Health professionals are recognizing the role of nutraceuticals in health enhancement, however, there is much confusion and misinformation about these products and the science behind them. Dictionary of Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods is the first reference of its kind for this rapidly developing field. It provides clearly written, concise, science-based information on approximately 150 nutraceutical and functional food products and compounds. Each entry lists the most current information on the product or compound and its role in the promotion of health or the prevention of disease, as well as peer-reviewed literature references. Chemical structures are provided for more than 100 compounds, and numerous tables present additional data.
