What are Nutraceuticals?
Nutraceuticals are essentially consumables enriched with additional nutrients, such as supplements and medicinal foods. The purpose of this enrichment is to boost the nutritional value in order to aid in healing and growth. Nutraceuticals are products that are formulated to offer medicinal-type benefits. What we put in our bodies has a tremendous effect on our overall health.
Commonly accepted categories of nutraceuticals include functional foods, dietary supplements, medicinal foods and pharmaceuticals. Here at Bear Grooming we steer clear of any pharmaceuticals and only offer clinically tested supplements containing natural vitamins, minerals and nutraceuticals.
For example, our Biotin for Men supplements help break down fat and keep your blood sugar under control. Biotin has become more recently well known as a key ingredient in the growth of hair and nails – a water-soluble vitamin that is part of the vitamin B complex, biotin has also been proven to have a distinct impact on the health and growth of nerves. Unhealthy nerves can in turn lead to hair loss, dermatitis or neurological symptoms
Our Hair, Skin and Nails formula for men takes this one step further. These supplements contain Biotin, which of course has been proven to be a key ingredient in the growth of healthy hair and nails, but also minerals such as calcium, iron and zinc as well as vitamins A, B, E and C.
Benefits of Nutraceuticals
Nutraceuticals, in their various forms, offer a wide range of health benefits. Also, many believe they are a safer alternative to pharmaceutical treatments. They’re used both to prevent and treat a host of medical issues.
In addition to improving overall health, nutraceuticals are often formulated to support various body functions, prevent disease and extend life expectancy.
In more serious conditions, nutraceuticals have been proven to have quite an affect. Those that have shown to respond well to nutraceutical therapy include renal disease, gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes and many infections. When it comes to prevention, some nutraceuticals have shown to be quite useful in immune system support. Keeping yourself topped up once a day with our Man Vit for example, could be a good preventative measure ensuring you remain fit and healthy.
