Abstract

Nutraceuticals represent neither nutrition nor pharmacology, but instead an evolving new field of research, that may generate a deeper knowledge of the mechanisms of action and the benefits that may derive from the use of evidence-based dietary patterns and the contribution of precisely identified “nutraceuticals” or components of traditional medicine. The potential applications of nutraceuticals are therefore as multifaceted as the term itself. This may lead not only to a more logical and scientific use of nutrients, but may substantiate a nutritional approach to disease prevention and treatment
