Purpose of review Polyphenols are the most abundant dietary antioxidants and research on their role in the prevention of degenerative diseases has developed quickly over these last few years. This paper reviews the recent studies on the prevention of cardiovascular diseases by polyphenols, focusing on human studies. Recent findings A large number of recent intervention studies have shown that several biomarkers of cardiovascular risk are influenced by the consumption of polyphenol-rich foods… Expand
Health Effects of Foods Rich in Polyphenols
TLDR
Results from human intervention studies do show reduction in oxidative stress, markers of inflammation, serum triglycerides and low-density lipoproteincholesterol when the diets were supplemented with fruits or fruit extracts rich in polyphenols. Expand
Influence of Bioactive Nutrients on the Atherosclerotic Process: A Review
TLDR
The accumulation of evidence on the anti-inflammatory effects related to nutrients such as Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, hydroxytyrosol of extra virgin olive oil, lycopen, phytosterols of plants, or flavonols of fruits and vegetables is summarized in the present review. Expand
Physiological relevance of food antioxidants.
Dietary antioxidants are associated with prevention of oxidative stress related chronic diseases including certain types of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases.Expand
Towards functional effects of polyphenols : modulation of energy metabolism revealed
TLDR
Modulation of energy metabolism by polyphenols is identified as an important process involved in mediating the possible health effects associated with dietary polyphenol intake, and there is no scientific justification for supplementing the diet with large amounts of poly phenols. Expand
Effects of Total Polyphenol Intakes on Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors in an Elderly Population at High Cardiovascular Risk
There is a consensus that CVD has been the leading cause of death worldwide in recent decades, and it is predicted that will raise from 17.5 million in 2012 to 22.2 million in 2030. Besides, CVD is aExpand
Tea flavonoids and cardiovascular disease.
  • J. Hodgson

  • Asia Pacific journal of clinical nutrition
  • 2008
TLDR
There is now consistent data to suggest that tea and tea flavonoids can improve endothelial function, and reduce blood pressure, oxidative damage, blood cholesterol concentrations, inflammation and risk of thrombosis. Expand
Polyphenol Consumption and Blood Pressure
TLDR
It is described how the vasoprotective effect of dietary polyphenols has been related to their ability to increase endothelial synthesis of nitric oxide and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor-mediated responses. Expand
Natural Polyphenols: Potential for Disease Prevention
Natural plant remedies have been used for thousands of years to offer prevention, relief and cure for all types of illnesses, and people in the ancient times believed that good and sufficient foodExpand
Polyphenolic phytochemicals – just antioxidants or much more?
TLDR
This work summarises the current knowledge of the intake, bio-availability and metabolism of polyphenolics, their antioxidant effects, regulatory effects on signalling pathways, neuro-protective effects and Regulatory effects on energy metabolism and gut health. Expand
Consumption of cocoa, tea and coffee and risk of cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Daily intake of an anti-thrombotic diet may offer a suitable and effective way of coronary artery disease (CAD) prevention and the blood pressure lowering effects and the anti-inflammatory activity of dark chocolate suggests its use as potential prophylactic and therapeutic agent. Expand

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.Expand
Dietary Polyphenols and the Prevention of Diseases
TLDR
Experimental studies on animals or cultured human cell lines support a role of polyphenols in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, cancers, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, or osteoporosis, but no clear associations have been found between cancer risk and polyphenol consumption. Expand
Bioavailability and bioefficacy of polyphenols in humans. II. Review of 93 intervention studies.
TLDR
It is time to rethink the design of in vitro and in vivo studies, so that these issues are carefully considered, and the length of human intervention studies should be increased, to more closely reflect the long-term dietary consumption of polyphenols. Expand
Molecular mechanisms by which dietary isoflavones potentially prevent atherosclerosis.
TLDR
Suggested mechanisms of action include a reduction in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and a potential reduction in the susceptibility of the LDL particle to oxidation, which are consistent with the epidemiological evidence that a high consumption of isoflavone-rich soy products is associated with a reduced incidence of coronary artery disease. Expand
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. Expand
Bioavailability and bioefficacy of polyphenols in humans. I. Review of 97 bioavailability studies.
TLDR
Gallic acid and isoflavones are the most well-absorbed polyphenols, followed by catechins, flavanones, and quercetin glucosides, but with different kinetics, and the least well- absorption polyphenol are the proanthocyanidins, the galloylated tea catech ins, andThe anthocyanins. Expand
Cocoa products decrease low density lipoprotein oxidative susceptibility but do not affect biomarkers of inflammation in humans.
TLDR
It is concluded that cocoa products supplementation in humans affects LDL oxidizability, but not urinary F(2) isoprostanes or markers of inflammation, and there was no effect of chocolate on urinary F (2) wasoprostane levels or on markers ofinflammation. Expand
Consumption of foods rich in flavonoids is related to a decreased cardiovascular risk in apparently healthy French women.
TLDR
The results indicate that in women, a high consumption of flavonoid-rich foods may prevent cardiovascular disease. Expand
Effects of differing phenolic content in dietary olive oils on lipids and LDL oxidation
TLDR
The hypothesis that virgin olive oil consumption could provide benefits in the prevention of oxidative processes is supported, as dose-dependent changes in oxidative stress markers, and phenolic compounds in urine, were observed with the phenolic content of the olive oil administered. Expand
Red wine polyphenolic compounds inhibit atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E-deficient mice independently of effects on lipid peroxidation.
TLDR
The results suggest that lipid deposition is independent of lipid oxidation and that the protective action of red wine polyphenols isindependent of any antioxidant action of these compounds. Expand
