Approaching nutraceuticals from a pharmacist's perspective, this reference contains information on nutraceutical ingredients from plant, animal, and mineral origins, explains the process of developing formulations, and gives examples of applications. Contributors are mainly from the US, with many from Sullivan University College of Pharmacy. After a historical perspective, the book gives insight into nutraceutical ingredients, followed by material on the characterization of nutraceuticals' physiochemical, analytical, pharmacological, and pharmacokinetic classifications. There is also a chapter on regulatory requirements. Chapters on specific formulations and representative applications cover areas such as bone and joint treatments, diabetes management, probiotics, and dietary foods. As an example of investigations into specific ingredients, two chapters detail current research on curcumin and pomegranate juice. There is also a chapter on safety and toxicity. Pathak is affiliated with Sullivan University College of Pharmacy. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
