Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nutrients was launched in 2009 and has published over 10,000 papers since. With an impact factor of 4.171, Nutrients ranks as a Q1 journal and has become an excellent open source platform to ensure rapid and widespread exposure of your research findings and perspectives.

As the Section Editor of the newly established Phytochemicals and Human Health section, we personally invite you to submit a review paper in your specific area of expertise. This Special Issue aims to publish high-quality scientific contributions providing novel insights into the impact of dietary intake of plant ingredients, also called phytochemicals, on the physical, mental, and emotional health and wellbeing of humans.
