Marine Natural Substances



The term “natural products” typically refers to the organic products that are produced by animals, plants, and all other lifeforms in their natural state or are present within their bodies, as opposed to those that are produced artificially. Natural products such as proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids are present in relatively large amounts within organisms and exist in many types, ranging from the component substances of the body to substances such as vitamins and hormones that are present in extremely small quantities in organisms and control their functions.
