Polyphenols

Powerful, plant-derived, bioactive compounds found naturally in fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices..These micronutrients are what give the plants their beautiful, bright colors. Those vivid purples, reds, and greens seen in blueberries, raspberries, pomegranates, and green matcha are signs that those foods are rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols have both antioxidant and prebiotic-like effects, meaning they help to promote your skin’s health and overall radiance through the gut-skin connection. There are 5 main classes of polyphenols: flavonoids, stilbenes, tannins, lignans and phenolic acids

Bowe Growe’s polyphenol blend is made up of pomegranate, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, cranberry, and concord grape.

“The gut and skin are intimately connected. When our gut microbiome is out of balance, our intestinal barrier starts to become permeable. Inflammatory molecules that should not enter our bloodstream are able to penetrate, triggering system-wide inflammation. This can show up in our skin as dryness, breakouts, sensitive skin, and recurring skin issues. When our gut microbiome is balanced, our gut lining is healthy and intact, so a balanced gut microbiome supports healthy skin from the inside out.”

- Dr. Whitney Bowe Beauty, Board-Certified Dermatologist, Scientist, Founder
