Special Issue "Benefits of Dietary Phytochemicals"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
This Special Issue will focus on selected plants and phytochemicals therein to describe the role of dietary phytochemicals that modify cell signaling pathways. Plants are well known to generate a variety of phytochemicals that possess unique physical and chemical properties. The attributes of each phytochemical are responsible for producing unique chemical interactions with traditional and novel disease targets. A layer of complexity includes the use of combinations of phytochemicals present in selected extracts and how these phytochemicals generative a comprehensive pharmacological response.
More specifically, this Special Issue will focus on understanding how dietary phytochemicals, isolated and present in unique combinations, can be used for generating positive benefits with respect to overall health.
