Polyphenols are plant natural products found in fruits, vegetables and seeds that we consume daily. They have a wide range of applications as food supplements or medicines. The growing antioxidant and anti-aging (Sensu largo) potential of polyphenols in the field of public health (to fight against degenerative diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, type II diabetes, hypertension or Alzheimer's disease) will be considered in this Special Issue.
But we will also consider the other side. While most in vitro and in cellulo assays are not disputed, it is sometimes more difficult to evaluate these beneficial effects at the level of the whole organism. Many epidemiological or clinical studies are in this respect at odds with some of these assays. Some other questions about their active concentrations, possible “cocktail effects”, for examples, also remain little (and sometimes not) discussed in the science of nutrition or in disease prevention policies. This Special Issue will also examine critical review, opinion papers or controversial views on this topic.
