CoffeeGenic® Green Coffee Extract
200 mg 90 vegetarian capsules

Item Catalog Number: 01604

People who take extraordinary steps to limit their carbohydrate exposure may still be experiencing higher-than-desired blood sugar levels throughout the day. The reason is that blood sugar can surge to high levels following meals. And that high level can last for hours … even an entire day!

Studies show even in people with normal fasting glucose levels, gaining control of after-meal surges may provide additional support for cardiovascular and metabolic health.1-3

Green coffee extract is a natural compound that addresses this widespread problem. In fact, a 400 mg dose was shown to induce a remarkable 24% drop in after-meal blood sugar after 30 minutes while 200 mg generated a 14% drop!4 The reason is chlorogenic acid, a polyphenol found in the green coffee bean.

Chlorogenic acid has been shown to inhibit excess activity of glucose-6-phosphatase.5-7 The glucose-6-phosphatase enzyme triggers glucose formation from non-carbohydrate substrates and glycogen release from the liver, both of which can create excess glucose in the blood. Neutralizing excess glucose-6-phosphatase is essential for most people to achieve optimal glucose control.

Another means by which chlorogenic acid supports healthy after-meal glucose levels is by targeting the alpha-glucosidase enzyme. This intestinal enzyme breaks apart complex sugars and enhances their absorption into the bloodstream.8

Chlorogenic acid also increases the signal protein for insulin receptors in liver cells.9

Why CoffeeGenic® Green Coffee Extract?

Coffee grows on trees and the fruit is a berry. The berry contains green seeds, which are the “coffee beans.” The outer part of the berry is washed away to get to the seeds. The seed has a higher amount of phenolic acids than the berry.10 

The problem with the roasted coffee you drink is that much of the beneficial phenolic content of the coffee beans is destroyed during the roasting process.

CoffeeGenic® Green Coffee Extract is produced from organically grown green Arabica coffee beans through a patented extraction process. The resulting green coffee extract is standardized to 50% chlorogenic acids for maximum potency … maximum effect in helping to maintain healthy glucose levels already within normal range.10

A 200 mg clinical dose of this extract was shown to induce a 14% drop in aftermeal glucose spikes within 30 minutes4 … and is ideal for those who need some glucose management support.

This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Results may vary.

At first I used this product everyday but I use so many of your products I started to target it for particular food situations, and then checked my sugar numbers later, or the next morning and compared it with when I used to take it everyday. NOW I take it just before I eat a high carb meal (Pasta or rice, potatoes, carrots yams, beets, any sugar desserts). I don't take it when I eat only proteins, fats, and &/or lots of non-root vegetables. This seems to be working very nicely. Since I take 25 to 35 pills a day this makes it more affordable and manageable. My numbers spike when I forget, which to me means it's seeming to be effective.

My wife and I have used green coffee extract 2 200 mg caps prior to every meal for 90 days plus along with restricted calories < 1400/day hoping to lose a few pounds. Results have been highly disappointing with no weight loss. The research article in LEF June magazaine misled us into an expensive and useless purchase. We are most disapppointed!

Comments about Life Extension CoffeeGenic® Green Coffee Extract, 200 mg 90 vegetarian capsules:

This product works well to lower post-prandial (after meal) blood glucose spikes. My numbers are about 20 mg lower after meals if I take this 20-30 minutes prior to eating. I have not noticed any effects from the caffeine, using one 200 mg capsule 2 times per day. I also use Cinsulin 3 times per day and it works about the same for me. To get maximum benefits, you have to anticipate your meal times by about a half hour, so getting in the habit of doing this takes a week or two. I have no idea how this works for weight loss. I am thin already and do not have weight loss as a goal, but it seems logical that lowering blood glucose would help prevent the body from converting excess glucose to fat.

    Comments about Life Extension CoffeeGenic® Green Coffee Extract, 200 mg 90 vegetarian capsules:

    I was taking 2 pills before meals high in carbs....within an hour, I was shaking
    as if someone gave me a lot of coffee. I tried one pill with the same effects. I guess if you're not sensitive to caffeine, this might be fine. Just didn't like the side effects and didn't continue to take it
