Prompted by the strong academic and public interest in our previously-edited Special Issue for Molecules, focused on the topic "Effects of Natural Products in the Context of Cardiometabolic Disease", we will release another Special Issue. For this new issue, entitled "Bioactive Molecules and Their Mechanisms of Action", we strongly encourage the submission of works examining the mode of action of natural products in models of cardiovascular or metabolic diseases, but also extend the scope to include submissions that are related to the mechanistic characterization of compounds other than natural products, or to bioactivities beyond the cardiometabolic field, including but not limited to effects on inflammation, advanced antioxidant activity studies, or effects on gut microbiota.
