In the recent years, nutraceuticals have become the focus of interest for the researchers, food technologist and also for the consumers as they have health promoting, therapeutic and disease preventive properties. The nutraceuticals possess health beneficial potential like anti-inflammatory, antioxidant property, antimicrobial and immune potentiating effects which advocate their use as therapeutic agents. They have a promising place in healthcare industry use due to their ability to prevent a number of diseases like diabetes, cancer, hypertension, cardiovascular disorders and neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's disease. These bioactive compounds are widely present in plants, marine, microbes and animal sources. These compounds differ in their biological and physiochemical properties. An enormous effort and expenditure is utilized not only on the research and development of these bioactives but also on creating consumer awareness on these products and its health benefits. In the present review, an attempt has been made to elucidate the role of the various bioactive compounds that can be utilized as nutraceuticals in disease prevention and also its prospective application in the food and feed industry.

Keywords: Antioxidant activity, immune enhancement, anti inflammatory, anti diabetic, anti cancer, antiobesity
