Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bioactive compounds can be derived from natural products, animal products, and plants, and can be synthetically produced. They have gained widespread attention in recent years as they have shown to be effective in a number of chronic and infectious diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and infectious diseases. In addition, their use can promote better health. As such, vitamins, minerals, herbal, polyphenols, pre- and pro-biotics, natural products, nutritional therapies, and cannabis therapies have been shown to boost the immune system, consequently helping to manage and treat disease. This Special Issue will focus on natural and bioactive treatments used to overcome or manage chronic and infectious diseases, including in vitro, animal in vivo, and human clinical studies.
