Majority of the plants used in traditional system of medicine are rich in polyphenols and flavonoids which not only regulate the growth of plants but also are rich source of phytochemicals employed in human and animal health. Polyphenols and flavonoids have been advocated as nutraceuticals in human medicine to treat certain modern lifestyle diseases including cancer. These phytochemicals seem to possess great potential for their use in animal health and production system and to replace certain synthetic chemicals which are deleterious on account of their residual effects on human and animal health. Some of the common polyphenols and flavonoids possessing desirable pharmacological activities and the potential for use in livestock and poultry sectors are kaempferol, quercetin, genistein, rutin, catechin, etc. Similarly, some of the plants rich in polyphenols and flavonoids can be used as green fodder and as feed supplements to formulate certain functional foods for augmenting productivity of animals and poultry.
