Green Coffee Pills Side Effects: Are There Dangerous Side Effects Associated With Taking GCE?

By    |   Monday, 16 March 2015 02:33 PM

The efficacy of green coffee bean pills to increase metabolism and cause weight loss has been challenged by the Federal Trade Commission. However, there are consumer testimonials that claim the natural health supplement met expectations and green coffee bean extract remains popular among dieters seeking weight loss support from a supplement.

According to WebMD, "Green coffee is possibly safe based on the limited research that has been done in people so far. In clinical research, no serious side effects were reported when green coffee or green coffee extract was taken by mouth at appropriate doses." However, WebMD issues special precautions for pregnancy and breast-feeding, as there is not enough situational evidence to identify potentially dangerous side effects from the supplement.

A study reported in American Chemistry for Life claimed that laboratory mice that ingested green coffee bean supplements (which contain chlorogenic acid or CGA) did not manifest any weight-loss benefits. However, when it came to side effects, researchers also stated, "The CGA mice, however, were more likely to develop disorders that often lead to type 2 diabetes. They also accumulated fat inside the cells in their livers."

Health Food Post makes the point that not all green coffee bean supplements are equal when it comes to quality ingredients and manufacturing. "For instance, many products advertised as pure green coffee products often have other ingredients. Some have fillers and additives. Some are spiked with added caffeine. So, even though the current limited research may suggest no known side effects it is important for consumers to carefully read the ingredients label on any product being considered, since ingredients other than chlorogenic acid could be a potential source of negative side effects."

According to weight loss coach Cynthia Sass from Shape Magazine, the caffeine in green coffee bean extract can have potentially dangerous side effects. "Concentrated doses of caffeine can cause headaches, GI upset, nervousness, insomnia, anxiety, ringing in the ears, and irregular heartbeat, or even more serious problems in some people. In addition, using caffeine-based weight-loss supplements and then stopping them has also been associated with withdrawal symptoms including headache, fatigue, depression, trouble concentrating, nervousness, muscle tension, and a flushed face."
