What are Nutraceuticals?
Nutraceuticals is a broad term used to describe any product derived from food sources with extra health benefits in addition to the basic nutritional value found in everyday foods. They can be considered non-specific biological therapies used to promote general well-being, control symptoms, and sometimes mitigate malignant processes.
The philosophy behind nutraceuticals is a focus on prevention. According to the Greek physician Hippocrates who is regarded as the father of medicine, “let food be your medicine.” Nutraceutical’s role in human nutrition is one of the most important areas of investigation, with wide-raging implications for consumers, health-care providers, regulators, food producers, and distributors.
Nutraceuticals have attracted considerable interest due to their potential nutritional, safety, and potential therapeutic effects. They may exert a role in any number of biological processes, including antioxidant defenses, cell proliferation, gene expression, and safeguarding of mitochondrial integrity and have been shown to impose crucial roles in immune status and susceptibility to certain disease states. They also exhibit potential disease modifying effects related to oxidative stress including allergy, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular diseases, renal and gastrointestinal disorders, certain cancer, eye conditions, Parkinson’s diseases, and obesity.
Thus – nutraceuticals may be used to improve health, prevent chronic diseases, postpone the aging process (or increase life expectancy), or just support functions and integrity of the body.
