Dietary Interventions in Gastrointestinal Diseases: Foods, Nutrients
and Dietary Supplements provides valuable insights into the agents that
affect metabolism and other health-related conditions in the
gastrointestinal system. It provides nutritional treatment options for
those suffering from gastrointestinal diseases including Crohn’s
Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and Allergies,
among others. Information is presented on a variety of foods, including
herbs, fruits, soy and olive oil, thus showing that changes in intake
can change antioxidant and disease preventing non-nutrients and affect
gastrointestinal health and/or disease promotion.
This book serves as a valuable resource for biomedical researchers
who focus on identifying the causes of gastrointestinal diseases and
food scientists targeting health-related product development.
