Dear Colleagues,

Nutrition is the basic foundation of homeostasis and health, and a bulwark against disease and dysfunction. Healthy aging, therefore, depends upon nutrition as much as on other aspects of health care. The Blue Zones of the world, located in Costa Rica, Greece, Italy, Japan,and USA are testimony to the salutogenic effect of nutrition on aging. We therefore launch a special supplement, titled Healthy Aging and Nutrition, to collate evidence, experience and expertise on this important topic. Original research, brief communications and letters, on basic scientific, dietary, culinary and clinical aspects of nutrition and aging are welcome. We expect a compendium of articles which will serve as a preferred reference of information, and resource for insights related to this field. We wish you useful and fruitful reading, and your patients, happy aging through healthy nutrition.

Prof. Nitin Kapoor & Dr. Sanjay Kalra
