A new therapeutic use of coffee has just been discovered through a new American study, which may be good news for cardiovascular and diabetic patients.
Work just published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology has found a “panacea” that has the ability to reduce inflammation, reduce insulin resistance in the husk and silk skin of coffee beans, which are considered waste products of coffee beans. coffee processing industry.
Professor Elvira Gonzalez de Mejia from the University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (USA), one of the lead authors, said two miraculous compounds they found in the pods of coffee beans. are protocatechuic acid and gallic acid.
This ability to reduce inflammation, improve glucose handling and insulin sensitivity could pave the way for treatments for a range of diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and certain cardiovascular diseases.
Because it is a completely natural thing, derived from food, this “panacea” is not toxic. Moreover, they are also powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants have long been known as a good medicine for longevity, preventing aging and many diseases.
These effects have been demonstrated by experiments on 2 cells, macrophages (immune response cells and adipocytes); As well as testing on the production and metabolism of fat cells in the body, the inflammatory response mechanism, etc. The analysis steps also show that these “panacea” have the potential for sustainable effects through improved improvement. the body’s natural abilities.
According to the authors, this study also helps… protect the environment. In fact, the coffee industry has released about 1.16 million tons of coffee husks around the world, contributing to pollution. They are discarded in the fields, fermenting and becoming a breeding ground for harmful molds. In addition, about 43,000 tons of coffee silk husks follow the beans during export, but are also left to waste when roasting.
