Svetol Green Coffee Bean Extract
Svetol Green Coffee Bean Extract has received quite a bit of attention lately for its reported fat burning and weight loss properties. Green Coffee refers to raw, unroasted coffee beans. Normally, these beans are roasted, ground, and brewed and served up as steaming hot mugs of coffee. When left unroasted, however, Green Coffee shows some promising potential outside of the get-em-up caffeine buzz of a regular cup o joe.
Chlorogenic acid is the componant in Green Coffee Bean Extract that has been shown to inhibit an enzyme in the liver that promotes the formation of glucose in the liver.
"It [chlorogenic acid] may also be the source of coffee’s anti-obesity effects. Various studies have suggested that chlorogenic acid slows absorption of fat from food intake and also activates metabolism of extra fat. Unfortunately, traditional brewed coffee doesn’t serve as a good source of chlorogenic acid. While roasting green coffee beans removes its naturally bitter taste, it also removes a significant portion of chlorogenic acid. Hence, green coffee beans remain one of the best natural sources for chlorogenic acid." - Fact Sheet on Green Coffee Bean Extract, courtesy of Dr. Oz
Recently, Dr. Oz featured Green Coffee Bean Extract on his show, and conducted his own study on 100 participants with BMIs between 25 and 45 (considered overweight).
"The women were not pregnant or breastfeeding and didn’t have any major medical problems including diabetes, or history of heart attack or stroke. These women received either the green coffee bean extract or a placebo, and were instructed to take 400 mg capsules, three times a day – 30 minutes before each meal. No participant knew which pill they were given. Furthermore, the participants were instructed to not change their diet, and to keep a food journal that would help The Dr. Oz Show learn what these women were eating. After two weeks, the study participants were weighed.
In two weeks, the group of women who took the green coffee bean extract lost, on average, two pounds. However, the group of women who took the placebo lost an average of one pound – possibly because they were more aware of their diet for that two weeks because of the required food journal." - Courtesy ofThe Doctor Oz Show
Garden of Life includes 400 mg of Svetol brand Raw, naturally decaffeinated Green Coffee Bean Extract, standardized to 45% - 50% chlorogenic acid in each serving of RAW Fit Protein powder to help you reach and maintain your goal of a healthy body mass.

Raw Weight Loss and Stress Management Blend
In addition to Svetol Green Coffee Bean Extract, Garden of Life's RAW Fit Protein includes raw, organic ashwagandha to help promote a healthy response to stress. Why is this important to those trying to reach or maintain a healthy body weight? When we are experiencing stress, our bodies over-produce a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is responsible for a number of different functions in the body, including energy metabolism and blood pressure maintenance. Cortisol has been dubbed the "stress hormone" because stress causes our bodies to produce more cortisol than is needed for our basic functioning. Excess amounts of cortisol has been linked to weight gain, and the accumulation of fat in the abdominal region.
Ashwagandha is an herb that has been used for centuries in Indian Ayurvedic medicine practices as an "adaptogenic" herb. Adaptogenic herbs are thought to improve the body's ability to resist stressors, or to have a normalizing action. Adaptogens are used to help the body cope more effectively with stress.
The Ashwagandha in RAW Fit Protein is included to help you adapt to stress, stabilizing cortisol levels that can lead to weight gain, and the accumulation of belly fat.
Raw Organic Glucose Management Blend
To support blood sugar levels, RAW Fit Protein includes fruits, vegetables, and spices with blood sugar (glucose) stabilizing properties. Baobab fruit from South Africa is a rich source of fiber and polyphenols, and it has been studied for its ability to reduce the glycemic response to carbohydrate-rich foods both in vitro and in vivo.
Cinnamon is a spice commonly found in kitchens, but did you know that it has been studied for its effect on insulin action and subsequent blood sugar levels?
Daikon radish and alfalfa are herbs/ vegetables with a traditional use for supporting normalized blood sugar (glucose) levels, included in RAW Fit Protein.
