Chlorogenic acid (CGA), an important biologically active dietary polyphenol, is produced by certain plant species and is a major component of coffee. Reduction in the risk of a variety of diseases following CGA consumption has been mentioned in recent basic and clinical research studies. This systematic review discusses in vivo animal and human studies of the physiological and biochemical effects of chlorogenic acids (CGAs) on biomarkers of chronic disease. We searched PubMed, Embase, Amed and…

Consumption of Chlorogenic Acids through Coffee and Health Implications

It is possible to conclude that the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of coffee CGA are responsible for, at least to a certain extent, the association between coffee consumption and lower incidence of various degenerative and non-degenerative diseases, in addition to higher longevity.

Coffee Chlorogenic Acids Incorporation for Bioactivity Enhancement of Foods: A Review

The demand of foods with high antioxidant capacity have increased and research on these foods continues to grow. This review is focused on chlorogenic acids (CGAs) from green coffee, which is the

Effects of a Chlorogenic Acid-Containing Herbal Medicine (LASNB) on Colon Cancer

Investigation into the underlying molecular mechanism indicated that LASNB suppressed the activation of receptor tyrosine kinase- (RTK-) MEK-ERK and NF-κB pathways, which has the potential to be used as a supplementary herbal medicine for the treatment of colon cancer.

Biological Impact of Phenolic Compounds from Coffee on Colorectal Cancer

The results suggest the potential of coffee to modulate biological mechanisms involved in colorectal cancer development; however, more studies are required to understand the mechanistic insights of these observations.

Neuroprotective Effects of Coffee Bioactive Compounds: A Review

This review summarizes the current knowledge on the neuroprotective potential of the main bioactive coffee components, i.e., caffeine, chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, trigonelline, kahweol, and cafestol.

Therapeutic promises of Chlorogenic acid with special emphasis on its anti-obesity property.

CGA shows promises as an antioxidant, glycemic control agent, anti-hypertensive,Anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, neuro-protective and anti-obesity agent.



Evaluation of the anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic activities of the natural polyphenol chlorogenic acid.

Evaluating the anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive and antipyretic activities of chlorogenic acid in rats found that at the highest tested dose, CGA did not inhibit the febrile response induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in rats.

Chlorogenic acid, a polyphenol from Prunus domestica (Mirabelle), with coupled anxiolytic and antioxidant effects

Instant coffee with high chlorogenic acid levels protects humans against oxidative damage of macromolecules.

The oxidation of DNA, lipids and proteins associated with the incidence of various diseases and the protection against their oxidative damage may be indicative for beneficial health effects of coffee.

In vitro and in vivo antioxidant properties of chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid.

Lipolytic Activity of Svetol®, a Decaffeinated Green Coffee Bean Extract

The results showed that although lipolytic activity observed following short‐term incubation could be tentatively linked to residual caffeine traces in the sample, longer‐term exposure clearly showed the effects of Svetol® on release of free fatty acids, and this effect was not due to caffeine.

The dietary hydroxycinnamate caffeic acid and its conjugate chlorogenic acid increase vitamin e and cholesterol concentrations in Sprague-Dawley rats.

It is demonstrated that dietary caffeic and chlorogenic acid may elevate tocopherols and cholesterol in vivo.

Chlorogenic acids and other cinnamates – nature, occurrence and dietary burden

This review defines the range of forms in which cinnamates (p-coumarates, caffeates, ferulates and sinapates) occur in foods and beverages subdividing them into (i) the classic chlorogenic acids and
