Alzheimer's disease, one of the most rapidly growing neurodegenerative disorders, is characterized by progressive loss of memory. Despite several advancements in the field of medicinal therapeutics, a viable treatment for Alzheimer's disease is the need of great importance. Medicinal plants represent a great deal of untapped reservoir of natural medicines and potential source of anti-Alzheimer's drug. The structural diversity of their phytoconstituents makes them a valuable source of novel lead compounds for the quest of drugs to treat Alzheimer's disease. Based on the traditional literature, various new therapeutically active compounds have been isolated from phytoextracts useful in cognitive disorders.

The book "Phytomedicine and Alzheimer's disorder" presents information on

Mechanistic aspects of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease and role of phytochemicals as restorative agents

Helps in understanding the complex biochemical aspects of Alzheimer's disorder

Pre-clinical approaches to evaluate drugs targeting Alzheimer's disease

Aternative approach to encounter Alzheimer's disease and role of alternative medicine to delay the symptomatic progression of the same

Epigenetic alterations in Alzheimer's disease and its therapeutic, dietary interventions

This book serves as an excellent resource for scientific investigators, academician, biochemists, botanists, alternative medicine practitioners who are intended to emphasize the role of phytomedicines to treat Alzheimer's disease.
