The term “Nutraceutical ” associates two words – “nutrient” (food component) and “pharmaceutical” ( medical drug).It is a food supplement that delivers health benefits in addition to its nutritional value. Nutraceutical may be a naturally nutrient-rich or medicinally active food or it may be a specific component of a food, such as the omega-3 fish oil that can be derived from salmon and other cold-water fish.
