Phytochemicals also include indoles, lignans, phytoestrogens, stanols, saponins, terpenes, flavonoids, carotenoids, anthocyanidins, phenolic acids, and many more.

    Select a phytochemical from the list for more information. The information on dietary phytochemicals from the Linus Pauling Institute's Micronutrient Information Center is now available in a book titled, An Evidence-based Approach to Phytochemicals and Other Dietary Factors. Phytochemicals in Citrus: Applications in Functional Foods focuses on up-to-date information on chemical properties of citrus fruits, citrus food products, and their health benefits. The 16 chapters in the book provide a knowledge base on the chemical composition, bioactive components, biochemical properties, food use, and health benefits of.

      The first book in this two-volume set explores the diversity of algal constituents for health and disease applications. The commercial value of chemicals of value to food and health is about $6 billion annually, of which 30 percent relates to micro and macro algal metabolites and products for health food applications.   Dried Fruits: Phytochemicals and Health Effects is divided into three sections preceded by introductory chapters that provide an overview of dried fruits (their composition, phytochemicals and health applications) as well as the cancer chemopreventive effects of selected dried fruits (amla fruits or Indian gooseberries, avocados, berries.

Naturally present bioactive compounds in plants are referred to as "Phytochemicals" and are being studied extensively for their role in human health. Studies have shown that they can have an important role to play in the prevention and management of several human diseases.

Recognizing the increasing interest in this area, this book is being published in response to the need for more current Author: Venketeshwer Rao, Dennis Mans, Leticia Rao.

The book begins with a discussion of major research that has contributed to the widespread interest in phytochemicals and health promotion. This is followed by an exploration of the beneficial effects of polyphenols in healthy aging and against a host of illnesses and disorders, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, inflammation, and ulcers.

Plant based diets are often linked with improved health outcomes. Whilst the mechanism for protection is not fully understood, it has been hypothesised that the phytochemicals contained in plants may benefit consumer health.

Phytochemicals are found in all plants and are key in protecting the plant from environmental stressors. Pramod Kumar, in The Role of Functional Food Security in Global Health, Diet and Nutrition’s Impact at the Molecular Level.

The phytochemicals impart a plant with color, aroma, and flavor and a protection from infection and predators. The phytochemicals may stimulate the immune system, slow the growth rate of cancer cells, and prevent DNA damage that can lead to cancer and.
