Nutrition in early life


Food supplement

Nutraceuticals are foods which compounds have bioactive properties that are associated with well-being and health. The compounds can originate from animals or plants. At the Institute NaturScience, we discuss essential nutrients such as vitamins and minerals in another section – the human milk composition category – as well as other bioactive compounds from mother's milk. Plant-derived bioactive compounds from herbs, spices or plant extracts will be addressed in this section, starting with the definitions of terms – our understanding and meaning behind these in the context of the Institute NaturScience.
