Health benefits of dietary polyphenols

I am currently the principal investigator of the HARVEST study.

The HARVEST study is investigating the impact of bespoke recipes consumed daily using a dietary app on blood iron levels. Additionally, the study examines how eating salad greens grown in a hydroponic unit and biofortified with vitamin B12 will affect blood vitamin B12 levels in women of childbearing age who follow a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle.
