We would like to convey it to you from the pen of Gastroenterology Associate Professor Murat Kantarcıoğlu.
“Until now, it was always mentioned in the literature about the incredible benefits of filter coffee, that those who drink filter coffee do not have Alzheimer's disease, do not suffer from cirrhosis of the liver. But it was not discovered which compound in coffee was responsible for this effect. We made this discovery. For the first time in the world, we have seen exosome-like tiny cargo packages of coffee. We found 15 new microRNA strands carried within them. We didn't stop. We went further. We have also shown that they suppress the reproduction of liver cancer cells. In fact, everything is hidden in nature. They are just waiting to be discovered. We have hope for a new cure for cancer and Alzheimer's." We congratulate them on the Discovery of 13 Turkish Scientists about Coffee.
We also share the brief foreword and purpose of the articles with you.
Regular coffee consumption has beneficial and preventive effects on liver and chronic neurodegenerative diseases.
However, studies with ingredients found in coffee drinks have not elucidated the responsible mechanisms. Exosomes are small, membrane-covered cargo packages secreted by prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Exosomes regulate intercellular communication and influence cellular metabolic activities even among different species.
In this study, we aimed to isolate and characterize edible plant-derived exosomes.
Plant-derived exosome-like nanoparticles from roasted hot coffee drinks showed that edible plant-derived exosome-like nanoparticles are responsible for the beneficial effects of coffee.
