Special Issue "Dietary Antioxidants"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2013).
Interests: clinical nutrition; clinical trials research; dietary antioxidants; vitamin E; vitamin C; carotenoids; omega-3 fatty acids; women's health
Our diets are composed of thousands of compounds, yet very few of these are considered essential nutrients, that is, nutrients that cannot be synthesized by the body and must be consumed. A number of essential nutrients, such as vitamin C and vitamin E, have critical functions including antioxidant functions. There are also numerous non-essential dietary components, such as flavonols, that are also antioxidants. The objective of this special edition is to define the role of the dietary antioxidants with reference to human health and well-being. It is also a goal to examine the balance between antioxidant activity and positive oxidant effects with respect to chronic disease conditions and the aging process. It is hoped that the review articles published in this edition will help to clarify the ongoing discussions of the impact of dietary antioxidants, consumed in dietary components and/or supplements, on the balance between antioxidant status and risk for oxidative damage.
