Special Issue:

Plant Polyphenols against Degenerative Diseases
We regularly consume foods such as fruits, vegetables, and seeds containing natural plant compounds called polyphenols. Polyphenols have many uses in functional food, food supplements, nutraceuticals, nutricosmetics and medicine. The expanding antioxidant and bioactive potentials of polyphenols in the context of public health, in particular, to combat degenerative diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, or Alzheimer's disease, will be the main topic of this special issue. Yet the current special edition will also take the opposite perspective into account. Although the majority of in vitro and in-cellulo investigations are conclusive, assessing these beneficial benefits at the living organisms’ level can be more difficult. Several clinical or epidemiological investigations challenge some of these results in this regard. In nutrition science or disease prevention strategies, further considerations about their active concentrations and/or potential cocktail effects are rarely covered.
The goal of the special issue " Plant Polyphenols against Degenerative Diseases" is to present the most recent findings on plant polyphenols, their physiological functions, and potential medical applications. It also aims to discuss the justification of novel uses of plant extracts or purified polyphenols that result in applications in modern medicine and provide some reflections on future prospects.
This special issue will examine original articles, review papers, critical reviews, opinion papers, and controversial views on this topic.
