Special Issue "Dietary Antioxidants: Evidence of Protective Effects against Chronic Disease"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2018)
Antioxidants are abundant micronutrients in human diet and evidence for their protective role against noncommunicable chronic diseases is emerging. Antioxidants are abundantly present in fruits and vegetables, nuts, cocoa, whole-grains, olive oil, and beverages, such as coffee and tea. It is known that a diet, plentiful in antioxidant-rich foods, may reduce the risk of chronic disease. However, due to the complexity of this relationship, a comprehensive understanding of the effects of bioactive food components is needed to better assume the role of complex dietary patterns in human health.
This Special Issue welcomes original research and reviews of literature concerning dietary antioxidants and the following issues:
- observational studies on nutritional cohorts or case-control studies on the association with chronic disease;
- clinical trials of dietary antioxidants on disease prevention;
- level of evidence on the association with human health (systematic reviews and meta-analyses);
- comprehensive reviews on dietary antioxidants;
- in vitro and in vivo studies on molecular mechanisms and targets of dietary antioxidants.
