Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As the world's population ages, it has become increasingly important to investigate the relationship between diet, exercise, and performance and their impact on the health and well-being of seniors. Previous research has demonstrated that a balanced diet and regular exercise can enhance physical and cognitive function and improve overall health in older adults. This Special Issue will provide a platform for researchers to present their state-of-the-art research on healthy aging. We are seeking original research articles, reviews, and meta-analyses that examine the effects of various dietary interventions on seniors' muscle mass, strength, and physical performance, as well as the effects of different types of exercise on cognitive function, memory, attention, mood, and the risk of cognitive decline and dementia in seniors. Additionally, we are interested in studies investigating the effects of different training programs on seniors' muscle strength, balance, coordination, and overall physical performance. This Special Issue aims to provide valuable insights into the critical focus areas and inform future interventions and programs to enhance the health and well-being of older individuals.
