Food and nutrients are essential for the body's regular functioning. They aid in the preservation of an individual's health and the reduction of the danger of certain diseases. As a result of the widespread recognition of this fact, a link was established between “nutrition and health,” and the term “nutraceuticals” was coined. Nutraceuticals are therapeutic foods that aid in maintaining well-being, enhancing health, regulating immunity, and preventing as well as curing certain diseases. Nutraceuticals might thus be thought of as one of the missing pieces in a person's overall health. More than any other illness, cardiovascular disease has numerous risk variables that are susceptible to nutraceutical treatment. It is critical to see nutraceuticals' ability to improve cardiovascular risk factors as a huge opportunity in the treatment of a disease that affects so many people. Nutraceuticals show promise in clinical treatment since they have the potential to minimize the risk of chemotherapyrelated side effects while also lowering the overall cost of health care. In this study, an attempt was made to summarize some of the most recent research findings on garlic, omega-3 fatty acids, soy products, dietary fibers, vitamins, antioxidants, plant sterols, flavonoids, prebiotics, and probiotics that have beneficial effects on the heart, as well as to provide insight into a bioinformatics approach to identify novel therapeutic biomarkers in order to keep practitioners up to date.
