Gundry MD and Dr. Steven Gundry Invite You to Celebrate National Polyphenol Day With a Polyphenol-Rich Olive Oil Shot!

The Second Annual National Polyphenol Day from Gundry MD Takes Place on July 11, 2022

LOS ANGELES, July 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Gundry MDTM announces the second annual "National Polyphenol Day," in honor of founder Dr. Steven Gundry's birthday on July 11th, 2022.

The holiday was created by Gundry MD in 2021 to facilitate awareness and education about the incredible benefits of polyphenols. Dietary polyphenols are rich in foods like extra virgin olive oil, tea, black coffee, wine, dark chocolate, chicory, hazelnuts, dark berries, and many spices and herbs. Some benefits of a polyphenol-rich diet may include feeling younger, supported mental clarity, healthy weight and heart health support.

As a famous cardiothoracic surgeon, a pioneer in nutrition, and a four-time New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Steven Gundry highly recommends incorporating these powerful micronutrients into your diet. "I've spent the last 20+ years researching the powers of polyphenols in promoting perfect health! And one of the easiest daily ways to get polyphenols into your diet is to use first cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil on everything — including taking a shot a day!" says Dr. Gundry.

Gundry MD encourages celebrating National Polyphenol Day on July 11 by recording a clip of themselves doing a shot of Olive Oil to toast Dr. Gundry’s 72nd birthday. Post it on Instagram or Tik Tok being sure to tag @GundryMD, @DrStevenGundry, and use the hashtags #PolyphenolDay #OliveOilShot.

Already a viral health trend on TikTok, olive oil shots are most beneficial using a polyphenol-rich cold-pressed olive oil like the one available from Gundry MD.
