Phytochemicals
Nutrient-Gene Interactions
edited by Mark S. Meskin

Phytochemicals: Nutrient-Gene Interactions examines the interactions between phytochemicals and the human genome and discusses the impact these interactions have on health, aging, and chronic conditions such as inflammation, heart disease, obesity, type II diabetes mellitus, and cancer.

Features:

  • Introduces methodologies for identifying genes regulated by diet, genotype, and genotype-diet interactions
  • Highlights the benefits of controlled clinical trials in dietary supplement development, suggesting both in vivo to ex vivo testing
  • Details adipose tissue gene expression in the context of inflammation and the pathogenesis of obesity
  • Explores the molecular mechanisms that underlie resveratrol activity and its role in cardiovascular health
  • Explains the mechanisms of protective action for components of whole grains
  • Dedicates the final chapter to the non-antioxidant cellular properties of vitamin E

Phytochemicals: Nutrient-Gene Interactions illustrates the growing role of nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics in disease prevention and in the responsible development of safe and effective phytochemical products within the food, pharmaceutical, and supplement industries.
