In another study with the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, the use of green coffee extract as a weight loss supplement was investigated.
The study noted: “The purpose of this paper is to assess the efficacy of green coffee extract (GCE) as a weight loss supplement, using data from human clinical trials.
“All studies were associated with a high risk of bias. The meta-analytic result reveals a significant difference in body weight compared with placebo.
“The magnitude of the effect is moderate, and there is significant heterogeneity amongst the studies.
“It is concluded that the results from these trials are promising, but the studies are all of poor methodological quality.”
