Modulation of brain electrical activity as a mechanism that turns diet into a neuromodulator to treat degenerative pathologies
A study carried out in the Cajal Institute reveals how the consumption of polyphenols in the diet can be associated with a lower incidence of chronic-degenerative diseases. Polyphenols comprise several groups of compounds found naturally in plant-based foods and beverages, and are transformed by the gut microbiota into more bioavailable compounds.
