Abstract:

Nutraceutical cocrystals are emerging as novel crystalline forms to modify physicochemical properties of pharmaceuticals. In general, various methods of cocrystal preparation including their applicability to nutraceutical are described. Crystal engineering of nutraceuticals can, produce cocrystals and is expected to be the effective way to enhance the solubility and bioavailability of the target flavonoid, herbal and vitamins molecules.
