The finding that antioxidants promote longevity or fight ageing-associated diseases is a fundamental validation of the oxidative stress theory of ageing. However, this statement is frequently turned upside down, becoming something different: A corollary of the oxidative theory of ageing is the intake of antioxidants retards ageing and increases lifespan. Because of this circular argumentation, the term antioxidant is commonly believed to be synonymous with anti-ageing, and antioxidant food is a claim for healthy food.
Several evidences indicate that antioxidants exert very different effects depending on the amounts and the experimental system. The benefits of counteracting oxidative signals to cure cancer or myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury is controversial. Then, taking antioxidants with food or as nutraceutical supplements, systemic effects, bioavailability, derived metabolites and interactions have to be considered before drawing conclusions.
In this Special Issue, original research reports and updated literature reviews make the point on the state of the knowledge on the role of antioxidants in ageing.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Antioxidants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
