Short Description

This book provides an oversight of the fundamentals and the developments of nutraceuticals and natural products. It addresses the different types of synthesis and extraction methods, various characterization techniques, and clinical validation of different categories of these products. Their uses in preventive medicine, supplementary nutrition, drug discovery and drug delivery as well as the role of nanotechnology in administering these applications have been discussed with emphasis. Pharmaceutical alternatives based on carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, herbals, flavonoids, phytochemicals, marine sources, GMOs, and Non-GMOs are other topics of major discussion. To a large extent, the focus of the book is on the nanomaterial and nanochemical aspects these products. This book is an essential read for those who produce nutraceuticals and natural products and those who seek to incorporate different technologies and mechanisms in the developments of food/beauty/medicinal products.

An essential treatment of nutraceuticals and natural products, their preparation techniques, and applications

In Handbook of Nutraceuticals and Natural Products: From Concepts to Application, a team of distinguished researchers delivers a one-stop resource describing the preparation techniques and functional uses of nutraceuticals and natural products with a focus on the technologies involved. The book includes coverage of the biological, medicinal, and nutritional properties and applications of functional foods, as well as the advanced technologies used in the extraction and functionalization of nano components and the nanomaterial and nanochemical aspects of the products.

The authors discuss developmental research as well as user-level benefits of nutraceuticals and natural products and thoroughly review the market analyses, quality assurance processes, and regulations relevant to nutraceuticals and natural products. They also cover:
* Thorough introductions to nutraceuticals, functional foods, liposomal technology, prebiotics, and lycopene and its active drug delivery
* Comprehensive explorations of nutraceutical compounds from marine microalgae and poly lysine as an antimicrobial agent
* Practical discussions of a nutraceuticals approach to treating cancer-cachexia and early life nutrition and epigenetics
* In-depth examinations of encapsulation and delivery of nutraceuticals and bioactive compounds by nanoliposomes and tocosomes as promising nanocarriers

Perfect for chemists, biochemists, food scientists, and materials scientists, Nutraceuticals and Natural Products: From Concepts to Application will also earn a place in the libraries of medical scientists working in academia or industry, as well as nutritionists, dietitians, and biochemistry graduate students studying nutraceuticals.
