Several dietary supplements are currently marketed for management of hypertension, but the evidence for effectiveness is conflicting. Our objective was to critically appraise and evaluate the evidence for the effectiveness of chlorogenic acids (CGAs) on blood pressure, using data from published randomized clinical trials (RCTs). Electronic searches were conducted in Medline, Embase, Amed, Cinahl and The Cochrane Library. We also hand-searched the bibliographies of all retrieved articles. Two… 

The effect of green coffee extract supplementation on blood pressure: A systematic review and meta‐analysis of randomized controlled trials

The results of the current meta‐analysis study support the use of GCBE supplementation for the improvement of blood pressure indices, with subgroup analysis highlighting improvements in hypertensive patients.

The Effect of Anthocyanins on Blood Pressure

Results from this meta-analysis do not favor any clinical efficacy of supplementation with anthocyanins in improving blood pressure and further well-designed large randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with long follow-up period are needed.

Beneficial Effects of Chlorogenic Acids on Essential Hypertension

Polyphenols and chlorogenic acids are potent antioxidant compounds occurring in many dietary sources but primarily in green coffee extracts and could be the bases for supporting an important adjuvant therapy for the treatment of essential hypertension.

Chlorogenic acid: A comprehensive review of the dietary sources, processing effects, bioavailability, beneficial properties, mechanisms of action, and future directions.

This review focuses on the beneficial properties for health and mechanisms of action of 5-CQA, starting with its history, isomers, dietary sources, processing effects, preparation methods, pharmacological safety evaluation, and bioavailability.

Dietary polyphenol intake and risk of hypertension in the Polish arm of the HAPIEE study

Certain classes of dietary polyphenols were associated with lower risk of hypertension, but potential differences between men and women should be further investigated.

Chlorogenic acid from coffee beans: evaluating the evidence for a blood pressure–regulating health claim

The evidence regarding the use of chlorogenic acid for BP regulation in humans is examined in the context of Health Canada’s health claims framework.

Hydroxycinnamic acids and human health. Recent advances.

This review aims to summarize the latest research advances related to HCAs bioavailability and their biological effects revealed by epidemiological data, pre-clinical and clinical studies, and aims to review the effects of HCAs on gut microbiota diversity and functions, and its respective influence on the host health.

The Effect of Dietary Polyphenols on Vascular Health and Hypertension: Current Evidence and Mechanisms of Action

The aim of this review was to explore existing evidence from studies conducted on humans and summarize the mechanisms of action of dietary polyphenols on vascular health, blood pressure and



Acute effects of chlorogenic acid on nitric oxide status, endothelial function, and blood pressure in healthy volunteers: a randomized trial.

Investigating the acute effects of chlorogenic acid, an important dietary phenolic acid present in coffee, on nitric oxide status, endothelial function, and blood pressure found it can lower blood pressure acutely, an effect that, if sustained, would benefit cardiovascular health.

The Blood Pressure-Lowering Effect and Safety of Chlorogenic Acid from Green Coffee Bean Extract in Essential Hypertension

CGA from GCE is effective in decreasing blood pressure and safe for patients with mild hypertension and there was no difference in body mass index and pulse rate between groups, nor were there any apparent side effects.

Antihypertensive effects and mechanisms of chlorogenic acids

In the framework of lifestyle modification for the management of cardiovascular risk factors, the dietary consumption of CGAs may hold promise for providing a non-pharmacological approach for the prevention and treatment of high blood pressure.

Hydroxyhydroquinone interferes with the chlorogenic acid-induced restoration of endothelial function in spontaneously hypertensive rats.

Based on the content ratio of HHQ and chlorogenic acids in coffee, HHQ interfered with the CQA-induced improvement in blood pressure and endothelial function in SHR, explaining the conflicting action of coffee drinking on hypertension and vascular reactivity.

Chlorogenic acids from green coffee extract are highly bioavailable in humans.

This study shows that the major CGA compounds present in green coffee are highly absorbed and metabolized in humans.

Effect of modest salt reduction on blood pressure: a meta-analysis of randomized trials. Implications for public health

A meta-analysis of randomised salt reduction trials found that a modest reduction in salt intake for a duration of 4 or more weeks does have a significant and, from a population viewpoint, important effect on blood pressure in both hypertensive and normotensive individuals.

Chlorogenic acid attenuates hypertension and improves endothelial function in spontaneously hypertensive rats

Dietary CQA reduces oxidative stress and improves nitric oxide bioavailability by inhibiting excessive production of reactive oxygen species in the vasculature, and leads to the attenuation of endothelial dysfunction, vascular hypertrophy, and hypertension in spontaneously hypertensive rats.
