Polyphenols and flavonoids are commonly known secondary metabolites from plants and have been in use since long due to wide therapeutic benefits. Dietary polyphenols are a primary source of antioxidants and are derived from plants including fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs. Owing to their health benefits, substantiated by research evidences and scientific claims; the development and usage of plant based dietary supplements has increased significantly.
However, there is also considerable evidence being accumulated that indicates that these compounds can cause adverse effects at high concentrations. It is therefore essential to ensure that these are maintained within the defined limits. At VIMTA, we offer a comprehensive range of test solutions for chemical and biochemical testing of natural ingredients including polyphenols and flavonoids in raw material and finished products.
