Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a pathophysiological state associated with a cluster of interrelated factors, including abdominal obesity, insulin resistance, dysglycemia, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. Over the last few decades, a striking increase in the number of people affected by MetS has taken place worldwide. According to literature, finely-tuned, redox-dependent signal transduction mechanisms underlie and control metabolic dysregulations. Moreover, low-grade systemic inflammation is usually associated with such endocellular, redox dysfunctions and eventually leads to a dysfunctional metabolic rewiring.
Nutrition is one of the most important modifiable factors affecting human health, and appropriate dietary patterns have been demonstrated to effectively counteract the immunometabolic alterations leading to MetS development.
Contributions are invited from investigators worldwide, in the form of reviews or original research articles on both redox-dependent, biochemical mechanisms underlying MetS and nutritional studies aiming to analyze the effects of diet on such a common metabolic disorder.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Antioxidants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
