Green coffee bean extract has been shown to have anti-diabetic benefits. Studies have shown that consumption of 3 to 4 cups of decaffeinated coffee containing high contents of CGA significantly reduced the risk for T2DM by 30%. Chlorogenic acid (CGA) is considered an insulin sensitizer that potentiates insulin's action similar to the therapeutic action of the diabetic drug Metformin . Clinical trials have also showed that CGA is able to lower the glycemic impact of foods and chronically lower blood glucose levels of Type 2 Diabetics. A 12 week human study showed that CGA led to a 3 times great weight loss than the control group. In animal models, CGA has been shown to suppress body weight gain and visceral fat accumulation.
