Nutraceutics is a term derived from “nutrition” and “pharmaceutics”. The term is applied to products that are isolated from herbal products, dietary supplements (nutrients), specific diets, and processed foods such as cereals, soups, and beverages that, in addition to being nutritional, are also used for medicinal purposes.
Scientific research has demonstrated a wide variety of biological properties and physiological benefits of dietary phytochemicals, highlighting their promising role in the prevention and treatment of several diseases (e.g., diabetes, infection, renal, and gastrointestinal disorders) with consequences on quality of life and longevity.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish original research papers and/or relevant updates of literature data, on the beneficial effects of nutraceutics in metabolic and gastrointestinal disorders.
