Humans and plants co-evolved to help each other survive, and polyphenols were integral for nurturing this relationship. Even though they aren’t considered “essential nutrients,” the latest research is starting to suggest otherwise.
Polyphenols help prevent disease by interacting with our DNA and modulating our gut microbiome; they are not just antioxidants as we once thought.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, I talk about what polyphenols do for our gut health and our overall health and how to incorporate eating more of them into your life.
