Track: Pharmaceuticals vs Nutraceuticals

Food Science 2024


To conclude, both nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals are made with an intent to prevent, cure or treat a disease. But they vary in their origin as pharmaceuticals are synthetically made medicines but nutraceuticals may contain natural extract of food components.

nutraceutical supplement may have an amino acid, vitamin, mineral, herb extract, or combination of several ingredients, for example, fish oil, green tea, ginseng extract, omega 3, etc. The goal is to naturally make our body stronger in order to fight an illness or minimise the probability of its occurrence.

Pharmaceutical products are of different segments like specifically for renal disorders, cardiovascular or neurological disorders, etc. But nutraceutical products are promoted for the general well-being of all in order to prevent the disease.
