Nutraceuticals are dietary supplements, also called functional foods that are used to help prevent and treat disease. These products can be single nutrients like Vitamin C or dietary supplements such as a multiple vitamin/mineral combined together. Known to have health benefits, nutraceuticals provide protection against chronic disease and are good for spine and joint problems. Nutraceuticals include glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, fish oils (omega 3s), and the herb such as Boswellia.
Supplemental nutraceuticals provide extra nutrition. When a person’s diet is not able to meet all the nutrients needed by their body, supplemental nutrients may be helpful. Fatigue, joint stiffness and body aches can be signs of decreased nutritional health. Nutraceuticals are a quick and reliable way to restore, repair and return to good health.
Nutraceuticals can help:
- Reduce inflammation
- Reduce nerve pain stimulation
- Rebuild and restore strength in bones
- Build connective tissue
- Repair every day wear and tear on the body
- Decrease tightening and stiffening of muscles, connective tissues and joints
