Polyphenols are natural plant colors that protect botanicals from the sun’s rays and from pathogens like fungi, bacteria and roundworms. Polyphenols are a large class of phenolic organic compounds that can be grouped into tannins, lignins, phenolic acidand flavonoids. One of the most well-knowngroups is oligomeric proanthocyanidins, or OPCs.
Often, but not always, these protective colorants are found in the skin, rind or bark of various botanicals. Studies looking at polyphenolic compounds or extracts, that are either consumed as part of the diet or consumed via nutritional supplementation, have shown that a number of health benefits may be conferred to humans by these colorful natural chemicals, part of which comes from their antioxidant defenses.
