What is raw green coffee
Il coffee raw green it is coffee that has not been roasted. It is very different from what we are used to consuming not only in appearance and flavor but also in nutritional properties. Coffee, however, whether it be raw-green or roasted-black, contains caffeine.
La caffeine is a methylxanthine. Methylxanthines are natural molecules with lipolytic action; they can therefore help you lose weight. Raw green coffee contains less caffeine than roasted coffee, but the caffeine contained in raw green coffee is absorbed and therefore eliminated more slowly, thanks to the presence and action of another substance, thechlorogenic acid. In practice, about half an hour after drinking a cup of roasted coffee, there is a peak of caffeine in the blood; this substance is then eliminated and, within a few hours, there is no more in the blood. With raw green coffee, on the other hand, there is no such peak; absorption is slow and continuous; consequently the caffeine remains in the body for several hours, exerting its action for a longer time. In practice, there is the same difference between roasted coffee and raw green coffee as there is between a drug with a short half-life and one with a long half-life. The half-life of raw green coffee allows an effective action, with fewer side effects than roasted coffee; that is, less tachycardia, less insomnia, less diarrhea.
