    aging is an inevitable biological complex process. It involves the gradual loss of cellular vitality due to accumulative damage to cellular macromolecules by reactive oxygen species (ROS). These ROS are highly implicated in health, disease, and lifespan. The biochemical pathways involved in the aging process are highly influenced by both exogenous (environmental factors) and endogenous stress factors. These cellular processes are the same in most organisms including the fruit fly, nematode, yeast, mammalian cell line, and rodents. These model organisms have been extensively used in the screening of potent antioxidant botanicals for anti-aging bioactivity. Moringa oleifera and Ananas sativa are great sources of health-promoting nutrients and antioxidants, however, their anti-aging impact is still an evolving area of research interest. Therefore, this review focused on their anti-aging mode of action and some other anti-aging nutriceuticals in different model organisms including the fruit fly. PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS: Staying forever young and healthy is everyone's right. Aside from genetic trait, healthy feeding is peculiar to the world's longest-living people. Ananas sativa (pineapple) and Moringa oleifera leaves are highly valued fruit and herb with nourishing, antioxidant, and medicinal properties. Their extract exhibit antioxidant, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging activities. The ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans used Moringa seed oil for cosmetics and perfumes. Moringa tea leaves is consumed for its nutritive and medicinal value. Its antioxidant potency endorses its use for anti-aging and other health-promoting purposes. The bioactive compound in pineapple, bromelain, promotes wound healing and it is a component of postsurgical applications due to its anti-inflammatory property. Consumption of Ananas fruit provides the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, a potent antioxidant. To identify new anti-aging bioactive compounds of therapeutic importance, and understanding the mode of action of these nutriceuticals will contribute to new anti-aging research prospects. © 2020 Wiley Periodicals LLC.
