Damage from oxidative stress is a key etiological factor in the development of several colorectal disorders, and natural antioxidants are potential products to control, prevent or treat these diseases. Recent progress in phytotherapy research and complementary medicine approaches using natural compounds and herbal preparations with antioxidant properties is currently associated with the development of new strategies to treat several colorectal diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as colitis and Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), colorectal cancer and colon polyps.
However, rational and evidence-based pharmacology and toxicology data of natural products are required as the basis for further investigations focusing on the development of new complementary therapies of diseases affecting the colon and rectum.
This Special Issue is aimed at highlighting recent achievements, findings and research data concerning antioxidant natural products to prevent or treat colorectal disorders, based on preclinical and clinical studies and molecular evaluation of differential antioxidant mechanisms of action.
The research papers and reviews of this Special Issue are expected to provide an overview of the current status of research on natural products with antioxidant properties in colorectal diseases, including, but not necessarily restricted to, chemical compounds of plant origin (alkaloids, terpenes, flavonoids, tannins and others), chemical compounds from other natural sources, herbal standardized preparations, vitamins, peptides, micronutrients, endogenous antioxidant mediators, non-starch polysaccharides, mineral supplements, probiotics, postbiotics, prebiotics and standardized formulations containing functional foods or by-products.
We encourage authors to submit the results of clinical and preclinical in vivo, ex vivo, in vitro and in silico studies focusing on the efficacy, safety and quality control of herbal preparations and purified compounds with antioxidant properties that are potentially useful to control and treat colorectal diseases.
We look forward to your contributions.
