It’s common knowledge, really - a diet rich in plant-based foods is just plain good for you. Between the vitamins & minerals, the fiber, and even the flavor; fruits & veggies have been a common-sense component in a balanced diet since forever. But the real magic hidden in the plants we eat are the naturally-occuring, organic chemical compounds called polyphenols. Beyond daily nutrition, polyphenols offer a truly incredible array of health benefits: from neutralizing harmful free radicals to managing blood sugar...and more!
A healthy gut and a robust immune system are a perfect pair - polyphenols ensure both run smoothly. By activating good bacteria (bifidobacteria) growth and limiting harmful bacteria in your gut, polyphenols make it easier for your immune system to fight off infection and disease. Not only do polyphenols boost your immunity, they make digestion easier by managing the total gut microbiome.
A number of different polyphenols have been shown to contribute to keeping our hearts healthy. By fighting off accumulated free radicals in the bloodstream, these polyphenols manage blood pressure and keep the circulatory system flexible and resilient. Additionally, the antioxidant properties of polyphenols reduce chronic inflammation - a massive risk for heart disease. And it keeps getting better: by lowering LDL (the bad) cholesterol levels and increasing HDL (the good) cholesterol levels, polyphenols provide even further benefits to heart health.
Polyphenols have also been linked to lowering the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and even cancer. Researchers have observed that the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of polyphenols are capable of blocking cancer growth. Polyphenols are also effective at lowering blood sugar by stimulating the release of insulin in the body. Seriously, polyphenols are the total package!
