To this end, a 21-day homogenization period was carried out with th...
Plant-polyphenols have shown the capacity to ameliorate obesity-induced metabolic disturbances, both in cell and animal models, where most therapeutic approaches have failed. On the basis of previous research, a dietary supplement containing 500mg of a combination of polyphenolic extracts from Lippia citriodora L. and Hibiscus sabdarifa L. (LC-HS),...
Correction for ‘Hibiscus and lemon verbena polyphenols modulate appetite-related biomarkers in overweight subjects: a randomized controlled trial’ by Marina Boix-Castejón et al. , Food Funct. , 2018, 9 , 3173–3184.
