Aging is associated with multiple changes to all systems of the body. These include declined secretion of hormones, alterations in the immune system that shift towards the pro-inflammatory side, changes in cell signaling, chromosomal changes and alterations in the body’s ability to rid the body of dead cells just to name a few.

There has always been an interest in finding the “fountain of youth”, the magic pill that unlocks the secrets to prevent aging or whatever claims exist at the time to make you look younger. However, aging is part of the human life cycle and certainly understanding the causes of aging and what lifestyle modifications can be made are ongoing.
