Overview of Green Coffee Bean
Botanical Name: Coffea
The powder is mixed with drinks and consumed as a tablet.
- Side effects have not been studied, but they may be similar to coffee.
- Use caution or contact a licensed healthcare practitioner, if you are sensitive to caffeine products (for example, coffee), and know they may affect your health.
- There are cases that inhalation of powdered green coffee has caused hypersensitive allergic responses.
There is not enough research on the use of supplements containing green coffee bean during pregnancy and breast-feeding, so consult a licensed healthcare practitioner before use or avoid use.
Green coffee bean is not a "drug", so the best doses have not been thoroughly established. Make sure to follow the specific product instructions and take as directed on the label, or consult a licensed healthcare practitioner before use.
