Nutraceuticals & Medicinal Foods
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 foods. They can be considered non-specific biological therapies used to promote general well-being, control symptoms and prevent malignant processes. The term “nutraceutical” is a combination of two words: “nutrient” (a nourishing food component) and “pharmaceutical” (a medical drug).
