Nutraceuticals: Perspective of Indian Scenario

Vimal Kumar1, M. Y. Khan1 & Anuj Modi2

Introduction: About 2000 years ago, Hippocrates correctly emphasized “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food". Currently there is an increased global interest due to the recognition that “nutraceuticals” play a major role in health enhancement. The term 'nutraceutical' was coined in 1989 by Stephen De Felice, a physician and founder of the Foundation for Innovation in Medicine (FIM; Cranford, NJ, USA), to describe “a food or part of a food that provides medical or health benefits, including the prevention and/or treatment of disease.” Nutraceuticals now include a wide range of products, such as echinacea, St John's wort, oils from fish and flax seed, glucosamine and chondroitin, calcium-fortified juices and plant-sterol-containing butter substitutes. Iceland's largest dairy company recently introduced the world's first milk to lower high blood pressure, Finns can buy a similar product with bioactive peptides as active ingredients, and probiotic drinks to strengthen the immune system are sold all over world.
