Bioactives and Nutraceuticals

A section of International Journal of Molecular Sciences (ISSN 1422-0067).

Section Information

This section of IJMS focuses on publishing high-quality manuscripts that report on the novel research findings on bioactive compounds and nutraceutical products. The focus is not only on the chemical composition of these ingredients, but, more specifically, in describing their mechanism of action in improving human nutrition. This includes, but is not limited to: the discovery of novel bioactive natural products, the role of these products in manipulating food structure and hence potential physiological mediation for human nutrition, the use of in vitro and in vivo bioactivity research using cell lines and animal models as exemplars of human physiology. We welcome submissions and studies on nutritional applications using biological, chemical, cellular, molecular, and immunological methods.
