🍎 They’ve been linked to multiple health benefits including lowering blood sugar levels, decreasing risk of heart disease, reducing blood clots, and boosting digestion and brain function.
🍎 Some foods rich in polyphenols include: blueberries, elderberries, blackberries, apples, cloves, peppermint, chestnuts and most other nuts, flaxseed, artichokes, olives, coffee, and tea.
