Book Description

This unique volume provides an insight into bioactive compounds of tea from studies of both chemical structures and pharmacological aspects. Examples of the beneficial health effects of tea compounds in managing health problems and diseases are presented, with an emphasis on viral diseases such as COVID-19. Vaccines are not always available in many countries, thus simple and inexpensive measures which are easily available to help mitigate for example, the COVID-19 pandemic, are urgently needed. Dietary bioactive compounds could be alternative nutritional approaches in combating infection in addition to existing therapies and also upcoming vaccines and drugs, by enhancing their efficacy.
