Aronia berry polyphenols for chronic disease prevention

Polyphenols Applications speaker bollingDuring the Polyphenols Applications 2020 congress,  Prof. Bradley Bolling from University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of Food Science, USA will give a presentation entitled "Aronia berry polyphenols for chronic disease prevention".

Summary of talk: The aronia berry is rich in anthocyanins, hydroxycinnamic acids, and proanthocyanidins. Animal models and some human intervention studies indicate aronia polyphenols reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. The preventive mechanisms appear to be partly mediated by the gut microbiota and intestinal immune system.
