Frequently Asked Questions

What is Svetol®?

Svetol® is the most studied and proven green coffee bean extract for losing weight and increasing lean body mass. Svetol®, developed by Naturex, is a natural plant extract of decaffeinated green coffee. Svetol® is derived from 100% premium Robusta beans that have undergone a proprietary processing technology which extracts a high concentration of key chlorogenic acids.

Is Svetol® safe? Are there any side effects?

Svetol® is safe and free of side effects. Svetol® is the most studied green coffee bean extract backed by 3 in-vivo studies, 3 clinical trials and 2 in-vitro studies. These studies helped us to understand the mechanism of action of our ingredient and to check safety and toxicological parameters to ensure the naturalness and safety of Svetol®.

How does Svetol® work?

Obtained through a specific extraction process, Svetol® possesses a unique composition that offers the benefits of coffee in a plant extract and helps promote weight loss.  The process of extraction used by Naturex aims to preserve the plant’s identity while extracting a high concentration of key chlorogenic acids. Studies show Svetol® reduces the production of glucose, reduces intestinal absorption of glucose, and causes the body to draw upon stored fat for energy, thus reducing BMI.

What are the benefits of Svetol®?

  • Clinical studies reveal 400 mg of Svetol® per day (during 2 months)  contributes to weight management by lowering glucose release in the blood stream.
  • Helps metabolize fats
  • Contains less caffeine than a quarter cup of coffee

Svetol® is safe and supported by published scientific studies and can be used in any food preparation or food supplement.

How long has Svetol® been around?


Who makes Svetol®?

Svetol® is made by Naturex, which manufactures natural specialty ingredients for the Food & Beverage, Nutrition & Health and Personal Care industries. Naturex has 16 production units worldwide and owns a factory in the USA.

What is new with Svetol?

The latest published in-vitro study shows that Svetol® increases the lipolytic activity by 124% vs. control in fat cells and supports its use in fat burning formulations. Svetol® is effective in increasing the lean mass to fat mass ratio, which will ultimately lead to a decrease in body fat.

When will I start to see results?

Svetol® will start to work immediately, but results will vary from person to person. For best results, Svetol® should be taken for 2 months, along with a healthy diet.

Can I use a multi-vitamin while taking Svetol®?

Yes, a multi-vitamin can be taken along with Svetol® since Svetol® is completely safe and free of side effects; no interactions have been reported.

Are coffee and green coffee the same?

No, coffee is made from roasted beans whereas green coffee beans are not roasted. Green coffee beans contain more chlorogenic acids (beneficial and powerful compounds) than coffee since the roasting process degrades these compounds. For this reason, Svetol® is made from unroasted green coffee beans.
