Nature alone bestows us with an incredibly large number of nutraceutical products. Besides, the presence of fortified varieties only makes us selective for choice, as far as these health-enriched foods are concerned. Examples may include citrus fruits, fortified milk and dairy products, oats, soy, omega-3 fatty acid, fatty fish, nuts, isabgol, probiotics, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, leafy green vegetables and dietary supplements and others.
What are nutraceutical products?
‘Nutraceutical’ is this umbrella term which basically refers to a broad category of foods which contain large amounts of healthy and biologically active phytochemicals. It is a mix of two words, ‘nutrient + pharmaceutical’. Therefore, these products are not only rich in nutrients, but also provide a whole array of health benefits. Not only this, these products even exhibit certain preventive as well as curative properties. What is interesting is the fact that we might already be consuming an overwhelming variety of these, without even knowing it!
Nutraceuticals for Health and wellness
There are some remarkable benefits which most of the nutraceuticals are known to deliver:
Being loaded with an incredible amount of antioxidants, these nutraceuticals prevent our body against the process of oxidation, while inhibiting the premature signs of ageing, boosting our natural immune system, and also allowing us to recover earlier after having suffered from an injury or a disease.
These equip our body to fight some common to chronic diseases, including diabetes, gastrointestinal disorder, kidney failure, etc.
These nutraceuticals also prevent prolonged infections, thus allowing us to recover quicker and better.
They also manage to regulate our blood sugar, blood pressure as well as cholesterol levels.
Natural sweetener using stevia
Of late, stevia, an all-natural sweetener, has gained a rather huge popularity among the health conscious people the world over. It has emerged as the best available substitute to our regular, refined form of sugar. Stevia has a rather high sweetness quotient, a whopping 200 to 300 times. So we only need a very little amount of it for naturally sweetening our foods and beverages. It not only prevents our blood sugar from rising, but at the same time also tends to lower the blood sugar that is already on the higher side. Also, it contains very low calories. It is, therefore, just the apt choice for diabetics. On the other hand, stevia also monitors and manages our appetite, since we tend to satiate quicker with only a little amount of stevia. The same allows us to consume less at the end of the day, thus managing our weight all but naturally!
Natural weight management using Garcinia cambogia
The extract obtained from the peel of the Garcinia cambogia, a small yet sour fruit, has continued to maintain its reputation as an incredible weight loss supplement. It owes this property to the presence of an active ingredient called hydroxyl-citric acid (HCA), which is primarily responsible for helping us lose and manage weight. Some of the studies have indicated that by inhibiting the uptake of serotonin in the brain, it tends to suppress and reduce our overall appetite. This supplement also allows overweight people to lower their LDL as well as triglyceride levels.
Natural skin care with neem leaf extract
Neem is this much renowned herb which is known to deliver a whole host of healing benefits. It has been much touted by Ayurveda, the age old science of health and wellbeing, as an incredible therapeutic herb, loaded with more than 100 bioactive compounds. Its antiviral, anti-bacterial as well as immune stimulating properties make it all the more sought after in the world of healthcare, the world over. Besides, people also like to incorporate the neem leaf extract in variety of beauty and skin care regimens. Applying the freshly ground paste of neem leaf on our skin allows it to tone, exfoliate and moisturize it, but also fight acne, heal scars and treat the problem of skin pigmentation. It contains some potent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal as well as anti-inflammatory properties, which make it look after the infections and inflammation associated with our skin.
