Abstract

This article, part 2 of the series on polyphenols, examines some of the evidence for the roles of specific foods rich in polyphenols in reducing the risk of 3 common health conditions: urinary tract infections, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes. Although the research remains emerging rather than settled science, polyphenols may have beneficial health effects. Those who follow the recommended eating patterns of the Dietary Guidelines 2015-2020 can be sure that they are receiving plenty of these plant bioactives.
