Nutraceuticals: let 3 most important advantages work for you!
Nutraceuticals combine the benefits of nutrition and pharmaceuticals. Also from those two words (nutrient and pharmaceutical) the name of these products is derived. They are used to improve health, prevent chronic diseases, or to support the structure or function of the body. These products can be single nutrients like Vitamin C. Or they can be in a form of multiple vitamin/mineral combined together. They may be considered, in some cases, as a safe alternative for pharmaceuticals.

01. Nutracuticals provide health benefits in concentrated form
Nutraceuticals are made from food but sold in the form we usually do not associate with food but with medicine, i.e.. pills, capsules, liquid, powder, gel etc. Nutraceuticals provide medical, health or physiological benefits other than pure nutrition, such as the prevention and treatment of disease.
These products can be single nutrients (Vitamin C). They also can be dietary supplements such as a multiple vitamins and/or mineral combined together.
The food it is made from has some health or physiological function itself, but nutraceuticals are produced in isolated or concentrated form.

03. Nutraceuticals as antioxidants may have anti-aging effect
Besides to prevent the chronical diseases nutraceuticals may delay the aging process.
Over time, the living organism undergoes the structural and functional changes. We call this changes aging process.
There are interesting findings in relationship between diet and aging. For example, dietary antioxidants (such as adaptogens, coenzyme Q10, isoflavones, anthocyanins, probiotics, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E) and various microelements (manganese, zinc, selenium, iron) help to slow down this aging process.
