Journal of Pharmacology and Therapeutic Research underlines the importance of pharmacology in offering novel therapeutic solutions to the public health challenges that may arise due to Pulmonary Fibrosis, Aging, Neuroinflammation and Neurodegenerative Diseases.
The journal constitutes its Editorial-Board comprising scholars from all over the world that offers their critical views on the role of pharmacology in fighting chronic health disorders.
The article Flavonoid Friends or Foes is published in our Journal in 2018.
Flavonoids, which are groups of plant bioactive compounds, are natural polyphenols and their corresponding glycosides are important constituents of fresh fruits, green vegetables, nuts, spices, seeds, tea, olive oil and red wine. In addition to their antioxidant activity, flavonoids may inhibit carcinogenesis by different mechanisms.
Considering the high flavonoids intake as food additives and/or food supplements, and because the fact that the underlying mechanisms of action at the molecular level are still not fully understood and toxicity of flavonoids consumed in large doses remains unknown. For this reason, it is very important to more clearly understand the benefits, risks and related dosing and timing issues, in order to increase their benefits and to decrease to the lesser extent their risks. In addition, further clinical and epidemiological studies are greatly needed.
