Summary
"An Evidence-Based Approach to Dietary Phytochemicals presents a critical analysis of the current scientific, epidemiological, and clinical research on the health benefits of plant-based foods and dietary phytochemicals. Designed to aid the health professional in the clinical setting, the book also provides highly practical information for understanding the sources of dietary and supplementary phytochemicals, their interactions with nutrients and drugs, and any possible adverse effects of consuming them." "With an emphasis on the importance of consuming phytochemical-rich foods rather than dietary supplements, this book answers the needs of nutritionists, dietitians, nurses, and other health care professionals for a comprehensive text that will help them educate patients about healthy diets. Students in graduate programs in nutrition, food science, pharmacy and allied health fields will also benefit from the wealth of information provided in this book."--BOOK JACKET
