Customer Reviews

Excellent book

This is an excellent book and is very relevant, considering the current pandemic that we are all living through. The 33 expert authors from around the world do a great job of explaining what COVID-19 is, the factors that cause the disease to spread and affect the immune system, and what foods may help people deal with the virus or avoid getting the virus altogether. 

Interesting and Informative

From experts to students, anyone looking to learn more about functional foods and their effects on viruses will definitely get their money’s worth. For those in the fields of science, medicine, public health, and nutrition, Functional Foods and Viral Diseases offers comprehensive data on fighting viral disease, from both molecular and public health perspectives, as well as information on the production and marketing of functional foods. 


Great read

Vulnerable populations especially, such as the elderly, lack a strong immune system to fight off such viruses, and the experts involved in writing this book excellently detail what foods can be used to fight off the virus and strengthen the immune system.


An engaging read

Overall, Functional Foods and Viral Diseases offers unique and pertinent views on the Covid-19 pandemic and the role that one’s diet and health can foster moving forward.
