Did you know that polyphenols are a type of plant-based antioxidant? They have been shown to have many health benefits, such as reducing the risk of cancer and heart disease. Polyphenols are most commonly found in fruits, vegetables, red wine, green tea, cocoa powder and dark chocolate. In this blog post we will explore a ranking of foods high in polyphenols!
According to published research:
As can be seen, Aronia (listed as Black chokeberry) ranks the highest among berries! Even though there are spices such as cloves and Mexican oregano which have a high polyphenol content, it would not be practical or even possible to eat these in quantities to get the health benefits. For example, you would have to eat about 100 cloves or teaspoons of oregano each day!
It is certainly doable to incorporate Aronia berry into your daily routine. To find out how, check us out at tyrianindustries.com.
