Chlorogenic acid is a hydroxycinnamic acid and phytonutrient that is mainly found in coffee. Research has revealed that it is very effective at treating diabetes and can help sufferers keep their blood sugar levels in balance. It also keeps you protected from several nasty health disorders. In this article I will be providing a complete breakdown of chlorogenic acid and discussing how it can benefit your body.
Chlorogenic acid was discovered in 1932 but it is unknown who made this discovery.
2) HEALTH ADVANTAGES:
Chlorogenic acid is an excellent nutrient for people struggling with diabetes (an illness where your blood glucose levels become dangerously high). Studies have shown that it can ensure glucose is released into your blood more slowly after eating, reduce overall blood sugar levels and improve the production of insulin (a hormone that allows your body’s cells to take glucose from the blood).
In addition to this, it works as an antioxidant (a substance that protects your body’s cells from dangerous free radicals), prevents atherosclerosis (an ailment where hard plaques form on your artery walls and restrict the flow of blood) and prevents cancer (a health disorder where your body’s cells begin to grow in a rapid, out of control way)
Finally, this hydroxycinnamic acid reduces blood levels of low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (a type of cholesterol that blocks the artery walls and increases your cardiovascular disease risk), reduces your heart disease risk (by preventing atherosclerosis and reducing blood levels of LDL cholesterol) and supports healthy weight loss (by stimulating the use of body fat for energy).
3) RECOMMENDED DAILY ALLOWANCE (RDA):
Chlorogenic acid is not considered to be essential for human survival so no official RDA has been established. However, research shows that ingesting between 60 milligrams (mg) and 185mg of this hydroxycinnamic acid every day will allow you to activate its health benefits. This is the equivalent of 1 or 2 cups of coffee per day.
Green coffee beans are the best natural source of chlorogenic acid and contains between 35mg and 175mg of this hydroxycinnamic acid per 100 millilitres (ml). Apples, blueberries, pears, sunflower seeds, tea and tomatoes are also good food sources of this phytonutrient but the exact amounts they contain are not known.
Clearly, coffee has a lot more to offer than just caffeine. So ensure you do not neglect this impressive hot beverage. Not only is it a fantastic way to wake yourself up in the morning but it is also on the list of best ways to supply your body with a healthy dose of chlorogenic acid.
