Apple Polyphenols supports the proverb that "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". It is a completely safe product, with no known side-effects, suitable for all health-conscious individuals concerned about their weight or metabolism.
Plant polyphenols are showing particular promise as anti-aging nutrients. In three recent studies, polyphenols from apples extended lifespan in laboratory models by up to 12%. It seems the polyphenols activate genes which stimulate both endogenous antioxidant defences and inhibition of other genes involved in premature death. Epidemiological research confirms a positive correlation between consumption of flavonoids in general, and of apples in particular, and longevity.
Phloridzin is one such polyphenol which is concentrated in apple peel. It is one of the chalcone flavonoids, which reduces insulin resistance and is effective at countering glycation via a number of synergistic mechanisms. Apples are similarly rich in chlorogenic acid (a key active in our green coffee extract too), catechin, epicatechin and various tannins. Apple polyphenols are also potent antioxidants with an ORAC value three times that of green tea extract.
Many studies demonstrate the wide-ranging applications and polyvalence of apple polyphenols. They act as:
In research conducted on 45 overweight adults, daily supplementation with 600mg of apple polyphenols produced weight loss after 12 weeks, essentially in the form of reduced visceral fat, while in a different study, supplemented subjects lost 8.9% of their visceral fat in 16 weeks. A third study is underway to evaluate the effects of apple polyphenols on satiety and calorie absorption.

Inflammation is a mechanism used by the body to respond to harmful stimuli. But when that response is excessive, the body suffers. Here, in 10 points, are the essential facts.
A research team has just found a way of reversing this loss of ability using a compound that promotes the growth of new blood vessels : NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide).
