Nutraceuticals and Functional Nutrition

IF WE ARE WHAT WE EAT, as Feuerbach stated, nutrition plays a decisive role in our well-being. However, we often don't know what we eat, and the quality of our life suffers as a result, with serious consequences for the body. This is where Nutraceuticals comes into play, a word that is increasingly on everyone's lips. Having appeared semantically in Rome in 1989 as a literal and scientific portmanteau between the consolidated terms of nutrition and pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals has, in the development of recent years, increasingly represented that new vision that has been created in the relationship between food and health.

The Role of Nutraceuticals

THE ROLE OF NUTRACEUTICS today becomes decisive for those who want to know in detail what really happens when we eat, which principles are activated and with what real consequences on our health. Nutraceuticals in fact means recognizing, through a renewed relationship between biology, chemistry and medicine, the close relationship that exists between our eating habits and our health.

Functional Foods

FUNCTIONAL FOODS were born in Japan in the 1980s as real medicines. In practice, these are foods enriched with active ingredients of natural origin or nutrients (nutraceuticals), and their function is to bring benefits to the body.
