Journal of Pharmacreations Dr.N.Sriram en-US Journal of Pharmacreations 2348-6295 Nutraceuticals :The future of intelligent food and medicine <p>The term ‘nutraceuticals’ was coined in the late 1980s to describe food products that have a medicinal benefit.This fast growing sector includes functional foods (such as vitamin enriched products), nutritional supplements, sport drinks, and medically formulated foods. Functional foods and nutraceuticals provide a chance to enhance the human health, reduce health care costs and support economic development in rural communities. The phrase "Let food be the drugs and medicine be the food," coined by Hippocrates over 2500 years ago is receiving tons of interest today as food scientists and consumers realize the various health benefits of certain foods. This review article focused on the definition and the challenges and opportunities, motivating the development and regulations of functional foods and nutraceuticals were discussed. This article also focused on some samples of the functional foods and nutraceuticals and their health benefits</p> R.

Aquamin plays an important role in promoting bone formation and may be useful in treating bone diseases such as osteoporosis. Aquamin directly enhances osteogenesis by providing not onlyan extra source of calcium but also other essential bone supporting minerals necessary for the mineralisation of extracellular matrix deposited by these cells. Calcium is the most common mineral in the human body. About 99% of the calcium in the body is found in bones and teeth, while the other 1% is found in the blood and soft tissue. Calcium levels in the blood and fluid surrounding the cells (extracellular fluid) must be maintained within a very narrow concentration range for normal physiological functioning. The physiological functions of calcium are so vital to survival that the body will demineralize bone to maintain normal blood calcium levels when calcium intake is inadequate. Thus, adequate dietary calcium is a critical factor in maintaining a healthy skeleton. This review summarises the current available scientific literature regarding the effect of Aquacal tablets, A Natural calcium Supplement in supporting optimal bone Health.</p> Govind Shukla Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Pharmacreations 2021-07-25 2021-07-25 8 2 78 81 Impact of cytokine storm in covid-19 patients & treatment methods <p>The new coronavirus can harm the heart, kidneys, liver, and other organs, and 14 to 30 percent of COVID-19 patients in Wuhan have lost renal function, necessitating dialysis or kidney transplants. The new coronavirus infects people by targeting the ACE2 receptor on lung cells, which causes cytokine storms that harm human lungs, causing hyper inflammation and driving immune cells to kill healthy cells. This is why certain COVID-19 patients require specialized treatment. The liver produces proteins that protect the body from infections as a result of the inflammatory chemicals generated by COVID-19 infection. These proteins, on the other hand, can cause blood clotting, which can clog blood arteries in the heart and other organs, depriving the organs of oxygen and nutrition, leading to multiorgan failure and, eventually, acute lung damage, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and death. The effects of cytokine storm on bodily organs and management of cytokine storm in COVID-19 patients will be discussed in this review.</p> Dr.N. Sriram Dr. S. Kameshwaran DS.

ED can have psychological consequences as it can be tied to relationship difficulties and&nbsp;<a href="">self-image</a>.</p> <p>Traditional herbs have been a revolutionary breakthrough in the management of erectile dysfunction and have become known world-wide as an 'instant' treatment. The modern view of the management of erectile dysfunction subscribes to a single etiology, i.e. the mechanism of erection. A large number of pharmacological agents are orally consumed and vasoactive agents inserted intraurethrally or injected intrapenially to regain good erection. Modern phytochemicals have developed from traditional herbs. Phytochemicals focus their mechanism of healing action to the root cause, i.e. the inability to control the proper function of the whole body system. Hence phytochemicals manage erectile dysfunction in the frame of sexual dysfunction as a whole entity.

In turn, these radicals can start&nbsp;chain reactions</p> <p>Antioxidants terminate the chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions. They do this by being oxidized themselves, so antioxidants are often&nbsp;called as reducing agents&nbsp;such as&nbsp;thiols,&nbsp;ascorbic acid&nbsp;or polyphenols.</p> <p>Antioxidants are widely used as ingredients in&nbsp;dietary supplements&nbsp;and have been investigated for the prevention of diseases such as&nbsp;cancer, coronary heart disease&nbsp;and even&nbsp;altitude sickness.</p> <p>Antioxidants are our first line of defense against free radical damage, and are critical for maintaining optimum health and wellbeing. The need for antioxidants becomes even more critical with increased exposure to free radicals. Pollution, cigarette smoke, drugs, illness, stress, and even exercise can increase free radical exposure. Because so many factors can contribute to oxidative stress, individual assessment of susceptibility becomes important. Many experts believe that the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for specific antioxidants may be inadequate and, in some instances, the need may be several times the RDA. As part of a healthy lifestyle and a well-balanced, wholesome diet, antioxidant supplementation is now being recognized as an important means of improving free radical protection. Damage to cells caused by free radicals is believed to play a central role in the aging process and in disease progression.
