Green Coffee Bean Extract: Benefits and Reviews

Thursday, October 18, 2012 by Health Tips

Green Coffee Bean Extract featuring SvetolWhen you hear “coffee” and “weight loss,” you might get the jitters. You may think that a coffee pill for weight loss would be nothing more than a caffeine pill. Well, you would be wrong.

What Is Svetol Green Coffee Bean Extract?

Green coffee bean extract, as seen on TV, is a unique nutrient derived from unroasted coffee beans that provides caffeine-free and stimulant-free weight loss support. AND it’s backed up by clinical studies that show with the proper dosage, green coffee bean can help promote healthy weight loss when combined with a sensible diet and exercie program.

But like other high-profile weight loss supplements, you must always look for quality and specifics when buying green coffee bean extract. Just as experts recommend garcinia cambogia with 60% HCA for weight loss, experts say SVETOL is the keyword to look for in green coffee bean supplements.


What Do the Customer Reviews Say About Svetol?

"Paid a lot of money for another brand w/higher milligram dosage per capsule, and no effect on appetite. Found the economical Svetol (Swanson's green coffee bean extract) and, not immediately but soon, experienced diminished appetite, less craving for sweets and carbs. Definitely worth a try for anyone who wants to reduce but struggles with cravings that override good intentions."
"I have been looking for something to perk me up for a long time. That was my main goal in trying this product. Within 20 minutes of taking the product I had a rise in my energy level and my appetite diminished. If I watch what I eat and remember to take the second dose, I will lose 1-2 pounds over the course of 1-2 weeks. That's enough for me. I want slow weight loss so that the weight stays off once it's gone."
"I ordered this after watching a Dr. Oz episode where they highlighted Svetol for weight loss. I didn't really research it, so I had no expectations. I was surprised to notice a drastic decrease in my appetite that lasted for hours. Even if that were the only benefit, it would be worth it, but I understand from what Dr. Oz said that it has other benefits that can enhance weight loss."

Daily Health Tips update for September 15:

It’s September. School is back in session, college football is on TV and that means dry skin season is rapidly approaching. How can you fight off the dry, itchy, flaky skin that cooler weather and indoor heaters perpetuate? It’s easy: use all natural solutions from fresh herbs and fruit! Nut oils, like almond or walnut, help moisturize skin and skincare products made from autumn fruits help exfoliate and energize skin. In fact, pulpy fruit like persimmons pamper sensitive facial skin for all skin types. Here’s how to make an easy, all-natural facial mask from The Herb Quarterly:

Herb & Persimmon Facial Mask

½ fresh, ripe persimmon including the peel

1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley leaves

2 teaspoons fresh chopped rose petals


To prepare: Mash the persimmon until smooth. Stir in parsley and rose petals.  For extra dry skin, add one teaspoon of almond oil.

To use: Spread mixture on face and neck. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes, then wash off with warm water.

Note: If you’re unable to find persimmons in your area, you can substitute figs.

Natural Teeth Brighteners

Daily Health Tips update for September 14:

Whiter teeth don’t have to come at the cost of an expensive trip to the dentist or with painful, harsh chemicals in do-it-yourself whitening kits. There are some natural precautions you can take to help your teeth stay white.

What passes through the lips can stain your teeth. Culprits include dark foods, sauces and drinks. Acidic foods and drinks can also increase staining because their erosive nature makes teeth more susceptible to stains. Even your mouthwash can cause problems. Mouthwashes that contain dyes and colors can slowly add to discoloration.

For a brighter smile, the next time you’re hungry avoid dark, acidic foods and look for crunchies to solve your munchies. These types of fibrous foods--like fruits and veggies--are not only healthy, but also great for teeth because their texture acts like a gentle scrub on teeth. If stains are already showing on your teeth, try tea tree oil. This natural stain remover can help teeth maintain their whiteness. It can be found in many natural teeth whitening products.
