An antioxidant is a molecule capable of inhibiting the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that transfers electrons from a substance to an oxidizing agent. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and in the body will drastically determine how long one will live. We have reviewed here sources of antioxidant, the network of antioxidant, supplements, causes of ageing, antiageing nutrition and different lipids based delivery system in longevity therapy. In addition to these uses of natural antioxidants in medicine, the compounds have many industrial uses, such as preservatives in food and cosmetics and preventing the degradation of rubber and gasoline. It is concluded that Novel lipid based delivery systems reviewed here possess the potential to develop as the new generation smarter carrier systems for topical delivery of antioxidants.
