The impact of dietary factors on health and longevity is increasingly appreciated. The most prominent dietary factor that affects the risk of many different chronic diseases is energy intake -- excessive calorie intake increases the risk. Reducing energy intake by controlled caloric restriction or intermittent fasting increases lifespan and protects various tissues against disease, in part, by hormesis mechanisms that increase cellular stress resistance. Some specific dietary components may… Expand
The hormetic role of dietary antioxidants in free radical-related diseases.
TLDR
This work has shown that regular consumption of cruciferous vegetables or spices is associated with a reduced incidence of cancer and reduction of markers for neurodegenerative damage, and greater health benefit may be obtained from raw as opposed to cooked vegetables. Expand
Beneficial effects of mild stress (hormetic effects): dietary restriction and health.
TLDR
DR may be used, therefore, as a novel approach for therapeutic intervention in several diseases, when detailed information about effects of mild dietary stress on human health is obtained from clinical trials. Expand
Dietary restriction and aging in rodents: a current view on its molecular mechanisms.
TLDR
Genetic and molecular dissection of the mechanisms underlying the effects of DR will provide knowledge of the basic aging processes, as well as insights into the development of DR mimetics, to extend the healthy lifespan in humans. Expand
Stress Response of Dietary Phytochemicals in a Hormetic Manner for Health and Longevity
TLDR
The stress response of dietary phytochemicals will be systematically examined in a hormetic manner for delay of age-related diseases, healthy aging, and longevity based on current data. Expand
Hormesis as a Mechanism for the Anti-Aging Effects of Calorie Restriction
Hormesis in aging is represented by stress-induced stimulation of protective mechanisms and strengthened homeostasis/homeodynamics. Since calorie restriction (CR) generally stimulates variousExpand
Lifespan and Healthspan Extension by Nutraceuticals: An Overview
TLDR
The main molecular targets of nutraceuticals are discussed and an overview of their effects on the lifespan of experimental model organisms are provided to encourage more in-depth and well-controlled clinical and epidemiological studies to better define the potential healthspan-promoting effects of these compounds. Expand
Calorie restriction as an intervention in ageing
TLDR
The present revision of Calorie restriction (CR) focuses on the general effect of CR and other mimetics in longevity, focusing especially on the cardiovascular system and skeletal muscle. Expand
Revisión Resveratrol : an ergogenic compound
Human sedentary lifestyle is the main responsible of the increase of the risk for cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity and other metabolic diseases. Then, it is very important to find someExpand
NRF2 and the Phase II Response in Acute Stress Resistance Induced by Dietary Restriction.
TLDR
A review of the potential role of the redox-sensing transcription factor NF-E2-related factor 2 (NRF2) and its control of the evolutionarily conserved antioxidant/redox cycling and detoxification systems, collectively known as the Phase II response, in the adaptive response to DR. Expand
Resveratrol: an ergogenic compound
TLDR
It is proposed here that healthier lifestyle based on moderate exercise and an equilibrated diet together with the use of natural ergogenic compounds can be the key factors for healthy aging and the therapy for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Expand

Caloric restriction and intermittent fasting: Two potential diets for successful brain aging
TLDR
Evidence is described suggesting that two dietary interventions, caloric restriction (CR) and intermittent fasting (IF), can prolong the health-span of the nervous system by impinging upon fundamental metabolic and cellular signaling pathways that regulate life-span. Expand
Energy restriction and aging
TLDR
Detailed analyses from controlled human trials involving long-term calorie restriction will allow investigators to link observed alterations in body composition down to changes in molecular pathways and gene expression, with their possible effects on the biomarkers of aging. Expand
Oxidation, lipoproteins, and atherosclerosis: which is wrong, the antioxidants or the theory?
TLDR
By this standard there is no basis to recommend antioxidant use, beyond what is inherent to the ‘heart healthy’ diet in order to benefit cardiovascular health, and guidelines for diet should adhere closely to what has been clinically proved. Expand
A neural signaling triumvirate that influences ageing and age-related disease: insulin/IGF-1, BDNF and serotonin
The ageing process and its associated diseases all involve perturbed energy metabolism, oxidative damage, and an impaired ability of the organism and its cells to cope with adversity. We propose thatExpand
Modulation of transcription factors by curcumin.
TLDR
Evidence indicates that the divergent effects of curcumin are dependent on its pleiotropic molecular effects, which include the regulation of signal transduction pathways and direct modulation of several enzymatic activities. Expand
Nutrient control of glucose homeostasis through a complex of PGC-1α and SIRT1
TLDR
It is shown that the Sir2 homologue, SIRT1 controls the gluconeogenic/glycolytic pathways in liver in response to fasting signals through the transcriptional coactivator PGC-1α, and this findings have strong implications for the basic pathways of energy homeostasis, diabetes and lifespan. Expand

TLDR
Data indicating that rodents subjected to caloric restriction display lower tumor incidence, reduced susceptibility to carcinogens and extended lifespan is analyzed and the potential role of the growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor type 1 (IGF-I) axis is discussed. Expand
n-3 fatty acids and the metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
The use of n-3 PUFAs should be considered in more global strategies including changes in lifestyle, such as adhering to a healthy Mediterranean type of diet and practicing regular physical exercise. Expand
Dietary deprivation extends lifespan in Caenorhabditis elegans
TLDR
The first evidence that long‐term DD, instead of being detrimental, can extend lifespan of a multicellular adult organism is presented, suggesting that DD and DR share some downstream effectors. Expand

TLDR
Clinical studies that provide information about possible in vivo changes in antioxidant status with fruit and vegetable consumption are provided and a potential role for food flavonoids and polyphenolics as antioxidants is discussed. Expand
