What are polyphenols and where are they found

Polyphenols are compounds with two or more phenolic groups in the molecule. Sometimes it was believed that the largest amounts of polyphenols can be found in dark fruits such as blueberries, blackberries, elderberries and black currant. However, recent studies of wood composition have shown that the highest concentration of polyphenolic compounds is present in branches and knots.

Low molecular weight polyphenols, namely flavonoids, lignans and phenolic acids, are the most common polyphenols present in specific tissues of the fir tree.

Silver fir branches are the richest source of polyphenols

What is the main function of polyphenols

Polyphenols, which may also be called “plant vitamins”, are produced and accumulated in silver fir branches for decades. Polyphenols are of particular interest because, due to their remarkable antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, they represent a protection of wood against the attack of microorganisms and insects and at the same time, they protect tissues against many degenerative processes, radiation and damage caused by free radicals.

Polyphenols also represent valuable dietary supplement

Polyphenols found in silver fir branches are highly bioactive compounds with beneficial effects on the human organism. Scientific studies have shown that polyphenols act synergistically since they are extremely powerful antioxidants, they strengthen the immune system, have anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic activity, inhibit degenerative changes of cells and lower the glycemic index of food.

The healing gifts of nature were collected in pristine form by high-tech methods. We are protecting forests while accepting their millennial wealth.
