Special Issue "The Role of Dietary Whole Grain and Its Phytochemicals in Diabetes, Insulin Resistance and Obesity"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 March 2022.
Interests: whole grain; phytochemicals; obesity; diabetes; health benefits; synergistic or antagonistic action
I am honored to have the opportunity to invite you to contribute your research work to Nutrients.
Whole grains are considered part of a healthy and sustainable diet because they can contribute to maintaining a healthy weight; reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and bowel cancer; and promote the stability and diversity of intestinal flora, thereby reducing the risk of intestinal diseases. Many countries around the world encourage their residents to consume as much whole grains as possible.
This special issue in order to provide readers with more information about different varieties of whole grains and the role of their phytochemicals in the health benefits attributed to these foods. The goal of this Special Issue is to highlight novel research findings on reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, metabolism modulation, gut microbiota dysbiosis, etc.
We welcome submissions of original research articles, reviews, and mini-reviews focusing on but not limited to the following topics:
- Animal and clinical studies on dietary whole grains and their phytochemicals and their influence on abnormal glucose metabolism, lipid metabolism, gut microbiota, and any other relevant health outcomes.
- Synergistic or antagonistic action between different whole grains or their phytochemicals on metabolism modulation and gut microbiota dysbiosis.
