

    Do you have to continually use the pills a period? or a bottle would suffice?

    I think someone can lose weight & gain it back in no time ,if he/she stops using the pills.

  12. sharron hall says:

    Can anyone tell me can i take two coffee bean pills in the morning and two be 4 dinner

    • The Perfect Green Coffee label indicates a dosage 1 capsule 3 times per day (they’re 400 mg each) but allows for up to 4 capsules for a total of 1200 mg to 1600 mg (maximum) per day.

  13. Christina says:

    Pls do u have this product in Nigeria? Which 1 is good for me that can’t work fast? How many do I need to get my result? Pls help SOS. I need this stuff fast. Waiting 4 your reply thank u.

  14. I read somewhere that this works better with an additional supplement such as a colon cleanse. Is this true? Is there something that the green coffee extract should/can be taken with, or just use this product alone? I trying to gather as many facts as possible before deciding to purchase.

    • Hi Ashley,
      Take Perfect Green Coffee by itself. There is NO science to suggest it should be taken with a colon cleanse.

  15. Hey i was wondering how big are the pills? PLZ REPLY IF U KNOW!!!!!!!

    • Hi Amie,
      The Perfect Green Coffee capsules are moderate in size, and certainly not large by most standards. Most people should have no issue swallowing them comfortably.

      • Thank u admin you were right the pills are really small! i’m not a big fan of pills but these were easy! thanks a bunch!!!! 😀

  16. hey i can’t order from the internet (Don’t ask why) so i was wondering do they sell the “Perfect green coffee” pills at Mother’s Market? iv found some other kinds there. Plz reply admin

  18. Can you take the green coffee pill if you are on anti-depressants/anxiety meds?

    • Hi Jenny,
      We are not allowed to answer these type questions since doing so would fall into the category of giving medical advice. So, please consult your doctor and/or pharmacist.

  19. Vediya Rampaul says:

    Hi, has anyone ever tried the raw beans? I live in the Caribbean and I have access to the beans on the trees. Would appreciate some advise on the dosage.

  20. Hey so I just started taking the pure green pills but there only 45% chlorogenic acids in it. Is that ok? How do I know if there not fakes? I got them at walgreens

    • The product ‘Perfect Green Coffee’ is 50% chlorogenic acid. It is 100% pure, made in the USA, and is lab-verified for purity and 50% chlorogenic acid content. Plus the price is much better than most, especially when buying 3 bottles or more. We think Perfect Green Coffee is the highest quality and the best value. Since we don’t know which brands Walgreens sells, its impossible to compare but when comparing to any of the products we have seen at, for instance, Whole Foods, Perfect Green Coffee is the much better value.

  22. hie
    as i have released, this product is purchased only on the online. I just want to know whether is it possible to purchase using cash rather than Credit Or Debit Card? i’m interested on buying please reply

    from Botswana

    • Yes. When on the order page and when you get to the section that says “Payment Information”….there is a drop down menu where you can indicate “Payment Method.” Just select either Check By Mail, or Money Order and proceed with your order by following instructions.

  23. Just wondering is the green coffee 800 drink the same as the green coffe bean extract, side effects of the drink gave me heart pulptations, very thirsty and feeling gitery, not sure if I should be taking the green coffee capsule.

    • We are not familiar with the “green coffee 800 drink” you are taking therefore have no idea what ingredients are contained in that product. You should read the ingredients label to see what is in it. It could be loaded with caffeine and other ingredients. The product we offer here on HealthFoodPost.com is called “Perfect Green Coffee” and it is 100% pure and we have heard had any customers comments about negative side effects.

  24. Hi,
    I take each pill half an hour before my meal, but if my meal is delayed, say an hour, how long does the positive effect of the pill last? I am losing weight, but slowly, so perhaps this is the reason for the limited weight loss.


    • Don’t fret about exact timing. They say it is best to take 30 minutes prior to meals, but being precise with timing is probably not realistic for most people. Additionally, the science and data is fairly new and evolving so a proper answer as to how long the effects of the green coffee capsules and chlorogenic acid remain in your system is not exactly known.
