The term itself is a combination of the words “nutrition” and “pharmaceutical” and, simply put, it is a product isolated or purified from foods, sold in medicinal forms, providing health and medical benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease.  Nutraceuticals range from isolated nutrients, dietary supplements, and specific diets to herbal products, grains and beverages.  Nearly two-thirds of the American population takes at least one type of nutraceutical health product.

Since ancient times food has been used as medicine to treat and prevent disease.  Even Hippocrates, who is considered to be the father of Western medicine, said that people should “Let food be thy medicine.”  Modern research is clearly demonstrating how far ahead of his time Hippocrates was as the evidence continues to grow proving that components of food play an integral role in the link between food and health.
