Growing evidence from animal studies supports the anti-diabetic properties of some dietary polyphenols, suggesting that dietary polyphenols could be one dietary therapy for the prevention and management of Type 2 diabetes. This review aims to address the potential mechanisms of action of dietary polyphenols in the regulation of glucose homeostasis and insulin sensitivity based on in vitro and in vivo studies, and to provide a comprehensive overview of the anti-diabetic effects of commonly…

Dietary Polyphenols, Mediterranean Diet, Prediabetes, and Type 2 Diabetes: A Narrative Review of the Evidence
TLDR
The intake of polyphenols may be beneficial for both insulin resistance and T2D risk, with a focus on polyphenol-rich foods characteristic of the Mediterranean diet.
Plant polyphenols mechanisms of action on insulin resistance and against the loss of pancreatic beta cells
TLDR
Dietary polyphenols could be used as potential anti-diabetic agents to prevent and alleviate diabetes and its complications, but further studies are needed.
Effects of Cocoa Antioxidants in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
An update of the most relevant reports published during the last decade in cell culture, animal models and human studies support an anti-diabetic effect of cocoa flavonoids by enhancing insulin secretion, improving insulin sensitivity in peripheral tissues, exerting a lipid-lowering effect and preventing the oxidative and inflammatory damages associated to the disease.
A Mixture of Pure, Isolated Polyphenols Worsens the Insulin Resistance and Induces Kidney and Liver Fibrosis Markers in Diet-Induced Obese Mice
TLDR
It is concluded that the administration of pure polyphenols as a food supplement would not be advisable and the ingestion of complete “whole” foods would be the best way to get the health effects of bioactive compounds such as polyphenol.
Benefits of Nut Consumption on Insulin Resistance and Cardiovascular Risk Factors: Multiple Potential Mechanisms of Actions
TLDR
Nuts contain compounds that favourably influence glucose homeostasis, weight control and vascular health.
Anthocyanins as Antidiabetic Agents—In Vitro and In Silico Approaches of Preventive and Therapeutic Effects
TLDR
Therapeutic strategies to counteract metabolic alterations related to hyperglycemia and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) may include: inhibition of carbohydrate-metabolizing enzymes, reduction of glucose transporters expression or activity, inhibition of glycogenolysis and modulation of gut microbiota by anthocyanin breakdown products.
Activation of AMPK by Medicinal Plants and Natural Products: Its Role in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
TLDR
Phenolics such as flavonoids and resveratrol, alkaloids such as berberine, and some saponins are potential natural activators of AMPK with a potential future as antidiabetic drugs.
Grape Polyphenols’ Effects in Human Cardiovascular Diseases and Diabetes

Dietary polyphenols and type 2 diabetes: current insights and future perspectives.
TLDR
The benefits of dietary polyphenols for type 2 diabetes can be summarized as: protection of pancreatic β-cells against glucose toxicity, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, inhibition of α-amylases or α- glucosidases and thus decrease of starch digestion, and inhibition of advanced glycation end products formation.
Impact of Dietary Polyphenols on Carbohydrate Metabolism
TLDR
To confirm the implications of polyphenol consumption for prevention of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and eventually type 2 diabetes, human trials with well-defined diets, controlled study designs and clinically relevant end-points together with holistic approaches e.g., systems biology profiling technologies are needed.
Novel insights of dietary polyphenols and obesity.
Epigallocatechin gallate supplementation alleviates diabetes in rodents.
TLDR
It is shown that EGCG beneficially modifies glucose and lipid metabolism in H4IIE cells and markedly enhances glucose tolerance in diabetic rodents and could potentially contribute to nutritional strategies for the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

TLDR
A lifetime intake of dietary polyphenols, assuming the same mechanism, has a comparable potential to reduce diabetes risk, but more in vivo studies are required to fully test the effect of modulating post-prandial blood glucose in humans.
Health benefits of traditional corn, beans, and pumpkin: in vitro studies for hyperglycemia and hypertension management.
TLDR
In this study antidiabetic- and antihypertension-relevant potentials of phenolic phytochemicals were confirmed in select important traditional plant foods of indigenous communities using in vitro enzyme assays for -glucosidase, alpha-amylase, and angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory activities.
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.

Differential effect of polyphenol-rich dark chocolate on biomarkers of glucose metabolism and cardiovascular risk factors in healthy, overweight and obese subjects: a randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Evidence is provided for the metabolic benefits of consuming polyphenol-rich dark chocolate while demonstrating the possibility of adverse effects occurring with poly phenol-poor chocolate placebo and the effect of polyphenolin-rich DC on biomarkers of glucose metabolism, lipid profile, and blood pressure.
