AIMS AND SCOPE
The International Journal of Integrative Physiology and Nutritional Sciences (IJIPNS) is a peer-reviewed journal in the field of nutrition and physiology. The journal accepts high-quality research articles, reviews, and short communications in the field of metabolic disorders, complementary and alternative medicines, gut microbiota and its role in maintaining overall health, nutrition, pharmacognosy, pharmaceutics, and phytochemistray. Some of the broad areas of IJIPNS are:
- Experimental studies related to Obesity and associated metabolic disorders such as diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, liver disorders, and gut health
- Mechanism of action of various herbal extracts and natural plants in humans or animal models
- In vitro studies about anti-oxidant and anti-diabetic effects of herbs or pure photochemicals
- New advancements in the field of nutrition and nutraceuticals
- Role of nutraceuticals supplements in the management of various lifestyle-related disorders
- Animal and humain microbiota and metagenomics
- Physiological and psychological adaptations in extreme environments: If we want to simply depict what extreme environments are, we can consider them as majorly depending on two parameters: Temperature and Pressure. Both can also be submitted to gravitational changes.As a matter of fact, both dimensions are also well linked together. Depending on those two parameters, hydration, gas partial pressures, effort, work of breathing, metabolism and many other essential “ingredients” of human life and performance can vary a lot.Human studies in extremes environments (altitude hypoxia, microgravity, hyperbaric, and terrestrial extreme climatic conditions) during the last decades have expanded knowledge in physiology, highlighting new routes of regulation, breaking previous old concepts, and offering models of some physiopathological troubles in patients. On the psychological side, some psychological aspects have been explored independently or sometimes combined with physiology, little is known about cognition and neuronal plasticity in extreme environments, although adaptation to extremes is an integrative matter that the body and brain have to solve conjointly. How do peripheral body signals, homeothermic regulation, energy expenditure, and psychological and cognitive functions interact with each other?
- However, the journal is open to any research which leads to significant advancements in the field of integrative physiology and nutritional sciences.
