As the Guest Editor of this Special Issue, I would like to invite you to contribute a paper focusing on the role of Dietary Polyphenols in Contemporary Disease. Diet-related chronic conditions of modern society, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, obesity, neurodegenerative disease, and cognitive decline, are one of the main causes of death. Diet is a well-recognised modifiable risk factor that can help reduce contemporary diseases, improving healthy aging and health span quality. Polyphenols are a diverse and heterogenous group of secondary plant metabolites, found in a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, and many other plant foods. Continuing research highlights the dynamic capacity of polyphenols to exert potential health effects through several mechanisms. We would be happy to receive your manuscript related to this topic. Once the Special Issue is closed, we will share it with relevant scholars to promote all contributions. Antioxidants (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/antioxidants) is an Open Access journal with high visibility; we also provide free English editing after the acceptance of your paper. The Article Processing Charges (APC) are 550 CHF (Swiss Francs) per accepted paper; please see https://www.mdpi.com/about/apc for details. If you wish to check the suitability of your manuscript for this Special Issue prior to submission, you are welcome to send an abstract to the editorial office, [email protected] or [email protected] and you will receive a prompt feedback.
We look forward to collaborating with you in the near future.
Dr. Catherine Tsang
