Plant-derived dietary polyphenols may improve some disease states and promote health. Experimental evidence suggests that this is partially attributable to changes in gene expression. The rational use of bioactive food components may therefore present an opportunity to activate or repress selected gene expression pathways and, consequently, to manage or prevent disease. It remains to be determined whether this use of bioactive food components can be done safely. This article reviews the… 
Molecular promiscuity of plant polyphenols in the management of age-related diseases: far beyond their antioxidant properties.
TLDR
This chapter discusses the most likely targets of polyphenols that may account for their salutary effects from a global perspective and suggests that the modulation of signalling and energy-sensitive pathways, oxidative stress and inflammation-related processes, mitochondrial functionality, epigenetic machinery, histone acetylation and membrane-dependent processes play central roles in polyphenol mechanisms of action.
Multi-Targeted Molecular Effects of Hibiscus sabdariffa Polyphenols: An Opportunity for a Global Approach to Obesity
TLDR
A global approach including integrated and networked omics techniques, virtual screening and epigenetic analysis is necessary to fully understand the molecular mechanisms of HS polyphenols and metabolites involved, as well as their possible implications in the design of safe and effective polyphenolic formulations for obesity.
Benefits of Dietary Polyphenols and Polyphenol-Rich Additives to Aquatic Animal Health: An Overview
TLDR
A large number of studies have investigated the phytochemical properties of polyphenols and their applications in food and animal health, and they have shown potential for both biological and health benefits.
The Bioavailability, Transport, and Bioactivity of Dietary Flavonoids: A Review from a Historical Perspective.
TLDR
This review traces the development of the field over the past 8 decades, and indicates the current state of the art, and how it was reached.
The Role of Dietary Phenolic Compounds in Epigenetic Modulation Involved in Inflammatory Processes
A better understanding of the interactions between dietary phenolic compounds and the epigenetics of inflammation may impact pathological conditions and their treatment. Phenolic compounds are
Phytochemicals enriched in spices: a source of natural epigenetic therapy
TLDR
The epigenetic regulatory roles of phytochemicals present in condiments and spices with considerable health benefits are highlighted, with a focus on evaluating the potential of phyllochemicals to regulate/neutralize various epigenetic modifications.
MicroRNAs as molecular targets of quercetin and its derivatives underlying their biological effects: A preclinical strategy
TLDR
This article reviews the studies into the molecular pathways underlying the beneficial bioactivities of quercetin and its derivatives, and the modulatory effects of miRNAs by quercETin andIts derivatives on miRN as well as the roles of mi RNAs in overall nutritional control.
Managing hypertension by polyphenols.
TLDR
Whether and how limitations of scientific knowledge, data derived from large randomized clinical trials, and an accurate assessment of the bioactive components provided by common foodstuff may complicate the extensive use of plant-derived products in the management of hypertension are discussed.
Metabolic and Epigenetics Action Mechanisms of Antiobesity Medicinal Plants and Phytochemicals
TLDR
The state-of-the-art knowledge about antiobesity medicinal plants and their active compounds and their effects on several cellular, molecular, and metabolic pathways simultaneously with multiple phytochemicals through synergistic functioning are discussed, suggesting an appropriate approach to better management of obesity.
The acute impact of polyphenols from Hibiscus sabdariffa in metabolic homeostasis: an approach combining metabolomics and gene-expression analyses.
TLDR
The data support the view that polyphenols from Hibiscus sabdariffa play a regulatory role in metabolic health and in the maintenance of blood pressure, thus implying a multi-faceted impact in metabolic and cardiovascular diseases.

Regulation of gene transcription by botanicals: novel regulatory mechanisms.
TLDR
Novel mechanisms by which botanical products regulate cell function via gene transcription are focused on, including the discovery that hyperforin is an active ingredient of the herbal remedy St. John's wort, and activates gene transcription of cytochrome p450-3A4, causing significant botanical-drug interactions.
Xenohormetic and anti-aging activity of secoiridoid polyphenols present in extra virgin olive oil
TLDR
EVOO secoiridoids constitute a new family of plant-produced gerosuppressant agents that molecularly “repair” the aimless (and harmful) AMPK/mTOR-driven quasi-program that leads to aging and aging-related diseases, including cancer.

Improving the oral bioavailability of beneficial polyphenols through designed synergies
TLDR
This hypothesis and review paper will discuss some of the endogenous systems that limit the bioavailability of ingested polyphenols to the body and the brain, and the means by which bioavailability may be improved by specifically designing synergies between orally consumedpolyphenols.

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.

TLDR
The future use of prebiotics may allow species-level changes in the microbiota, an extrapolation into genera other than the bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, and allow preferential use in disease-prone areas of the body.
