1 Green coee bean extract

Green coffee beans are simply raw, unroasted coffee beans. Green coffee beans contain much higher levels of antioxidants than roasted beans, particularly when it comes to one called chlorogenic acid. The chlorogenic acid in green coffee bean extract slows the release of sugar into the blood after eating, which promotes fat burning in the body. There have been several small studies with green coffee bean extract. For example, researchers from the United Kingdom grouped together data from 142 people enrolled in prior studies and ran the data as a meta-analysis using this bigger group. After supplementing with green coffee bean extract at an average dosage of 180 to 200 milligrams (mg) per day for one to three months, each person was found to have lost an average of 5.4 pounds, even though there were no other diet or exercise changes. In other research, 33 volunteers drank 3 to 4 cups each day of a coffee brewed with green coffee beans (along with some roasted beans) for a month. On average, each person lost 1.4 pounds that month, without dieting or adding in exercise.

2 Saron extract

Saffron extract, which comes from the exotic yellow spice, offers a unique benefit to dieters: It squashes the urge to snack. Research showed that those taking 176 mg of saffron extract daily lost weight over a two-month period, primarily by snacking less than the placebo group.
