A study recently published in the British Journal of Nutrition shows that specific types of beans can drastically improve type 2 diabetes and lower blood pressure.
They’re widely available everywhere either fresh, roasted or as a supplement. And if you want a milder version of them, you can actually drink them.
Green coffee beans are the seeds of coffea fruits that have not yet been roasted. They are higher in a chemical called chlorogenic acid than roasted seeds, as the roasting destroys some of this chemical.
Chlorogenic acid and the green coffee beans that contain it have become very trendy and are thought to have all kinds of health benefits.
This new study suggests that at least some of these benefits are real.
The Iranian researchers recruited 43 male and female volunteers from a diabetes clinic in Tehran. Their ages ranged from 18 to 70. They all had a body-mass index of more than 25 kg/m2.
Researchers split them into two groups:
– one group that received a fake treatment,
– and another group that received two capsules of 186 mg of green coffee bean extract every day for a period of eight weeks.
They asked both groups to eat mostly plant-based foods, and to leave their levels of physical activity unchanged.
When they compared the groups after the eight weeks, they found that the green coffee extract consumers had lower fasting blood glucose, more sensitive responses to insulin, and lower systolic blood pressure.
