Apple's Amazing Polyphenols

In the past five years, no area of apple research has been more dynamic than the area of apple polyphenols. The balance of these phytonutrients in apples is far more unique than many researchers previously suspected.

 

In terms of flavonols, quercetin is the primary phytonutrient found in apples, and it's far more concentrated in the skin than in the pulp. Kaempferol and myricetin are also important apple flavonols.

 

Chlorogenic acid is apple's primary phenolic acid, and it's found throughout the pulp and also in the skin. Chlorogenic acid is a metabolism boosting compound also found in the popular new green coffee bean extracts. It help supress appetite and stimulate weight loss.

Unwinding Nature's Clocks

Unwinding Nature's Clocks | Longevity science | Scoop.it

Scientists at Duke will share a $14 million grant from DARPA to study biological clocks.

 

If scientists can isolate the genes, molecules and signals of human biological clocks, they could find ways to control and repair them if they are broken or damaged. A new DARPA grant will bring together many leading experts on the cell cycle, the circadian clock, the metabolism of yeast, root growth in plants and pulsing processes in bacteria, to deconstruct the molecular and genetic rhythms that keep these organisms alive. These scientists have four years to investigate the diverse rhythms of life.
