Innovations in plant science for better health.
Summary "Phytochemicals from Medicinal Plants: Scope, Applications, and Potential Health Claims explores the importance of medicinal plants and their potential benefits for human health. This book looks at bioactive compounds from medicinal plants, the health benefits of bioactive compounds, and the applications of plant-based products in the food and pharmaceutical industries. The first section discusses available sources of bioactive compounds from medicinal plants, biochemistry, structural composition, potential biological activities, and how bioactive molecules are isolated from medicinal plants. The authors examine the applications of bioactive molecules from a health perspective, looking at the pharmacological aspects of medicinal plants, the phytochemical and biological activities of different natural products, and ethnobotany/and medicinal properties, and also present a novel dietary approach for disease management. The book goes on to examine how the plant-based products are used in various sectors of the food and pharmaceutical industries. This book volume helps to shed light on the vast potential of functional foods for human health from different technological aspects. This compendium will be useful for researchers, scientists, academia, and students as well as industry professionals within the food, nutraceutical, and herbal industries."-- Provided by publisher
