Date and time:
19:35 to 20:00 on 11/10/2021
Polyphenols are abundant in fruits, vegetables and some teas, such as green tea and red wine. The main characteristic of polyphenols is their antioxidant capacity. Polyphenols can promote several biological effects, such as influencing neuronal survival and regeneration, inhibition of carcinogenesis and inhibition of inflammatory processes. Due to this chemical protective effect, consumption of polyphenols in the diet or as a nutraceutical is a promising approach to the problems that affect the brain, carcinogenesis, stomach and kidney.
