Cardiometabolic diseases, including, among others, atherosclerosis, diabetes type 2, and liver steatosis, are the main cause of morbidity and mortality in the world. An accumulating body of evidence indicates that some naturally occurring molecules, partly present in diet or traditional medicinal plants, are able to modulate the initiation or the progression of this group of disorders.
This Special Issue aims at summarizing current developments in the targeted area of research. We, therefore, encourage submission of reviews or original research papers studying in vitro or in vivo the action of natural molecules on cellular signaling pathways, proteins, or physiological reactions relevant for cardiometabolic disease.
