Polyphenols are compounds that are found in plant-based foods. Filled with antioxidants, polyphenols can help lower oxidative stress which results in inflammation.
Additionally, they can improve gut health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and some cancers.
However, research on polyphenols is limited, but a new study is helping researchers understand the impact these substances have on inflammation. And surprisingly they find simply adding milk to your coffee may help you combat inflammation.
