News & Research:

  • Why Coffee May Reduce Diabetes Risk - WebMD, 1/13/12 - "The Chinese researchers looked at three major active compounds in coffee and their effect on stopping the toxic accumulation of the protein: ... Caffeine ... Caffeic acid or CA ... Chlorogenic acid or CGA ... All three had an effect. However, caffeic acid was best" - Note:  I've always thought that artichoke extract which is 6% chlorogenic acid would do the same thing:
    • Chlorogenic acid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - "Chlorogenic acid is a hydroxycinnamic acid, a member of a family of naturally occurring organic compounds. These are esters of polyphenolic caffeic acid and cyclitol (-)-quinic acid"
  • Java Reduces Type 2 Diabetes Risk - WebMD, 11/7/02 - "Caffeine is known to decrease the body's response to insulin. However, other ingredients found in coffee -- magnesium and chlorogenic acid -- may have beneficial effects ... researchers followed more than 17,000 Dutch adults. After several years of follow-up, those who drank seven or more cups a day were half as likely to develop type 2 diabetes compared with those who drank less than two cups a day ... The long-term effects of drinking too much caffeine are not known and other health issues could develop" - Note:  Chlorogenic acid is in artichoke extract.  If magnesium and chlorogenic acid are the reason for the 50% diabetes reduction, it would seem to be a better choice than drinking seven cups of coffee per day.  See artichoke extract at Amazon.com.
  • Artichoke Leaf Extract May Provide Irritable Bowel Syndrome Relief - Doctor's Guide, 3/22/01 - "Investigators report that the IBS patients had significant reductions in the severity of their IBS symptoms. They also note that both patients and their doctors gave favourable evaluation of the overall effectiveness of the extract ... Furthermore, 96 percent of patients rated artichoke leaf extract as better than or equal to previous therapies administered for their symptoms ... Patients were found to tolerate the extract well"
  • Can Cirrhosis be Prevented? - Nutrition Science News, 1/99 - "Artichoke (Cynara scolymus) leaves are another liver remedy. Recent animal tests show supplementation with artichoke prevented a liver toxin from causing oxidation, thus preventing glutathione destruction. The active compound, cynarin, is found in highest concentrations in the leaves. Chlorogenic acid and other antioxidants are also present"
