L Mills et al, 2018. The effect of dose expectancies on caffeine withdrawal symptoms during tapered dose reduction, Journal of Psychopharmacology, published online.

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Negative expectancies can exacerbate withdrawal symptoms via the nocebo effect. As such, information provided about dose reductions during attempts to taper a drug could contribute to withdrawal symptoms and increase the likelihood of relapse. The current study tested whether blinding participants to dose reductions during a supervised caffeine dose taper reduced these nocebo-induced […]

R Zamora-Ros et al, 2018. Coffee and tea drinking in relation to the risk of differentiated thyroid carcinoma: results from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) Study, European Journal of Nutrition, published online.

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Negative expectancies can exacerbate withdrawal symptoms via the nocebo effect. As such, information provided about dose reductions during attempts to taper a drug could contribute to withdrawal symptoms and increase the likelihood of relapse.

A Kuang et al, 2018. Lipidomic response to coffee consumption, Nutrients, Volume 10 (12).

ABSTRACT Coffee is widely consumed and contains many bioactive compounds, any of which may impact pathways related to disease development. Our objective was to identify individual lipid changes in response to coffee drinking. We profiled the lipidome of fasting serum samples collected from a previously reported single blinded, three-stage clinical trial. Forty-seven habitual coffee consumers […]

F Gao et al, 2018. Coffee consumption is positively related to insulin secretion in the Shanghai high-risk diabetic screens (SHiDS) study, Nutrition and Metabolism (London), published online.

ABSTRACT Background: It has been proved that coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus. But the benefit effect of coffee on hyperglycemia in Chinese population was largely unknown. Besides, the relationship of coffee intake and diabetic pathogenesis was still unclear. Methods: The study population was selected from the Shanghai […]

R Ochiai et al, 2018. Effects of chlorogenic acids on fatigue and sleep in healthy males: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study, Food Science and Nutrition, Volume 6(8).

ABSTRACT Chlorogenic acids (CGAs) are found in abundance in coffee beans and have numerous health benefits. This study investigated the effect of CGAs extracted from coffee beans on fatigue and sleep in healthy participants. This crossover study involved 16 men (aged 30–54 years) who were daytime workers with weekends off work. The participants were randomized […]
