Coffee and Chlorogenic Acid- Book Excerpt of the Week 

This excerpt comes from PART THREE of my book, where I talk about the science behind energy drink ingredients! 

Large studies involving thousands of people across multiple countries have shown the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus decreases as coffee consumption increases. [Higdon, J.F. and B.Frei.2006. Coffee and Health: A Review of Recent Human Research. Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition 46:101-123]

We haven’t done a deep-dive here on GreenEyedGuide to discuss chlorogenic acid, but it’s worth noting chlorogenic acid might be one reason for the coffee/diabetes association:

The Missing Piece – Book Excerpt of the Week 

​Whether the other ingredients in an energy drink accentuate the caffeine boost also depends on whether the consumer is missing anything. 

If someone eats a well-balanced diet and doesn’t limit their food choices to 1 or 2 food groups, they probably get enough vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to make the extra ingredients in an energy drink irrelevant. 

Taurine is naturally found in meat, so if you regularly eat meat, getting more taurine with your caffeinated drink won’t really affect you. The same goes for VITAMINS – HOPEFULLY you’re getting enough through food but IF YOU’RE NOT, the extra doses of vitamins can boost the effects you feel from the caffeine.
