About the topic

In addition to proper diets, exercise, and healthy living lifestyle, many people use dietary supplements such as vitamins, minerals, and herbal products, on a daily basis to improve their health’s or to treat their diseases.

Oxidative stress plays a significance role in pathogenesis of numerous diseases such as insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, inflammation, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancers. Due to their highly reactive properties, imbalance production and removal of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) can damage various cellular components including DNA, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and cell membranes. In addition to oxidative stress, environmental exposure, person’s immune system, alterations in epigenetics, and other factors can impact changed in genes that effect diseases’ risks and progressions.

This special issue is a collection of new knowledge and discoveries on the role of nutrition, antioxidants, and epigenetics alteration on diseases prevention or progression. Wide varieties of manuscripts from original research or review papers on the role of nutrition in prevention, treatment of certain diseases, and side effect related to deficiency or excess vitamins and minerals are going to be considered.
