RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Researchers from the Federal University of Paraíba (UFPB) found that organic coffee husk is efficient as a raw material for extracts rich in bioactive compounds with high antioxidant potential.
The antioxidant potential is essential to protect the body's healthy cells against the oxidizing action of free radicals, molecules released by the body's metabolism with highly unstable and reactive electrons that can cause degenerative diseases of aging and cell death.
In addition to providing scientific support for the development of extracts rich in natural antioxidants from organic coffee husk, the UFPB research . . .
