AbstractSince ancient times, litchi has been well recognized as a functional food for the management of various ailments. Many bioactives, including flavanoids, anthocyanins, phenolics, sesquiterpenes, triterpenes, and lignans, have been identified from litchi with a myriad of biological properties both in vitro and/or in vivo. In spite of the extensive research progress, systemic reviews regarding the bioactives of litchi are rather scarce. Therefore, it is crucial to comprehensively analyze the pharmacological activities and their structure-activity relationships of the abundant bioactives of litchi. Besides, more and more researches focus on litchi preservation and development of its by-products, and that is significant for enhancing the economical value of litchi. Based on the analysis of published articles and patents, this review aims to reveal the development trends of litchi in health care field by carrying on the systematic summary of the pharmacological activities of its extracts and its phytochemical composition, nutritional, potential health benefits of litchi seed, pulp and pericarp with structure-activity relationships analysis. In addition, its by-products also exhibited promising development potential in material science, environmental protection fields. Further, because of the importance of litchi preservation, this study also provides an overview on the strategies of the postharvest storage and processing of litchi.
