Bioactive Compounds in Chronic and Infectious Diseases
Due to their significance in preventing chronic illnesses, bioactive substances such as polyphenols, carotenoids, vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, organic acids, nucleosides and nucleotides, and phytosterols have garnered considerable interest. Utilizing bioactive chemicals and their derivatives is one of the most promising ways to combat the current epidemic of infectious illnesses. Malaria and roundworm parasites are examples of infectious illnesses for which therapeutic plants have led the road to their universal eradication. Epidemiological studies indicate that high consumption of foods rich in bioactive compounds with antioxidant activity, such as vitamins, phytochemicals, and primarily phenolic compounds, such as flavonoids and carotenoids, has a positive impact on human health and may reduce the risk of numerous diseases, including cancer, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's, diabetes, cataracts, and age-related functional decline. These molecules may influence several biological processes in sick conditions in diverse organs. In this regard, the natural bioactive substances in food and herbs have a significant and direct role in regulating several metabolic and molecular pathways involved in preventing and treating chronic illnesses.
