Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nutraceutical was a term coined by the Foundation for Innovation in Medicine in 1989 to describe substances that could be used as foods or as part of foods, having health benefits including the prevention and treatment of diseases. It has now progressed from being a mere concept representing an area within biomedical research, to a multibillion dollar industry with a very bright future ahead. The range of products within nutraceuticals is broad and diverse including individual nutrients and biologically active phytochemicals, supplements, "functional" foods, and herbal products. However, there are several issues that still need to be addressed including future research directions, clinical evidence in support of the health claims, regulatory aspects, and product identity and standardization. Additionally, a clear understanding of the mechanisms of action of the nutraceuticals is essential in advancing their use in a safe and efficacious way. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is now dedicating a special issue "Advances in Nutraceutical Research' with the aim of publishing peer reviewed and up-to-date original research and review articles in this important area of nutrition and public health.  Target audiences of this special issue will include a full spectrum of stake holders representing research scientists, government agencies involved in developing regulatory guide lines, industrial scientists and management personnel, health professionals and consumer groups. In an effort to meet our goal, we invite submission of manuscripts that will be peer reviewed and published as part of the special issue. Through this initiative we hope to keep our readers up-to-date in all fields relating to nutraceuticals and advance our knowledge in this important area.
