The benefits of plant polyphenols are well known to health enthusiasts. These natural plant constituents block oxidative damage that leads to inflammation and accelerated ageing process. Recent studies by three separate laboratories have concluded that polyphenols extracted from apples extend life-span by up to 12%.
Apples, especially their peel, are rich in an array of polyphenols. One particular major compound found in the skin of many apple species, phloridzin, has been shown to act as a powerful agent against destructive processes in your body, such as glycation. This compound also facilitates communication between cells and supports healthy glucose levels in individuals with levels within normal range.
Additional research has shown that apple polyphenols can increase the protective endogenous antioxidant, paraoxonase, thereby inhibiting lipid peroxidation and inflammation. Apples contain further compounds that support healthy glucose metabolism and and slow the absorption of dietary fat from the intestines. AppleWise Polyphenol Extract is extracted from the highest quality organically grown apples.
