Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
During the last decade, a high volume of work has been published on the health-promoting effects of berries (e.g., blueberries, cranberries, blackberries, etc.) that are high in antioxidant phytochemicals, polyphenols. Consuming diets high in polyphenols has also been documented to attenuate the risk of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, diabetes mellitus, and neurodegenerative disorders. Recent evidence also reveals that the biological effects of polyphenols extend beyond their traditional antioxidant role. This Special Issue will publish both reviews and original research papers on the role of berry antioxidants not only in maintaining health but also in preventing and/or reversing disease both in animal models and in humans. Additionally, the molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways engaged by berry antioxidants will be included.
