Abstract Genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors primarily determine the lifespan of humans. From these, nutrition is a key component affecting our health, and several studies particularly in model organisms and rodents have shown that nutrition has also the potential to increase lifespan. This review, therefore, aimed to summarize and discuss the most important nutritional components and diets which have been repeatedly associated with longevity. A brief summary of mechanistic factors… 
Nutrients and Pathways that Regulate Health Span and Life Span
TLDR
A summary of the main molecular mechanisms by which different nutritional conditions, i.e., specific nutrient abundance or restriction, may affect health span and life span is provided.
Carbohydrates as Nutritional Components for Health and Longevity
TLDR
Both quality and quantity of carbohydrates notably modifies health, aging, and longevity.
Personalized nutrition and healthy aging.
TLDR
Big data techniques are needed to analyze and integrate the relevant omics with an objective and longitudinal capture of individual nutritional and environmental information to offer actionable, personalized health recommendations to transform the promise of personalized nutrition into reality.

TLDR
There is a need for more prospective and clinical studies on anti-inflammatory foods in ageing and longevity, and it is important to consider that explaining the relation between diet, low-grade chronic inflammation, and ageing not only depends on a single food component in the concept of anti- inflammatory food, but also dietary pattern.
Whole-Grain Intake in the Mediterranean Diet and a Low Protein to Carbohydrates Ratio Can Help to Reduce Mortality from Cardiovascular Disease, Slow Down the Progression of Aging, and to Improve Lifespan: A Review
TLDR
The purpose of the review was to analyze cohort and case-control studies that investigated the effects of cereals in the diet, especially whole grains and derivatives as well as the effect of a diet with a low protein–carbohydrate ratio on the progression of aging, mortality, and lifespan.
Fungal-Derived Mycoprotein and Health across the Lifespan: A Narrative Review
TLDR
Main findings showed that fungal mycoprotein could contribute to an array of health benefits across the lifespan including improved lipid profiles, glycaemic markers, dietary fibre intakes, satiety effects and muscle/myofibrillar protein synthesis.
Metabolomics Study of Isocaloric Different Dietary Patterns on the Life Span in Healthy Population
TLDR
Without consideration of the nature of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, IHP and IHC diets might shorten life span by influencing amino acid metabolism, lipid metabolism and tricarboxylic acid cycle metabolism, while the isocaloric IHF diet has no effects on longevity.

TLDR
How AA requirements are shaped and how ingested AAs regulate a spectrum of homeostatic processes are discussed, and the resulting opportunity to develop nutritional strategies to improve human health during aging is highlighted.
Calorie restriction in humans: An update
Extending Healthy Life Span—From Yeast to Humans
TLDR
Dietary restriction and reduced activity of nutrient-sensing pathways may slow aging by similar mechanisms, which have been conserved during evolution, and their potential application to prevention of age-related disease and promotion of healthy aging in humans, and the challenge of possible negative side effects.
