Seminar Overview

Diets high in polyphenols are associated with numerous health benefits, particularly related to decreased risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes.  Optimizing bioavailability is an important aspect of delivering these health benefits.  However, recent studies have revealed surprising complexities in factors affecting inter-individual variability in polyphenol bioavailability.  Participants will learn about new research to characterize these surprising aspects of polyphenol bioavailability and to identify the mechanisms driving different gastro-intestinal absorptive behavior.
