Polyphenols: Properties, Recovery, and Applications
Polyphenols: Properties, Recovery, and Applications cover polyphenol properties, health effects, and new trends in recovery procedures and applications. Beginning with coverage of the metabolism and health effects of polyphenols, the book then addresses recovery, analysis, processing issues, and industrial applications. The book not only connects the properties and health effects of polyphenols with recovery, processing, and encapsulation issues but also explores industrial applications that are affected by these aspects, including both current applications and those under development.
- Covers the properties and health effects of polyphenols, along with trends in recovery procedures and applications
- Addresses recovery, analysis, and processing issues
- Concludes with coverage of the industrial applications of polyphenols
Bioactive Polyphenols from Wine Grapes
Is red wine good for you? And if so, why? How much? And what are the actual benefits? This addition to the SpringerBriefs in Cell Biology series thoroughly but succinctly answers these questions. It covers the biochemistry, health benefits, and therapeutic potential of wine grapes. It begins with an overview of phytoalexin production in Vitis vinifera (Common Grape Vine), detailing the relationship of resveratrol to analogs such as pterostilbene, piceid, and the viniferins (resveratrol oligomers). The discussion then turns to the hundreds of reports linking resveratrol and related grapevine polyphenols to various beneficial health effects especially cardio- and cerebrovascular, metabolic, anti-inflammatory, and more. Also addressed are the numerous intracellular mechanisms that have been shown to mediate the effects of these compounds in mammalian cells and tissues. Finally, the authors discuss aspects of polyphenol bioavailability and how this will influence choices taken for delivering these compounds as nutritional supplements. A brief chapter containing general conclusions and prospectus rounds out the information.
