Several studies suggests green coffee extract could possibly be useful in reducing high blood pressure. According to WebMD, some research shows that people with mild high blood pressure who take a specific green coffee extract such as Svetol made by Naturex, (93 mg or 185 mg daily) have reduced blood pressure in less than a month.

The most recent study, published in February 2015 in the Journal of Human Hypertension analyzed the effect of chlorogenic acid on hypertension. The meta-study showed a reduction in blood pressure on subjects in several studies related to the intake of chlorogenic acid, which is the main active ingredient in the green coffee extract. This study does note that the effect is moderate and the research has been funded by the manufacturers of the product.

According to a 2012 study in the Journal of Nutrition, obese lab rats that consumed high levels of chlorogenic acid saw improvement in hypertension symptoms. Although these positive results have been mostly done on animals, a 2008 study published in the Journal of Nutrition suggested chlorogenic acid in green beans were also highly absorbed and metabolized by humans.

While experts continue to experiment and analyze the potential benefits of chlorogenic acid in green coffee bean extract for numerous health conditions, WebMD warns that taking high doses of chlorogenic acid could increase homocysteine, an amino acid associated with an increased risk of heart disease. It could possibly backfire on those people trying to improve their heart health. Always speak to a doctor before taking any supplements.
