Natural products interest is gradually increasing worldwide. Plant-food-derived bioactives have a long history of use as a good source of ingredients for valuable medical usages. Plant-based foods consist of micro and macronutrients, and bioactive components, with health-promoting benefits. The handling of complex mixtures of plants has been methodically switched by therapies using a single isolated substance. The delivery of bioactive molecules in nanosystems is enhancing their bioavailability, it is much safer and cost-effective. However, there are many challenges in combining bioactive substances in nanocarrier materials. A discussion related with nanocarriers will be done in this review.
