L H Naylor et al, 2020. Acute dose-response effect of coffee-derived chlorogenic acids on the human vasculature in healthy volunteers: a randomized controlled trial, American Journal on Clinical Nutrition, published online.

ABSTRACT Background:  Epidemiological studies have reported lower risk of cardiovascular disease with moderate coffee consumption. In addition, emerging evidence indicates that consumption of coffee beverages enriched in chlorogenic acids (CGAs) may influence blood pressure and endothelial function, suggesting that the beneficial cardiovascular effect of coffee may relate to its CGA content. Objectives:  We conducted a […]

V G Kelly et al, 2020. Inside the belly of the beast: individualizing nutrition for young, professional male rugby league players: a review, International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, published online.

ABSTRACT Professional rugby league (RL) football is a contact sport involving repeated collisions and high-intensity efforts; both training and competition involve high energy expenditure. The present review summarizes and critiques the available literature relating the physiological demands of RL to nutritional requirements and considers potential ergogenic supplements that could improve players’ physical capacity, health, and […]

J Zhu et al, 2020. Association of Coffee and Tea Consumption with Lung Cancer Risk, International Journal of Cancer, published online.

ABSTRACT Associations of coffee and tea consumption with lung cancer risk have been inconsistent, and most lung cancer cases investigated were smokers. Included in this study were over 1.1 million participants from 17 prospective cohorts. Cox regression analyses were conducted to estimate hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). Potential effect modifications by sex, […]

Y Enokuchi et al, 2020. Effects of Chlorogenic Acids on Menopausal Symptoms in Healthy Women: A Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Double-blind, Parallel-group Trial, Nutrients, Volume 12 (12).

ABSTRACT A reduction in estrogen levels in the perimenopausal and postmenopausal periods causes various symptoms in women, such as hot flushes, sweats, depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Chlorogenic acids (CGAs), which are phenolic compounds widely present in plants such as coffee beans, have various physiological functions. However, the effects of CGAs on menopausal symptoms are unknown. […]

M D Machado-Fragua et al, 2020. Coffee consumption and risk of hearing impairment in men and women, Clinical Nutrition, published online.

ABSTRACT Background:  Hearing loss is the fifth leading cause of disability in the world. Coffee consumption might have a beneficial effect on hearing function because of the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of some of its compounds. However, no previous longitudinal study has assessed the association between coffee consumption and the risk of hearing impairment. Objective:  […]
