Nutraceuticals | Laborest


Nutraceutics is a scientific study that is gradually developing throughout the world and that examines the active ingredients of food, plants and minerals that have beneficial effects on health. The term, coined by Stephen L. De Felice in 1989, combines the words “nutrition” and “pharmaceutics” to emphasise the impact of food on our physical and psychological wellbeing. Nutraceuticals are products which contain one or more substances that are naturally present in food but which are made available in a pharmaceutical form (tablets, powders or drops) that contains them in concentrated and purified quantities.

Modern science has shown that given types of food contain special molecules and can thus positively impact one or more of our physiological functions. Thanks to modern technology and the latest scientific developments, nutritional ingredients can be extracted and concentrated in capsules or powders to increase their benefits in an exponential manner. This has led to the development of nutraceuticals, which are a concentrated source of nutrients such as vitamins and minerals, amino acids, fibres and herbal extracts. They can supplement any nutritional deficiency and support the body’s wellbeing. Laborest has also developed nutraceuticals that are suitable for people who are gluten or lactose intolerant or sensitive as well as Doping-free nutraceuticals.

Coupled with a healthy and balanced diet, nutraceuticals can be valuable allies for our health in many different ways: for the musculoskeletal system, for the urinary tract, for microcirculation, for a healthy cardiovascular system, for metabolic and psychophysical balance, for the paediatric age, for women in different periods of their life.

Ear, nose and throat are part of the so-called distretto “head-neck” (or cervico-facial) district. Although the different parts may seem unrelated, their anatomical grouping means that their physiology is also often connected. In fact, problems of an infectious, inflammatory or other nature affecting one of the districts can cause alterations in the physiological state of the adjacent structures.
