(NaturalNews) Coffee is currently in the crosshairs of a lot of scientists as they have come to realize that coffee, particularly coffee grounds, contains a lot of antioxidants that could be harnessed and placed into supplements. It is estimated that about 20 million tons of coffee grounds are used in a year as millions of people consume many cups of coffee daily. This beverage is said to be very rich in nutrients and even after coffee grounds have been used, they retain a big amount of the nutrients found in coffee. This is why scientists, as reported in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, are trying to come up with a machine that could help them use coffee grounds in supplements.

Benefits of coffee consumption

There have been studies that showed that moderate coffee drinking actually has a lot of benefits. In the past, a lot of medical experts say that coffee drinking actually increases a person's chances of suffering from diabetes, ulcers, or any other ailment. One study that was published back in April 2012 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition confirmed that moderate coffee drinking may actually help reduce a person's risk of developing Diabetes Mellitus TypeII. The more cups a person drinks over time, the more the body is able to fight the onset of this illness.

Other benefits of coffee consumption include decreasing the risk of suffering from Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, liver and kidney cancer, heart rhythm problems, and a lot more.

Coffee grounds should not be wasted

Coffee grounds contain a lot of antioxidants even when they have been used already. This is why a lot of gardeners have stocks on hand because they have seen how their gardens flourish when they have coffee grounds in their soil. It is not surprising that scientists are finding ways for these grounds not to be sent to the garbage bin, but instead, turned into something more beneficial for the body.

Coffee grounds are currently used as mulch, fertilizer, and a lot of other things. If the soil could make use of its goodness, scientists are saying that people could also make use of them. It is not surprising if in the coming years, there are already supplements that make use of the nutrients that are derived from the grounds. There are even chances that people could already get the health benefits from coffee even without having to drink coffee.

Coffee grounds other benefits

Coffee grounds have other uses too. They make great body scrubs, especially when mixed with olive oil and brown sugar. People see that their skin becomes a lot healthier and gives off a natural glow. The hair, if it needs a little boost, could also benefit from a coffee ground scrub.
