The revolution of food tech



In 2050, the Earth should have 10 billion, 2.5 billion more than today. According to the United Nations, if we stay at equal mode of consumption, global food production must increase by 60% in the next thirty years to meet this high demand.

 Such a trajectory would have a devastating effect on the environment. The  Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) are already the second largest polluter with 24% of greenhouse gases, which comes behind the energy sector.

The explosion of the global population and climate change are pushing towards the development of new eating habits. Driven by the ecosystem of Silicon Valley, Americans are already experimenting plant burger, insects  as food and the 3D printed food.

Revolutionizing the way we feed ourselves for the welfare of all ... This utopia now seems within reach, thanks to new technologies that are reshaping all borders, including feeding habits.

The most exited people about these new food technologies are followers of innovative technologies, engineers or scientists, and foremost citizens motivated by a vital challenge:

but how to promote healthier food for people, sustainable for the planet, and sufficient for all ?

THE VEGETABLE BURGER

It looks like beef, it tastes like beef, like beef it bleeds ... but it's not beef. A pioneer in the meat substitute of invention, not Food was born in 2011 by the will of Patrick Brown, a renowned geneticist, professor of biochemistry at Stanford University and member of the American Academy of Sciences.

Vegetarian for forty years, he gave himself a mission: "We want a product burger that fans of burgers consider the best burger they ever ate" , he explains. The California company therefore target meat lovers . With a goal to make the change of food while satisfying their taste buds.Therefore, the challenge was to find the unique alchemy to restore the texture of beef: connective tissue, muscle, fat, only with the plant.

Wheat protein, potato and coconut oil are on the menu. But above all, not Food was the first to mix a substance called leghaemoglobin, a protein that has a very similar structure of red hemoglobin and provides rare appearance of Burger .

Since 2016, the aficionados of this vegetable steak can sit at table in trendy restaurants and even starred in San Francisco, Las Vegas and New York. The company, which raised $ 182 million since its inception in 2015 and refused a 300 million takeover offer from Google , continues its crazy bet. The problem of development is not demand, but to be able to respond. Hence the opening in March of a new plant in Oakland, with the goal of producing 4 million burgers per month by one year and to support and market its product in Bareburger chain .

INSECTS TO EAT IN PROTEIN BAR

Listening to a lecture by MIT Greg and Gabi Lewis Sewitz, an immediate passion for crickets, scorpions, beetle larvae, termites and other mealworms will overcome you . Inspired by this presentation describing the need to change the paradigm, both students at Brown University (Rhode Island), tired of not finding a protein bar that is healthy and delicious,

In January 2013 they ordered  2000 live crickets via the Internet. After being stored in the refrigerator, they converted it to powder and the protein bar of their dreams is born! Tested immediately on campus, and met a great success.



After that they tried to do some commercialization for their product in surrounding stores. after Graduation in May 2013, they left to New York, determined to give a promising alternative to conventional meat production. Their company Exo Raised $4M In First Ever Series A For An Insect Protein Startup in USA .

Compared to meat, producing insects is much more efficient and thus more environmentally friendly. It mobilizes less space, less water, can be performed on organic waste.

1 kg of locusts ready for use requires half of food intake than the equivalent in chicken, four times less than the pork and twelve times less than beef. In terms of nutritional intake, there is much protein and vitamins in the meal worms than in fish or meat, and as many as omega 3 in fish. And since they don`t need antibiotics or hormones, insects may ultimately prove healthier for the human body.


THREE MEALS-IN-ONE IN FIVE MINUTES

In 2013, Rob Rhinehart, active young 25, Electrical Engineer , who lived San Francisco, He was working hard to set up a startup about wireless networks . Entangled in his research, short of funds, it irritates him that he couldn't have time and money to lose in order to ... eat.

He decided a radical solution: he will find a way to ingest all the necessary nutrients for health, for a minimum cost and time.

He promised to make things simple saying :-
 "The body does not need food for itself, but mainly elements it contains. "
He then launched an experience that will be the guinea pig: by analysing all the essential components in food e.g. fat, carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals ... - and fed exclusively on them for thirty days.

 He transformed his laboratory to a kitchen, aggregated all the necessary ingredients, plus a few more to be beneficial. at the end the made a thick and beige liquid that has the taste and consistency of pancake batter but mixed with water.

He called it "Soylent" ,  the word is a combination of words soybeans and lentils.

Rob Rhinehart admitted :

"At that time, I did not know if it was going to kill me or give me superpowers. "


The result was a revelation:

 "It's like finding a new partner you really want. When all your needs are met, you do not have the desire to go elsewhere, "
enthuses Rob on his blog. Man medically verified the effects of Soylent on his body. Blood tests, cardiac test, glucose monitoring and even sequencing of its genome to be sure to validate the findings on a representative basis, so no particular anomaly.

According to Rob his fitness has improved, his teeth are whiter, his hair become thicker and his dandruff disappeared. and now his heart beats slower, his eczema, present since birth, vanished on the ninth day.
" I used to run less than a mile to the gym, now I have energy to spare. " said Rob
 He also believes his mental performance improved. Benefits that are a pure bonus. For the initial objective is reached. No need to shop, prepare meals, tidy the kitchen. Just five minutes Rob to concoct his three portions of the day.

 So much so that the inventor decided to stake everything on Soylent. There is no difficulty for investors and, a few months later, the first bottles are sold in all US. As of 2014, according to Bloomberg, 30,000 portions were shipped per month (procurement costs 65 dollars for a week, or $ 2.75 per share), including Canada. In 2016, the start-up announced a sales increase of 300%, the arrival on the European market and, according to the Financial Times , it is valued more than 100 million.

A 3D PRINTER IN THE KITCHEN

How to diversify the diet of astronauts by providing them with good nutritional quality, taking into account their specific needs and maintaining a fun dimension, all on a maximum of five years corresponding to distant space missions? This impossible equation, Anjan Contractor think I can solve it. A mechanical engineer, he convinced NASA in 2013 to entrust this project.

His company, Systems and Materials Research, receives a subsidy of 125,000 dollars to develop a solution. For Anjan Contractor has a conviction: the 3D printer, used previously for industrial purposes, may find application in the field of food. Nutritional ingredients in powder form are inserted into cartridges, such as those used for ink, and a controlled system is used to start printing, layer by layer, on a heater which cooks all.

 For his first test, the engineer chooses a favorite American dishes, which also has the merit of being simple to manufacture: the pizza. A first layer of paste thus edited and cooked simultaneously, and then is superimposed a layer of tomatoes mixed with water and oil and finally a protein layer which may come from various animal or vegetable sources.

Once the prototype built, NASA ended the experiment in 2015, and Anjan Contractor decides to continue the adventure by founding BeeHex Inc., dedicated to the manufacture of 3D printers. One of them exhibit coming one day in every kitchen, he imagines, allowing each feed individually while reducing drastically the environmental impact of food. For food powders used ingredients will have a lifespan much longer than fresh food, and so will eliminate food waste.

AN APP TO GET FOOD TO THE SCANNER

The CV of Isabel Hoffmann long as your arm. The lady already has a long career behind her and entrepreneur accumulates distinctions. In twenty-six, she founded eight companies in technological fields. Beginning in 2001, it focuses on predictive medicine and digital health. And that's as president and founder of TellSpec, founded in February 2013 in Toronto, she knows its heyday today.

TellSpec is the name of a small box that can analyze precisely all the components of food. By placing it on any meat, the scanner starts a molecular analysis. Data is sent via Bluetooth to the mobile phone. From there, a dedicated application transmits them to a huge database of all possible ingredients and their influences on health, positive or negative. Four seconds later, the application retrieves the results and reveals a diagram showing the number of calories, carbohydrate rate, protein, fat, fiber, sugars in foods. It also indicates the glycemic load. Even the presence of certain allergens such as gluten. Soon, soybeans, milk, peanuts are also detectable ... And why not tomorrow pesticides, GMOs ... even if it is not yet the order of the day. The possibilities seem endless TellSpec. And, already, by paying $ 499 more than the price of a monthly subscription, consumers can now track these indicators aggregated per meal, per day, per week. Warning, there are six-month wait before delivery!

"This is the experience of my daughter, who gave me the idea of TellSpec" says Isabel Hoffmann. In 2011, a child of thirteen falls very ill. It will take eight months for that to be detected in the young girl, powerful food allergies and a breeding ground for diabetes. With his partner, co-founded the mathematician Stephen Watson, Isabel Hoffmann, leaving technology spectrometers deployed by Texas Instruments, while developing an algorithm that detects chemical compositions. What to eat everywhere safely. The founder already anticipating the next step: personalized medicine. TellSpec therefore plans to expand its spectrum of blood and urine tests."We can then build from genomes and microbiomes and correlate food with diagnostics and therapy of each person" , she prophesies.

Well beyond the production of the small box, and TellSpec working on the creation of a huge database of all the ingredients that can be ingested and clearly displays its mission: "Helping to create a revolution of healthy food by ensuring food security for all. " The aim is therefore also to work pedagogy, familiarize consumers with food components, including more unknown such as calcium erythorbate, the anoxomère or ascorbyl stearate. And they reveal the implications on health, to encourage them to focus on the beneficial ingredients.

AGRICULTURE FERTILIZED WITH BIG DATA

In the United States, where farms  are on average  177 hectares (55 in France), farmers quickly seized the interest of big data. Joe Nichols started his Kentucky farm in 1995 with one goal: 'Build a project that could one day be considered one of the best managed farms. '

Today he runs the Seven Springs Farms, which brings together 136 independent farmers. Producers of corn, wheat and soy, Joe Nichols and his partners, through a multitude of connected objects, have moved into the era of predictive farming: lower costs and higher yields go hand in hand with more sustainable farming of the earth. Sensors located in the fields thus analyze the intrinsic soil moisture to determine the most appropriate plantations. Watering is limited to areas in need. Same with fertilizers and pesticides. Drones scan the fields to determine the rate of planting and spreading. Best of all, John Deere's fully-connected connected tractors - designed in collaboration with NASA - let you schedule them according to the weather.

Scientists told how to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease



Two handfuls of nuts a week can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by almost a quarter, writes the Daily Mail referring to scientists from Harvard University.

Research conducted this study among 200 thousand people, showed that all types of nuts can help prevent the most frequent cause of death.

People who ate almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, pistachios or pecans in food two or more times a week were 23 percent and 15 percent, respectively, less prone to cardiovascular diseases.

eatingthe same amount of peanuts, which is actually not a nut, reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by 15 percent and 13 percent, respectively.

A handful of walnuts or more per week reduced the risk of disease for 21 and 19 per cent respectively.

Nuts have been found  to have useful properties because they contain antioxidants, proteins, nutrients, minerals and dietary fiber .This rich content of nutrients can help to cardiovascular diseases and other diseases, including cancer, diabetes, respiratory diseases and dementia.

"Our study confirmed the recommendation to include in the diet of various types of nuts, to reduce the risk of chronic diseases," - said the study's lead author, nutritionist March Guasch Ferret.

9 tips to protect your eyes if you stare at screens all day

9 tips to protect your eyes if you stare at screens all day


Sitting long hours in front of screens is a part of my daily experience  , if you sit for hours in front of your computer or mobile you will face many problems especially your eyes, so I am conveying these tips from my humble experience as well as some scientific sources of course and I hope to be useful tips.

At First, sitting in front of a computer screen for more than an hour was causing severe stress and red to my eyes that I couldn't finish what I started, which usually takes several hours and then I learned several things about dealing with a computer screen to make a big shift and a large increase in The hours I can sit in front of a computer screen, which connects directly to my work for long, indefinite periods.

Studies indicate that stress and other disturbing visual symptoms occur in 50-90 % of those who work in computer-related jobs. These problems can range from physical exhaustion, low productivity and an increase in the number of work errors, to harassment such as tremors and continued. The following are 10 easy steps that you can do to reduce the risk of stress and other common symptoms of computer vision computer vision.

1-configure your screen Brightness and contrast

Make screen brightness as low as possible

This advice is the most important that can be given to you in this field,

 what is the most annoying thing that bothers you when you look at screens?
It's the bright light, of course, Books don't hurt our eyes as much as screens,this is because we're looking at the source of light directly and it's exhausting, it's the same effect we feel when we look at the sun or even a lamp .

After reducing brightness at first you feel the screen is dark, it will bother you, but after a while you will get used to it, and the number of hours you can spend in front of the computer without your eyes affected, I promise,  will increase . the only flaw is that people around you will start to wonder how could you see details in a dark sreen like this , tell them that you are a super hero :) .

2-configure screen color temperature

Adjust screen color temperature. It's a technical term used to describe the color of visible light . The Blue Light is the highest energy in visible light spectrum, which means more eye strain compared to less energy, such as yellow, orange and red. the reddish the temperature of your screen, the lower the amount of blue light emitted from it .

There's something else about the blue light, a research has talked about its bad effect on getting into sleep,so looking at a screen that emits blue light for long time at night is bad for your sleeping habits.

You can adjust the color temperature to get rid of the blue through your computer screen settings or using an app like f. Lux is a smart application that controls the color of the color and the timing in your country.

3-Make light above you and not in front of you

There is no point in making the lights fall on your eyes at all, if the source of the light is in front of you, it will overwhelm your eyes even if you don't look at it directly, and if it's behind you, use the roof lamps or side lamps to get light without direct reflections on your eye lens.

4-don't make the lighting around you too bright

If the lighting in the place is so bright, you will get an eye strain because of the reflection on the rooftops and the walls around you , the medium-intensity lighting and avoiding direct sunlight reflections by using curtains or any other mean is the best option.

5-Never work in the darkness... Never!

In order not to hurt your eyes, the margin between the lighting of the screen and the ambient light should not be wide , don't make computer screen or the phone screen your only source or the strongest source of light, your eyes won`t even last few minutes before getting red and hot .

6- use bigger icons and fonts

If you're using windows , you can adjust the size of the text and the color by going to a list, opening the control panel and selecting the offer. Here you can also set the accuracy of the screen brightness on the best visual comfort.

You can adjust the size of the text when using internet, Firefox, and other browsers, too. For example, in Firefox, you can enlarge the whole web page using the keyboard command on ctrl + several times as you want, while ctrl+ 0 makes everything normal size again. (- makes everything smaller. ).

Many Smartphones allow you to adjust the size of the text. For example, on Iphone, you can simply open the menu settings, then choose a year, then reach, and then a big text. Here you can choose a new font size for basic applications such as mail, feedback and calendar.

7- examine your eye 


An Eye scan is the most important thing you can do to prevent or treat problems in the vision because. According to the National Institute for occupational safety and health (Niosh), computer users should do an eye exam before starting a permanent work on the computer and then once a year thereafter.

During the examination, make sure to tell the eye doctor how many times a computer is used at work and home. Measure the distance between your eyes from the screen when you sit on your computer and tell your doctor

8- Use 20-20-20 exercise

 Blink many times to hydrates your eyes  , When working on a computer, the blinking rate is much lower - about a third often as they usually do - and many blinking during computer work are only partial closure, according to studies.

Tears evaporate faster when your blinking rate is lower and this can cause the dry eye. The air in many dry office environments can increase the speed of your tears, where it becomes an eye for the line.

If you suffer from the symptoms of dry eye . ask your ophthalmologist about using artificial tears for use during the day.

To Reduce the risk of dehydration while using the computer, try doing this exercise: Every 20 minutes, blink 10 times by closing your eyes as if you're preparing to sleep (very slowly). This will help the your eyes.

One of the reasons for eye strain is to focus on the screen for a long time and to treat this case there's an eye workout.

After every 20 minutes you spend in front of your computer screen,  Stare at something about 20 feets away for 20 seconds. This exercise helps to relax eye muscles and reduce the fatigue and stress of the eye .

9-take many breaks

 Doctors say that taking breaks from time to time has a positive effect on productivity , on long-term working without breaks causes eye fatigue and loss of focus, which will affect productivity negatively as well .

Can we grow plants under synthetic light ?



The challenges facing agriculture are one of the greatest challenges faced by humans today,

many factors that have led to the reduction of agricultural areas such as desertification, urbanization, water scarcity and climate change made the green lands shrink .

All of these factors have led to new creation of alternatives to traditional agriculture, and many projects and initiatives have already begun to grow on rooftops, terraces and even vertical agriculture in skyscrapers .

The biggest challenge for these types of agriculture is to provide sufficient sunny areas to feed and grow plants, prompting researchers to look for alternatives to sunlight to help the plant to process photosynthesis and produce food.

Here is a set of answers to the most important questions about agriculture under artificial light

Can plants grow and grow on light bulbs?

Fortunately yes! But the plant has a requirement like certain wavelengths, luckily most of them fall within the scope of the normal visible spectrum of light and can be covered with ordinary lamps, but the best is to use are  LED lamps made for the growth of plants where produce the most used waves by plants, so you may want to consider buying These bulbs instead of buying general use lamps.

Halogen lamps can also provide full-spectrum light, but being incandescent bulbs produces a lot of heat so they must be placed at sufficient distance from the plants so as not to burn the leaves. Fluorescent lamps are also suitable as well as the most energy-efficient LED bulbs.

Do plants grow better under sunlight or artificial light?

Plants generally grow better under sunlight. This is because sunlight contains more energy and a more balanced distribution of artificial light. In particular, the sun emits the largest possible slice of light that contains more coverage in red and blue areas, while artificial light typically lacks these areas.

What is the best color for light to grow plants?


  • Plants absorb light in very specific waves to obtain energy. In particular, the chlorophyll absorbs blue and red light while reflecting the green light. In fact this is why plants look green to us.
  • The highest absorption of light occurs within the range of red and blue light


In general, the plant needs:

  1. Blue wavelength light for leaf growth.
  2. Red light wavelength of flowers and fruits


For ideal wavelengths are: -
Red (610-700 nm) and blue (450-500 nm) These wavelengths are most effective in enhancing photosynthesis
Green (500-570 nm) light is the least effective - it is not absorbed by plants but is reflected as we mentioned before

Do plants absorb ultraviolet radiation?

Yes, plants absorb ultraviolet radiation, but in small quantities . Luckily, plants do not need too much ultraviolet radiation, and much UV radiation can damage the plant .

How intense is the light that plants need to grow?

Minimum illumination required about 2000 lumens per square foot. Mid range is about 5000 lumens per square foot. The optimum intensity is 7000-7500, or higher, per square foot candle. Assuming we maintain a distance of 3-5 inches from the surface of the plant.

Note: The intensity of the light is usually written on lamps from the outside in the name of luminous (luminous) while the watt reflects the electric power and consumption

Hpow much time we should keep the artificial lighting over the plant?


Ideal duration of 12 to 16 hours per day of course may increase or decrease slightly with no negative impact on the plant

Is Chewing Gum good or bad for you ?



Is Chewing Gum Bad? There are tens of gums on store shelves today, these gums contains a set of new ingredients, more daring, attractive, long-lasting flavors and also a whole range of new health hazards.

Some of these gums have very large audience, that includes adults, teenagers, young people, and everyone even if they chew it for different reasons,

some people prefer gum for a fresh taste or to fight bad breath or for other psychological reasons such as killing boredom and fighting tension.

Despite these benefits, there are some damages, Chewing Gum is not good for containing many substances on top of them titanium dioxide.

Food is medicine and all diseases begin in the intestines . titanium dioxide has been used for years. Titanium dioxide has micro-particles, these tiny metal particles can cause many serious health threats.

Titanium dioxide has been classified for years as safe by the food and medicine department,

 This compound is widely used to create bright white paint in paints and plastic... and gum and many Other food, like candy and White Sugar Powder (for cakes)! And even the bread. Although it is allowed to be found on store shelves and considered safe, scientists have another view.

In fact, a study published in 2017 in magazine showed that titanium compounds such as titanium dioxide could severely affect the health of the intestine. Researchers show small intestine cells for a more than four hours (acute exposure) or three meals over five days (chronic exposure). Researchers discovered shocking results.

According to the study, the chronic exposure of titanium dioxide molecules in the diet led to:
  • Weakening of the intestinal barrier
  • Slowing down metabolism
  • Triggering inflammation
  • Weakening the gut’s defense against pathogens
  • Blocking nutrient absorption of key nutrients like iron, zinc and fatty acids

  • It is not only gum that contains titanium oxide, the same article exists in tooth paste and also used in chocolate to make its feel softer and to make milk cream more glamorous.

    ' to avoid the rich foods of titanium oxide molecules must avoid manufactured foods, especially candy. This is where we see a lot of particles.

    Emulsion used in gum destroys the intestinal balance. Many of the products of gum contain emulsions to retain flavor and keep gum from sticking to teeth. The problem is that many emulsion work almost like cleaners in the digestive system, it sweeps friendly bacteria and this destroy the natural balance of friendly bacteria in your gut. Research on experimental animals suggests that some of the emulsion used in food can contribute to the development of colon cancer.

    Chewing Gum and migraines
    For children and adolescents who suffer with excessive migraines and stress headaches ther is a natural solution under their noses: stop chewing gum. A small study revealed that stopping of chewing gum leads to significant improvements in 26 out of 30 teenagers in school.

     Surprisingly, 19 of them have stopped their headaches at all without having any treatments - just stopped chewing gum!.

    If you're trying to get rid of migraines naturally, usually stop chewing gum is a great idea to start. In teenage girls and adolescents,may suffer headaches because of : Stress, lack of sleep, hot weather, video games, noise, sunshine, smoking, skipping meals and period.

    Now we can add gum to the list. Researchers are not sure about the link between gum and headaches, but the good news is that we can stop a lot of headaches with this simple step.

    Fighting bad breath is a good excuse for chewing gum, but side effects are bad news, especially for your gut. Fortunately, there are better ways to deal with bad breath . After excluding the possible core issues of bad breath, you can resort to these things to improve your normal breath:


    • Chewing parsley.
    • Drinking enough water.
    • Learn how to safely use the benefits of mint oil. (not recommended for small children).
    • Coconut Oil can be used as gargle and mouth wash to get rid of causes of bad breath.

    Benefits of green coffee for weight loss



    Perhaps you've heard about the controversial controversy around the benefits of drinking coffee. There is also a debate about the use of green coffee beans or green coffee extracts that are known to be used to contribute to losing weight after having featured in Dr. Oz's most popular health show in the world.

    Green coffee beans are the coffee beans that have not been toasted, the beans are naturally green, but they are usually roasted before being sold to the consumer. This is the process that turns it into the brown color that is famous for coffee.

    Coffee beans contain a package of antioxidants and effective ingredients . Two of them is caffeine and chlorogenic acid . Chlorogenic acid is believed to be the compound that contributes to weight loss.

    Roasting coffee reduces the content of chlorogenic acid. That's why drinking toasted coffee may not have the same effect on weight loss according to these claims .

    Summary: Green coffee beans are the same as regular coffee beans, but they are not roasted yet. It is high in a substance called the acid that is believed to contribute to loss of weight.

    Does green coffee contribute weight loss?

    Losing weight can be difficult and stressful for a lot of people. That's why people turn into all kinds of supplements to make things easier. Green coffee or green coffee beans extract is one of those supplements.... and is currently one of the most popular supplements in the world.

    Green Coffee Bean Extract contains some caffeine. Many studies have shown that caffeine can enhance the process of food representation by up to 3-11 % and, however, it is believed that the main active ingredient is the chlorogenic acid.

    Some human studies indicate that it can reduce carbohydrates from the digestive tract, reducing blood sugar and then insulin doses.

    If that's true, then taking the green coffee bean will be like eating a low-Carb Diet.

    Other Studies (mice and rats) have shown that the acid can reduce the weight of the body, reduce the fat of the diet, as well as reduce the fat in the liver and improve the function of it.

    It has also been found that chlorogenic acid in green coffee has significantly improved levels of cholesterol and here in mice. These are the important risk factors for heart disease.

    It turns out that green coffee prevents overweight in animal studies. This may be due to low carb absorption from the diet, or through some other mechanisms.

    There are not many studies on chlorogenic acid and its effectiveness as a result of loss of weight. Some studies on humans have shown that green coffee beans may have the ability to help lose weight. However, the documented effects of loss of weight were small and studies were not long-term and poorly designed or by companies that promoted green coffee products.

    Therefore, there is not enough evidence to say that green coffee is certainly effective and there is a need for further research.

    In Summary, many experiments in humans show that the extraction of green coffee can result in weight loss. However, these studies were relatively small and some were sponsored by companies promoting green coffee products.
    Long-term weight loss is about adopting a healthy lifestyle and continuing it. It may help green coffee beans, but many experts agree that there is no alternative to maintaining a healthy diet and getting regular exercise.

    Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend reducing daily calories from 500 to 1000 calories and obtaining 60 to 90 minutes of moderate physical activity most days of the week.

    Green Coffee side effects

    According to the limited evidence available, it appears that the extracts of green coffee beans have a very good safety file.

    The possible negative side effects of green coffee are the same ones that are in regular coffee, the high content of caffeine.

    The common side effects of would are:
    • Stomach disorder 
    • Increase heart rate 
    • Frequent Urination 
    • Insomnia 
    • Anxiety. 
    • Dose and use 
    Green Coffee is sold online and in many coffee shops, there are also some suppliments that contain green coffee .

    the proper dose is ranging from 60 to 185 milligrams per day of Green Coffee Extract.

    If you're sensitive to caffeine, then you should be careful with green coffee extraction suppliments . The chlorogenic acid may also have a laxative effect and cause diarrhea.

    Some people are allergic to green coffee beans. If you're allergic to coffee, you need to avoid it. It did not show whether the green coffee was safe for pregnant or lactating women and should not be consumed by children.

    There is currently no study to determine the optimal dose of green coffee beans. However, the some studies use doses ranging from 120-300 mg of acid acid. This could be equivalent to a dose of 240-3000 mg of green coffee drink daily.


    It's recommended to drink green coffee 30 minutes before each meal.
