In a study published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, the biology of ageing and the role of antioxidants was further analysed.
The study noted: “Interest in the relationship between diet and ageing is growing with research showing that dietary calorie restriction and some antioxidants extend lifespan in various ageing models.
“Various antioxidants including tea catechins, theaflavins, apple polyphenols, black rice anthocyanins, and blueberry polyphenols have been shown to be capable of extending the lifespan of fruit flies.
“Many natural antioxidants, nutraceuticals, and functional foods have been identified as free radical or active oxygen scavengers.
Functional foods, drinks and nutraceuticals which possess the antioxidant activity may play an important role in delaying the ageing process.”
