Previous studies had associated some flavonoids and polyphenolic
compounds of some plant extract with the ability to prevent cataract.
compounds are known to have many biological activities.
extraction was performed by maceration in methanol-water 80/20 (v/v) at a solid-liquid ratio 1/10 (w/v) with continuous stirring at ambient temperature for 48h followed by filtration with filter papers.
The phenolic and polyphenolic
contents were expressed as mg GAE/g and were found to be 5.14, 5.17 and 5.19, 5.12 in stem and root respectively.
Employing a unique, patented technology, we have harnessed these polyphenolic
compounds in their most natural form with their efficacy 100% intact for the benefit of P80 consumers."
The main polyphenolic
composition of cocoa are catechins, proanthocyanidins, quercetin and phenolic acids such as gallic acid.
Boosted Regression Trees (BRT) analysis was used to examine the relative contribution of each polyphenolic
compound to the antioxidant capacity (DPPH and FRAP).
We demonstrated previously that the anti-inflammatory effect of Chinese propolis, which is mainly originated from poplar trees, is associated with the polyphenolic
constitutions, including flavonoids (like pinocembrin, chrysin, and quercetin) as well as phenolic acids and its esters (like caffeic acid and caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE)) .
A diet high in polyphenolic
acids (or polyphenols, compounds in plants such as fruits, vegetables, nuts and beans) may have a positive impact on blood pressure, according to Italian researchers.
Green and herbal teas are a good source of polyphenolic
compounds such as catechins, which act to increase the activity of pepsin, the digestive enzyme that aids the breakdown of dietary proteins in the stomach.
(9) In a different study that year, resveratrol, the primary active polyphenolic
constituent in red wine, was assessed in terms of topical/transdermal delivery viability, given previously established benefits shown via systemic administration.
FLAVANOIDS: These are polyphenolic
plant compounds that are rich in antioxidant and have antiinflammatory health benefits.
