Nutraceuticals in Life


It is when a functional food aids in the prevention and/or treatment of disease and/or disorder(s) other than anemia, it is called a Nutraceutical. Over the past few years, an increasing number of dietary supplements have become available in supermarkets and health food shops and they are also available for purchase in pharmacies.

The term “nutraceutical” is used to describe these medicinally or nutritionally functional foods. Nutraceuticals, which have also been called medical foods, designer foods, phytochemicals, functional foods and nutritional supplements, include such everyday products as “bio” yoghurts and fortified breakfast cereals, as well as vitamins, herbal remedies and even genetically modified foods and supplements.

It has been suggested that a move from dietary supplements, sold in health food shops and most pharmacies, to nutraceuticals aimed at the prescription market could occur. This would not necessarily be in manufacturers best interest, as it would limit the size of the market.

A dietary substance is for use by man to supplement the diet by increasing the total daily intake, or a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, extract, or combinations of these ingredients. Moreover a dietary supplement:

1) is intended for ingestion in pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid form

2) is not represented for use as a conventional food or as the sole item of a meal or diet

3) is labeled "dietary supplement".
