Current ageing research is aimed not only at the promotion of longevity, but also at improving ‎health span‎ through the‎ discovery and development‎ of new therapeutic strategies‎‏‎ by investigating ‎molecular and ‎cellular ‎pathways involved in cellular senescence.‎ Understanding the mechanism of action ‎of ‎polyphenolic compounds targeting mTOR (mechanistic target of rapamycin) and related pathways opens up new directions ‎‎to revolutionize ways to slow down the ‎onset and development of age-dependent degeneration. Herein, we will ‎discuss the mechanisms by which polyphenols can delay the‎ molecular ‎pathogenesis of ageing via manipulation or more specifically inhibition of mTOR-signaling pathways. We will also discuss the implications of polyphenols in targeting mTOR and its related ‎pathways‎‎ on ‎health life span extension and longevity.‎
