Plants are a huge source of chemical compounds. Flavonoids, anthocyanins, tannins, and carotenoids represent some of the better known natural compounds.
The biological activity of natural plant compounds is expressed through their actions on the human body. Among the most important effects, we list antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antitumor, immunomodulatory, neuroprotective, antihypertensive and antidiabetic activity.
This Special Issue of Applied Sciences entitled “Biological Activity and Applications of Natural Plant Compounds” highlights the importance of the activity of natural plant compounds and the diversity of their pharmacological activities.
