Hippocrates was to thank for the famous quote, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. Hippocrates and the Ancient Greeks weren’t the only ones onto something when they studied the many medicinal properties of foods. Many traditional systems of healing which have been practiced throughout history — including Ayurvedic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine, for example — have taught for thousands of years that food is medicine and a healthy diet is a powerful tool for protecting one’s health. In 2014, National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC) of China released the draft “Administrative Measures on the Catalogue of Substances Traditionally Considered as Both Food and Chinese Medicine” for public consultation. There are 101 substances included in the Catalogue.
Based on the food as medicine raw materials published by NHFPC and related literature, TargetMol carefully collects 305 compounds with safety guaranteed as Food as Medicine Library, which can be used for high throughput and high content screening for drug discovery.
