Title : Immunostimulatory Phytochemicals from Pseudo Cereals


Phytochemicals found in plants, play a significant role in contributing to the wellbeing of human populations and from time immemorial, we have been consuming a large number of these phytocompounds as part of our diet. In the recent past, there has been a revived interest in the consumption of pseudo cereals because of their nutritional value and various health benefits. The wide array of phytochemicals present in pseudo cereals confer them with medicinal properties that include reinforcing the immune system. Such compounds could potentially lead to the discovery of novel immune boosters.  Keeping the above background in mind, this discussion is aimed at throwing some light on immunostimulatory phytochemicals that could be obtained from some pseudo cereals.
