What are raspberry ketones? And for that matter, what is green coffee bean extract, and how do both of these support healthy weight management?
First, the ketones—we use them to enhance our Green Coffee Bean Extract. These are the organic compounds that make raspberries smell like raspberries. We already know that raspberries are high in antioxidant properties, but a 2005 Japanese study of raspberry ketones found they had effective fat-burning properties. The researchers fed rats a high-fat diet and found that those who also consumed ketones gained less weight than those who had none. Those findings were impressive, but as the WSJ’s Aches and Claims column notes, no major published study of human clinical trials on ketones exists to provide conclusive results.
A lot of weight loss supplements on the market contain large amounts of caffeine or other stimulants that can potentially give people unwanted jitters!
WSJ interviewed our Reserveage Chief Innovation Officer Rob Maru, who agreed the Japanese study on ketones was encouraging but said more definitive research is needed. “As a stand-alone,” he said, raspberry ketones do not “comply with our standards” for sufficient human research.
But ketones can help support healthy weight management when combined with Svetol® green coffee been extract, the key ingredient in our Reserveage Nutrition supplement and the market’s only clinically researched green coffee been extract that is backed by human studies.
Supplementing with clinically researched green coffee bean extract can help you lose weight and reduce your overall body fat when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.
A clinical study published in 2006 showed that participants taking 200mg of Svetol twice a day before meals lost about twice as much weight as the placebo group over a 60-day trial period.
That’s why Reserveage™ chose to use Svetol® in our Advanced Solutions Green Coffee Bean Extract.
“A lot of weight loss supplements on the market contain large amounts of caffeine or other stimulants that can potentially give people unwanted jitters,” says Maru. “We chose Svetol® green coffee bean extract for our formula, in part, because it’s decaffeinated. Each serving contains about as much caffeine as a typical cup of decaf coffee.”
What about the coffee bean helps people lose weight if not the caffeine? “Researchers isolated a group of plant chemicals found in coffee beans called chlorogenic acids,” Maru explains. “Svetol® is formulated with a unique ratio of chlorogenic acids.”
Green Coffee Bean Extract works on three levels:
1) Its chlorogenic acids reduce absorption of carbohydrates in the intestine as well as 2) inhibit a liver enzyme that helps break down fat. 3) Green Coffee Bean Extract helps maintain already healthy blood sugar levels, triggering the body’s ability to burn fat as energy.
