1. Can Aid Diabetes Treatment
The chlorogenic acid in green coffee beans was found to affect blood glucose levels. In the study, participants who received a high dose of GCE (400 mg) saw the biggest drop in blood glucose levels (5).
Daily intake of three to four cups of decaffeinated coffee with high chlorogenic acid content was found to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by 30% (6). Chlorogenic acid also stimulates insulin secretion and has been often described as a potential anti-diabetic agent.
