Phytonutrients and Neurological Disorders PDF Summary

Phytonutrients, which are abundant in various vegetables and fruits, are increasingly used in modern medicine. Phytonutrients are formed through metabolic processes within plants. A versatile chemical template is the key to understanding the healing power of these agents. Plants and plant derived compounds have shown massive potential in the treatment of neurological disorders. Nevertheless, plants involve complex mixtures of phyto-components with various effects, their 'natural' origin is no guarantee of safety. Gaining a comprehensive understanding of the latest research and development is therefore essential. Phytonutrients and Neurological Disorders provides and assesses the latest research and development on the use of phytonutrients for the treatment of neurological disorders. The volume analyzes advances in phytonutrient isolation, characterization, and therapeutic applications, and gives particular emphasis to mechanisms and safety profiles. The book takes toxicological considerations into account, including adverse drug reactions, toxicokinetics, and toxicodynamics. Three sections cover: bioactive compound classes and biosynthesis pathways; general considerations including quality control, standardization, and technology; and toxicology. This title is a comprehensive work on the latest research in phytonutrients and neurological disorders, useful to researchers and medical practitioners. It will also prove a useful resource for readers interested in the characterization and standardization of phytonutrients. Presents a comprehensive resource on phytonutrients in relation neurological disorders Analyzes the isolation, characterization, and mechanisms of phytonutrients in neurology Focuses on the various signalling pathways followed by phytonutrients in neuroprotection Gives the latest thinking on the quality control parameters and specifications for phytonutrient study Considers the toxicology of phytonutrients including adverse drug reactions, toxicokinetics, and toxicodynamics
