Natural Products

Nutritional research of natural products has evolved considerably since its beginnings in primitive societies, where medicinal herbal therapy knowledge was passed on from generation to generation. These practices were later integrated into Indian Ayurvedic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Modern phytochemical research systematically focuses on the identification, efficacy, and synergistic function of phytochemicals present in plants and plant-derived foods to establish their role in regulating and modulating human health and disease prevention.

Our bioactive compounds and kits enable you to gain a better understanding of phytochemical interaction in cellular activities and phytochemical attributes, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative, neuroprotective, and antiangiogenic properties. We can support your research involving specific plants, their compounds, and physiological activity. This information can be harnessed to develop integrative medicine applications, as well as safe and effective nutraceuticals, or functional foods.
