A special issue of Antioxidants (ISSN 2076-3921). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Outcomes of Antioxidants and Oxidative Stress".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2018).
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Numerous epidemiological studies have demonstrated the association between oxidative stress and non-communicable disease, including cardiovascular disorders, mental disease, and several types of cancer. Oxidative stress is commonly known as an imbalance in the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the biological antioxidant defense system. Exogenous antioxidants gained a great attention because of their beneficial role in preventing chronic disease. The balanced diet contain hundreds of naturally occurring antioxidant compounds, including polyphenols and vitamins. Antioxidants are commonly found in vegetables, fruits, cocoa, grain cereals, olive oil, nuts and beverages, such as coffee and tea.
This Special Issue would welcome original research and reviews of literature concerning dietary antioxidants and the following topics:
- observational studies on nutritional cohorts, case-control studies, or population sample on the association with non-communicable disease;
- clinical trials of dietary antioxidants on disease prevention;
- level of evidence on the association with human health, including systematic reviews and meta-analyses;
- in vitro and in vivo studies on molecular mechanisms and targets of dietary antioxidants
