Methods

This review looked at evidence over the last 10 years to identify the role that polyphenols play in reducing the risk for chronic diseases. Although the review does not mention peanuts specifically, peanuts are a rich source of polyphenols and contain similar compounds as some fruits and vegetables.

Key Findings

The results showed that total polyphenols, as well as their subclass of flavonoids, have been associated with lower risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and all-cause mortality. At this stage, it is difficult to recommend a particular dosage, but more research should be done to define recommendations.
