Expert pharmacist Omar El-Gohary recently gave his verdict on a number of slimming products for helping to shift the weight in 2014, which includes a product by Kent-based firm FORZA Supplements. The Superintendent Pharmacist for Chemist Direct told the Mail Online: “There is no magic weight loss quick fix, but slimming products can be effective if combined with a balanced, healthy, low calorie diet.”

One of the products featured in his guide to weight loss supplements was FORZA Green Coffee 2:2:1, an antioxidant fat burner that contains a high potent dose of pure green coffee bean. El-Gohary focused on one particular study that showed participants losing an average of 10.5% of their overall bodyweight while taking the supplement. He attributed this weight loss success to chlorogenic acid, a component found in green coffee that currently has many scientists scratching their heads. Chlorogenic acid does not survive the roasting process so unfortunately the weight loss benefits cannot be experienced by simply drinking a cup of coffee. However, El-Gohary was quick to remind readers: “Any weight lost can come back if you don’t stick to a healthy diet and eat in moderation.”
