Abstract

In this Special Issue on “Nutraceuticals: Molecular and Functional Insights into how Natural Products Nourish the Brain”, the editors bring together contributions from experts in nutraceutical research to provide a contemporary overview of how select chemically identified molecules from natural products can beneficially affect brain function at the molecular level. Other contributions address key emergent issues such as bioavailability, neuronal health, inflammation and the holistic benefit of multi-targeted actions that impact upon how nutraceuticals ultimately leverage the brain to function better. In terms of the benefit of nutraceuticals it is clear that some naturally occurring molecules can be advantageous to both the young and aged brain, and that they have actions that ultimately can be directed to aid either in the improvement of cognition or in the management of debilitating neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric conditions.
