Organisms exhibit biological rhythms to adapt to the environment, such as daily and seasonal light changes. Biological rhythms, which include circadian and circannual rhythms, are closely related to metabolism and health status. For example, it is known that blood pressure, circulating levels of leptin, prolactin and insulin response varies according to season. Actually, alterations of the rhythms, such as shift work or social jetlag, are linked to metabolic disorders. Therefore, in order to maintain optimal health, it is necessary to keep rhythms under control. In this sense, the intake of nutrients can modulate biological rhythms. Moreover, in recent years, the relation of nutrition and rhythms has been clearly stated. For instance, the activity of bioactive compounds or nutrients from the diet is dependent on the intake time.
Within this framework, nutrigenomics play a crucial role in evaluating the impact of food or their components on the regulation of biological rhythms and their metabolic consequences. In this Special Issue, we welcome cross-sectional animal or human studies that evaluate the molecular mechanisms that explain the relationship between nutrition and biological rhythms and their impact on health.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
