Note Editore

Nutrition and Functional Foods in Boosting Digestion, Metabolism and Immune Health explores the role of appropriate nutrition and digestive enzymes in healthy digestion. The book addresses salient gastrointestinal features involved in healthy digestion pathophysiology, including coverage of the enzyme-microbiome connection and linkage, features of indigestion problems, roles of traditional and conventional ethnic foods, structurally diverse digestive enzymes, drugs, nutraceuticals and novel digestive formulations. In addition, the book addresses technological breakthroughs that have led to recent, novel discoveries and outlines nutritional guidelines and recommendations to achieve healthy digestion.

This book is a useful resource for nutrition researchers, nutritionists, physicians working in the field of digestive health, pharmacists, food experts, health professionals, nurses and general practitioners, public health officials and those teaching or studying related fields.

  • Provides coverage of digestion, human physiology and the enzyme-microbiome linkage
  • Covers indigestion problems, including gut dysbiosis and its role in chronic disease
  • Addresses traditional and conventional ethic foods
  • Discusses digestive enzymes, as well as digestive drugs, enzymes, nutraceuticals and novel formulations
