Over 8,000 polyphenols have been identified in tea, wine, chocolates, fruits, vegetables, olive oil, and others. The health effects of polyphenols depend on the amount consumed and their bioavailability. Polyphenols have diverse health benefits including prevention of cancer, inhibition of angiogenesis, protection of skin against ultraviolet radiations, antiaging property, promotion of brain health, maintenance of blood sugar level, and protection of the cardiovascular system. Moreover, many skin care products or cosmeceuticals have been developed with polyphenol-enriched plant extracts. Polyphenols also help in prevention of UV-induced skin photo-damage, which includes the risk of skin cancer.
