What’s Better For Weight Loss: Green Tea Or Green Coffee?

When it comes to cutting flab, there is no other combination better and workable than a regular, consistent workout and a healthy diet both with the right kind of lifestyle changes. Everything additional is a bonus. That being said, it become equally essential to go for the right kind of product that your want to supplement your efforts with.

Which brings us down to the two hot-favourites reining the weight-loss market at the moment: Green tea and green coffee extract? How do you know which one is better than the other? Read on to know your pick.

Tea time goodness

Originating from China, this powerful health drink has been followed for centuries and has been known for its potent health benefits, whether it is cardiovascular health or an impressive antioxidant level. The main component, Catechin- provides maximum antioxidant benefits and caffeine, which enhances thermogenesis and fat burning.

As per research, Green tea extract (GTE) has been known to increase the overall energy expenditure, increasing the number of calories burnt at rest as well as during exercise. Furthermore, long term use has also been recorded to show improved fat metabolism, with a weight loss of around 1-2 kgs over a few weeks time. While, of course, only GTE cannot be expected to do the work alone, when combined with the right diet and workouts, it supports greater weight loss and management.

The green bean

Green coffee extract (GCE) is extracted from unroasted, green coffee beans. With chlorogenic acids being the main active components, this green bean extract has been gaining reputation for its weight loss effects.

While its function is still under study and research, it is supposed that GCE works through fatty acid transport and fat oxidation (fat burn), thereby lowering the chance for new fat cell generation through its antioxidant effects.

While it does seem to have promising effect, there still needs to be enough evidence to support its functionality in total.

Green vs. Green

While both are better add-ons to your weight loss regime, going by the research reports and available evidence, most is in support of GTE, for its higher caffeine component. The reason being, caffeine supports your metabolism and helps you burn more fat. Moreover, there is far more extensive research data that supports GTE as compared GCE, thereby making it more convincing that GTE as a part of your diet may potentially be helpful to fat loss.

Points to watch out for

GTE and GCE are most effective when taken without milk, and especially when caffeine resistance is minimized. Meaning, if you are already addicted to coffee, chances are you are resistant to caffeine and may see little benefits of the extract.

Secondly, if you think you can get your daily dose of GTE by sipping on your green tea couple of times in a day, think again; An effective dose 400-600 mg) would require you to have 8-10 cups everyday. This is where the right kind of supplements comes in handy. Just make sure you’re getting 30-60 percent EGCG—the active ingredient in green tea responsible for its fat-burning effects—in each serving. Green coffee supplements are generally sold containing 40-50 percent chlorogenic acid by weight. In order to get the most effective dose of 120-300 milligrams of chlorogenic acid, you’ll want to look for a supplement containing 300-750 milligrams of green coffee extract.
