Abstract

The healthy effects of numerous bioactive natural compounds and the possibility to take advantage of their beneficial physiological functions are highly valued. Although the efficacy of a number of nutraceutical products has already been demonstrated in humans, the properties of many compounds are still unknown and, importantly, there is little information on the properties and potential of their combined use. For these reasons in vitro assays are necessary to identify the mechanisms underlying the protective role of a nutraceutical ingredient alone or in combination with other bioactive molecules. Here we describe examples of in vitro models and methodological approaches used to characterize and evaluate a number of effects of nutraceuticals in living cells.
