"You're what you savour."- this proverbial maxim forms the basis of 'Phytotherapy' or treatment with fruit and vegetable extracts. The modern nutrition gurus and dieticians call these extracts as 'Nutriceuticals'-an umbrella term for dietary supplements. These are foods, as if especially created by nature for people with specific diseases. Besides providing alternative herbal cures, these act as health tonics to supply vim, vigour and vitality.
The palliative and potent curative aspects of plant products being natural in origin cause no side effects. Instead, these products act as therapeutic or prophylactic medicines. Current Ayurvedic researches by leading pharmaceutical R&D centres around the world have proved their indomitable power to cure or prevent a large number of diseases viz., arthritis, high- cholesterol, hypertension, osteoporosis, diabetes, asthma, and more. The attention of the readers may be drawn to a latest finding by the Ajanta Pharmacy, which has developed the world's first natural 'Carotene' product derived from carrot extract that has proved highly effective in controlling diabetes and obesity.
