Apple Polyphenols and diabetes
In a study conducted on rats, Apple Polyphenols increased the sensitivity of insulin, which has shown to be one of the main benefits for diabetes patients. *
One of the most well-known properties of polyphenols in relation to carbohydrate metabolism is the inhibition of α-glycosidase and α-amylase, the key enzymes responsible for digestion of dietary carbohydrates into glucose. *
Apple polyphenols slow down digestion of carbohydrates and reduce glucose absorption, to stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin. *
Apple Polyphenols and hair loss
