Phenol compounds in the skin of coffee beans can alleviate inflammation and counteract diabetes

A new study published in Food and Chemical Toxicology shows that the treatment of fat cells in rats with extracts from the peel of coffee beans reduces cellular inflammation caused by fat and generally improves absorption of fatty acids, glucose and insulin sensitivity. Essentially, in prolonged inflammation associated with obesity macrophages, cells for the body’s […]

Proteins discovered that protect against cerebral hemorrhage and nerve damage

A team of researchers at the University of Zurich discovered that a specific protein called haptoglobin is essential to prevent brain damage caused by free hemoglobin after cerebral hemorrhage. This damage is caused by red blood cells, which can cause serious damage to neurons and thus the brain. In particular, researchers were interested in bleeding […]
