5th International Conference on Nutraceuticals and Chronic Diseases
International Conference on Nutraceuticals and Chronic Diseases conference is designed to explore the scientific basis for the 'Pharmaceuticals and Nutraceuticals for Cancer and Other Chronic Diseases''. Nutraceuticals derived from spices, dietary agents, and medicinal plants will be included. Chronic diseases specially cancer, and others such as diabetes, obesity, mental disorders, arthritis, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and infectious diseases will be covered. Topics such as epigenetics, biofilms, microbiome, and omics, and their changes by nutraceuticals will also be covered.
The word ‘Nutraceutical’ is the combination of the word’s ‘nutrition’ and ‘pharmaceutical’. A nutraceutical product is a food or fortified food product that not only supplements the diet but also assists in treating or preventing chronic disease, so provides medical benefits. Specific and targeted artificially created drugs have not been found much effective against multi-genic chronic diseases. Also, their extended uses tend to exhibit severe adverse side effects. In contrast, nutraceuticals have been found to be multi-targeted, highly effective over long-term and exhibit minimal side effects. The Society for Nutraceuticals and Chronic Diseases works towards exploring such facets.
