ABSTRACT Catechins, present in many fruits and vegetables, have many health benefits, but they are prone to degradation. Nano- and micro-particle systems have been used to stabilise catechins when exposed to adverse environments and to improve their bioavailability after ingestion. This review discusses the inherent properties of various catechins, the design of delivery formulations and the properties of catechin-loaded nano- and micro-particles. The protection afforded to catechins during… 
Nano-Strategies for Enhancing the Bioavailability of Tea Polyphenols: Preparation, Applications, and Challenges
TLDR
Nanotechnology, which involves the use of nanoscale substances to improve the properties of substances, provides a solution for enhancing the stability and bioavailability of TPs, and a nano-strategy may be the “key” to break the application barriers of TP.
Catechins within the Biopolymer Matrix—Design Concepts and Bioactivity Prospects
TLDR
The present review objectively outlines, compares and assesses the recent advances related to newly developed design concepts of catechins’ encapsulation into various biopolymer carriers and their release behaviour, with a special emphasis on the specific physiological biofunctionalities of the innovative bioflavonoid/biopolymer delivery systems.
Application of Polyphenol-Loaded Nanoparticles in Food Industry
TLDR
The most recent accomplishments in the usage of polyphenol-loaded nanoparticles in food science were presented and their applications as active ingredients for improving physicochemical and functional properties of food, or as components of active packaging materials, were critically reviewed.

Elastic liposomes as carriers for oral delivery and the brain distribution of (+)-catechin
TLDR
In the experiment on the brain distribution, liposomes with elastic properties showed 2.9- and 2.7-fold higher (+)-catechin accumulations compared with the aqueous solution in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus, respectively.
Polyphenols: food sources and bioavailability.
TLDR
The nature and contents of the various polyphenols present in food sources and the influence of agricultural practices and industrial processes are reviewed, and bioavailability appears to differ greatly between the variousPolyphenols, and the most abundantpolyphenols in the authors' diet are not necessarily those that have the best bioavailability profile.
