DeFelice coined the term nutraceuticals to denote food and dietary supplements with remarkable medicinal powers. One of them, carnitine-a substance found naturally in certain muscles of your body-has been found by Dr. DeFelice and other medical experts to offer extraordinary benefits for the heart. DeFelice pioneered the concept of nutraceuticals. The world has finally caught up. Now, he's doing it again, with pioneering thoughts on human nutrition.

Dr Stephen DeFelice coined the term "Nutraceutical" from "Nutrition" and "Pharmaceutical" in 1989. The term nutraceutical is being commonly used in marketing but has no regulatory definition. An attempt to redefine nutraceuticals and functional foods is made in this article. The proposed definitions can help distinguish between functional foods, nutraceuticals, and dietary supplements. The advantages and disadvantages of nutraceuticals are also briefly discussed.

A nutraceutical or 'bioceutical' is a pharmaceutical alternative which claims physiological benefits. In the US, "nutraceuticals" are largely unregulated, as they exist in the same category as dietary supplements and food additives by the FDA, under the authority of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Nutraceuticals are treated differently in different jurisdictions.

Books on nutraceuticals, such as this, are urgently needed to keep the fl ames fl ickering. The chapters in this book, authored by international experts, cover a broad, promising range of medical-health topics, ranging from cardiovascular therapeutics to mental health to inexorable aging. The scope of nutraceuticals is as broad as that of pharmaceuticals but still lacks serious consideration from critical segments of the health industry.

Examines regulatory aspects of marketing food or food components by claiming medical benefits for them.

No table of contents or index; bibliographical references are spotty. Also published as Clinical Research and Regulatory Affairs 14(1), 1997. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
