Nutrients is planning a Special Issue on the roles of natural bioactive compounds contained in dietary supplements and functional foods in the maintenance of a good health status. Usually, bioactive compounds underlying the health-related effects of functional foods and dietary supplements consumption have strong antioxidant activity. As oxidative stress and inflammation are considered the major triggering factors in chronic disease development, the chronic intake of natural bioactive compounds could be considered a useful tool to prevent and/or treat chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity and related comorbidities, neurodegeneration, and cancer. Moreover, the molecular mechanisms by which these beneficial compounds exert their beneficial effects require further study.
Authors are invited to submit proposals for manuscripts that fit the objectives and topics of this Special Issue. In particular, manuscripts presenting basic, applied, and clinical research; observational and meta-analysis studies; and analytical reviews on the beneficial roles of natural bioactive compounds in dietary supplements and healthy foods are encouraged.
