"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
