To a better understanding of the factors most relevantly involved in the variability of the responses to the consumption of flavanol-containing tea, cocoa and apple products on selected biomarkers of cardiometabolic risk, the present meta-analysis explores the influence of various factors that may be implicated in the inter-individual variability in the response to the consumption of these products. Results show consistent and significant modulatory effects of the intake of the flavanol-containing products on BMI, waist circumference and blood lipid levels. In conclusion, this meta-analysis provides the first robust evidence of the effects induced by the consumption of flavanol-containing tea, cocoa and apple products on weight and lipid biomarkers and shows the influence of various factors that can affect their bioefficacy in humans.
