Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
While the 20th century was an age of antibiotics, the 21st century was hailed as an age of antioxidants. After more than 20 years of researching these relationships, can we clearly state that they have fulfilled their hopes? Or, on the contrary, are they a great disappointment for humanity counting on a biochemical philosopher's stone? While the role of oxidative stress in the pathogenesis of so-called civilization diseases are reliably confirmed and indisputable, and free radical damage to the key macromolecules of our body is a component of the biological clock, it should be remembered that the oxidative processes occurring in our bodies are also key to maintaining health.
Contributions to this Special Issue can cover all aspects related to the antioxidant potential of natural compounds, extraction, characterization, identification and quantification; mechanisms of antioxidant action; looking for new compounds witch multidirectional antioxidant activity; the bioaccessibility and bioavailability of dietary antioxidants; interactions with other components; and the “dark side” of natural antioxidants, including in vitro and in vivo assays.
This Special Issue will include reviews, articles, and communications on the all aspects of the antioxidant activity and health-promoting properties of natural antioxidants.
