What Are Phytopharmaceuticals?
Quite simply, they are pharmaceuticals using traditional
compounds derived from botanicals instead of chemicals.
Why Are Phytopharmaceuticals Better?
Natural ingredients are more easily and more readily
metabolized by the body. Therefore they produce
fewer, if any, side effects and provide increased
absorption in the bloodstream resulting in more
thorough and effective treatments.
How Are They Developed At Nutraceutics?
Our research and development processes are deeply
founded in traditional clinical pharmacology.
At the same time, we are always looking to the
future. We carefully formulate our products, blending
pure natural botanical extracts to meet specific
Why Phytopharmaceuticals Instead of Chemical
Pharmaceuticals made from chemical compounds are
prone to adverse side effects. The human body
will have a tendency to reject certain chemical
compounds which do not occur naturally. These
rejections occur in the form of side effects;
some as mild as minor headaches, and others as
severe as to be potentially lethal. It is important
to note while phytopharmaceuticals produce fewer
to no side effects, chemical interactions with
other prescription drugs can occur.
What Should You Watch Out For?
While therapies such as herbal remedies and phytopharmaceuticals
have been used for centuries, if not millennia,
modern science has been reluctant to accept this
discipline. Recently however giants such as Miles
Laboratories and Upjohn Pharmaceuticals have begun
to realize the tremendous clinical benefits of
naturally occurring remedies as well as their
popularity with the public. As this industry continues
to grow, the public must be aware and research
the different therapies they are considering.
Not all companies will go through the time and
expense of finding and using the best quality
natural ingredients. Therefore it is best to look
for well known brand names like Nutraceutics.
As you would with any chemical remedy, always
read the label carefully and look at the ingredients.
If you have questions, call the company before
consuming the product. If your questions are not
answered to your satisfaction, consider another
product or brand.
