Chlorogenic Acid is most often used for
Chlorogenic acid is a phytochemical found in coffee and coffee beans. It has been touted as being able to reduce blood sugar levels and potentially exert an anti-diabetic effect. It has also been implicated in weight loss and exerting an anti-obesity effect, but that is insofar correlation and not necessarily due to chlorogenic acid.
It can be beneficial to supplement, although doses found in food sources are enough for a long-term preventative (anti-diabetic) measure.
- Coffee bean extract
- 5-O-caffeoylquinic acid
- 3-O-caffeoylquinic acid Green coffee extract
- Corosolic Acid
Supplemental chlorogenic acid appears to have benefit in the range of 120-300mg oral intake, with higher doses still possibly beneficial (not really tested sufficiently). These doses appear to benefit blood pressure and circulation mostly.
This dose seems to be low enough that moderate to high doses of plants with a rich chlorogenic acid content may confer the benefits listed on this page, this most notably includes green coffee extract.
