Polyphenols are a structural class of natural and synthetic organic chemicals which contain phenol units. Numerous epidemiological, preclinical and clinical studies have strongly supported their benefical effects for human health. Polyphenols group include molecules of utterly different complexity grades, ranging from simple molecules to highly polymerized structures. They are classified into: Phenolic acids, Flavonoids, Lignans and the less common Stilbenes. This work first intends to review… CONTINUE READING
