The Role of Functional Food Security in Global Health Excerpt :

The Role of Functional Food Security in Global Health presents a collective approach to food security through the use of functional foods as a strategy to prevent under nutrition and related diseases. This approach reflects the views of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the World Heart Federation and the American Heart Association who advise Mediterranean, Paleolithic, plant food based diets, and European vegetarian diets for the prevention of cardiovascular disease. In addition, the book also emphasizes the inclusion of spices, herbs and millets, as well as animal foods. This book will be a great resource to the food industry as it presents the most efficient ways to use technology to manufacture slowly absorbed, micronutrient rich functional foods by blending foods that are rich in healthy nutrients. Provides greater knowledge on functional food security Highlights the necessary changes to the western diet that are needed to achieve food security Explains the utility and necessity of functional food security in the prevention of noncommunicable diseases Presents policy changes in food production for farmers and the larger food industry Offers suggestions on what can be done to enhance functional food production while simultaneously decreasing production costs

Nutritional Management and Metabolic Aspects of Hyperhomocysteinemia Excerpt :

Elevated blood concentrations of homocysteine, B vitamins deficiencies and oxidative stress are etiological factors for many human chronic diseases, yet the etiologic relationship of hyperhomocysteinemia to these disorders remains poorly understood. Clinical trials continue to support the notion that hyperhomocysteinemia is involved in the pathogenesis of oxidative stress and its associated impairment of cellular redox status. Antioxidants, phytochemicals, and bioactive agents are thought to be associated with the reduction of oxidative stress and reducing risk of chronic diseases, yet their role in preventing hyperhomocysteinemia-mediated oxidative stress has not been well covered in the literature. Nutritional Management and Metabolic Aspects and of Hyperhomocysteinemia comprehensively covers the nutritional-based intervention for combating hyperhomocysteinemia-mediated oxidative stress, metabolic regulation of homocysteine-dependent transulfuration and transmethylation pathways, and the identification of novel biomarkers for early diagnosis of hyperhomocysteinemia. The main goal of this text is to address the biochemical and nutritional aspects of hyperhomocysteinemia in relation to increasing risk of chronic diseases, providing insight into the etiology of hyperhomocysteinemia and covering new research on the effective reduction and management of hyperhomocysteinemia-associated chronic diseases. For researchers seeking a singular source for the understanding of the biochemical aspects and nutrition-based combat of hyperhomocysteinemia, its risk factors, preventive measures, and possible treatments currently available, this text provides all of the important needed information in up-to-date and comprehensive form.

Rationality and Scientific Lifestyle for Health Excerpt :

This book argues that, to be healthy, human beings should love nature and stay in balance with it as much as possible. In other words: do not unbalance nature so that your own balance is not disturbed. The best and healthiest way for human beings to live is to find balance in life and nature. In this regard, the book discusses useful, nutritious, functional foods, nutraceuticals and antioxidants, and how natural molecules, which are provided by nature, can be the best medicine for human beings. At a molecular level, stress is defined by the presence of unbalanced free radicals in the body. Most diseases – especially type 2 diabetes, which accounts for the majority of diabetics – can be traced back to this problem. Our scientific evidence indicates that type 2 diabetes isn’t just a disease resulting from sugar, but also from stress. The book seeks to promote a healthier lifestyle by considering the psychoemotional dimension of wellness. And finally, it contends that good sleep is at the root of health and happiness for humanity, and that unbalanced free radicals are expelled from the body during restful sleep. The authors hope that this book will be a helpful guide and source of peace for readers, especially given their need for inner calm during the COVID-19 pandemic, and that the suggestions provided will show them the way to a better life.
