Phytochemicals

Phytochemicals are plant derived chemical compounds. Antioxidants, Primary and secondary metabolite, atropine, and some antibiotics derived from plant, all are phytochemicals. There are thousands of phytochemicals are found in vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.  Basically they don’t have any nutrition value for human beings but they have some other properties like antibacterial properties, hormonal and enzymatic properties and antioxidant effect. Antioxidants also prevent the free radical damage in cancer and other heart disease. Plant basically produces these chemicals for protect them from any microbial infection. There is a lot of use of phytochemicals in human life. Example of some phytochemicals are  Alkaloids, Monoterpenes, Anthocyanin, Organosulfides, Carotenoids, Coumestans, Flavonoids, Hydroxycinnamic acid, Isoflavones, Lignin, Monophenols, Phenolic acid, Phytosterols, Saponins, Stylbenes, Triterpenoids and Xanthophylls.

Phytochemicals are the chemicals which are derived from plants. They have no nutrient values for plant itself. There are around 4000 different kind of phytochemicals have been discovered.
