Abstract
Biocompounactives contain chemicals that are found in small quantities in plants and certain foods (such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, oils and whole grains), they have actions in the body that can promote good health. The importance attached to benefits of food on health has never been so high before. All scientific studies confirm that a varied and balanced diet is factor of protection against cancer, cardiovascular disease (CVD), osteoporosis, diabetes, obesity and high cholesterol. In this second part of the review, we focus on studies that have been conducted on biocompounactives of common fruits, and opportunities that present bioactivity of these phytochemicals to prevent many chronic diseases. As well, we discuss some challenges that face the good investissment of biocompounactives, especially that related to bioavailability and bioefficacy, on the horizon to discuss the limits of experiments interpretation, mentioned here, in the third part of this review.
