A BIRD’S-EYE VIEW ON MARINE BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS WITH POTENTIAL HEALTH BENEFITSAbstract
Marine natural products are currently acknowledged as the most significant source of bioactive substances and medications with phenomenal biodiversity. Marine plants and creatures, for example, algae, bacteria, sponges, fungi, seaweeds, corals, diatoms, ascidians, are significant sources of the ocean and contain over 90% of the complete ocean biomass. Because of its exceptional biodiversity, the sea world is a rich common asset for some biologically active compounds. About half of the world’s biodiversity is a marine organism; thus, the seas and oceans are viewed as the biggest repositories with an immense assortment of new substances and natural molecules of benefit. During the previous four decades, various novel compounds have been confined from a marine organism, and a large number of these substances have been appeared to have intriguing biologic potential.This review is an ongoing update of data about efficient marine eugicons (proteins, peptides, amino acids, fatty acids, sterols, polysaccharides, oligosaccharides, phenolic compounds, photosynthetic pigments, vitamins, and minerals) and spotlight on their potential health benefits. Accordingly, the work assessed so far in this paper is planned to give the baseline data to directing marine plant-based research with modest, safe, and incredible medications to challenge the lethal human disease.
