Polyphenols and Lactobacillus reuteri in oral health

Plant-derived molecules and probiotics have shown a significant potential in treating and curing oral diseases, either alone or in combination, owing to their antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, respectively.

Preventive Applications of Polyphenols in Dentistry—A Review

The current research confirms that polyphenols can reduce the growth of cariogenic bacteria and decrease the adherence of bacteria to the tooth surface and improve the erosion-protective properties of the acquired enamel pellicle.

Polyphenols in Metabolic Diseases

The bioprotective properties and associated underlying mechanisms of PPs are explored to open up new opportunities for producing unique natural PP-rich dietary and medicinal plans, ultimately affirming their health benefits.

Phytochemical Screening, Antioxidant and Gastro-Protective Activity Studies on the Fruit Peels of Selected Varieties of Banana

Background and Aim: Gastric ulcer is a chronic health condition of the gastrointestinal tract with increasing incidence and prevalence affecting both male and female population globally. There were a

Polyphenols and their benefits: A review

A comprehensive review of studies on PCs with a focus on HDs seeks to find out why some PCs have received such considerable attention all over the world and shows that three countries most involved in research on PCs are USA, China, and India, and found that quercetin, catechin, and kaempferol are the three most studied PCs.

Phenolic Compounds Present in Yerba Mate Potentially Increase Human Health: A Critical Review

This review aimed to gather and assess the available information about how PC from YM may impact host metabolism and the immune system and GM.

Role of free radicals and common antioxidants in oral health, an update.

A greater consumption of fruits and vegetables should be encouraged as they are the natural sources of these chemopreventive antioxidant along with other protective factors packaged by nature.



Plant polyphenols in cancer and heart disease: implications as nutritional antioxidants

Until more is known about their bioavailability, metabolism and intracellular location, increasing intakes of polyphenols by supplements or food fortification may be unwise.

The gastrointestinal tract: A major site of antioxidant action?

The argument is developed that the high levels of antioxidants present in certain foods (fruits, vegetables, grains) and beverages (e.g. green tea) play an important role in protecting the gastrointestinal tract itself from oxidative damage, and in delaying the development of stomach, colon and rectal cancer.

Inhibition of carcinogenesis by dietary polyphenolic compounds.

This chapter reviews the inhibition of tumorigenesis by phenolic acids and derivatives, tea and catechins, isoflavones and soy preparations, quercetin and other flavonoids, resveratrol, and lignans as well as the mechanisms involved based on studies in vivo and in vitro.

Polyphenols: food sources and bioavailability.

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.

Total antioxidant capacity of plant foods, beverages and oils consumed in Italy assessed by three different in vitro assays.

A variety of foods commonly consumed in Italy, including 34 vegetables, 30 fruits, 34 beverages and 6 vegetable oils, were analyzed using three different assays, i.e., Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity (TEAC), total radical-trapping antioxidant parameter (TRAP) and ferric reducing-antioxidant power (FRAP).

The effects of tea and green tea catechins on biomarker of oxidative stress, especially oxidative DNA damage, appear very promising in animal models, but data on biomarkers of in vivo oxidative stress in humans are limited.

Polyphenols and disease risk in epidemiologic studies.

Plant polyphenols, a large group of natural antioxidants, are serious candidates in explanations of the protective effects of vegetables and fruits against cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

Flavonoid glucosides are hydrolyzed and thus activated in the oral cavity in humans.

The contention that salivary hydrolysis of certain flavonoid glucosides may be important in some individuals but not in others is supported, and the large interindividual variability in this hydrolytic activity may be a factor that should be taken into consideration in future studies.
