Green Coffee Pills Side Effects: What Are the Side Effects of the Caffeine Content?

By    |   Monday, 16 March 2015 02:43 PM

Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not been roasted and they are very high in a substance called chlorogenic acid. This acid, in combination with caffeine, is thought to be responsible for a boost in metabolism and other benefits that some consumers have experienced after taking the supplement.

Green coffee bean extract has been touted by manufacturers as a "miracle" diet pill that can boost metabolism, balance blood sugar levels, reduce sugar cravings and cause significant weight loss. These marketing claims have been challenged by the Federal Trade Commission but the supplement remains popular with consumers.

Green coffee pills do contain a significant amount of caffeine and the amount can vary between manufacturers. In addition, the amount of caffeine per tablet or capsule may not be indicated on the label. For example, "Green Coffee Bean Extract (Coffea Robusta Bean) standardized to 50 percent chlorogenic acid 200 MG" does not provide caffeine content information.

According to Caffeine Informer, one popular brand of green coffee extract contains 50 mg of caffeine per capsule and the recommended dosage is two capsules before every meal for an average dose, three for a moderate dose and four capsules for an accelerated dose. Other brands contains between 20 and 40 mg of caffeine.

In comparison, Medline Plus reports that a cup of black coffee contains 100 mg of caffeine while tea can have anywhere from 14 to 60 mg, chocolate has 45 mg in a 1.5 ounce bar and most colas have 45 mg per 12 ounces.

Medline Plus reports the side effects from excessive caffeine consumption can include:

• An accelerated heartrate
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Difficulty sleeping
• Nausea
• Restlessness
• Tremors
• Urinating more often
• Vomiting.

In addition, after the body has become accustomed to caffeine, stopping consumption can cause "drowsiness, headaches, irritability, nausea and vomiting."

Some evidence indicates that caffeine may reduce the absorption of calcium and lead to osteoporosis. "Caffeine from green coffee and other sources can increase the amount of calcium that is flushed out in the urine. This might weaken bones. If you have osteoporosis, limit caffeine consumption to less than 300 mg per day (approximately 2-3 cups of regular coffee)," reports WebMD.
