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?
- Chemistry, MedicineFree radical research
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.

Flavonoid glucosides are hydrolyzed and thus activated in the oral cavity in humans.
- BiologyThe Journal of nutrition
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.
