Green Coffee Bean Hype

We know that drinkinggreen_coffee_beans_image  coffee can have health benefits, but the trend of unroasted coffee beans for weight loss may not hold the same promise. In a new study with mice, scientists
in Australia showed that the extract didn’t have any effect on body fat, but it did have a harmful impact on the mice’s insulin resistance. The group of mice  eating the green beans extract gained the same amount of weight as the control  group, but this group also was not processing insulin, which led to higher  amounts of sugar in their blood, a sign of diabetes. It is only one study so  far, but it does suggest that more research is needed before anyone can  responsibly say it has benefits.
