Book Description

Aging can be perceived differently during different times in one’s life. Aging as a process is not only influencing medical and economic dimensions at an indiviual level but also at the societal and national level. Aging is a natural process, however its standard definition in healthcare context is yet unclear. To delay the aging process and to live quality of life until end of age, are two goals of prime importance. Various healthcare approaches are being thought and experimented to best manage aging as if a disease.


Nutraceuticals are value added dietary supplement products and have an immense potential in altering key structures and functions of aging. Nutraceuticals can be a keystone in altering sub-normal performing physiological and metabolical systems due to aging.
