Aging is a multi-faceted process involving numerous molecular and cellular mechanisms that impact multiple organ systems. The effects of aging on the immune system manifest as a decreased ability to fight infection, diminished response to vaccination, increased incidence of cancer, higher prevalence of autoimmunity and pervasive low-grade inflammation. Building and maintaining robust immunity and resilience requires an understanding of the mechanisms and Hallmarks of Aging, immuno-senescence and inflammaging as well as targeted lifestyle, dietary, nutraceutical and botanical interventions that contribute to both increased lifespan and health-span. An overview of the Golden Pearls of Longevity from Traditional and Modern Chinese Medicine will also be included in our discussion.
