Aging is the process of life which includes progressive physiological and anatomical changes in various systems of body. The proposed study aims to describe various anatomical and physiological changes that occur in old age. Aging process brings about various changes in every system of the body such as cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary, nervous, endocrine, reproductive and musculoskeletal. Through the critical analysis of the literature it is found that Ayurveda has given remedies to avoid jara (old age) state of life in the form of rasayan (rejuvenation) drugs, adopting dincharya (daily routine follow up), by avoiding suppression of various adharniya vegas (urges), yogic process and pranayama.
