Did you know that over 40% of Americans consider alternative health therapies to be just as valid as pharmaceutical therapies?  We find it a surprise that it’s not more: with continued revelations that more foods and nutrients can provide incredible medical benefits and prevent diseases, we at the Fountain of Youth Medical Spa are determined to show our clients why pure encapsulated nutraceuticals is the best way to treat body, mind and soul.

Nutraceuticals – which is the word “nutrition” and “pharmaceuticals” combined – is a term used to describe the foods and botanicals that are incredibly beneficial to the body.  Nutraceuticals has experienced a boom in demand over recent years due to consumers being tired of the high cost of pharmaceutical drugs.  Additionally, with more prescription drugs carrying adverse side effects, long-term health problems and other dangerous conditions, it’s no wonder health-conscious consumers are moving towards the world of nutraceuticals.

So just what are a few examples of nutraceuticals? Take a look below:

  • Dietary supplements that contain herbs, minerals, vitamins and other botanicals are considered to be part of the nutraceuticals family.
  • Functional foods are also considered to be nutraceuticals, as they can be consumed in their natural state and provide significant health benefits to the human body.  Fortified foods can also fall under this category.
  • Medical foods are also nutraceuticals; however, these foods aren’t available to consumers.  Rather, they’re administrated by doctors to patients through the mouth or a feeding tube.
  • Finally, farmaceuticals are part of the nutraceuticals family, and are comprised of medically valuable components of plants and animals that one can typically find on a farm.

Believe it or not, you already consume plenty of nutraceuticals already.  Whether you take a multi-vitamin at the start of the day or you enjoy a side of broccoli with your dinner, these nutrients help your body repair itself from damage, fight off diseases and even prevent signs of aging.
