What is a Nutraceutical Supplement?

nutraceutical supplements and natural products by NUPRONutraceutical supplements are advanced, 21st century dietary supplements – featuring scientifically proven, or historically used, combinations of natural ingredients that benefit human health.

Nutraceutical is more than just a name.

The term originated in a trade journal, Pharmaceutical Executive, in the mid-90s.

 Nutraceutical Supplements are a Combination of Art and Science

  • Definition of Naturaceutical supplements is:
    … combinations of natural ingredients: vitamins, minerals and herbs,  that scientific research and historical uses have shown to be beneficial for human health.

The art for formulating nutraceutical supplements is:
… combining the natural ingredients – in just the right way.

The science is testing:

  1. Verify the ingredient before starting
  2. Quality control during the process of encapsulation of the formula
  3. Verify safety, efficacy and shelf life after bottling the formula
  4. NOTE:  Creating Professional grade nutraceutical supplements adds another layer of:  potency, performance and stability to art and the scientific process to meet the exacting demands of their users.

Nutraceutical Supplements or Prescription and/or Drug Store Medications

  • Webster’s definition for a supplement is:  something that compensates for a deficiency or constitutes an addition.

Prescriptions (including drug-store medicine) and nutraceutical supplements – are both supplements according to Webster’s definition.”

The distinction between medications and natural supplements – while it may sound like splitting hairs –  are worlds apart.

Medications are: 

a reactive approach for overcoming injury, infection, managing – but not curing – symptoms of chronic diseases.

Nutraceuticals are:

a proactive approach for promoting and maintaining health.

About natural supplements

Almost from the beginning of time …

Local herbs were collected and used by people, for various reasons since the beginning of time.

While most prehistoric people understood and used the local plants as medicine –  this collection of knowledge for the use of local herbs to promote and maintain health was ultimately centralized with one person, recorded and passed on from generation to generation.

This knowledge became the cornerstone of what is the typical old-fashioned dietary supplement that you can buy anywhere.

They are the bottles of pills that contain a dried or prepared natural herb, mineral or other substances that have a history of use for a particular purpose.

While most of the old fashioned dietary supplements are natural
… there are risks when you are using several different kinds of the old fashioned supplements at the same time.

  • Known Risks When Taking Old Fashioned Supplements

    Taking too much
    Taking too little
    Mixing the wrong types
    Mixing the wrong amounts
