Plant-Polyphenols-Metabolism-Matters
AUGUST 24TH, 2022
Plant Polyphenols: Metabolism Matters*

FREE Webinar
Plant polyphenols such as curcumin, anthocyanidins, hesperidin, isoflavones, to name a few, generate predictable biological effects despite their poor bioavailability. Much of what we know about plant medicine derives from the vast body of in-vitro data. However, polyphenols are heavily metabolized upon ingestion. These metabolites can carry potent biological activity and may explain the apparent paradoxical relationship of low bioavailability and high bioactivity of plant polyphenols. This webinar will review the metabolism of plant polyphenols and in so doing challenge current conceptions of dosing and toxicity.*

This webinar is for healthcare professionals and students only.

Ecologically Harvested is a term that describes all herbs sold by Gaia Herbs that are not Certified Organic. Ecologically Harvested herbs include herbs that are harvested in their natural habitat, (i.e., wild harvested) according to specific guidelines for harvesting these herbs (i.e., away from roads and industry, as well as guidelines to avoid overharvesting). Our term, Ecologically Harvested, also includes herbs that are grown in managed woodland areas, fields designated for specific herbs, and herbs that are grown by indigenous growers, such as Kava Kava. All Ecologically Harvested herbs pass pesticide and heavy metal testing as well as microbial testing, prior to release.
