Polyphenols are the unique chemicals which give plant foods their color, and they provide numerous health benefits.

However, some foods are much higher in polyphenols than others.

This article will explain precisely what these compounds do, where we can find them, and their health-protective properties.

But primarily, we'll take an in-depth look at the 100 richest food sources of dietary polyphenols.


Clinical studies and randomized trials link polyphenols to a whole host of positive health benefits.

For instance, here are some findings on polyphenol intake from randomized, controlled trials:

  • Increasing dietary polyphenol intake in participants "significantly improves" cardiovascular risk markers, improves lipid markers, and helps to prevent LDL oxidation.
  • Polyphenols appear to slow, delay, or potentially help to reverse prostate cancer.
  • Polyphenols have neuroprotective effects that may help to slow, delay, or prevent Alzheimer's and other mental health conditions .
  • Additionally, polyphenols appear to play a beneficial role in decreasing blood pressure and markers of inflammation.
