The Effect Of Chlorogenic Acid Enriched Coffee On Glucose Absorption In Healthy Volunteers And Its Effect On Body Mass When Used Long-term In Overweight And Obese People
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
Acutely, chlorogenic acid enriched coffee (compared to normal coffee) is able to reduce blood sugar levels by inhibiting absorpton. This is quantified at 6.9% inhibition.
When given in a double blind manner over a period of 12 weeks, chlorogenic acid enriched coffee is associated with a 5.4kg loss in weight relative to a 1.7kg loss in weight in obese persons who do not have controls on the diet otherwise. This weight loss may be secondary to decreased glucose absorption.
