Nutraceuticals are a group of commercial food products used in Western Europe, U.S.A. and Japan, which have been known for a relatively long time. However they are neither medicaments nor foodstuffs, but are rather foodstuffs with positive effects on human physiology, which often act as prevention against some diseases. The presented monograph brings essential information in the field of foodstuffs for special diet, an area not very well known to Czech pharmacists, and aims to quickly and expeditiously provide basic facts concerning nutraceuticals to pharmacists. The book is divided into two parts: first comprises of the introduction into the theme, including an overview of the legislative aspects and basic classification of nutraceuticals, while the second part focuses on detailed taxonomy.
