A nutraceutical is a pharmaceutical- and standardized nutrient.In the US, "nutraceuticals" do not exist as a regulatory category; they are regulated as dietary supplements and food additives by the FDA under the authority of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.Nutraceuticals are usually natural substances and, unlike drugs, are not substances synthesized for a certain purpose .Nutraceuticals are also called functional foods, which are defined as “food products to be taken as part of the usual diet in order to have beneficial effects that go beyond basic nutritional function”.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 drugs. The word nutraceutical is combined from the words nutrition and pharmaceutical.
