One of the most popular of the “Dr. Oz Miracle Supplements” may not be as good as we thought, at least according to the results of a new research study from Australia. All those supposedly healthy compounds found in unroasted coffee seeds — including chlorogenic acid, hydroxycinnamic acid, GCA, Svetol, antioxidants, etc. — didn’t help a group of mice avoid weight gain on a 3-month high-fat diet.
And here’s the even worse news: the mice fed a chlorogenic acid-based green coffee extract every day became much more insulin-resistant than the mice who didn’t get the diet supplement. High insulin-resistance is associated with type 2 diabetes, high blood sugar, metabolic syndrome, and other serious health problems. So that’s not good at all.
Obviously humans are quite a bit different than mice, so green coffee bean products may not have the same effects on us. But this study definitely does show that brand-new weight loss “wonder supplements” may have more risks — and far fewer benefits — than most people realize. It also shows that Dr. Oz needs to slow his roll a bit when it comes to hyping new supplements!
