Polyphenols are a large group of beneficial compounds occurring naturally in plants. More than 8,000 polyphenols have so far been identified and research indicate that polyphenol consumption may play a vital role in health. Alsiano supplies a line of sustainably produced, premium quality, powerful polyphenols for incorporation in health supplements. The health-promoting benefits of polyphenols include eye health, cognitive health, cardiovascular health, and other health benefits.
Mediterranean plants such as grapes are very rich in the phenolic compounds: proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins and resveratrol. These compounds have antioxidant, anti-free-radical, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial effects, which have many health promoting benefits. The main health benefits of phenolic compounds include eye, cognitive, cardiovascular, and digestive health. In addition, they may support weight management, and are also relevant in sports nutrition formulations.
