Traditional medicinal plants have a long history of therapeutic use. The beneficial health effects of medicinal plants rich in polyphenols are often attributed to their potent antioxidant activities, as established in vitro, since diets rich in polyphenols are epidemiologically associated with a decreased incidence of age-related diseases in humans.
