Classification of Nutritional: Depending upon various characteristics, nutrition can be classified by several methods. Their major classes can be as under nutraceutical according to food source. Nutraceuticals according to their action of mechanism. Nutraceuticals according to their chemical nature. Nutraceuticals according to their higher contents in particular foods items. Cosmeceuticals are the cosmetic products, which contain biologically active principles or ingredients of plant origin having effect on users, or they are combination products of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, intended to enhance the health and beauty of the skin. They differ from cosmetics, since cosmetics are the inert substances which cleanse or enhance the appearance of the skin without any therapeutic benefit. Whereas pharmaceuticals are used to treat or prevent the diseases or are intended to affect the physiological structure or function of the body.
