Over the last few years, polyphenol has received a great deal of attention due to their potential beneficial effects on human health. Widely contained in foods commonly consumed in all populations worldwide, polyphenols represent an attractive explanation of the beneficial effects, not only of fruits and vegetables, characteristic components of healthy dietary patterns, but also of other plant-derived foods, such as tea, coffee, and cocoa, which (in part) only recently have been exploited as being beneficial for humans. In addition to the numerous biological properties, polyphenols have been indicated as being responsible for a decreased risk of metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers. Research is ongoing and further evidence is needed to better characterize dietary factors that may exert prevention of chronic diseases associated with oxidative stress.
This Special Issue welcomes original research and reviews of literature concerning polyphenol-rich foods and the following topics:
- observational studies on established nutritional cohorts (preferred), case-control studies, or population sample on the association with chronic diseases;
- level of evidence on the association with human health, including systematic reviews and meta-analyses;
- description and characterization of main polyphenol components;
- description of mechanism of action, pathways, and targets at molecular level, including the interaction with gut microbiota.
