Abstract

Community health authorities consider prevention and treatment with Nutraceuticals as a powerful tool in maintaining health and to act against nutritionally induced acute and chronic diseases, thereby promoting most advantageous health, endurance and quality of life. Nutraceutical is a term coined to describe substances which are not traditionally recognized nutrients but which have positive physiological effects on the human body. They do not easily fall into the legal category of food and drug and often inhabit a grey area between the two. This review article describes the concepts, categories and approaches of the Nutraceuticals in different diseases, Nutraceuticals are intended to play a significant role in future therapeutic development. Many bioactive constituents of food have been commercialized in the form of pharmaceutical products i.e. pills, capsules, solutions, gels, liquors, powders, granulates, etc, that incorporate food extracts or photochemical-enriched extracts to which a beneficial physiological function has been directly or indirectly attributed. A place for Nutraceuticals in clinical practice is emerging, but important pharmaceutical and clinical issues must to be addressed by advance research.
