Part 3 discusses potential alternative therapeutic dietary supplements such as synbiotics, nutraceuticals from microbes, and phytochemicals from the cactus plant. Part 4 features the importance and benefits of dietary phytopharmaceuticals, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, glucosinolates, phytoestrogens, phytosterols and carotenoids. Part 5 discusses antioxidant phytonutrients and their therapeutic values.
