Sunfull Published an Academic Paper: Advances in Physiological Functions and Mechanisms of (-)-epicatechin
In February 2020, the team of Dr. Zhang sheng, general manager of Sunfull, published an article in 《Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition》（IF: 6.704，1 Area）：Advances in Physiological Functions and Mechanisms of (-)-epicatechin
(-)-Epicatechin (EC) is a flavanol easily obtained through the diet and is present in tea, cocoa, vegetables, fruits, and cereals. Recent studies have shown that EC protects human health and exhibits prominent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, enhances muscle performance, improves symptoms of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, prevents diabetes, and protects the nervous system. With the development of modern medical and biotechnology research, the mechanisms of action associated with EC toward various chronic diseases are becoming more apparent, and the pharmacological development and utilization of EC has been increasingly clarified. Currently, there is no comprehensive systematic introduction to the effects of EC and its
mechanisms of action. This review presents the latest research progress and the role of EC in the prevention and treatment of various chronic diseases and its protective health effects and provides a theoretical basis for future research on EC.
