Coffee pulp could make you well again
Researchers in Australia have found a staggering new use for the husks and castaway pieces of a coffee bean that previously were simply thrown away. Imagine if that use could actually save lives too.
The pulp that surrounds the cherry in the centre of the bean has long been simply discarded but now medical researchers have found that by applying this by-product of the coffee manufacturing process to a wound that the wound itself heals significantly quicker than if it the pulp had not been applied at all.
Coffee beans are known to contain a wide variety of health giving ingredients including riboflavin, pantothenic acid, manganese, potassium, magnesium and niacin, but this latest discovery proves there are yet more uses to which the simple coffee bean can be put.
While medical researchers are claiming this new development, many across Asia are pointing out that the coffee bean pulp has been used in this many for generations and that medical researchers are simply rediscovering ancient Asian remedies and cures.
