Recent advances in the field of caloric restriction mimetics and anti-aging molecules

Caloric restriction (CR) mimetics are molecules that produce beneficial effects on health and longevity in model organisms and humans, without the challenges of maintaining a CR diet.

We review here novel CR mimetics and anti-aging compounds, such as 4,4′-dimethoxychalcone, fungal polysaccharides, inorg
