Dietary Interventions in Liver Disease: Foods, Nutrients, and Dietary Supplements provides valuable insights into the agents that affect metabolism and other health-related conditions in the liver. It provides nutritional treatment options for those suffering from liver disease. Information is presented on a variety of foods, including herbs, fruits, soy and olive oil, thus illustrating that variations in intake can change antioxidant and disease preventing non-nutrients that affect liver health and/or disease promotion. This book is a valuable resource for biomedical researchers who focus on identifying the causes of liver diseases and food scientists targeting health-related product development.

Key Features

  • Provides information on agents that affect metabolism and other health-related conditions in the liver
  • Explores the impact of composition, including differences based on country of origin and processing techniques
  • Addresses the most positive results from dietary interventions using bioactive foods to impact liver disease, including reduction of inflammation and improved function
