- Polyphenols activate genes which stimulate endogenous antioxidant defenses.
- May help to reduce insulin resistance and counter glycation.
- Has antioxidant power that helps to fight free radicals.
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, that provides several antioxidant benefits. It is also suitable for all health-conscious individuals concerned about their weight or metabolism. A complete supplement made with a natural apple extract, now available to buy at Supersmart.
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 defenses 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.
