Abstract

The diverse actions of polyphenols on human metabolism are only beginning to be understood. Although the actual cellular targets of polyphenols remain speculative, there is growing appreciation of their actions on gene expression, gut health, and control of mitochondrial quality and function. This paper reviews some of these newer potential targets of polyphenols, and outlines the levels of polyphenols required to activate such potential targets.
