What does chlorogenic acid do in the body?

Jan 14, 2021

1. Antioxidant, slow down aging;

Cell studies have shown that chlorogenic acid can reduce cell death and DNA fragmentation, which can also reduce reactive oxygen species and nitrogen species (ROS / RNOS) levels.

2. Reduce body fat and inhibit fat absorption;

The Journal of International Medical Research found in a human experiment that subjects who ingested green coffee with high content lost an average of 5.4 kg in weight after 12 weeks. The 2010 International Coffee Science Conference Research published in China pointed out that can interfere with the activity of lipase enzymes and inhibit the decomposition and absorption of fats. It also means that subcutaneous fat or visceral fat is not easy to accumulate in the body.

3. Beneficial for blood sugar control;

Dr. Joe Vinson of the University of Scranton, Pennsylvania, published in 2013 that chlorogenic acid has the function of inhibiting glucose absorption ,it can promote weight loss at the same time. As an active ingredient in coffee, it can prevent diabetes, improve prediabetes and diabetes Patient's blood sugar control. "Journal of International Medical Research" also found that chlorogenic acid-rich coffee induced a 6.9% decrease in glucose absorption.

4. Good for blood pressure and blood vessels;

"Clinical and Experimental Hypertension" in a clinical experimental study found that the intake of chlorogenic acid can improve hypertension. The metabolites can attenuate the oxidative stress (reactive oxygen species) response, improve the endothelial function of arteries and blood vessels and benefit from hypertension.
