Polyphenol Supplement May Reduce Inflammation Related To Oral Contraceptives

Research suggests that oral contraceptives may be linked with higher levels of inflammation. A recent study suggests that taking a polyphenol supplement may help combat increases in pro-inflammatory markers in women using combined hormonal contraceptives.


Participants in the study included 40 women between the ages of 25 and 35 who were using contraceptives. The women were given either a 3,000 mg supplement containing resveratrol, catchin, quercetin, chlorogenic acid, and cyanidin or a placebo daily for 15 days. Twenty-eight of the women completed the study.


At the conclusion of the study, the researchers noted significant increases in markers of inflammation and oxidative stress in the placebo group, but no increases were seen in the supplement group.


Researchers from the Institute of Cardiology in Brazil conducted the study. It was published online ahead of print on April 5, 2017, in PLEFA.


Polyphenol intake has been linked with a variety of health benefits, including helping with weight management and reducing inflammation. Polyphenols can be found naturally in many foods, including honey, a variety of fruits and vegetables, red wine, chocolate, tea, certain oils and many types of grain.
