Nowadays, the leading cause of death worldwide is cardiovascular disease (CVD) and hypertension is one of their major risk factors, suffered by one in four adults. Therefore, the reduction of its prevalence is one of the global targets to be attained. Phytochemicals present in food and agri-food by-products such as phenolic compounds and bioactive peptides have shown to be effective for controlling blood pressure and, improving CVD. These antihypertensive compounds obtained from natural sources have emerged as an excellent alternative to synthetic drugs, and are highly demanded, and searched.
The aim of this special issue is to collect original research manuscripts, meta-analysis and reviews dealing with the beneficial effect of bioactive compounds on hypertension. We invite clinicians and researchers to submit relevant scientific work to this Special Issue. Original research manuscripts, both using human and animal models, focused on the search and evaluation of antihypertensive compounds from diets, as well as original products, extracts, and single molecules from plants, food and agri-food by-products will be considered. Moreover, the in vitro or in vivo studies to elucidate the involved mechanisms in the antihypertensive effect of different bioactive compounds will be also welcomed.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
