Dietary antioxidants derived from plant-based foods have been demonstrated to decrease the risk of numerous chronic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and cancer. Interestingly, dietary antioxidants have recently been hypothesized to affect mental health through the modulation of circadian rhythm, gut microbiota, and systemic inflammation.
This Special Issue will focus on both observational and molecular studies investigating the effect of antioxidant molecules as well as antioxidant-rich foods and dietary patterns toward mental health. Moreover, the Special Issue will welcome reviews and studies providing evidence of the effect of antioxidants factors on cognitive function, depression, sleep patterns, stress, and quality of life.
