Science: Coffee That Helps You Lose Weight

by Greg Pollowitz

There’s nothing quite like a hot cup of coffee to get you going in the morning and now, that beverage enjoyed by 100 million Americans could do more than wake you up: It could help you lose weight.

“Very enticing, I like that idea,” said Monica Merlucci.

It’s possible with a new beverage made by Javita, a Boca Raton-based company that’s now selling Weight Loss Coffee.

“People don’t like to take pills, they can’t take pills or they forget to take pills, but they will drink coffee,” said Cooper City endocrinologist Dr. Kenneth Gelman.

The coffee contains an ingredient called garcinia cambogia, an extract from a tropical fruit that’s been shown to boost metabolism and lower cholesterol. . .
