The phenols are tasteless and stable, meaning they cannot be destroyed by high temperature. When we consume these compounds, our organism absorbs them and sends them into certain parts of the body, or it stores them into the liver. Then, they are spreading throughout the bloodstream, thus reducing the inflammations with anti-oxidative activity.

The human organism cannot produce phenols on its own, which means, we need to enter these compounds through the food we consume. The best choice for achieving this is consuming vegetables from the family of cabbages. Doctors recommend us to consume these vegetables, especially broccoli, on every third day.
