This coffee contains enzymes that support the breakdown of fat cells. These enzymes appear to be naturally present in coffee, but are usually destroyed during roasting.

What is enzymatic coffee?
This brew is made with the highest quality coffee (Asprey patent), two teaspoons of organic low-fat butter, and concentrated coconut oil.
Enzymatic coffee is a type of coffee that has been blended with enzymes to reduce body weight.
The health benefits of enzymes have already been studied. However, the effects of coffee enzymes on weight loss have not been studied thoroughly enough to confirm their beneficial effects.
The origin of coffee with enzymes
It was invented in 2014 by Californian entrepreneur Dave Asprey, who discovered the combination when he passed out on a trip to Tibet and his tour guide served him buttered coffee.
This cup of coffee instantly revitalized him and became the turning point for his new creation.
The benefits of enzymatic coffee
While most enzyme manufacturers focus on weight loss, other benefits cannot be overlooked.
These include increased metabolism, improved digestion and fat burning. However, all of these benefits are associated with general coffee consumption, so you don’t need to drink enzyme-enriched coffee to get these benefits.
What are enzymes?
Enzymes are proteins found in the human body and in almost all organic matter. These proteins are used as reagents to speed up or slow down various chemical reactions.
Depending on their chemical composition and function in the body, different types of enzymes trigger different reactions. For example, some enzymes promote digestion by breaking down food as acids, etc. Some enzymes promote energy production by aiding in synthesis.
Finally, enzymes are used to break down fats and carbohydrates. By breaking down fats, enzymes help the body use fat efficiently, which leads to fat loss. By breaking down carbohydrates, enzymes contribute to the generation of energy, which can then be used for physical activity and thus for burning fat.
How is coffee made with enzymes?
Like all other plants, coffee has its own natural enzymes that do not require any additional ingredients:
- According to companies and brands developing coffee products for weight loss, most of the natural enzymes in coffee are destroyed when the green coffee beans are roasted, so regular black coffee probably doesn’t have enough enzymes to help with weight loss.
- A special enzyme blend is added after the roasting process to ensure that the added enzymes are not destroyed by overheating. The calories added to the coffee are not enough to break down the extra enzymes. These are believed to support weight loss and increase energy levels.
- For some, adding enzymes to coffee simply means that the benefits already contained in green coffee beans continue to be realized.
What kind of enzymes does this coffee contain?
The main enzymes contained in brown enzymes are cellulases, amylases and proteases.
These enzymes were chosen because they are the enzymes in the body most commonly associated with increased metabolism and the ability to burn calories more efficiently and prevent new fat cells from forming.
Diet coffee may also contain other ingredients or other enzymes, but these three are generally associated with more efficient use of fat cells.
As the name suggests, cellulase is an enzyme that targets cellulose. You probably know cellulose as the hard-green substance found in the stems and leaves of many plants.
Although high-cellulose plants are an excellent source of fiber, the body cannot properly break down and utilize fiber if it does not have enough cellulase enzymes.
Amylase is an enzyme that helps break down carbohydrates and is absorbed in large amounts through the saliva and pancreas.
It is believed that insufficient amylase levels can lead to complications; a balanced diet contains a large amount of carbohydrates, which are usually a rich source of fiber and the main source of sugar in the body.
Amylase is necessary for maintaining a healthy weight and promoting weight loss because it efficiently breaks down the various chemical components of carbohydrates and converts them into sugars for energy.
Finally, proteases are enzymes involved in the cleaving of proteins. Like amylase, protease is lost in excess because it prevents the body from efficiently breaking down proteins.
High protein levels are necessary for brain health, recovery from regular exercise, and satiety, all of which contribute to losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight.
Does coffee with enzymes Help you lose weight?
The answer is not yet known.
Although drinking a cup of coffee a day (or more) outside of a healthy diet has been linked to weight loss, there are no major scientific studies in food science examining the effects of coffee consumption with enzymes.
Can everyone drink enzyme coffee?
The answer is clearly no. This drink is not suitable for those who need to limit their saturated fat or caffeine intake for health reasons.
When you replace your regular breakfast with enzyme coffee, you’re missing out on other important nutrients your body needs. This can lead to certain nutrient deficiencies and even increase cholesterol levels.
