Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the sequence of our previous Special Issue, “Impact of Different Nutritional Strategies on Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease”, titled "Impact of Different Nutritional, Supplementation and Physical Activity Strategies on Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease—Second Edition", which aims to investigate the effects of various nutrition, supplementation, and physical activity strategies on individuals diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.

The primary objective of this Special Issue is to explore how different nutritional, supplementation, and physical activity approaches, solely or in combination, can contribute to the prevention, remission, treatment, and the even exacerbation of IBD among patients. It is noteworthy that many patients currently adopt a range of nutrition, supplement, and physical activity plans without a comprehensive understanding of the potential impact on their condition. Consequently, there is a discernible exacerbation of disease symptoms, significantly affecting the overall quality of life for these individuals.

We extend an invitation to researchers and experts in the field to contribute their valuable insights to this crucial scientific topic. By shedding light on the intricate relationship between nutrition, supplementation, and physical activity, we can offer much-needed guidance and support to patients striving to manage their condition effectively.

Your contributions to this Special Issue will undoubtedly provide invaluable knowledge, helping to bridge the existing gaps in understanding and offering practical recommendations to enhance the well-being of those grappling with IBD.

Please consider submitting your original research articles, reviews, and clinical studies to further our collective understanding of this important area. Together, we can pave the way for enhanced patient care and contribute to improved outcomes for individuals living with IBD.

We look forward to receiving your valuable contributions.
