Abstract :

Ayurceuticals, a subset of the universe of Food Supplements (FSSAI), are products with documented quality, safety and efficacy, based on the principles and practice of Ayurveda, Unani and Siddha, with consensual and congruent validity of Nutra-Ayurveda. Its scope for the local and the global markets is humongous. Ayurceuticals can fulfill the unmet needs of the health-care viz. care of the elderly, metabolic & degenerative diseases, promotion of health & development of children, and complementary therapy in cancer, allergy and immune disorders. Ayurceuticals improve the life style by improving the quality of life. The association of nutraceuticals with traditional medicine Ayurveda is well accepted by consumers. Ayurvedic concept of ?Aajasrik Rasayana? (general rejuvenation) deals with food products that can be consumed daily for maintaining the health (swasthasya swasthyarakshanam). In this paper, we will discuss the role, scope, need and potential of ayurceuticals.
