What took LifeSource Vitamins so long to make Green Coffee Bean Extract? That is easy, RESEARCH. What we found out was exactly why we took our time. There is a difference in absorption with Green Coffee Bean just like any other nutrient. After all of our research, we found that Svetol was our unanimous choice and it is backed by science!
100% Pure Green Coffee Bean Extract with Svetol®
Why is Svetol so important and why do most Green Coffee Bean Extracts on the market not have Svetol in them? Cost, simply put. Svetol® is the only plant extract of decaffeinated green coffee that helps you simultaneously lose weight and improve your body’s form. The slimming action of Svetol® refines your form. Scientifically proven, Svetol® is today’s exclusive solution for weight loss.
The bio-availability of the active components of Svetol®
In order to affect the organism, the Chlorogenic acids have to be bio-available. In other words, they must be absorbed without being degraded in the digestive tract. For this reason, Naturex was required to study the bio-availability of Chlorogenic acids, found in Svetol®. These works carried out in association with the INRA (French National Agricultural Organisation) of Clermont-Ferrand and published in May 2006, demonstrated for the first time the entire metabolism of Chlorogenic acids of Svetol®. The results provide support of the bio-availability of certain Chlorogenic acids.*
The effectiveness of Svetol®
Other works of Naturex, notably carried out with foreign partners, have shown that Svetol® is capable of noticeably reducing the level of sugar present in the blood after a meal. Additionally, a clinical study carried out on 50 people aged between 19 and 75 years demonstrated the Slimming Action of Svetol® with regard to the recorded weight loss of those individuals who were supplemented with Svetol®, as compared to individuals who received the placebo.*
Furthermore, it was observed that Svetol® is capable of significantly reducing the BMI and that it favors the breakdown of the reserves of lipids (fats).* This is why you will see a wide swing in pricing on this product in particular. It is expensive to use Svetol and the results can only come with using ingredients that actually work.*
There have been several studies recently that show Green Coffee Extract aids weight loss, but perhaps the most convincing is the one revealed that: There are antioxidants in green coffee bean extract that can help melt your fat away"

Green coffee beans may lead to weight loss, study shows.
(CBS News) - Could the secret to weight loss be found in coffee? According to a new study, people who took a daily dose of green coffee - which is unroasted coffee beans - lost about 10 percent of their body weight.
The study, which gave participants a supplement containing green coffee extract, was presented at the American Chemical Society (ACS) in San Diego and published earlier this year in Diabetes Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity.
The new study involved 16 overweight people (with Body Mass Indexes between 25 to 30) between the ages of 22 to 46 years old. They were monitored for 22 weeks, in which they were given a low dose of 700 mg green coffee extract tablet, a high dose of 1,050 mg extract tablet and a placebo. Because they were given all the different doses and the inactive placebo, the participants acted as their own control group.
Participants were told to take three green coffee capsules each day, 30 minutes before each meal with lots of water, due to the pill's bitterness. Roasting coffee makes beans less bitter, according to the researchers. The pill contained caffeine, but it amounted to about half a cup of coffee a day.
All the participants were monitored for their overall diet and exercise. Throughout the study, participants ate on average 2,400 calories a day and had a calorie expenditure of 400 calories, nowhere near the levels required for weight loss.
What effects did green coffee have?
After the study, participants lost an average of 17 pounds, which broke down to a 10.5 percent decrease in overall body weight and a 16 percent decrease in body fat. Lead researcher Dr. Joe Vinson, a professor of chemistry at the University of Scranton in Pa., said in an emailed press release that the weight loss may have been more, but since the subjects received a lower dose and placebo at some point in the study it may have lessened the overall effect. The study was funded by Applied Food Sciences, which makes green coffee supplements.
Vinson told HealthPop that the most exciting fact about this study was that the green coffee extract GCA did not have any side effects. Unlike other weight loss pills that have been pulled off the market by the FDA over health concerns or cause unpleasurable side effects like gastrointestinal problems, green coffee had no related problems, he said. "I've been taking some myself to see if caused any problems," Vinson told HealthPop. "It's okay."
The study also reported a two beats-per-minute reduction in heart rate among participants. Vinson told HealthPop while he doesn't recommend people who have high blood pressure forgo prescribed medicine for green coffee, it may help.
Previous studies have also shown green coffee bean extracts effect on weight loss. A 2006 Italian study in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine using mice showed the green coffee bean extract may work against weight gain and fat accumulation by stopping fat absorption and activating of fat metabolism in the liver.
What explains the mysterious effect? Vinson believes that a substance called chlorogenic acid that goes away when coffee beans are roasted may be the reason for the weight loss. Unfortunately, that means your daily cup of coffee won't give you the same effect.
Dr. Lona Sandon, assistant professor of clinical nutrition at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas cautioned to HealthDay that people should not draw conclusions from the research.
"First of all, you need more than 16 people to have any statistical significance attached to these findings and we really have no idea how this might be working," Sandon said.
She also warned about the dangers of supplements in general, which are not regulated the same way as drugs when it comes to safety testing.
Said Sandon, "While people might have this perception that it's all natural since it's coming from a coffee bean, with supplements, in general, it's still a buyer-beware market."

Coffee Bean Extract Linked to Weight Loss. ABC News
Alethea Turner, D.O., reports:
Unlike magic beans that make you grow, green coffee beans may make you lose weight — and fast.
A new study suggests taking green coffee bean extract, which is sold as a supplement in the United States, could be a safe and effective way to drop some pounds.
“Based on our results, taking multiple capsules of green coffee extract a day — while eating a low fat, healthful diet and exercising regularly — appears to be a safe, effective, inexpensive way to lose weight,” study author Joe Vinson, a chemist at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, said in a statement.
Researchers gave up to 1,050 milligrams of green coffee bean extract to 16 overweight adults in their 20s and monitored their diet, exercise regimen, weight, heart rate and blood pressure for 22 weeks. Without changing their diet or exercise, study subjects lost roughly 10.5 percent — an average of 17 pounds – in overall body weight. No harmful side effects were noted, according to the study presented today at the American Chemical Society national meeting in San Diego.
How green coffee bean extract contributes to weight loss is unclear. But Vinson theorizes a chemical in the unroasted bean called chlorogenic acid could be responsible. Other experts suspect the stimulant properties of caffeine could be the culprit.
“I’d be happier if the research included pure caffeine, in the same amount as is contained in the two doses of [green coffee bean extract],” said Keith Ayoob, a registered dietitian and associate professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. “Then you’d know if the effects are due solely to caffeine or to something else in the beans, or to some combination thereof.”
Although green coffee bean extract may be of some benefit for people seeking weight loss, experts say the small study should be interpreted with caution.
“It’s premature to recommend this approach,” said Dr. David Katz, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center. “The effects, if real, are likely to be modest and we don’t know if they last over time.”
“It’s a supplement, not a substitute,” Katz added. “The emphasis will always need to be on overall diet and physical activity.”
Dr. Turner is a family medicine resident at Scottsdale Health Care in Arizona.
