Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources that provide both nutrition and medicinal benefits.
Nutraceuticals are also known by the following terms:
- Functional foods
- Medical foods
- Designer foods
- Nutritional supplements
- Dietary Supplements
Track 2-Dietary Supplements
Dietary supplements are those products that contain concentrated bioactive nutrients from a food source processed into a suitable dosage form. These supplements can contain one or more of the following: amino acids, vitamins, herbs or other botanicals, minerals, important metabolites, and certain enzymes.
Dietary supplements are available in tablets, capsules, powders, and liquids, gummies, energy bars, and any other suitable forms.
Track3-Functionals Food and Probiotics
Functional foods are any food or food ingredient that provides a health benefit other than basic nutrition.
Probiotics are live microorganisms which provide health benefits when consumed by improving or restoring the gut flora
Track4- Nutraceuticals and Prevention of Disease
Nutraceuticals play an important role in preventing the onset of chronic diseases and reduce the complications involved. Evidence suggests they are used in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and inflammatory-based diseases.
- Improve Eye Health
- Improve Immune Function
- Improve Gut Health
- Support Reproductive Health
- Treat Inflammation
Track 5- Nutraceuticals in Sports
Nutraceuticals are useful in sports medicine as they help athletes improve their performance and reduce oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction, which occurs due to heavy exercise.
Particularly, mitochondria-targeted nutraceuticals (MTNs) such as resveratrol and quercetin, have been shown to have antioxidant effects at a molecular level, which improves mitochondrial bioenergetics and leads to better exercise performance and recovery.
Track 6- Nutraceuticals in Animal Health and Diseases
Nutraceuticals have been used for thousands of years for the prevention and treatment of human and animal diseases. Nutraceuticals are used in animals against diseases of the central nervous system (CNS), cardiovascular, respiratory, musculoskeletal, hepatic, renal, immune, and other systems. Some diseases are more prevalent in certain species than others, such as osteoarthritis in horses and dogs, and type II diabetes in dogs and cats.
Track 7- Nutraceuticals and Neurodegenerative Diseases
Research shows that nutrients and nutraceuticals play an important role in the prevention, management, and treatment of mental health disorders and psychological functioning.
Many nutrients and nutraceutical compounds including omega-3, vitamins B and D, magnesium, iron, zinc, curcumin, lycopene, and b-carotene results in improving mood, stress, anxiety, depression, and cognitive functioning.
Nutraceuticals with antioxidant properties help in prevention of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
Track 8- Dosage and Delivery Techniques
To enhance the efficacy of nutraceuticals, delivery systems are greatly needed to protect nutraceuticals from the harsh conditions of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Drug delivery systems using nanotechnology, such as biocompatible polymers, including smart polymers that are stimuli responsive are used, various drug delivery systems were adopted, including nanoparticles, liposomes, dendrimers, phytosomes, nanoemulsion and others.
Track 9- Cosmeceuticals
Cosmeceuticals are products that have both cosmetic and therapeutic effects, and are intended to have a beneficial effect on skin health and beauty. Like cosmetics, they are applied as creams or lotions but contain active ingredients that have an effect on skin cell function. In some cases, their action is limited to the skin surface (such as exfoliants), while others can penetrate to deeper levels, either enhancing or limiting normal skin functions.
Track 10- Marine Nutraceuticals
Marine nutraceuticals are the products or substances which are obtained from the marine sources such as fish, prawn, sponges, and many other marine organisms. Nutraceuticals comprise of various proteins, peptides, carbohydrates, essential minerals, bioactive peptides, vitamins, enzymes, phenolic phlorotannins, and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). Many of these are also used as therapeutic agents to cure diseases. Marine sources are well-recognized for biologically active materials by their numerous potentials to be used as nutraceuticals.
Track 11- Regulation and Marketing of Nutraceuticals
The regulatory pathway to market nutraceuticals product is either dietary supplements or food fortification. Both dietary supplements and conventional foods can make approved health claims and qualified health claims, but these are limited and require costly and time-consuming regulatory process within the FDA. There should be a harmonization of food regulations around the world.
Track 12- Nutritional Genomics
Nutrigenomics is science that deals to understand how the food we consume exerts an impact upon on the functioning of our genes. There is a growing understanding that gene function plays a major role in our dynamic health states, and that DNA plays a role not only in determining our inherited traits our risk of disease also.
Track 13- Natural Medicine
Natural medicine, also called herbal medicine, has been around for centuries. Natural medicine is commonly practiced by people who prefer to treat symptoms and illnesses with natural remedies rather than pharmaceuticals.
Natural medicine can also be referred to as naturopathy; it is a form of alternative medicine which involves homeopathy, herbalism, acupuncture, diet and lifestyle counselling.
Track 14-Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese medicine is a healing approach that originated in China thousands of years ago. Often referred to as "TCM," practitioners use herbs, diet, acupuncture, cupping, and qigong to prevent or treat health problems. In TCM, the treatment would depend on diagnosing the imbalance different from modern medicine which is based on diagnosis
Track 15- Ayurveda
Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science.
The principles of many of the natural healing systems now familiar in the West have their roots in Ayurveda, including Homeopathy and Polarity Therapy.
Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs. In Ayurveda, body, mind and consciousness work together in maintaining balance.
Track 16- Uses, Regulation and Marketing of Natural Medicine
The use of herbal medicinal products and supplements has increased tremendously over the past three decades. Although some herbal medicines have promising potential and are widely used, many of them remain untested and their use also not monitored. Various advertisements in the mass media including television and radio programmes have significantly increased consumers’ awareness and given the herbal products undue respectability and credibility.
Some popular herbal medicines are
Track 17- Alternative medicine
Traditional alternative medicine. This field includes the more mainstream and accepted forms of therapy, such as acupuncture, homeopathy, and Oriental practices. These therapies have been practiced for centuries worldwide. Traditional alternative medicine may include
- Chinese or Oriental medicine
- Hollistic Medicine
Track 18- Plant and Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine, also called botanical medicine or phytomedicine, refers to using a plant's seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. Herbalism has a long tradition of use outside conventional medicine. It is becoming more mainstream as improvements in analysis and quality control, along with advances in clinical research, show the value of herbal medicine in treating and preventing disease.
The global nutraceuticals market size was valued at USD 417.66 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at acompound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.9% from 2020 to 2028. The growing demand for dietary supplements and functional foods is expected to be a key driving factor for the global market over the forecast period. Favorable outlook towards medical nutrition due to the increasing application scope in the treatment of Cardiovascular Disorders (CVDs) and malnutrition is likely to stimulate the growth of the dietary supplements segment. Rising healthcare costs coupled with the increasing geriatric population across the world are anticipated to drive the global functional foods industry over the forecast period. Consumers’ attitude is being observed to be very positive towards functional foods, mainly on account of the added health and wellness benefits offered by these products.
The global complementary and alternative medicine market size was valued at USD 82.27 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.03% from 2021 to 2028. The market is set to gain momentum in the coming years owing to the changing regulatory scenario, coupled with robust government initiatives, resulting in the establishment of strong transnational connections across healing pathways linking global, national, and local movements regarding alternative medicine. Additionally, government initiatives exploring norms related to the right to health in all its forms are set to supplement the participation of service providers and users in the field of alternative and complementary healthcare. Government initiatives play a major role in propelling the demand for integrative health and complementary medicine practices by strengthening targeted expenditure, setting up government facilities, and releasing guidelines to ensure appropriate usage of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
