Polyphenois - "What the?"
All the foods you eat have a significant effect on the long-term heath of your body and your moods. Polyphenols are an antioxidant from plant based foods. The amazing Extra Virgin Olive Oil that Cairnmuir produce contains a rich level of antioxidants, which are like warriors in your body that go around eliminating the free radicals come to do you harm via toxins. Toxins are things such as chemicals you may be exposed to through inorganic products, or pollution in the air you breathe, or UV rays from the sun, to name just a few. The body has a natural elimination system for toxins, of course, but in this day and age we need all the help we can get - so bring on the antioxidants to do their thing!
In a nutshell, polyphenols benefit your cardiovascular system. They have anti inflammatory and anti carcinogenic properties while providing protection against memory problems. They also also keep you looking younger through improved appearance in your skin. Over time, eating polyphenols will naturally improve skin tone and elasticity.
Lastly, with the winter months quickly approaching, we all like to protect ourselves agains colds, flus and viruses. These polyphenol antioxidants work to stop the virus from attaching to more cells in the body for sinister 'party time'. It's not ghost busters you're gonna call but polyphenols, because they will interfere with the ability of the virus to attach to your cells. This gives your body a better chance to eliminate the virus in a shorter time.
Some food for thought to consider because what we eat really does matter.
