The function of Polyphenols are chemical compounds naturally found in many fruits and vegetables and serve to give color to the skin and leaves.

vegetables and fruits that contain lots of polyphenols include coffee, tea, and nuts, while the parts that have high levels of polyphenols found in grapes, apples and citrus fruit peel.

According to scientists, polyphenolic compounds have benefits as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, prevent cancer and prevent the risk of heart disease.

These scientists joined in the Biomarkers and Nutritional & Food metabolomics Research Group at the Universitat de Barcelona, Spain, analyzing research data that has been conducted for 12 years by researchers in Italy involving 807 men and women at the age of 65 years.

Then the researchers analyze the effect of a diet rich in polyphenols through a nutritional biomarkers or Urinary Total Polyphenols (TUP) as a measure of the amount of nutrient intake are eaten.

As a result the researchers found that the overall death rate was reduced by 30% on the participants who did the diet high in polyphenols (> 650 mg per day), compared with participants who have a low intake of polyphenol (< 500 mg per day).

Research strengthen the scientific evidence that shows that people who consume a diet of fruits and vegetables have the risk of lower than a few a chronic disease and death as a whole,” said Raúl Zamora Ros, primary author of the research from the Institute of d'Investigació Biomèdica de Bellvitge (IDIBELL), Barcelona, Spain.

While Professor Cristina Andrés Lacueva, head Biomarkers and Nutritional & Food metabolomics Research Group at the Universitat de Barcelona, and who is responsible in this study explains, "The development and use of nutritional biomarkers allow us to make estimates more precise and more objective in order to determine the value nutrient intake from food, "said Lacueva, as quoted by Science Daily, some time ago.
