Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Medicinal plants, aromatic herbs, and wild herbs have been used as medicines in traditional and ethnomedical medicine since ancient times.

Their chemical composition confers upon them strong biological activity as well as a host of advantageous medicinal qualities, such as antioxidant, nephroprotective, and anti-inflammatory effects. In this context, there is a renewed attention towards natural products with the final goal of delineating their biological profile, their antioxidant potential, and verifying their applications in many sectors, from health to food to cosmetics to pharmaceuticals. The Special Issue "Biological Applications of Natural Product Antioxidant Activity" invites researchers to contribute original research articles and review articles related to the analysis of the biological properties of natural antioxidants and their potential applications for human health.
