With the better-quality reaction of food health and nutrition, experts are enthusiastic to research the efficient or bioactive compounds in food. Some bioactive compounds in food may cause lethal harm to health, while some bioactive compounds which play reverse roles can prevent cardiovascular, obesity and metabolic diseases. Potential themes include but are not limited to the following, Development of nutritious approaches to decrease the hazards caused by dietary bioactive compounds, the role of dietary bioactive compounds in the enhancement of gut microbiota, biochemical biomarkers of chronic metabolic diseases. The herbs and parts of plants, which have been filled with various medicinal and diet values; are being referred to as medicinal herbs or plants. The usage of medicinal plants for the treatment of a wide range of diseases has been in practice for thousands of years and it has been observed to be effective too. The phyto-components are one of the ancient yet effective ways of treating diseases and disorders without any severe side effects. The products of the plants can be used in dietary formulations, which can be exploited as functional foods. Nutraceuticals, widely known as functional foods fall into two forms as conventional and modified and plays an important role in protecting against nutrient deficient diseases and elevating the immune response against certain diseases effectively. The pathophysiology of human diseases is complicated; however, cancer pathogenesis has been understood to a certain extent, which paves a way for effective treatment of the disease. Very few studies have reported the effectiveness of functional foods in disease and evidence are being available for the prevention of disease, enhancing health through functional foods. The inter-relationship between the medicinal plants, functional foods and human disease as well as diet for animals are discussed as a whole in a detailed manner, with scientific evidence in this book, which paves an easy road towards the research on medicinal plant products and functional foods in the treatment of diseases and nutraceuticals in human/animals. The zones enclosed in this special issue incorporate, but are not limited to: • Nutrients as anti-cancer products • Marine by-products in Animal diets • Phytoconstituents as anti-cancer products • Anti-inflammatory activity of plant derived compounds • Secondary metabolites from natural by products • Marine sources anti-cancer and ani-diabetic products • Impacts of Vitamins and Minerals in disease prevention and treatment • Synthesis of bio-active compounds from plants • Nanoparticles and their applications in the treatment • Bio-green synthesis of nanoparticles: production, characterization and applications • In vitro and in vivo analysis • Antimicrobial activity of plant derived compounds • Microbial identification and characterization • Nanomaterials; drug delivery • Nanomaterial in Food Science and Packing
