You may have seen our Vibrant Reds polyphenol formula in our supplement store, or you may have even tried the product already. You’ve probably heard of polyphenols before, but do you know what types of food they are found in, or what their benefits are to our bodies? Today we will discuss everything you should know about polyphenols and our Vibrant Reds formula.
What Are Polyphenols?
Polyphenols are organic compounds found naturally in plants. There have been over 8,000 types of polyphenols identified. We can’t discuss them all, but some popular ones you may have heard of include phenolic acids, tannins, lignans, flavonoids, resveratrol, and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Polyphenols are abundant in fruits and vegetables, but also can be found in other plant foods, such as legumes, seeds, and grains. Polyphenols function as powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants can reverse damage to your cells caused by poor diet, the environment, and lifestyle choices. Consuming a diet rich in antioxidants can help prevent many diseases, so increasing your intake of polyphenols is a great way to get the benefits of antioxidants.
The polyphenol blend in our Vibrant Reds formula comes from strawberries, hibiscus, beetroot, raspberries, acai, black currant, blueberries, cranberries, grape seed, mango seed, and pomegranate. So this supplement certainly provides a wide variety of different types of polyphenols in a concentrated form.
Insulin and Diabetes Support
If you have insulin resistance, or have been diagnosed with type II diabetes, assuring you get adequate polyphenols in your diet can be a huge help. Polyphenol-rich diets have been shown to lower fasting blood sugar levels, increase glucose tolerance, and increase insulin sensitivity.
Heart Health and Cardiovascular Benefits
Polyphenols may help prevent blood clots and improve heart health. The antioxidant properties in polyphenols can help reduce chronic inflammation, which is a contributing factor to heart disease. Studies also link polyphenol consumption to lower blood pressure levels and lower levels of LDL cholesterol. So for many reasons, polyphenols can help support heart health and the health of your cardiovascular system.
Immune System Support
Polyphenols can do wonderful things to support your immune system. Studies have shown that, “Different immune cells express multiple types of polyphenol receptors that recognize and allow cellular uptake of polyphenols, which subsequently activate signaling pathways to initiate immune responses.” This means that polyphenols can benefit our immune system in numerous positive ways. So if you are someone who gets sick multiple times per year, consuming extra polyphenols may help strengthen your immune system.
Metabolic and Digestive Support
Our Vibrant Reds formula also contains a metabolic blend including cinnamon bark, green tea, ginger, turmeric, shilajit, bitter melon, and black pepper extract. All of these ingredients have great benefits to your metabolism, and may even help assist in your weight loss efforts. The formula also contains prebiotics and probiotics. Most people are aware of what probiotics do for our gut microbiome, but prebiotics are also important because they help feed our good gut bacteria to help assure their survival.
