"And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so." - Genesis 1:30

Nutraceuticals, a portmanteau of “nutrition” and “pharmaceuticals”, is the method of rebalancing the body through the daily intake of specific foods to prevent, control, and/or improve health conditions. The term nutraceuticals is used throughout both human and veterinary medicines to describe a class of drugs that provide both medicinal properties and also nutritive ones. In veterinary medicine, nutraceuticals are refered by the types of foods or ingredients that are believed or proven to have other health benefits.
The Indians, Egyptians, Chinese, and Sumerians are just a few civilizations that have provided evidence suggesting that foods can be effectively used as medicine to treat and prevent disease. Ayurveda, the 5,000 year old ancient Indian health science, have mentioned benefits of food for therapeutic purpose. Documents hint that the medicinal benefits of food have been explored for thousands of years. Hippocrates, considered by some to be the father of Western medicine, said that people should “Let food be thy medicine.”
With more than 40% of the American population using alternative medical therapies including nutraceuticals, pet parents are encouraged to do the same for their pets. Plus, consumers who are dissatisfied with the high cost of drugs and conventional healthcare and have poor or failed therapeutic outcomes, have turned to alternative methods for medical treatments. Since nutraceuticals are made from herbal or botanical raw materials and are considered by the population to be safer, it's no wonder why pet parents are moving to alternative medical therapies.
Nutraceuticals can be broken down into the categories such as functional foods or “food therapy”, cleansing & detoxifying, and dietary additives or supplements. All of these methods use food as a tool of purging, rebalancing, or boosting bodily functions.
