Special Issue "Dietary Polyphenols and Cardiometabolic Diseases"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 October 2019).
Interests: polyphenols, antioxidant, immune response, microbiota, probiotics, prebiotics, intestinal inflammation, metabolic syndrome, obesity
Polyphenols are compounds that are widely distributed throughout the vegetable kingdom, including edible plants. Different biological properties have been ascribed to these compounds, including antioxidant and immunomodulatory, which may be of great utility in acute and chronic conditions. In fact, the beneficial effects of various polyphenols on different cardiovascular-associated disorders, such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus type 2, and metabolic syndrome, are well-known. However, there is a clear demand from the scientific community to elucidate the exact mechanisms involved in these beneficial effects, like those concerning the impact of polyphenols on gut microbiota composition or the therapeutic properties of their metabolites generated after oral intake on cardiometabolic diseases.
This Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled “Dietary Polyphenols and Cardiometabolic Diseases”, welcomes the submission of manuscripts either describing original research or reviewing the scientific literature, including systematic reviews and meta-analyses. The proposed manuscripts should cover the effects of dietary polyphenols on cardiometabolic diseases, focused on the precise mechanisms involved, especially those related to the generation of metabolites and/or their impact on gut microbiota composition.
