Overview

Are soy isoflavones neuroprotective? Just how different is one species of Echinacea from another? Which phytochemicals will be effective as therapeutic agents in vivo? Supported by solid scientific research, Phytochemicals in Nutrition and Health helps provide answers to these and other probing questions concerning the mechanisms of action associated with beneficial phytochemical groups. It examines new areas such as the efficacy and safety of medicinal herbs, the use of biotechnology to manipulate and enhance the phytochemical profiles of various plants, and the pharmacokinetics of phytochemicals in humans.

The editors also expand discussion presented in their previous books on phytochemicals. They explore new research on phytochemicals in the Vaccinium family (cranberries, blueberries and bilberries), wine, and oilseeds, and the biological activity of Echinacea in humans. Additional chapters present new information about isothiocyanates, lycopene, carotenoids other than beta-carotene, tocotrienols, and phytoestrogens. Highlighting phytochemicals that have significant potential for promoting health or preventing disease, Phytochemicals in Nutrition and Health expands discussions of appropriate research methodologies and new technologies in this exciting field.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Meskin (dietetics, California State Polytechnic U., Pomona) cautions that, while herbal medicinal products rank among the most popular nutrition-related products, there is still little scientific or regulatory basis for consumers' assumption that they are safe and effective. A dozen papers based on the Third International Phytochemical Conference (2000) further evidence-based discussions of the role of phytochemicals in promoting health, and methodological approaches and new technologies for studying such. Since gold standard data are rarely available for the effects, e.g., of , wine polyphenols, and soy phytoestrogens, one researcher suggests a meta-analysis of existing studies as a starting point for deciding which plant-based chemicals warrant further research. Natural medicine advocates may object to enhancing the healing potential of plants via bioengineering. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
