Naturally Occurring Chemicals Against Alzheimer’s Disease offers a detailed discussion on the roles, molecular mechanisms, structural activity relationships, toxicology, and clinical data on phytochemicals in relation to Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in a single source. Alzheimer’s disease is a complex degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia. More research is needed on drugs which are not only effective but also safer to use for longer period. As such, research on phytochemicals and plant based extracts has increased with advances in understanding molecular mechanisms and development of new formulations with better bioavailability and efficacy. This new resource examines the available phytochemicals and plants that are potentially effective and also determines the role and molecular targets of these phytochemicals in combating AD. Naturally Occurring Chemicals Against Alzheimer’s Disease is helpful to researchers who are working on herbal drugs on AD, phytochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, clinical trials, neuroscience, and advancement in formulations.
