The study of the microbiota represents an interesting way to study evolution and alleviate major human pathologies like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, or neurodegenerative pathologies. Gut microbiota modulation through the administration of functional products (probiotics or natural products) could determine important changes in imbalanced physiological functions that lead to health problems. This Special Issue intends to collect papers presenting new in vitro/in vivo research works that valorize different products or processes to assess microbiota restoration and modulation. Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that could influence microbiota patterns should be considered in the submitted papers, as they represent major factors that could reduce microbial imbalances in degenerative diseases. Microbiota bioactivity influences the gut–brain axis, and targeting this interaction could be an important way of supporting and controlling regenerative capacity. Special attention will be given to studies that present molecular mechanisms and biomarkers related to the microbiota fermentative processes (e.g., short-chain fatty acids) and other factors resulting from microbiota modulation (antioxidant potential).

Manuscript Submission Information
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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
