Special Issue "Natural Products and Human Health: Current Understanding and Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2021.
Natural products (NPs) are rich source of therapeutic agents utilized in both traditional and modern medicine for treating diseases and maintaining health. For this reason, NPs are regarded as an important repository for the development of potential novel drugs.
This Special Issue aims to present novel findings documenting the pharmacological and/or biological activity of NPs products. In particular, we intend to focus on the physiological, biochemical, and molecular processes underlying the mechanism of action of NPs in in vitro and in vivo studies related to human nutrition. The submission of studies aimed at characterizing the bioavailability and the biological effect of NP metabolites will also be welcomed. Research paper on original products, extracts, and single molecules will be considered. We invite clinicians and researchers to submit relevant scientific work, in the form of either original articles, short communications or reviews, to this Special Issue of Nutrients on “Natural Products and Human Health: Current Understanding and Application”.
