Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Most people around the world consume at least one type of dietary supplement on a daily basis to ensure adequate nutrition and/or to prevent or treat various diseases. Some of the major common chronic diseases include cardiovascular diseases (heart disease, hypertension, congestive heart failure), Type II diabetes, cancers, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The purpose of this Special Issue is to gather high-quality research papers with a solid research setting and/or translational potential on this topic, in order to create an up-to-date, systematic overview that examines, in detail, the functional role of dietary supplements in chronic diseases. We are interested in both clinical and pre-clinical investigations that test novel hypotheses that can advance the field. In this Special Issue of Nutrients, we are making a call to action to motivate researchers to submit their invaluable studies on this intriguing topic. This Special Issue welcomes the submission of manuscripts which either include evidence-based original research or reviews of the scientific literature.

Dr. Thomas A. Wilson
