In the present study, we have shown that plums protected granulocyte cells from oxidative stress by their potential to inhibit the intracellular reactive oxygen species accumulation. The consumption of 100 g of fresh plums can provide antioxidants equivalent to 613.98-2137.59 mg of vitamin C. The major polyphenols in plums were identified and quantified using reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), which revealed that neochlorogenic acid was the predominant polyphenol. Plums are a source of polyphenols with dual effects: antioxidant and anxiolytic, like chlorogenic acid, which may provide health-promoting advantages to the consumer.
