Various economic, social and environmental factors have drastically changed our lifestyle with a consequent increase in the onset of many diseases related to our uncorrected habits, such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cardiovascular pathologies and some cancers. On one hand, in recent years natural products and nutraceuticals have gained extensive attention from the scientific community for their health-promoting and disease-preventing effects. On the other hand, the general public has started to search for and buy more foods enriched in bioactive compounds, such as fruits, vegetables, dietary supplements, nutraceuticals and phytonutrients, as demonstrated by the global annual increase of the nutraceutical market of about 15%. In addition, these natural substances are used for many therapeutic outcomes.
The main purpose of the Third Edition of the Special Issue on "Nutraceuticals and Their Medicinal Importance" is to be an open forum where researchers have the chance to share their investigations and findings in this promising field and, thanks to the open access platform, increase their visibility and opportunities to interact with industries and production systems. Contributions to this issue, either in the form of original research or review articles, may cover all aspects of nutraceuticals, from their natural sources to health effects to legislation and commercialization; studies with multidisciplinary input, offering new methodologies or insights, are particularly welcome.
