Special Issue in Nutrients: Effect of Phytochemicals on Fat Oxidation during Exercise
Caffeine is naturally present in the leaves and seeds of different plants, and it has been traditionally used to improve mental alertness and wakefulness by using brews of these plants. However, caffeine has become a very common ingredient in manufactured products such as sodas, energy drinks, thermogenic supplements, pre-workouts, and over-the-counter medications. Alongside the appearance of new forms of caffeine intake in our modern society, positive applications of both acute and long-term ingestion of caffeine have increased, while the effects of caffeine on cardiovascular, respiratory, thermoregulatory, and metabolic systems are well-understood at present. However, interindividual variability in physiological responses to caffeine, the time course of tolerance to the benefits of caffeine, and the effects of caffeine withdrawal require further investigation.
As the guest editor of the Special Issue “Coffee and Caffeine Consumption for Human Health”, I kindly invite you to submit a manuscript to Nutrients, one of the most read and cited research journals in “Nutrition and Dietetics”. The goal of this Special Issue is to provide new evidence of the effects of caffeine intake (especially, but not limited to, coffee consumption) on different aspects of human health. We welcome manuscripts related to original research articles, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and opinions related to the effects of caffeine on health outcomes.
Dr. Juan Del Coso Garrigós
