Our goal is to build a reputable knowledge forum in the domains of human health by creating an integrated podium based on efficacy, safety, quality, and mechanisms of action of specified plant-derived nutrients in the form of original research, clinical trials, and contemporary reviews/meta-analysis. We welcome manuscripts for our dedicated sections relating to various areas of plant-nutrition with a focus on human health through an open-access platform.</p> <p><strong>Striking Reasons — why publish in PHYTONutrients </strong></p> <ul> <li>Open Access will result in more downloads and citations of your article.</li> <li>Article publication charges are waived until January 2024.</li> <li>Quality is assured with a robust peer-review process.</li> <li>Rapid publication as a first decision is provided to authors approximately 20 days after submission</li> <li>There is no space constraint.</li> <li>No charges for the use of color figures. </li> <li>There are no copyright restrictions. </li> <li>Reviewers who provide timely, thorough peer-review reports receive vouchers entitling them to a discount on the APC of their next publication in the journal. </li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><a href="https://phytonutrients.pk/index.php/pn/information/authors"><strong>Read the author's guidelines</strong></a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Meet the Editors</strong></p> <div class="editor-div__content img-exists"> <p><img src="http://phytonutrients.pk/public/site/images/khalil/maria-34beab492156ee4d9f37172aab899366.jpg" alt="" width="120" height="154" /><br /><strong>Editor-in-Chief<br />Prof. Dr. Maria Daglia</strong> <br /><em>University of Naples, Naples, Italy<br />E.mail: <a href="https://orcid.org/0000-0002-3740-3597">maria.dagila@unina.it</a><br /></em><a href="https://www.scopus.com/authid/detail.uri?authorId=6602560687&amp;amp;eid=2-s2.0-84890468694" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Learn more about Prof. Daglia</a><br /><br /><br /></p> </div> <div style="clear: both;"><img src="http://phytonutrients.pk/public/site/images/khalil/jianbo-xiao-cbad4db253e11c8dcb22a7cfdbf886b5.jpg" alt="" /></div> <div style="clear: both;"> <p><strong>Editor-in-Chief<br />Prof. Dr. Jianbo Xiao</strong> <br /><em>University of Vigo, Vigo, Spain<br />E.mail: jianboxiao@uvigo.es<br /></em><a href="https://www.scopus.com/authid/detail.uri?authorId=57208509093" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Learn more about Prof. Xiao</a></p> </div> http://phytonutrients.pk/index.php/pn/article/view/16 Role of phytochemicals isolated from Cirsium japonicum in neurological disorders 2023-11-14T16:41:15+00:00 Liangliang Yao llyao86@163.com Amir Javed 21-cuvas-0072@student.cuvas.edu.pk Muhammad Farrukh Nisar mfarrukhnisar@cuvas.edu.pk Chunpeng Wan chunpengwan@jxau.edu.cn <p>Phytochemicals are richest source of medicines since human history. <em>Cirsium japonicum</em>&nbsp;(Asteraceae), along with other members in the genus are a rich source of flavonoids, polyacetylenes, acetylenes, phenolic acids, phenylpropanoids, sterols, terpenoids and numerous other compounds. Current study aimed to describe an updated review of the literature on the hidden potential of the <em>C. japonicum</em>&nbsp;extracts and its active biological components on neurological disorders. Among various active phytochemicals in <em>C. japonicum</em>&nbsp;includes luteolin, hispidulin, cirsimaritin, acacetin, apigenin, diosmetin, linarin, pectolinarin, and silybin B. Flora of China has been reported around 50 <em>Cirsium</em>&nbsp;species, of which 13 species are reported to be used for treatment of stopping bleedings, removing blood stasis, reducing swelling, treating bleeding syndrome and neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer disease (AD). In addition, <em>C. japonicum</em>&nbsp;enhances antioxidant and anticancer activities at cellular level. Moreover, antidepressant potential of ethanol extracts of <em>C. japonicum</em>&nbsp;has also been well described are primarily due to positive modulatory impacts on GABAA receptor (GABAAR) complex. The presence of huge number of active ingredients report in multiple plant species altogether in <em>C. japonicum</em>, appealing for extensive studies for indepth examination of mechanisms and ultimately their usage in clinical trials.</p> 2024-05-16T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 PHYTONutrients
