Abstract

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a growing health concern in developing countries including India, resulting from an alarming rise in the known risk factors such as physical inactivity, overweight, diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. The role of food constituents in the etiology of chronic diseases and in their prevention has been increasingly understood in recent years. Effective nutritional intervention strategies for preventing or managing chronic diseases also call for basic information on the nutraceutical potential of non-nutrient phytochemicals, especially the ones with antioxidant properties. Recently attention has been focused on non-nutrient phytochemicals and polyphenols such as the flavonoids, as potential therapeutic agents in the prevention and management of CVD due to their antioxidant nature.
