The Natural Products and its Applications: Extraction, analysis, and bio-active properties with their application in health, food-nutrition and agrosystems
 
The Natural Products and its Applications: Extraction, analysis, and bio-active properties with their application in health, food-nutrition and agrosystems, phytochemicals from animals, insects, plants, and microorganisms (terrestrial and Marine), are used to produce many products and provide important aid for pharmaceutical, chemistry, and food industry and now for the circular economy. However, it is possible to redirect these bioactive components by applying novel methods and new applications. These bioactives have a positive health impact by modulating the metabolic processes and influence on the cellular activities due to their prominent biological properties, depending upon the pathway and their bioavailability. Despite this, some of these bioactives are hydrophobic in nature and therefore are less bioavailable in the body. However, with the novel technologies, their solubility, stability and functional properties can be enhanced.
