The available research indicates that plant polyphenols, in particular those of tea (Camellia sinensis), are potent inhibitors of iron absorption from the GIT, and suggests that in combination with the avoidance of known potentiators of iron uptake (meat, alcohol, fructose and vitamin C) consumption of tea polyphenols may be beneficial in individuals with HH and aid in the management of their condition.
