1 Health Benefits of Coffee Consumption Vanderbilt Coffee Conference October 26, 2007

2 Coffee is healthful (…rather than harmful) Physicians in the U.S. have long advised their patients that coffee consumption is potentially detrimental to health Attitudes are changing due to emerging epidemiologic and mechanistic research which shows health benefits of coffee compatible with good health health promoting behaviorCoffee consumption is now best viewed as compatible with good health and perhaps even as a health promoting behavior

3 Latest epidemiologic studies consistently show coffee consumption reduces rates of common diseases Depression/anxiety Heart disease Type 2 Diabetes associated with obesity Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases Cancer Alcohol/drug addiction

4 Coffee is not only caffeine & is altered in roasting and metabolism Compound Green beans Roasting Metabolism __________________________________________________ __ Total CGA8%5%0% 5-CAQA5%2%0% 2% CAQ0%2%0% CA0%1%1% 4% DHCA0%0%4% Caffeine2%2%2% __________________________________________________ __ CGA = chlorogenic acidsCAQ = caffeoylquinides 5-CAQA = caffeoylquinic acidQA = quinic acids CA = caffeic acidDHCA = dihydrocaffeic acid

5 mechanisms Study of coffee constituents may help us better understand the mechanisms for health benefits of coffee consumption Depression/anxiety (suicide)* * Atherosclerosis (cardiovascular deaths)* * Degenerative brain disorders (Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases)* * Cancer* Alcohol/drug addiction, type 2 diabetes, and obesity* * (cirrhosis)* *Antioxidant activity *Opioidergic modulation *Adenosine agonism

6 damage DNA, lipids, proteinsHighly reactive oxygen species formed in the body can damage DNA, lipids, proteins ROS implicated in cancer, heart disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative disorders, and aging, etc. neutralize ROSCan natural constituents of coffee neutralize ROS and their adverse consequences? improve endothelial functionDoes coffee improve endothelial function and thereby have protective effects against atherosclerosis and other related diseases? Do antioxidant actions account for some of the health benefits of coffee?Do antioxidant actions account for some of the health benefits of coffee? Antioxidant activity of coffee

7 : Dihydrocaffeic acid (DHCA) inhibits breakdown of endothelial cell vitamin E J. Huang et al. / Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 15 (2004) 722 –729

8 DHCA repairs endothelial dysfunction by its antioxidant effects

9 Inhibits release of several neurotransmitters Increases regional blood perfusion Stabilizes membrane potentials and decreases heart and brain tissue excitability Prevents cellular damage during various tissue insults (e.g., oxidant stress, excitotoxicity) Caffeine is a potent adenosine antagonist Do CGAs in coffee modify the effects of caffeine on the adenosine system?Do CGAs in coffee modify the effects of caffeine on the adenosine system? Adenosine effects of coffee

11 Chlorogenic acid opposes the effects of caffeine on adenosine Adenosine A 2A -receptor Transporter A 1 -receptor Caffeine CGA -

12 Endogenous opioids modulate ‘pleasure’, pain, mood, and ‘drive’ centers in the brain as do opiate drugs, e.g. morphine Opioid antagonists can prevent relapse in alcoholism and other addictions CGA quinides inhibit mu-opioid receptors Can quinides in coffee be used to treat alcoholism or other addictions?Can quinides in coffee be used to treat alcoholism or other addictions? Opioid activity of coffee

14 Chlorogenic acid blocks mu-opioid receptor Endogenous opioid Mu-opioid receptors CGA
