Phytochemicals are health-protecting compounds of plant origin. They provide flavor and color to the edible, fruits, plants, herbs and beverages. Health protecting effects of phytochemicals are due to antiinflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, anticarcinogenic, and cellular repair properties.
There has been considerable interest in defining biological activities of phytochemicals at the molecular level. The effects of phytochemicals can be conducive, additive, synergistic, and antagonistic. Through these properties, phytochemicals modulate cellular differentiation, proliferation, oxidative stress, inflammation and apoptosis. This book presents an integrated view on molecular mechanisms of beneficial effects of phytochemical action in acute and chronic human diseases.
