Polyphenols in Prevention and Treatment of Human Disease, Second Edition, authoritatively covers the evidence of the powerful health benefits of polyphenols, ranging from protection against cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, and osteoporosis. This collection represents an international group of experts in polyphenol research and the coverage is appropriately broad, drawing in endocrinology, public health, cardiology, pharmacology, agriculture, and veterinary science. Researchers from diverse backgrounds will gain insight into how clinical observations and practices can feed back into the research cycle and will, therefore, be able to develop more targeted insights into the mechanisms of disease. For decades, conventional therapies have proven unsuccessful or have many side effects in the prevention of disease. This reference fills a void in the research field which nutritionists and alternative therapies may be applicable. Advancing research in the understanding and treatment of disease will be widely accepted.

Key Features

  • Provides diseases in one volume and expands coverage to neurology
  • Describes polyphenol modulation of blood flow and oxygenation, being a potential mechanism of protection to prevent vascular atherosclerosis
  • Describes how polyphenols and antioxidants frequently change immune defenses and actions
  • Focuses on most important areas of research and provides insights into their relationships and translational opportunities


Biochemists, endocrinologists, nutritionists, dieticians, and clinical researchers interested in how the mechanisms of polyphenols contribute to the prevention and treatment of disease
