Modulating Effects of Dicaffeoylquinic Acids from Ilex kudingcha on Intestinal Microecology in Vitro.


Dietary polyphenols have been considered as novel prebiotics, and polyphenols could exert their functions through modulating intestinal microbiota. The diverse bioactivities of kudingcha could derive from its phenolic compounds, but the effects of dicaffeoylquinic acids (diCQAs) from Ilex kudingcha on intestinal microbiota have not been investigated. In the… (More)
