Globally, nutraceuticals are gaining prominence and becoming a part of the average consumer’s daily diet. In India, the market for dietary supplements, sports nutrition products, food beverages, and weight loss products that are broadly clubbed in nutraceuticals is beginning to pick up speed since Indians are becoming conscious about their health and external appearance. Furthermore, with the increase in life expectancy and subsequent increase in lifestyle diseases, nutraceuticals have emerged as a necessity for consumers. In developing nations such as India, mortality due to nutrition-related factors is nearly 40%, underscoring the need for nutraceutical products to balance the nutritional intake of the individual. The trend towards preventive healthcare has been noticed by pharmaceutical companies, which have diversified into the production of nutraceuticals.
