Neuroprotection by Natural Polyphenols:

Polyphenols are the most abundant antioxidants in diet and can be found in tea and infusions amongst others.  These compounds are capable of protecting neuronal cells in model systems.  The aim of this review is to show the role of some polyphenols on the molecular mechanism involved in neuroprotection throught different biological processes. The study of the molecular mechanisms involved in neuroprotection and the molecular targets of natural polyphenols are important in the discovery of a valuable tool for new and more advanced therapy in neurodegenerative diseases.
