Author(s):

Abstract:

Pharmacognosy, the study of medicinal drugs derived from plants and other natural sources, plays a crucial role in the development of nutraceuticals. Nutraceuticals, which are food products that provide health and medical benefits beyond basic nutrition, have gained significant attention for their potential to prevent and manage various diseases. This review explores the intersection of pharmacognosy and nutraceuticals, highlighting the processes involved in the discovery, extraction, and formulation of bioactive compounds. It also discusses the therapeutic potential of nutraceuticals, regulatory challenges, and future perspectives in the field.
