Due to their efficiency, safety, and structural diversity, natural products have attracted more and more interest from researchers aiming to identify drug candidates for metabolic disorders, including obesity, diabetes, and aging. Despite the availability of many pharmacotherapies, new small molecules that are capable of preventing or treating metabolic disorders are needed. In recent years, the identification of novel therapeutic targets and the application of various omics technologies have shed light on the vitality of natural products. This Special Issue aims to report and review the latest progress made in the use of natural products for preventing and treating obesity, diabetes, and aging, as well as their potential applications as health products or drug candidates.
