Research on flavanols and procyanidins provides new insights into how these phytonutrients may positively impact human health
Date:3/6/2012

ns. In addition, the data of this study do not rule out the possibility that procyanidins may exert biological activities in the digestive system that may be beneficial for human health.

Dr. Schroeter further commented on the implications of these findings, "The differences between the absorption and metabolism of flavanols and procyanidins, as demonstrated by this research, may prompt changes in how scientists design and interpret epidemiological investigations and in vitro studies to more meaningfully reflect what happens in the body. Furthermore, the fact that our results mean that it is unlikely that procyanidins exert direct effects on blood vessel function, may lead researchers to focus specifically on studying the mechanisms by which flavanols and perhaps even gamma-valerolactones affect cardiovascular function."

The research has been published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and is available online here: http://www.ajcn.org/content/early/2012/02/28/ajcn.111.028340.abstract. It was part-funded by the European Commission under the FLAVIOLA project and forms part of a wider body of work examining the health benefits of diets rich in flavanols and procyanidins.
