Poster Information
Abstract: Nutraceuticals are a group of products that are more than food but less than pharmaceuticals. Unfortunately there is still no internationally accepted definition of these products therefore their judgement varies country by country . In most countries nutraceuticals are taken as part of dietary supplements .Frequency of nutraceuticals use is 50%-70% in developed countries' population and this number is increasing by the age. Ladies use more nutraceuticals than man. From a safety point of view nutraceuticals are trusted products even if they are not approved by authorities like pharmaceuticals. With a lot of nutraceuticals clinical studies have been carried out and results originating from these trials support their effectiveness as well as their general safety . Nutraceuticals represent however a certain risk if they were to be used without medical control as interactions with medication can be harmful, especially in vulnerable( old, very young, chronically sick) populations. Example from fish oil preparations, prebiotics, and probiotics are reviewed.Summary: Nutraceutical Product is a food or fortified food product that not only supplements the diet but also assists in treating or preventing disease ( apart from anemia), so provides medical benefits. Nutraceuticals are not tested and regulated to the extent of pharmaceutical drug .References: abuse »
