Do Farmers Markets Have Polyphenols
Science is constantly evolving and with it, new discoveries. Most people are aware of the word antioxidants, but do you know what antioxidants really are? To be more specific, do you know the role polyphenols play as antioxidants in our gut microbiome, immune system for the prevention of many illnesses including: cardiovascular disease, diabetes, some forms of cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases? Polyphenols are so much more than an antioxidant. Polyphenols are phytochemical compounds that plants produce to defend themselves from UV rays, pests and anything else that might harm them. It is also what gives them their color and to some of them, their bitter flavor.
