Obesity is a complex chronic disease defined by excessive adiposity that impairs health. Obesity not only increases the risk of metabolic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and fatty liver diseases but also produces a chronic inflammatory state which leads to many complications. Recent studies have demonstrated that increased fat deposition in obesity may play a role in, or be a result of, excessive oxidative stress in the body.
Antioxidants derived from nature can modulate oxidative stress. Natural antioxidants are widely distributed in food and medicinal plants. These natural antioxidants exhibit a wide range of biological effects, including anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, anti-obesity, and anti-cancer. The consumption of natural antioxidants can ameliorate oxidative stress-induced damage by inhibiting the oxidative chain reaction via a free radical scavenging process.
Thus, the search for these natural antioxidants will provide an advance in therapeutic interventions for obesity and related diseases. An understanding of the mechanism of action of natural antioxidants in redox modulation could be useful to prevent or develop therapies for obesity and related diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, fatty liver diseases, inflammatory diseases, or even cancer.
The first edition of our Special Issue on ‘Natural Antioxidants in Obesity and Related Diseases’ successfully invited seven original papers and five reviews (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/antioxidants/special_issues/GP1Z6Q4A36). Following its success, we are ready to introduce the second Edition.
The aim of this Special Issue "Natural Antioxidants in Obesity and Related Diseases—2nd Edition" is to bring together valuable studies including reviews and original articles on multidisciplinary approaches to obesity, especially by focusing on the antioxidant properties of natural products. We will highlight the molecular mechanisms of antioxidants involved in the prevention of obesity-related diseases.
