Nutritional strategies for successful aging.

Abstract

With increasing life expectancy in developed and developing countries, maintaining health and function in old age has become an important goal, including avoidance or optimal control of chronic diseases; maintenance or retarding the decline of physical and cognitive function; optimizing psychological health; and maintaining independent functioning in tasks related to self-care and societal interaction. This article discusses all of those, as well as other components of successful aging such as social network and socioeconomic status.
