Special Issue in Life: Current Updates on Microbiota Restoration and Modulation by Functional Products
Natural compounds are a source of antioxidants for all living organisms. The mechanisms by which they act at the cellular level are fairly renowned, but in order to manifest their activity, to contribute to the reduction in oxidative stress, and to implicitly reduce the chances of developing chronic diseases, they must reach the cellular level. The main sources of antioxidants are food (fruits, vegetables, teas, coffee, and mushrooms) and dietary supplements. Many of these compounds are degraded and/or transformed as they pass through the digestive tract and most of them are excreted. Due to these reasons, finding new transport and delivery systems for antioxidants is an up-to-date research direction with immediate benefits. Moreover, the modulation process of the microbiota fingerprint represents an interesting way of enhancing the functional properties and bioavailability of certain bioactive compounds. These aspects are important for large groups of the population affected by chronic diseases and potentiate the classic medication.
In this Special Issue, called "Delivery Systems on the Antioxidant Activity of Natural Bioactive Compounds", authors are invited to present original research articles, review papers, clinical case reports, or communications.

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. Pharmaceutics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2900 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.
