Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nature has been a source of inspiration for pharmacists for centuries, and plant extracts with high health-promoting potential are of interest to many scientists. Significant advances in research methods, which allow the discovery of ever newer, previously unknown bioactive substances have also contributed to increased interest in this field. The epidemic of chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs) is a major social problem, generating high costs for society. Appropriate prevention, for example, through changes in lifestyle and immune support using naturally occurring substances with powerful therapeutic effects seems to be the only reasonable route.
