Book Description :

Functional foods and nutraceuticals, dietary supplements, and natural antioxidants have established their potential roles in the protection of human health against disease. Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods in Human Health and Disease Prevention examines the benefits, efficacy, and success of properly designed nutraceuticals and functional foods in human health and their possible application in disease prevention. The book demonstrates diverse disease pathophysiology and how nutraceuticals and functional food can be used to combat and prevent disease. The book discusses global food habits and trends, safety and toxicology, and how food addiction or overindulgence of food can lead to a variety of disease states. It then highlights how supplements help in disease prevention. Although a significant number of nutraceuticals and functional foods have demonstrated their efficacy, a large number of supplements are still surviving on false claims. Therefore, the editors underscore risks and benefits, and why government regulatory agencies are so critical of these nutraceutical supplements. With the global nutraceuticals market expected to reach $204.8 billion by 2017, what once seemed a very niche sector has become big business. An overview of nutraceuticals and functional foods and their application in human health, this book exhaustively covers antioxidants, functional foods, and nutraceuticals in human health and disease prevention. With contributions from experts and pioneers, the book gives insight into the role of functional foods in optimal diet and exercise.

Book Description :

Long used in sacred ceremonies and associated with good health, the nutritional and health promoting benefits of olives and olive oils have been proven by an ever-increasing body of science. From cardiovascular benefits to anti-microbial, anti-cancer, antioxidant activity and effects on macrophages and aptoptosis to cellular and pathophysiollogical process, olives and olive oils are proving important in many healthful ways. For example, reactive components in olive oils or olive oil by-products have now been isolated and identified. These include tyrosol, hydroxytyrosol, 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl acetic acid elenolic acid and oleuropein. Oleic acid is the main monosaturated fatty acid of olive oil. These have putative protective effects and modulate the biochemistry of a variety of cell types including those of the vascular system. Some but not all components have been characterised by their putative pharmacological properties. It is possible that usage of these aforementioned products may have beneficial application in other disease. However, in order for this cross-fertilization to take place, a comprehensive understanding of olives and olive oils is required. Finding this knowledge in a single volume provides a key resource for scientists in a variety of food an nutritional roles. Key Features: * Explores olives and olive oil from their general aspects to the detailed level of important micro-and micronutrients * Includes coverage of various methodologies for analysis to help scientists and chemists determine the most appropriate option for their own studies, including those of olive-related compounds in other foods * Relates, in a single volume resource, information for food and nutritional chemists, pharmaceutical scientists, nutritionists and dieticians * Presents information in three key categories: General aspects of olives an olive oils; Nutritional, pharmacological and metabolic properties of olives and olive oil; Specific components of olive oil and their effects on tissue and body systems

Book Description :

This Special Issue presents high-quality research papers as well as review articles addressing recent advances in the use of marine bioactives in animal nutrition. The marine environment constitutes a relatively untapped source of biologically active compounds that can be applied in various areas, such as improvement of animal performance, health maintenance, and disease prevention. Numerous marine-based compounds isolated from marine organisms (especially seaweeds) have diverse biological activities, including antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral activities that can be beneficial to animal health. Additionally, the application of marine bioactives as feed additives can increase the nutritional value of products of animal origin. In this Special Issue, the main attention was focused on seaweeds and their application in poultry (laying hen and broiler chickens) and pig feed. The suitable processing of marine resources required for their optimal use as feed/feed additives was underlined. The contained publications present scientific evidence for the use of various seaweeds as feed additives that improve health (enhanced immunity, prebiotic effect), growth performance, and production. Inclusion of this unconventional material in animal nutrition can enrich products with active compounds, such as micro- and macroelements, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and pigments which are beneficial for consumers.

Book Description :

During the 1950s, with the Cold War looming, military planners sought to know more about how to keep fighting forces fit and capable in the harsh Alaskan environment. In 1956 and 1957, the U.S. Air Force's former Arctic Aeromedical Laboratory conducted a study of the role of the thyroid in human acclimatization to cold. To measure thyroid function under various conditions, the researchers administered a radioactive medical trace, Iodine-131, to Alaska Natives and white military personnel; based on the study results, the researchers determined that the thyroid did not play a significant role in human acclimatization to cold. When this study of thyroid function was revisited at a 1993 conference on the Cold War legacy in the Arctic, serious questions were raised about the appropriateness of the activity--whether it posed risks to the people involved and whether the research had been conducted within the bounds of accepted guidelines for research using human participants. In particular, there was concern over the relatively large proportion of Alaska Natives used as subjects and whether they understood the nature of the study. This book evaluates the research in detail, looking at both the possible health effects of Iodine-131 administration in humans and the ethics of human subjects research. This book presents conclusions and recommendations and is a significant addition to the nation's current reevaluation of human radiation experiments conducted during the Cold War.

Book Description :

Food proteins and bioactive peptides play a vital role in thegrowth and development of the body’s structural integrity andregulation, as well as having a variety of other functionalproperties. Land animal-derived food proteins such as collagen andgelatine carry risks of contamination (such as BSE). Marine-derivedproteins, which can provide equivalents to collagen and gelatinwithout the associated risks, are becoming more popular amongconsumers because of their numerous health beneficial effects. Mostmarine-derived bioactive peptides are currently underutilized.While fish and shellfish are perhaps the most obvious sources ofsuch proteins and peptides, there is also the potential for furtherdevelopment of proteins and peptides from sources like algae, seacucumber and molluscs. Marine-derived proteins and peptides alsohave potential uses in novel products, with the possibility of widecommercialization in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical andcosmetic industries, as well as in other fields such asphotography, textiles, leather, electronics, medicine andbiotechnology. Marine Proteins and Peptides: Biological Activities andApplications presents an overview of the current status,future industrial perspectives and commercial trends of bioactivemarine-derived proteins and peptides. Many of the industrialperspectives are drawn from the food industry, but the book alsorefers to the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. There haverecently been significant advances in isolating functionalingredients from marine bio-resources and seafood by-products foruse in these industries, but little has been published, creating aknowledge gap, particularly with regard to the isolation andpurification processes. This book is the first to fill thatgap. Marine Proteins and Peptides: Biological Activities andApplications is a valuable resource for researchers inmarine biochemistry field as well as food industry managersinterested in exploring novel techniques and knowledge onalternative food protein sources. It will become a standardreference book for researchers involved in developing marinebio-resources and seafood by-products for novel nutraceutical,cosmetics, and pharmaceutical applications. It will also appeal tomanagers and product developers in the food, pharmaceutical andcosmetics industries, particularly those looking to usemarine-derived proteins and peptides as substitutes or replacementsfor unfashionable or outdated food components.

Book Description :

A delicious way to better nutrition. Seaside societies have included seaweed in their diets for millennia. Today we are rediscovering what they have long known: seaweed provides a nutritional punch, a powerful mix of iodine, iron, vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, vitamin K, vitamin B12; minerals, fiber and protein. It is linked to lower rates of cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and obesity and it is believed to help in the prevention and treatment of cancer. The Seaweed Cookbook covers all aspects of seaweed. It is for those who would like to incorporate this powerful food into their diet and it is for those who already enjoy it and want to discover new recipes. The book explains the benefits of eating seaweed, where to buy it, how to collect it (if you're lucky enough to live seaside), and how to dry, store, soak and handle it as an ingredient. Most importantly, there are 50 easy and delicious recipes. There are many kinds of seaweed used in the recipes, each with its own taste profile, uses and benefits: Arame - mild, almost sweet, the best introduction to sea vegetables Nori - the common sushi wrapper, great toasted Kombu - an aromatic base for a broth, used in miso soup and other Japanese dishes Wakame - related to kombu, believed to have fat burning properties that could fight obesity Hijiki - for natural beauty, its deep black color can be off-putting for some people Dulse - a snack seaweed packed with protein and iron, often used as a salt Agar - used as a thickener in sweet and savory dishes, with mild laxative properties Kelp - packed with vitamins, minerals and iodine; useful for a number of health issues Alaria - light green and almost transparent Sea palm - wavy fronds are mild, almost nutty-tasting. The Seaweed Cookbook includes recipes for appetizers, main and side dishes, baking, such as scones and shortbread, an amazing granola and as a chocolate flavoring. A little seaweed goes a long way, so it is perfect as a seasoning, whether in salt or infused in oils and dressings, and mixed with seeds. There are savory broths, salads and stews and because it is so good for our skin, there are recipes for body scrubs, seaweed soaks and masks.
