  • Introduction

    Bioactive compounds are present in plant foods, are important for health and presents various benefits in a variety of species, including rodents and humans. Global diseases, like non transmissible chronic diseases can be treated with bioactive proteins, antocianins, phenolics, carotenos and other bioactive compounds presents in the food. Bioavailability, metabolic routes and the action of the resultant metabolites of bioactive food compounds are important aspects that may affect non transmissible chronic diseases. This compounds can activate, for example, signaling pathways adaptive intracellular agents against oxidative stress and exposure to the environment.
    Researches have shown improvement in inflammation, obesity, reduction of change on liver, small intestine and kidneys with the use of bioactive componds. The effects and mechanisms by which bioactive compounds act in this direction are not yet fully understood. Although the food is not postulated as a medicine, it is believed that continued use of foods that have bioactive compounds which act favorably in the inflammatory process, maintenance of adequate physical activity, whether an efficient way to reduce the risk of diseases onset. We welcome the submission of manuscripts, either describing original research with models animal or humans or reviewing scientific literature on the topic of bioactive compounds effect in health and disease.
