The Nutraceutical Potential


The Nutraceutical Potential

There is currently an increasing demand for the production of nutraceuticals due to claims that these drugs provide better health benefits than conventional drugs. Subsequently, people are having renewed interest in personal healthcare products, as well as food and dietary supplements. With this, the need for preventive healthcare and innovative medicine is wanted in the market.

Dietary supplements provide alternative on lowering medicinal expenses. They prevent the formation of diseases at a lower cost, avoiding the need for excessive spending on different kinds of treatment.

Nutraceuticals contain nutrients derived from food products which are then formulated into different kinds of dosage forms. The definition of these drugs depends on their source - from natural resources, chemical syntheses, and pharmacological conditions.

Nutraceuticals are mostly produced from the growth of whole grains, tropical fruits, and other sources that embody large foundations of vitamins and minerals. They are harvested and subjected to certain processes for the removal of active ingredients, which are formulated into different dosage forms for patient intake.

Different kinds of synthetic processes are another way to manufacture nutraceuticals. These usually include fermentation processes for producing the desired product. There are certain types of microorganisms that can be cultured to include nutrients and are then incorporated to food, serving as easier and simpler forms for body consumption. Genetically engineering microorganisms can also be done, although this process can be too strenuous compared to the other methods.

In all the discussed production processes, an implementation of strict protocols and requirements are followed. Containment and sterility of the work zone must always be present, as well as adherence to the supplied guidelines.
