I love drinking coffee. In fact, I probably drink way too much of it throughout the day. I don’t add any sugar or cream so it’s not as bad as it could be. However, in this post today, I’m not referring to the Starbucks coffee you like to drink. I’m talking about green coffee!
If you’re not familiar with what this is, green coffee comes from where you think it comes from. It’s natural, unroasted, 100% raw green coffee beans and what most people have yet to discover is that crazy amount of antioxidants that exist in this ingredient. In fact, it might very well be the most powerful antioxidant (natural, of course) in the world.
Why Are Green Coffee Beans Becoming So Popular?
Well, to be completely honest with you, I wasn’t all that familiar with this ingredient until I did my own research. While I suggest that you do your own research before incorporating this into your skin care routine, I will give you some insight as to why it might be trending and gaining popularity. I’ll give you a hint. It all has to do with fighting off free radicals!
According to the owner of Jersey Shore Cosmetics, Jacquelyn Foster Quattro, stated that these beans, “contain a higher amount of chlorogenic acid, which is packed with powerful antioxidants…” One thing that we and many of our readers at Skincare.net understand that antioxidants help fight free radicals. It’s important to battle these free radicals because one of the reasons why our skin becomes damaged is due to the presence of them.
An added benefit of the ingredient is the caffeine (which this product has) it contains. Most of us drink coffee to wake up and be more alert. Well, caffeine has a similar effect on your skin. It helps tighten your skin and make you look younger.
Actually, green coffee isn’t all that new really. It’s been around for years and has been used in many health and diet products. The natural fat burning power this ingredient has is pretty powerful based on the opinions of a few friends.
That said, as an added bonus, you might burn a few more calories too (don’t quote me on that because I’ve never used it). Either way, it sounds like it could be a useful ingredient that we may see more of in the near future! Keep an eye on it and let me know how things go for you if you decide to try it out!
