Ferulic acid (FA) is a constituent of the seeds and leaves of many plants, particularly in grains. FA concentrations vary widely depending on plant variety and growing conditions. FA is water-soluble and is well absorbed when used as a supplement. Its structural resemblance to curcumin (a poorly absorbed supplement) suggests its possible value as a curcumin substitute.

Studies in humans, animals, and cell culture have provided evidence for the following actions of ferulic acid:

  • inhibition or prevention of cancers of the breast, colon, lung, stomach, and tongue
  • prevention of brain damage by Alzheimer’s proteins
  • inhibiting prostate growth
  • strengthening of bone
  • prevention of diabetes-induced free radical formation
  • expansion of pancreatic islets
  • reduction of elevated lipid, triglyceride, and blood glucose levels
  • lowering cholesterol production, raising of HDL levels
  • prevention of hot flashes
  • prevention of free-radical damage to cell membranes
  • protection of skin from aging effects of UV light
  • stimulation of the immune system
  • stimulation of retinal cell growth in degenerative retinal diseases

Ferulic acid’s value as an athletic performance enhancer is controversial, two studies support it, one does not.
