Extra- olive oil is regarded as functional food since epidemiological studies and multidisciplinary research have reported convincing evidence that its intake affects beneficially one or more target functions in the body improves health and reduces the risk of disease Its health properties have been related to the major and minor fractions of extra- olive oil

The nutritional properties and biological activities of kiwifruit and their different products made from same raw kiwifruit were investigated Compared with the more common Hayward variety three new kiwifruit varieties namely Qinmei Hongyang and Huayou showed better nutritional properties and biological activities

Quantifying soil biological activity can be difficult due to the complexity of the system Looking at different parameters such as roots available organic matter and soil aggregation/how the soil holds together can tell you a lot about the activity or health of the soil

Flavonoids have extensive biological properties that promote human health and help reduce the risk of disease Flavonoids extend the activity of vitamin C act as antioxidants protect LDL cholesterol from oxidation inhibit platelet aggregation and act as antiinflammatory and antitumor agents ( 39 – 41 )

Biological nitrogen fixation is carried out by free-living bacteria and cyanobacteria and by symbiotic microorganisms in a wide variety of mutualistically symbiotic associations with higher plants The most useful and probably the most widely recognized example of symbiotic nitrogen fixation is that of the Rhizobium - legume root-nodule symbiosis

Biological activity

In pharmacology biological activity or pharmacological activity describes the beneficial or adverse effects of a drug on living matter When a drug is a complex chemical mixture this activity is exerted by the substance's active ingredient or pharmacophore but can be modified by the other constituents Among the various properties of chemical

Sep 01 2012The hepatoprotective properties of dandelion were recently reviewed 103 Dandelion has been shown to modulate phase I and phase II enzymes in rat liver microsomes 104 for example after rats were given 4 weeks of free access to a 2% dandelion solution the activity of two cytochrome P450 (CYP) isoforms CYP1A2 and CYP2E in the liver
