Coffee Fruit Extract


“WCFC is a patented extract of whole coffee fruit (coffee berries) from the common coffee bean, Coffea arabica. It contains chemicals called procyanidins which are known to protect brain cells, as well as a unique profile of polyphenols that may well relate to its ability to raise BDNF so dramatically.”

I searched all over the net to find Coffee Fruit Extract but couldn’t locate one.

Any idea where to find it?

Thank you.Will do



Pine Bark Extract (PBE) and Grape Seed Extract are well known for their very high proanthocyanidin content and both have very good safety profiles. The PBE that I take states that it has a minimum of 90% proanthocyanidins. Procyanidins fall into the proanthocyanidin group of flavenoids. Both are noted for many beneficial health effects such as potent antiinflammatory qualities. I have not seen any direct studies regarding PD and PBE, but I suspect at higher dosing it, may be useful because many of its known health benefits would be useful in terms of PD.

Well here is one rodent study suggesting as much.
