Nutraceutics is a neologism resulting from "nutrition" and "pharmaceutical"; it was used in 1989 for the first time, and nutraceuticals are the set of nutritional principles contained in food and developing healthy effects on individuals. They are found in nature, but not in sufficient quantity to obtain benefits.
Ancient civilizations were fully aware of the value of food and Hippocrates suggested "Let food be your medicine and your medicine be food".
But the elements present in our usual food do not have adequate concentration to fulfill Hippocrates suggestions.
Active ingredients present in nutraceutical products are derived from plants, foods and microbial sources, and wise use tends to prevent chronic diseases, improve health, delay aging process and increase life expectancy.
