…a new study suggests a chemical compound found in coffee might protect against a host of obesity-related diseases, as well.
…It’s a potent antioxidant called chlorogenic acid (CGA), which scientists focused on in a new study published in Pharmaceutical Research. For 15 weeks, the researchers fed mice a high-fat diet while also injecting them with a chlorogenic acid solution twice a week. Not only did the CGA prevent the mice from gaining weight during the test period, but the effects against obesity were also promising.
- the researchers worked with mice
- the mice were injected with a high dose of CGA – a lot more than you’d get in a standard cup of coffee
