Substantial affirmation suggested that oxidative stress remains an impelling target, contributing to initiate and exacerbate the multiple neurological complications in age-related neurodegeneration (ARN). Factors including gene and environmental toxins are now becoming the most threatening cause of oxidative stress, which leads to mitochondrial dysfunction of the neurons that ultimately causes permanent loss of their functionality. Clinical trials on antioxidants are still in the pipeline to access them as a potential therapeutic class. But this raised the generosity for not only to investigate the module of the antioxidant mechanism but also to justify the drug delivery and dose regimen. Biological barriers, predominantly, Blood-brain barrier (BBB) and rapid firstpass metabolism, are some of the potential obstacles for the effective targeting of the therapeutic agent. Bioactive drugs with antioxidant capacity, loaded with lipid-based Nano career system have revealed to be a novel therapeutic intervention for ARN. The review will deal with the comprehensive state-of-art methodology for the delivery of bioactive loaded lipid Nanocarriers to treat neurodegeneration. A systematic analysis of published reports will help the researchers to understand the role of natural compound loaded Nanoengineered system in the field of ARN as a potential Nano therapeutic intervention.

Keywords: Antioxidant, blood brain barrier, drug delivery, nano career, neurodegeneration, oxidative stress.
