CoffeeGenic® Green Coffee Extract
400 mg 90 vegetarian capsules

Item Catalog Number: 01620

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.1-4

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!5  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.6-8 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 inhibition of the alpha-glucosidase enzyme. This intestinal enzyme breaks apart complex sugars and enhances their absorption into the bloodstream.9

Chlorogenic acid also increases the signal protein for insulin receptors in liver cells.10

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.11 

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 thesegreen coffee beans. 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.11

This higher potency standalone version is the same clinical dose shown to induce a 24% drop in aftermeal glucose spikes within 30 minutes5 … and is ideal for those who need additional glucose management support.

We read up on Green coffee being useful to balance out blood glucose levels and decided to give it a try. Along with a healthy diet and life style, this DOES seem to help the numbers stabilize for my husband. We are looking for a "wave" when it comes to his pre meal and post meal numbers... not "spiking". The "wave" is here and we are very happy about it. Thank you.

    Comments about Life Extension CoffeeGenic® Green Coffee Extract, 400 mg 90 vegetarian capsules:

    My aunt had bought this product for me. I was taking it three times a day and didn't really feel like it was working. I was losing weight though, so I continued. I ran out about 3 weeks ago and I have gained 15 pounds because I just want to eat everything in my sight. It was working, but just not as noticeable as I thought it was going to be.

      Comments about Life Extension CoffeeGenic® Green Coffee Extract, 400 mg 90 vegetarian capsules:

      I take the product 3 times a day just before meals. I find it is very easy to take because you don't have to wait so many minutes before a meal to take...so remembering is a breeze! I found that this product is effective but I didn't drop a lot of pounds fast. Some could be due to the fact that I have thyroid issues, but I have had slow steady weight loss over the last year. It has been only 15 pounds, but I'd rather have something rather than nothing. I also workout 4-5 times a week, which I have been doing for over a year and really didn't lose any weight just exercising so I think this helped.

          Comments about Life Extension CoffeeGenic® Green Coffee Extract, 400 mg 90 vegetarian capsules:

          I tried other Green Coffee Bean extracts but this one is the only one that really works. It takes inches off my waist within days. I take about 2 capsules per day (before heavier meals) and that is enough to keep my weight where I want it to be (122 lbs). It also keeps my blood glucose low. My fasting blood glucose is usually 85 to 95 in the morning and higher during the day after meals. It goes down to about 65 after taking one capsule of CoffeeGenic Green Coffee Extract in the middle of the day.

              Although it helps to manage my hunger throughout the day, the most dramatic and useful change has been that it has eliminated my getting hungry in the middle of the night and wanting to get up for snacks. This is a big, big help. I am finding it useful to use the product three times a day.

                While I think many who have given this a poor review are simply the exception (and suspect other dietary intakes are preventing the weight loss), for the more protective benefits of CoffeeGenic from sugar crashes (glucose control) are out of this world.

                I'm a person who is generally fit and don't have weight issues. So this product isn't needed for that. I do use it to deal with hidden sugars within foods and see it's use for me as a deep level of protection again that. I'll continue to buy it for the rest of my life.
