Aside from the traditional registration of dietary supplements, NP-SA also offers a specialised service which concentrates on the registration and marketing of a new category of functional foods – also known as nutraceuticals.
What are nutraceuticals?
This new supplement category, comprised of naturally-derived, nutrient-rich ingredients sourced from plants and other food sources is defined as a food or part of a food that provides medicinal or health benefits, including the prevention and treatment of a particular disease.
They are therefore known as medically ‘active’ supplements.
The role of human nutrition in disease prevention and treatment is an extremely pertinent topic on a global scale. We believe the nutraceutical industry is one that is set for exponential growth and are proud to offer this specialised nutraceutical registration service to our clients.
