Below we take an in-depth look at Spring Valley Svetol Green Coffee Bean Plus Yerba Mate to see whether it is an effective weight loss aid, or merely a source of antioxidants, as described by the manufacturer.
Spring Valley Svetol Green Coffee Bean Plus Yerba Mate is a weight loss supplement that could aid weight loss. However, the manufacturers do not promote this, instead pointing out that the product is a good source of antioxidants. Both ingredients used in this product are sources of naturally occurring caffeine, and so could potentially increase the metabolism of the consumer slightly for a few hours after consumption.
Spring Valley Svetol Green Coffee Bean Plus Yerba Mate is one of many products marketed under the Spring Valley range. However, we could not find much information about the manufacturers of the Spring Valley range at all. We did find a report on mislabelled and adulterated supplements which noted that Spring Valley is one of the few brands tested that actually contained the exact list of ingredients provided on the label, which does reflect well upon whoever actually makes the product. Some sources seem to suggest that Spring Valley is a Walmart brand, although the product is also available on amazon.
For adults, take three (3) capsules daily, preferably with a meal.
Unusually for potential weight loss products, Spring Valley does not describe how their products can benefit the user, or what effects consumers can expect. Spring Valley does offer the following description for this product:
Green coffee possesses beneficial antioxidant properties. Spring Valley Green Coffee Bean Dietary Supplement Capsules contain Svetol, the plant extract from fresh green coffee beans and has not been roasted.
The ingredients used in Spring Valley Svetol Green Coffee Bean Plus Yerba Mate are provided below; as the name of the product would suggest, the two active ingredients used in this product are Green Coffee Bean and Yerba Mate. The ingredient quantities are not provided either on the Walmart or Amazon sales pages for this product. The front of the bottle does state ‘133mg’, but it is unclear whether this is a total proprietary formula, or whether it refers to the amount of green coffee bean in each capsule.
The only strong evidence that showed a link between green coffee bean and weight loss was retracted in October 2014. Green Coffee Bean extract is unlikely to contribute to significant weight loss, as there is a lack of relevant and legitimate clinical support. It is a source of caffeine, which will have a mild impact upon weight loss through increasing the body’s metabolic rate for a few hours after consumption.
Despite having only two ingredients, Spring Valley Svetol Green Coffee Bean Plus Yerba Mate does have some potential side effects.
Both Green Coffee Bean and Yerba Mate contain naturally occurring caffeine. Consumption of caffeine can cause a variety of side effects, including headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness, and insomnia.
There is also an amino acid in Green Coffee Bean called homocysteine that is associated with an increased risk of heart disease.
Long term use of yerba mate with alcohol increases the chances of some cancers.

There are numerous customer reviews for this product on the Walmart website. It is important to note that many of the reviewers are also taking raspberry ketone supplements alongside this product, and it is difficult to evaluate the various effects of two supplements when they are taken together.
Got this product because the reviews were amazing, got really excited about it. But have took it and took it got NO results from it. For you all who have gotten good results with it please tell me your secret because there was no change in my weight like you all have claimed.
Worst waste of money I’ve ever had. Not only did I not lose weight, but during the month that I tried this I GAINED 17 pounds and went up 2 sizes! This product is worthless.
I take 1 capsule pretty much everyday and try to exercise daily. when I first started to take the pills I noticed that it did affect my sleep so I just took them in the mornings. I’ve been taking the pills for about 15 days and have lost a total of 11 pounds. All it takes is discipline, diet, perspiration, and hard work. And of course a little help from these pills.
I had been on a low calorie diet and had lost 38 pds. I hit a plateau and needed to find something that would help me loose this last 15 pds. I read the reviews on this product and decided to try it. It is awesome! I take 3 pills a day. One pill with each meal. I have lost 7 pds in 6 days! I highly recommend this product.
There was a lot of hype about this product, and I was not a believer, but decided to try it. It’s been 2 months, I take 1- 30 mins before every meal, (and 2x a day I take raspberry ketones) and stepped on the scale. Lost 27 lbs, and dropped 3 pant sizes. I sit all day at work, and haven’t been to the gym much. I eat much less then I did, but I truly believe, if you take this product as directed, you will lose something.
Today makes 1 week since I have been taking this along with Raspberry ketone and I have lost 7 pounds so far. I had to buy new batteries for my scale because I thought it was broken. But, yep, this works for me. And the price is the best. The only thing i had to change is my water intake. You have to drink lots of it. Love this product. Definitely going to stick with it.
There is no complete information about the ingredient quantities used in this product, and so it is more difficult to establish whether or not this product is effective. However, looking at the ingredients list, it is likely that Spring Valley Svetol Green Coffee Bean Plus Yerba Mate is unlikely to aid significant weight loss. There is no concrete or strong evidence that Green Coffee Bean is an effective weight loss aid beyond being a source of caffeine, which could burn a small amount of additional calories through a small increase to the metabolism. Yerba Mate has stronger clinical evidence associated with its use, but again, it is not a very strong weight loss aid.
The product should increase energy levels provided the two ingredients are present in adequate quantities. However, significant weight loss is unlikely.
The customer reviews are often biased as consumers are regularly taking this product in combination with raspberry ketones.
Customer opinions are mixed; whilst some people lose weight and feel that their appetite has been suppressed, others found no benefits at all and lost no weight.
Spring Valley Svetol Green Coffee Bean Plus Yerba Mate is available from the Walmart website. A single bottle of 30 capsules costs $5.98 plus delivery charges. It may also be available in selected Walmart stores across the USA.
The product is also sold on Amazon, with a single bottle costing $4.50 plus delivery charges.
Whilst the product appears to be very cheap per bottle, when taken according to the directions for use, a single bottle will only last for 10 days; this makes it more expensive to use in the long term, and it may even be more cost effective to buy a different product with similar ingredients in larger doses per capsule.
There is no money-back guarantee for this product. Walmart does not accept opened products for return, and returns in store require a receipt.
Spring Valley Green Coffee Bean Plus Yerba Mate contains only two ingredients, but only one ingredient has any clinical support linking it with weight loss. Yerba mate could aid some weight loss thanks toitst caffeine content, but caffeine is still considered to be a fairly weak metabolism booster. The ingredient quantities are unknown, but customer comments state that the dosage is low.
There is no money back guarantee for this product, but a single bottle is very cheap. However, because of the high number of capsules that consumers need to take each day, a single bottle will only last or 10 days, and so using it for a prolonged period of time does become slightly more expensive.
Overall, we would not recommend Spring Valley Svetol Green Coffee Bean Plus Yerba to our readers, as it is not an effective weight loss aid.
