- Phytochemicals are plant or fruit
derived chemical compounds. "Phytonutrients" refer to phytochemicals or
compounds that come from edible plants.
- Phytochemicals (pronounced
fight-o-chemicals) comes from the Greek root “phyto” meaning plant.
There are over 900 phytochemicals found in foods, and one serving of a
fruit or vegetable may have as many as 100 different phytochemicals.
- Phytochemicals are non-nutritive
plant chemicals that have protective or disease preventive properties.
There are more than thousand known phytochemicals. It is well-known that
plant produce these chemicals to protect itself .
- The phytochemical analysis of the
extract both by qualitative and thin layer chromatography showed the
presence of phenols, alkaloids, triterpenoids, steroids and carboxylic
- The constituents like triterpenoids
and alkaloids of the noni may play a major role in the process of wound
healing, however; further phytochemical studies are needed to find out
the active compound(s) responsible for wound healing promoting activity.
- An author found through trial and
error that only one glandular trichome exhibits the phytochemical
process that will produce the amount of THC associated with pain relief,
appetite stimulation and anti-nausea; euphoria and hallucinations are
undesirable side-effects, however.
- Colon cancer is one of the most
prevalent forms of cancer in the Western countries.
- Action of certain phytochemicals
Prevents colon cancer through application of large-scale gene
expression measurement techniques.
- Agricultural wastes are a largely
ignored source of high-value phytochemicals and value-added industrial
products. Grape canes are pruned annually, and these wastes represent a
potentially important global source of trans-resveratrol and trans- -viniferin.
- By comparison, grape cluster stems
are known to contain higher trans-resveratrol concentrations than grape
skins (about 0.05 mg/g dw), but no other part contains higher levels of
these high-value phytochemicals than the canes.
- Supercritical fluid-based technology
is used for the enrichment of high-value phytochemicals from seed oil
feedstocks and for conducting reactions to convert seed oils to higher
value oleochemical derivatives, as well as the exploitation of SC-CO? as
an extraction/reaction medium in the analytical characterization of seed
- Researchers are using a mouse model
of human breast cancer and expression-profiling technology to examine
cellular processes. Then Researchers focused on research charting
how vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals combine with specific
cellular and molecular structures, and with one another, to keep the
cancer process at bay.
- The global herbal market is valued at
USD 70 billion for nutraceuticals and USD 20 billion for phytomedicines
with an average annual growth rate between 15 to 20%.
- The distribution and composition of
phenolic phytochemicals are affected by a number of factors: cultivar,
fruit part, growing season, environmental conditions, horticultural
practices, geographic origin, postharvest storage conditions and
- Some supplement manufacturers,
however, have been considerably quicker to market the benefits of
phytochemicals. A few are claiming to offer the advantages of several
servings of fruits or vegetables within a very concentrated form.
