Osteoporosis is a chronic, progressive bone condition that is most prevalent in postmenopausal women and the elderly population. An imbalance in the natural bone remodeling process, which is involved in the formation of bone and resorption, is responsible for osteoporosis, leading to bone fragility. It shows no clinical manifestation until a fracture takes place. Osteoporosis is a global epidemic that reduces the quality of life, increases the chances of disabilities, and adds on a huge financial load. Early diagnosis and treatment can help in preventing the disease. Several drug regimens are used in treating the condition; however, the drugs are accompanied by several adverse effects. Nutraceuticals, like herbs, minerals, vitamins, and dairy products, support skeletal strength and integrity. Therefore, the use of different types of nutraceuticals can improve overall bone strength and provide improved treatment of osteoporosis. The review paper focuses on providing indepth knowledge about the various nutraceuticals that are used in the management of osteoporosis along with the novel nanotechnology-based delivery approaches for enhanced delivery of nutraceuticals as the advent of nanotechnology in pharmaceuticals have opened new avenues in the challenging arena of nutraceuticals for providing benefits like stability, higher efficiency, solubility, enhanced bioavailability, permeability, and production without additives.

eBook Highlights – Phytochemicals in Vegetables: A Valuable Source of Bioactive Compounds


Phytochemicals in Vegetables A Valuable Source of Bioactive Compounds.jpg


Phytochemicals in Vegetables: A Valuable Source of Bioactive Compounds provides critical information about the diversity of phytochemicals in vegetable species, the most important identified compounds in the most commonly consumed vegetables, as well the health benefits and the bioavailability of such compounds. Details about the factors that affect chemical composition are also addressed. Chapters cover most common families of vegetable species (Allium, Cucurbitaceae, beans) as well as specific species with special interest (e.g. root vegetables, okra and artichoke).

The book is essential reading for academic readers (researchers and students) involved in agricultural sciences and food chemistry, as well as a broader readership, including public health actors, consumers and members of the food industry. To read out more, please visit: https://ebooks.benthamscience.com/book-highlights/190102002/
