Geriatric Nutrition

A section of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).

Section Information

Nutrition plays a crucial role on health throughout the life span, which can meaningfully contribute to the health status late in life. There is growing scientific and clinical interest in the role of nutritional factors as determinants of the aging process, and as key contributors to longevity and to the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases most frequently observed in old age.

The Section “Geriatric Nutrition” aims to publish high-quality scientific contributions providing novel insights into the impact of nutrition on the aging process, longevity, and on all aspects of the physical, mental, and emotional health, social issues, and wellbeing of human aging. The Section “Geriatric Nutrition” also includes high-quality scientific contributions on in vitro and animal studies investigating the link between nutrition and aging as well as age-associated diseases.
