Assessment of bioactive compounds of some plants of South Kashmir
Bioactive compounds are phytochemical found in food that have potential to regulate modulating metabolic processes and resulting in the promotion of better health. Analysis and distribution of medicinal plants indicate that high consumption of foods rich in bioactive compounds with antioxidant activity, including vitamins, phytochemical and mainly phenolic compounds, such as flavonoids and carotenoids, has a positive effect on human health and could diminish the risk of various diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, cataracts and age-related problems. Bioactive compounds are mainly present in fruits, whole grains and vegetables. Bioactive compounds are different from nutrients because bioactive compounds are not essential and currently there are no recommended daily intake values. However, it is well established that a range of compounds from plants and animal sources has a positive influence on human health.
