    - #Whole-plant virgin sugarcane fibre is shown to ferment at a uniform rate and results in significant SCFA levels via microbial synthesis. - Supplementation of complex whole-plant sugarcane fibre alone and in combination with probiotic bacteria has been confirmed to impart anti-inflammatory effects on colonic tissues in mice models of IBD through production of SCFAs along the entire colon length and significantly reduce the colitis-associated diseases symptoms in-vivo and influence microbial diversity in the proximal and distal regions of the colon resulting in attenuation of gut inflammation. - The whole-plant sugarcane fibre has been previously demonstrated to impart positive effects on human gut microbiota in-vitro, particularly influencing the abundance of members of family #Bifidobacteriaceae. - Compared with the other dietary fibre supplements tested (wheat dextrin and psyllium husk), the whole plant sugarcane fibre shows the highest availability of polyphenols and antioxidant potential. - Addition of polyphenol extracts and polyphenol rich foods increase the abundance of #Bifidobacteriaceae.
  • [1.2
    - Besides vitamins and minerals, polyphenols found in thousands of plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, herbs, and cacao, promote a greater abundance of beneficial bacteria, and some polyphenols also exert prebiotic activity. - Gut bacteria also increase the bioavailability of the beneficial polyphenols so they can exert their health benefits.
  • [1.3] [#Cancer

  • - Only 5–10% of the total polyphenol intake are absorbed in the small intestine! Most, 90–95% of the total, are transported to the human large intestine. - Dietary polyphenol can modulate the gut microbial composition, and, at the same time, gut microbiota also improve the bioavailability of polyphenols by converting them to "more compatible" molecules for our body
  • [1.14] [#Sport
  • [1.15] [#Catechins
    - #Grape seed polyphenol extract (GSPE) is a rich source of flavan-3-ols including catechin, epicatechin, and #Anthocyanins which were shown to produce a variety of bioavailable #Phenolic acids both in the plasma and brain.
  • - Apigenin and diosmetin, both #Grape-derived polyphenols, potently and dose-dependently inhibited AGE-induced #Nitric Oxide and TNFα release
  • - There are three major catabolic mechanisms elicited by the gut microbiota to produce bioactive #Phenolic acids frpm polyphenols: hydrolysis (O-deglycosylations and ester hydrolysis), cleavage (C-ring cleavage, delactonization, demethylation) and reduction (dehydroxylation and double bond reduction)
  • - dietary polyphenols act as prebiotics enhancing the growth of specific beneficial bacterial species that elicit health benefits - autochthonous gut microbiota can increase the production of bioactive phenolic acids derived from dietary polyphenols increasing their beneficial biological activity.
  • - Only 5–10% of dietary polyphenols are absorbed in the small intestine where they subsequently undergo phase I biotransformation (i.e., oxidation) in the endothelial cells and phase II biotransformation (i.e., conjugation) in hepatocytes liberating water-soluble conjugate metabolites.
