Nowadays, the topic of natural products and their different applications is very hot and debatable. We might see numerous papers presenting different properties of nutraceuticals and/or food supplements in different at risk patients. Unfortunately, most of these data come from small cohort studies, and the final conclusions do not give us clear answers on the real benefits and applications of nutraceuticals. Only well-established and designed prospective studies, randomized controlled trials with relatively high numbers of patients, meta-analyses and post-marketing consumer data, with special emphasis on real-word data, might give us the whole picture of both the effectiveness and safety of nutraceuticals, and might allow to select the group of patients that might really benefit from them. The recent numerous failures are also associated with the lack of standardized methods and algorithms on the production process, what should be also always taken into account while deciding to administer the given nutraceutical. Finally, the pandemic has shown that we have hundreds of different data on possible application of nutraceuticals in COVID-19 patients, in the end with most of them without any real clinical benefit. Therefore we need to all apply for better data for nutraceuticals, as it is the only way to finally establish them as a solid part of the recommendations for different chronic diseases, which is especially important now, when we have enormous health debts linked to cardiovascular and oncological diseases especially.
