Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

With the change in people's diets and lifestyles, the number of patients with metabolic diseases such as diabetes, obesity and gout is on the rise. The rational use of dietary supplements has the potential to prevent diseases and promote health. Some studies have shown that dietary antioxidant nutrients (such as ascorbic acid, β-carotene, vitamin E and selenium) can have preventive and therapeutic effects on some metabolic diseases. However, the true impact of these dietary antioxidants and their mechanisms of action have yet to be completely elucidated.

This Special Issue is therefore focused on recent advances in the study of the health benefits of dietary antioxidants against metabolic diseases, as well as on the discovery of novel molecular therapeutic mechanisms, and the testing of novel targeted therapies. The exact active ingredient contained within an extract of natural origin must be reported in the submitted research manuscript, since papers describing the effects of mixed extractions of natural origin are not within the scope of the journal.
