Early research shows that adults with obesity who take a specific green coffee extract (Svetol, Naturex) five times daily for 8 weeks to 12 weeks, either alone or together with the regular coffee product Coffee Slender, lose an average of 2.5 to 3.7 kg more weight than people taking a placebo or regular coffee by itself.
