Natural Products in Prevention and Therapy of Metabolic Syndrome
Metabolic syndrome is a complex cluster of metabolic disorders, which increase a patient’s risk of developing diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases, the main causes of morbidity and mortality in the world. Despite the availability of many pharmacotherapies, new classes of pharmacological agents capable of reducing overall risk are needed. An accumulating number of studies have indicated that some natural products or molecules are able to modulate metabolic syndrome and its risk factors. This Topic aims to identify and review the latest natural products or molecules that can prevent and treat metabolic syndrome and its risk factors.
