- G-6-Pase translocase inhibitors such as chlorogenic acid may be useful for the reduction of inappropriately high rates of hepatic glucose output often found in type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetics and obese individuals.
- Strong plasma antioxidants, such as chlorogenic acid, may reduce LDL oxidation, positively impacting the quality of life of diabetic patients.
- Chlorogenic acid's ability to affect gastrointestinal hormones may delay glucose uptake in the small intestine and shift the site of glucose absorption to more distal parts of the intestine.
- Scientific studies have demonstrated that coffee consumption may have an inverse associated risk with developing type 2 diabetes.
- Chlorogenic acid has also demonstrated the ability to provide a slimming effect versus a placebo.
