The study of Immunonutrition, which focuses on the interactions between nutrition and immunity, has significantly intensified during the last decades. This is a relevant field that has raised the interest of many health professionals. Indeed, there is a relevant number of papers showing different effects of diverse nutrients and bioactive compounds on immunological biomarkers.
This Special Issue deals with several examples of nutrients and food ingredients that have shown benefits for human health. Nowadays, there is a big concern about non-communicable diseases, mainly in industrialized countries. On the basis of the extremely high global burden of obesity around the world, the incidence of illnesses in humans might dramatically change with respect to the 2000s, from around 900 million overweight people and 400 million obese people, to an estimation of more than twice these figures for the next decade. This outcome means that a great number of subjects will be more prone to suffer from different health problems related to organs that are essential for life. Thus, it is necessary to promote research, innovation, and development in this area, acquiring more knowledge to improve human health.
