Phytotherapy means using herbs, plants and vegetal extracts to keep healthy and maintain one’s psychophysical wellbeing. Men and women have always used plants and their extracts to prevent being affected by diseases and to heal their bodies. It is an ancient yet at the same time modern practice, because it is used also today as basis for the synthesis molecules in the traditional medicines. The plants in the phytotherapeutic drugs may be either pure (powdered or dried plants available as tablets or herbal teas) or extracts to be used like this or in combination with other products and active ingredients in medicines or food supplements.
There are many products that use some herbs and flowers to treat the body. In our pharmacy you may find effective anti-ageing creams, but also sun protections or anti-acne creams. We have also cosmetics and beauty products made with natural extracts: unlike the traditional makeup the organic cosmetics are made only of vegetal ingredients and they guarantee a healthy skin.
The word neutraceuticals comes from the combination of nutrition and pharmaceutical and underlines the features of this food approach: food is a therapeutic resource if we eat what is good for our health. The neutraceuticals are nutritional substances added to our usual food that help us reach a healthier and more active lifestyle.
