A collection of current knowledge of phytochemicals andhealth
Interest in phenolic phytochemicals has increased as scientificstudies indicate these compounds exhibit potential health benefits.With contributions from world leaders in this research area,Plant Phenolics and Human Health: Biochemistry, Nutrition, andPharmacology offers an essential survey of the currentknowledge on the capacity of specific micronutrients present inordinary diets to fight disease.

The coverage in this resource:
* Explains the presence and biochemical properties of phenolicspresent in fruits and vegetables, as well as in foods derived fromtheir plant sources
* Provides biochemical explanations on how certain plant phenolicsfight cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, andother widespread pathologies
* Focuses on certain phenolics, e.g., flavonoids, stilbenes, andcurcuminoids, and provides insights on the biochemical bases usedto define their significance in the diet as well as theirrecommended consumption requirements and toxicity

Appropriate for graduate and upper-level undergraduate coursesin human and animal nutrition, basic nutritional biology,physiology, pharmacology, and other health-related disciplines,Plant Phenolics and Human Health: Biochemistry, Nutrition, andPharmacology serves as both an invaluable supplementaryclassroom text and a self-teaching guide for professionalsinterested in defining the association between diet and health fromclassical, alternative, and complementary biomedicalperspectives.
