SKIN AND HEALTH BENEFITS OF COFFEE

Coffee is more than a tool to make it until the end of the day, it is a magical bean filled with compounds - such as antioxidants, fatty acids, among others - that are beneficial for your health, skin and well-being.  So, look at it more like a tool to improve your life.

When coffee is brewed to produce coffee water, less than 1% of its components are extracted. The used coffee grounds acontain all the bioactive compounds mentioned above. This is why we extract them, in the form of an oil, to be used for skin health purposes.

Below, find a report on Association of Coffee Drinking with Mortality by Genetic Variation in Caffeine Metabolism.

SKIN AND HAIR BENEFITS

  • Skin firming: Coffee grounds contain caffeine, which boosts blood microcirculation and is anti-inflammatory. Plus, vitamin C, which is crucial for the formation of collagen.

  • Cellulite reduction: Several studies have evidenced that caffeine - more precisely cafestol and kahweol - has lipolytic effects in adipose tissues and therefore has a great potential for cellulite reduction.

  • Eye area care: The around-eye area is delicate and needs ultimate care. The anti-inflammatory power of caffeine helps diminish under eye inflammation, puffiness and redness, making coffee a key ingredient for eye care products.

  • Combat skin aging: Scientific studies have demonstrated the rejuvenating effect of coffee beans. Thanks to their antioxidants and anti-inflammatory action, caffeine and chlorogenic acids effectively protect the skin from UV-induced damages. Coffee oil thus combats the effects of photoaging, like wrinkles and discoloration.  

  • UV protection: Coffee has sunscreen-like properties. Their lipid fraction contains linoleic acid, which has an ultraviolet absorption.

  • Skin redness lowering: Caffeine is a vasoconstrictor, meaning it lowers skin redness. Its antioxidants can even treat irritated skin suffering from rosacea.

  • Fight skin problems: The caffeine contained in coffee beans can help reduce inflammation due to skin problems such as eczema, acne and psoriasis. Additionally, coffee grounds are promising for fighting skin infection diseases given the antimicrobial properties of their chlorogenic acids and caffeine.

  • Stimulate hair growth: Coffee has the potential to stimulate hair growth since its anti-inflammatory properties allow it to soothe inflammation of the hair follicle, which is known to be one of the causes behind premature hair loss. When used in haircare, coffee leaves hair shiny and voluminous.

HEALTH BENEFITS

  • Increased energy levels and improved mental performance: As obvious as it sounds, caffeine increases energy levels by triggering the release of norepinephrine, a chemical that makes you more alert. Some studies have shown that caffeinated coffee consumption improves performance on a variety of tasks. (Smith et al., 1993)

  • Favors fat burning: Caffeine increases the metabolic rate, especially when combined with exercise. It also boosts the release of oxidative free fatty acid in the bloodstream, which in simple terms means it facilitates the conversion of fat to energy.

  • Reduces the risk of type II diabetes: A Danish study has shown that the effects of cafestol and caffeic acid - which are found in caffeinated and in decaffeinated coffee-  are likely to reduce the risk of type II diabetes. Both components increase insulin secretion and cafestol stimulates blood sugar intake in cells, therefore combating diabetes symptoms.   

  • Enhances liver health: Coffee is good for liver health. As confirmed by the World Health Organization, the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds of coffee beans particularly prevent liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.

  • Prevents certain diseases: Several studies have evidenced the link between moderated but long term and regular coffee consumption and lower risks of certain types of cancer (regular consumption), Alzheimer, Dementia, and of cardiovascular diseases.

  • Antidepressant: Some studies have shown that coffee might have a proactive effect in preventing depression. The antidepressant effect of coffee stems from its ability to increase the amount of serotonin and dopamine in the brain, thus counteracting depression symptoms such as low concentration and low mood. Another explanation as to why coffee help fight depression is linked to the acids it contains, which reduce the inflammation of nerve cells associated with depression.  

The good news is, all of these wonderful biologically active components found in your cup of coffee are also present in the spent coffee grounds (SCGs): no wonder why recycled coffee is the star ingredient of our Bueno Naturals cosmetic line!
