Leisure 18 Brazilian Slimming Coffees

Typically, most slimming coffees are clinically proven to suppress the appetite. But depending on the brand, slimming coffees may also help in lowering cholesterol levels, speed up the metabolism and burn extra calories.

For example, a certain brand of Brazilian slimming coffee called Leisure 18 is said to contain all-natural substances like Brazilian black coffee and extracts from a fruit called Garcinia cambogia that is present in many anti-obesity products. The extract called HCA or hydroxycitric acid is the active component of the coffee which aids in warding off the feeling of hunger and enhance burning of fat. The theory is that HCA boosts carbohydrate oxidation or the burning of carbohydrates. It also inhibits the enzyme that converts excess carbs into fats and inhibit fat absorption into the intestinal walls. Furthermore, the compound doesn’t have any known side effects so it’s safe for use. However, there are several conditions that should be inhibited from taking the coffee such as pregnant and lactating women, as well as diabetic (type 2) patients.

Undeniably, there are a lot of people who prefer drinking coffee rather than tea because of its taste and even the nutritional benefits that we derive from it. Coffee is also rich in antioxidants that boost the immune system and help fight off certain diseases like cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular conditions. As for Leisure 18, animal studies have supported the claims of its main anti-obesity ingredient HCA. However, human trials are still lacking, and research is still underway to test its efficacy.

But because some products are introduced as dietary supplements, most of them do not undergo strict FDA inspection, which is why slimming coffees are rampant in the market nowadays. Many may have already attested to the wonders of slimming coffees, nevertheless, further clinical studies should still be performed to make sure of its efficacy and consequences on one’s health.
