Nutritional status has been implicated to be in the pathogenesis of noncommunicable diseases and long-term
worldwide survival. In this relevance, the teachings of Bhagwatgita, Upanishads and Indian Vedas appear to be as
old as ‘Human Civilization’. The dietary formulations concomitant with relevant prescriptions provided in these scriptures
appear to be as scientific as observed in cohort studies and intervention trials. These studies confirm the ancient concept
reflecting that fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and milk were quite protective. In this review, the traditional concepts
of nutrition to western literature have been duly introduced.
