Summary

This new volume explores the importance of phytochemicals from plants in therapeutics and human health. Its focus is on the extraction of bioactive compounds and their applications in human health. Natural products and their bioactive compounds are increasingly utilized in preventive and therapeutic medication as well as for the production of pharmaceutical supplements and more recently as food additives to increase the functionality of foods.

The first section of the volume describes recent advances in the extraction of bioactive compounds from various sources. It looks at advanced extraction techniques such as enzyme-assisted, microwave-assisted, ultrasound-assisted, pressurized liquid extraction, and supercritical extraction techniques, which are described in detail.

Part 2, on bioactive compounds and health claims, covers the roles of different bioactive compounds and their health-promoting potential for lifestyle diseases. The incorporation of functional food, nutraceuticals, and bioactives in daily diets helps to prevent the progression of chronic disorders.
