Abstract

Chemoprotective potential of naturally occuring phytochemicals in food is a major area of scientific interest. Results acquired from epidemiologic studies suggest a reduced risk of degenerative diseases with high phytochemical consumption. Bioavailability of phytochemicals is a critical issue, though their significant absorption has been demonstrated. Phytochemicals possess an array of biochemical and pharmacological qualities like antioxidative, anticarcinogenic, antimicrobial, cholesterol-lowering and antithrombotic activities.
