This study looked at the potential of plant compounds (polyphenols found in nuts, fruits, and vegetables) to impact bone health.

Key Findings

Key Findings: Authors found that these plant polyphenols from the diet can bind to hydroxyapatite in bone, which is the main compound that is essential to bone building and strength. Authors conclude that this finding raises questions and insight into the potential of polyphenols to impact bone formation and health.
