Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
We are organizing a Special Issue on how nutraceutical and adaptogen dietary supplementation mediates stress and exercise responses in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/ijerph.
Nutraceuticals and adaptogens are dietary molecules which may have the ability to improve health and/or increase an organism’s ability to counteract stress. These may be chronic or acute stress responses which can be manifested in physical exertion (i.e., exercise), psychological stress (i.e., mental fatigue), or environmental factors (i.e., altitude, heat). For some of these molecules, dietary enrichment has been used for centuries in folk medicine as homeopathic interventions to combat physical fatigue and promote wellbeing. However, many nutraceuticals and adaptogens have unsubstantiated health claims which necessitates further well designed and controlled research. In this Special Issue, we are seeking original investigations and reviews in nutraceuticals and adaptogen supplementation in the following contexts:
- Exercise and physical stress
- Hot and humid environments
- Psychological stress
- Metabolic or oxidative stress
- Cold exposure
