Evaluation of structural and functional changes associated with everyday s stress has generated the appearance of food-drug (nutraceuticals/foods supplements), with target functions, to compensate for the prophylaxis/therapy of synthetic drugs. The present study brings within discussion obtaining under rustic conditions, of the fir tree syrup from Obcinele Bucovinei, as a food supplement (considered nutraceuticals), administered in the case of respiratory diseases. Following the study of literature, supported by field studies, we developed a flow chart diagram of operations, including the fortification (by the incorporation of some spices), of fir-tree syrup. The determination of some quality indicators (vitamin C, Brixo, water, polyphenols), on the resulting products, highlights the increasing antioxidant and antimicrobial activity with increased health benefits.
