Polyphenols are a group of naturally occurring compounds that are found in many plant-based foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and tea. They are known for their antioxidant properties and have been studied for their potential health benefits.

Polyphenols are believed to work by scavenging harmful molecules called free radicals, which can damage cells and contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. In addition to their antioxidant properties, polyphenols have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-diabetic effects, among others.

While polyphenols are abundant in many plant-based foods (see below a list of foods rich in polyphenols) it is not necessary to take them in supplement form. A healthy diet that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and tea can provide adequate amounts of polyphenols. In fact, some studies have suggested that the health benefits of polyphenols may be due to their interactions with other nutrients and compounds found in whole foods.

That being said, some people may take polyphenol supplements for various reasons, such as supporting cardiovascular health, reducing inflammation, or improving athletic performance. If you are considering taking a polyphenol supplement, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional first, as some supplements may interact with medications or have side effects.

It is important to understand that polyphenol is not a single ingredient. On the Genmag website, you can explore a variety of specialty ingredients that naturally contain high concentrations of polyphenols.
