Green coffee bean extract (GCBE) supplements may help you lose weight. But ConsumerLab.com found that 50% of the supplements it recently selected for testing didn't contain expected amounts of key chlorogenic acids -- compounds associated with the extract's weight loss effects. Out of the eight green coffee bean extract supplements selected, one contained NO extract and three others contained no more than 14%, 64%, and 82% of expected amounts, based on chemical analyses repeated in two independent laboratories.
Fortunately, several high-quality products were found, including some identified through ConsumerLab.com's Quality Certification Program. Among the CL Approved products, the cost to get a 400 mg dose of extract ranged by over 300%, but one cost as little as 20 cents per dose.
