Biomedical exploration in India has generally concentrated on understanding the pathogenesis and treatment of contagious conditions that beget high mortalities. Indeed in centers and universities in India, the crucial exploration programs are generally devoted towards treatment of individual conditions similar as cancer, contagious, neurological and eye conditions. In discrepancy, there are many, if any institutes that are concentrated on exploration on the process of aging and precluding or delaying age- related conditions. While an enhancement in mortal health, better medical care and advances in natural exploration has led to an increase in life expectation, there has also been an increase in the senior people that are suffering from multiple morbidities with advancing age. It has been prognosticated that 20 (300 million) of the Indian population will be over the age of 60 times in 2050 This demographic change will put both social and profitable challenges, as increase in life won't coincide with an advanced quality of life for the senior and families would need to invest a lot towards care of the senior members. Consequentially, an adding proportion of the country’s frugality will need to be allocated towards medical care of growing populations. The government of India is apprehensive of this demographic transition, as is apparent from the programs and programs that have been initiated to insure a safe future for the elderly citizens of India, still, there's a lot further to be achieved towards exploration and development of interventions that can promote healthy lifetime [1].

One of the most reproducible interventions that have been shown to enhance lifetime and health span in laboratory models is salutary restriction (DR). This robust intervention has also been shown to be associated with bettered metabolic fitness and reduction in complaint threat factors. Research in the field of salutary restriction has further advanced into a hunt for DR mimetics that can give health benefits without a reduction in food input. Some of the DR mimetic with promising translational eventuality to ameliorate the quality of life includes mTOR impediments similar as Rapamycin, Metformin, Acarbose, NAD precursors and sirtuin activators. Though, India has a long way to go towards developing pharmacological interventions to offset age- related disabilities, there's a lot to be explored in the area of Indian natural and indispensable drug. Still, in order to design and discover new healthy aging interventions, Indian experimenters and clinicians need to come together to uncover the molecular and cellular mechanisms underpinning the salutary goods of these pharmacological interventions and to test their efficacy in perfecting the quality of life [2].

Population growing affects all countries, and all income groups. To date, epidemiologists and public health professionals have contributed to this converse by examining the impact of non-communicable conditions, while gerontologists and geriatricians have been engaged in developing the study of frailty, which may represent a better public health index of growing well, and may be regarded as a measure of natural capacity in aged people, using a more negative descriptor. There has been little cross-talk between the two disciplines, performing in a situation that doesn't allow society to meet the requirements of aged people in a responsive way. The World Health Organization handed a motivation with the publication of the first World Report on Aging and Health in 2015, which emphasizes functional capacity as a main thing rather than mortality. It further proposes that functional capacity may be achieved by a combination of promoting (or braking the decline) of natural capacity. The ultimate is a product of particular factors similar as socioeconomic status, education, and life, together with physical and social environmental factors. Therefore, our response to population aging should incorporate these principles, at social and health policy situations, as well as farther downstream to units that give direct care. The papers in this special issue contribute to different angles in this converse [3].

The World Health Organization is at the same time promoting the Age-Friendly City movement, in which over 300 countries have shared to date. This conception is a major contributor to promoting functional capacity. Analysis of factors contributing to frailty in two Chinese populations with different biographies and health and social care systems give further in- depth sapience regarding strategies for the forestalment of frailty or for maintaining natural capacity. Eventually, an interesting disquisition of blue zones in China provides farther encouragement for carrying out exploration on the part of nutritive and other.
