Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The marine environment is one of the most important sources of nutrients, with its consumption the main way of nutrient intake for many people around the world. Marine-derived foods provide carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins, and mineral elements that are essential for human nutrition and the maintenance of body health. However, besides their nutritional value, they also provide other bioactive ingredients that are recognized for their strong antioxidant capacity and ability to counteract and/or provide some protection against many chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular, inflammatory, and neurodegenerative disorders. This Special Issue intends to share cutting-edge research on nutraceuticals based on marine antioxidant compounds. Therefore, works focused on their isolation and chemical characterization, bioavailability and bioaccessibility assessment, structure–bioactivity relationships, and the underlying mechanisms of action using the most recent in vitro and in vivo models, are welcome. Additionally, well-supported studies relating health benefits to the consumption of antioxidant nutraceuticals will also be considered.
