This study measured the influence of 2-weeks ingestion of high chlorogenic acid (CQA) coffee on postexercise inflammation and oxidative stress, with secondary outcomes including performance and mood state. [] Key Method Cyclists (N = 15) were randomized to CQA coffee or placebo (300 ml/day) for 2 weeks, participated in a 50-km cycling time trial, and then crossed over to the opposite condition with a 2-week washout period.

Effect of food sources of nitrate, polyphenols, L-arginine and L-citrulline on endurance exercise performance: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials

Foods rich in polyphenols and nitrate provide trivial benefits for endurance exercise performance, although these effects may be food dependent.

Effects of Caffeine and 5-Caffeoylquinic Acid on Blood Cell In Vitro Cytokine Production in Response to Lipopolysaccharide Stimulation

Both caffeine and 5-CQA exerted limited in vitro anti-inflammatory effects, but for caffeine, these effects were attained with high physiological concentrations, however, for 5- CQA, supraphysiological concentrations were needed.

Almond intake alters the acute plasma dihydroxy-octadecenoic acid (DiHOME) response to eccentric exercise

Positive effects of almond intake in improving mood state, retaining strength, decreasing muscle damage, increasing the generation of gut-derived phenolic metabolites, and altering the plasma oxylipin DiHOME response to unaccustomed eccentric exercise in untrained adults are supported.

Is Coffee a Useful Source of Caffeine Preexercise?

The research pertaining to the use of coffee as an ergogenic aid is discussed, exploring (a) whether caffeinated coffee is ergogenic, (b)  Whether dose-matched caffeinated Coffee provides a performance benefit similar in magnitude to caffeine anhydrous, and (c)  whether decaffeinated coffee consumption affects the ergogenic effects of a subsequent isolated caffeine dose.

Mental Performance and Sport: Caffeine and Co-consumed Bioactive Ingredients

This literature suggests relevant benefits to mental performance that exceed those associated with caffeine for multi-ingredient energy drinks/shots and several low-caffeine extracts, including high-flavanol cocoa and guarana.


• Caffeine, when taken alone in a research context, is associated with consistent ergogenic and psychological benefits, although within differing optimal dose ranges. The effects of caffeine on

Health Effects of Coffee: Mechanism Unraveled?

It is argued here that coffee as a plant food has similar beneficial properties to many vegetables and fruits and employs similar pathways of promoting health as assumed for other vegetables andruits.

Effect of Caffeine Supplementation on Sports Performance Based on Differences Between Sexes: A Systematic Review

Caffeine supplementation produced a similar ergogenic benefit for aerobic performance and the fatigue index in men and women athletes, Nevertheless, the effects of caffeine to produce more power, total weight lifted and to improve sprint performance with respect to a placebo was higher in men than women athletes despite the same dose of caffeine being administered.

International society of sports nutrition position stand: caffeine and exercise performance

Caffeine has been shown to be ergogenic for cognitive function, including attention and vigilance, in most individuals and may improve cognitive and physical performance in some individuals under conditions of sleep deprivation.

Implication of dietary phenolic acids on inflammation in cardiovascular disease.

Recent evidence on the role of phenolic acids and their anti-inflammatory significance in studies published during the last 5 years is outlined and reviewed.



Coffee Consumption Increases the Antioxidant Capacity of Plasma and Has No Effect on the Lipid Profile or Vascular Function in Healthy Adults in a Randomized Controlled Trial.

Both coffees, which containedCGAs and were low in diterpenes and caffeine, provided bioavailable CGAs and had a positive acute effect on the plasma AC in healthy adults and no effect on blood lipids or vascular function.

The Metabolic and Performance Effects of Caffeine Compared to Coffee during Endurance Exercise

It is illustrated that both caffeine (5 mg/kg/BW) and coffee consumed 1 h prior to exercise can improve endurance exercise performance.

The effect of an acute ingestion of Turkish coffee on reaction time and time trial performance

Acute ingestion of Turkish coffee resulted in a significant elevation in plasma caffeine concentrations within 30-min of consumption and significant performance benefits in reaction time and an increase in subjective feelings of energy in habitual caffeine users.

Variations in caffeine and chlorogenic acid contents of coffees: what are we drinking?

It is evident that the ingestion of 200 mg of caffeine per day can be readily and unwittingly exceeded by regular coffee drinkers and more accurate measurement of the intake of coffee and its potentially bioactive components are required if epidemiological studies are to produce more reliable information.

Effects of coffee consumption on subclinical inflammation and other risk factors for type 2 diabetes: a clinical trial.

Coffee consumption appears to have beneficial effects on subclinical inflammation and HDL cholesterol, whereas no changes in glucose metabolism were found in the authors' study.

The Effects of Preexercise Caffeinated Coffee Ingestion on Endurance Performance: An Evidence-Based Review.

Based on the reviewed studies there is moderate evidence supporting the use of coffee as an ergogenic aid to improve performance in endurance cycling and running.

The increase in human plasma antioxidant capacity after acute coffee intake is not associated with endogenous non-enzymatic antioxidant components

It is suggested that coffee components spare endogenous antioxidants or are themselves the main contributors to plasma AC increase after coffee intake, as well as changes in AC assays, which did not correlate with endogenous components, which remained unchanged.

Coffee drinking influences plasma antioxidant capacity in humans.

It is argued that uric acid is the main component responsible for the plasma AC increase after tea drinking, whereas molecules other than uric Acid (probably phenolic compounds) are likely to beresponsible for the increase in plasma AC after coffee drinking.

Bioappearance and pharmacokinetics of bioactives upon coffee consumption

The pharmacokinetic profiles suggest that particularly trigonelline, caffeine, its metabolites, as well as late appearing dihydroferulic acid, feruloylglycine and dihydrobacterial acid formed from chlorogenic acid by the intestinal microflora accumulate in the plasma due to their long half-life times during habitual consumption of several cups of coffee distributed over the day.

Dose-response plasma appearance of coffee chlorogenic and phenolic acids in adults.

It is shown that coffee phenolics appear in a positive dose-response manner in plasma when drank at nutritionally relevant doses, confirming previous findings about coffee bioavailability and confirming an early absorption in the gastrointestinal tract.
