Why Do Dieters Use It?*
Some dieters say that green coffee extract helps weight loss and body fat loss.
What Do the Advocates Say?*
Some limited human studies show that green coffee extract improves weight loss results and reduces body fat during short-term dieting of up to 12 weeks. Whether green coffee extract helps long-term weight control results is unknown. Also, at least one human study supporting green coffee extract's effect on weight loss has been retracted due to methodological problems, raising suspicion about research relating to green coffee extract and weight loss.
