Food is a form of medicine and fills some of the gaps in preventative healthcare. Multiple approaches, including nutraceuticals, are used to make food more nutritious and effective in addressing health issues. According to Nutrients, “Nutraceuticals have been used not only for nutrition but also as a support therapy for the prevention and treatment of various diseases, such as to reduce side effects of cancer chemotherapy and radiotherapy.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition uses nutraceuticals to create meals with a higher nutrition content. 

What Are Nutraceuticals?

Nutraceuticals, a portmanteau of nutrition and pharmaceuticals, is one of the tools used by dieticians and food companies to introduce essential vitamins and minerals into food products. According to the International Journal of Preventative Medicine, “A nutraceutical product may be defined as a substance, which has physiological benefit or provides protection against chronic disease.” Nutraceuticals come in many different forms and can be used to address a wide range of health issues. In the context of home-delivered meals, nutraceuticals allow dieticians to add additional nutritional content to foods meant for individuals with medical conditions. 

Some examples of nutraceuticals added to enhance meals include: 

  • Vitamins
  • Dietary fiber  
  • Probiotics and prebiotics

LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers medically tailored meals (MTMs) to help people heal from medical procedures or manage chronic health conditions. Nutraceuticals are an excellent way to individualize MTMs and other food products meant to help people address or manage health issues. Nutraceuticals in meals enhance and enrich the nutritional quality of the food. 

Specific Ingredients

Nutraceuticals are made from natural compounds and offer a variety of health benefits. Omega-3 is an example of an ingredient used in nutraceuticals. In addition to being an essential nutrient, omega-3 protects against heart disease and age-related cognitive decline. LifeSpring Home Nutrition focuses on adding nutraceuticals to existing healthy meal plans to enrich the foods further. Some medical conditions, including Crohn’s disease or cystic fibrosis, may make it more difficult for people to absorb enough daily nutrients from unenriched foods. Nutraceuticals ensure people absorb enough essential vitamins and minerals to stay healthy.

Some common ingredients used in nutraceuticals include: 

  • Selenium 
  • Lycopene
  • Flavonoids
  • Polyphenols
  • Curcumin
  • Omega-6
  • Coenzyme Q10
  • Soy 

Every nutraceutical ingredient used by LifeSpring Home Nutrition plays a role in improving the meals created to address client health issues. According to the Journal of Food Science and Technology, “[T]he response of nutraceuticals can vary from person to person.” However, “Nutraceuticals have proven health benefits and their consumption (within their acceptable Recommended Dietary Intakes) will keep diseases at bay and allow humans to maintain an overall good health.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition cooks food fresh and flash-freezes to ensure none of the nutrients are lost before clients reheat the meals.

Known Health Benefits of Nutraceuticals

Adding nutrients to a person’s diet improves overall health and the effectiveness of medical treatments. According to the previously mentioned article by the International Journal of Preventative Medicine, herbal nutraceuticals have been “effective on hard curative disorders related to oxidative stress including allergy, alzheimer, cardiovascular, cancer, diabetes, eye, immune, inflammatory and Parkinson’s diseases as well as obesity.” 

Nutraceuticals have also been reported to help with other health-related issues by doing the following: 

  • Boosting the immune system 
  • Reducing preventable diseases 
  • Introducing additional antioxidants into a person’s diet 
  • Enhancing the body’s ability to regulate various functions 
  • Slowing the effects of aging 
  • Improving cholesterol 

Nutraceuticals are introduced into the meals to ensure clients receive the highest-quality products to meet their health needs. A registered dietician (RD) helps the meal preparation team determine what foods would benefit most from nutraceuticals. Every client has different needs and preferences. RDs collaborate closely with clients and healthcare providers to ensure meals are adjusted as needed to address changes in health.

Science Behind Nutraceuticals

The term nutraceuticals was adopted in the 1980s. Many people use it to refer to a wide range of different foods, drinks, and supplements. According to the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, “The scope of the nutraceutical field is enormous, both in terms of types of interventions and the variety of health outcomes.” Scientists have attempted to prove the effectiveness of various nutraceuticals for over forty years with mixed results. Researchers have found some nutraceuticals have a positive effect on the health of some individuals. Recent studies have proven the effectiveness of using food as a medical intervention, including nutraceutical-enhanced foods, to address medical issues. 

Nutraceuticals contribute to overall wellness by doing the following: 

  • Reducing the symptoms of age-related conditions 
  • Decreasing the risk of preventable diseases 
  • Increasing the rate of healing after surgery, illness, or injury 
  • Reducing symptoms related to chronic health issues 

LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers MTMs enriched with nutraceuticals and personalized to each client’s dietary needs. In recent years, healthcare professionals have begun using nutraceutical-enhanced foods and MTMs to help clients improve their quality of life. 

The Importance of Educating People on Advancements in Nutrition

Advancements in nutrition occur every year. However, people cannot take advantage of the new information if they don’t know about it. Community education is an important part of encouraging healthy dietary changes. The RDs at LifeSpring Home Nutrition educate individuals and families on the importance of using tools like nutraceutical-enriched meals to improve overall health.

Nutraceuticals combine the benefits of proper nutrition and pharmaceuticals to help people recover from medical conditions and manage chronic health issues. LifeSpring Home Nutrition uses nutraceuticals to ensure meals are tailored to each person’s unique nutritional needs.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
