WHAT ARE POLYPHENOLS?

Many of BooYah!’s products are made from ingredients containing or high in polyphenols.

In a nutshell, anything that makes your mouth pucker generally contains polyphenols.

These micronutrients are evident in a variety of plant-based foods and are generally packed with antioxidants and potential health benefits.  Research is demonstrating that polyphenols improve or help treat digestion issues, weight management difficulties, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular diseases.

The best means of putting polyphenols into your system is by eating foods containing them.  Supplements are also available, but any side effects, particularly interference with or limitation of iron absorption, are more common by way of supplements.

Cloves and a wide range of other herbs and seasonings are very rich in polyphenols.  BooYah! Pays close attention to this in their flavor development.

Berries also have a tendency to be high in polyphenols.  Please to say that BooYah!’s berry shrubs and sipping vinegars rank among our customers’ favorites!

Certain non-berry fruits are also high in polyphenols including but not limited to plums, cherries, apples and pomegranate.

In summary, polyphenols are powerful micronutrients needed by our bodies. Their numerous health benefits may offer protection from the development of cancers, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes. As with just about anything, best to consume hrough foods naturally containing them.

Drink to your health and enjoy!
