Nutraceuticals -is this comes under pharmaceuticals?

How nutraceuticals are classified ? Does this deals with drugs ?


Its good to see people are aware of nutraceuticals✌🏻!
Well it doest not completely comes under pharama …but it combined and evolved as seperate stream.

Nutraceuticals are non specific biological therapies used to promote wellness, “Nutraceutical” was coined from “Nutrition” & “Pharmaceutical” in 1989 . It prevent malignant process and control systems . These can be grouped into the following three broad categories

  • Nutrients: Substances which have established Nutritional functions e.g. Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids, Fatty acids, etc.
  • Herbs/ Phytochemicals: Herbs or Botanical products
  • Dietary Supplements: Probiotics, Prebiotics, Antioxidents, Enzymes, etc.

Perfect information … Kaushik.
I am agreeing with his statement


Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:

Pharmaceutical supplements have high concentrations of a single or small group of vitamins and minerals, while nutraceuticals have all the benefits of natural foods.
