The term ‘aging’ relates to degeneration of the body due to damage occurring to the macromolecules, cells, tissues and organs. Considering this, when a food is said to have anti-aging properties, it has one or more of the possible anti-aging mechanisms:
a. Periodically replacing the damaged tissue with a healthy one.
b. Bringing about the molecular repair of degenerated cells and tissues.
c. Anti-oxidation i.e. decreasing the rate of free radical production and the subsequent damage to cell DNA.
