In the last several years, the importance of balanced dietary patterns in human health has been widely recognized. Dietary guidelines around the world recommend the increased consumption of fruits and vegetables, as good sources of dietary fiber, essential nutrients, and phytochemicals, to improve health and reduce the risk of several chronic diseases, including metabolic disorder, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and some types of cancer. In this context, numerous studies have demonstrated the wide biological properties exerted by dietary phytochemicals, highlighting their beneficial role both in the prevention and in the treatment of several pathological conditions.
This Special Issue will include manuscripts, in the form of original research or review articles, that cover all aspects of the complex relationship between dietary polyphenols and human health, ranging from their bioavailability and gut microbiota interaction to the molecular mechanisms through which these compounds exert their health benefits. Studies with multidisciplinary input, offering new mechanisms or insights, are particularly welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
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.
