Nutraceuticals, which are defined as any food or component of food that has health benefits, such as the ability to prevent or treat disease, have become essential for consumers in both developed and developing nations. Functional elements like vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are becoming more important due to the changing lifestyle. This category now includes things like probiotics, amino acids, and fatty acids, among others. In light of the fact that these items are intended for human consumption, regulatory bodies worldwide are concentrating on the Product Quality and Safety. This paper looks into the nutraceutical registration processes in different countries. The India have developed the Food for special dietary use registration process whereas the USA have put into place Dietary supplement registration process and the Japan have developed registration process for Foods for specified dietary use (FOSHU) whereas the China have developed registration process for Health foods. It also includes the marketed formulation of nutraceuticals. The aim of this paper is to compare the regulation processes between the different countries.
