One of the most common questions we receive from our customers is: How and when should I take my vitamins?
Today we wanted to shed some light on this important topic and answer typical questions in connection with supplements and vitamins.
We´ve also added some ideas for innovative uses of our products and suggestions on how you can find the perfect product combination for yourself.
Water-soluble vitamins are not stored by the body. Since they are eliminated in the urine, we require a continuous daily supply in our diet.
Water-soluble vitamins include vitamin C and theB’s: thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), folic acid (B9), and cobalamin (B12).

Vitamin C is a true all-round genius. For this reason, we have developed a highly effective formula that provides you with1284% of the recommended daily intake (NRV) of vitamin C. Our capsules contain the concentrated power of rose hips, acerola cherries, camu camu extract and citrus bioflavonoids, are100% naturaland have a high bioavailability.
Dosage: Take 3 capsules daily (spread throughout the day with food and water).

B vitamins are responsible for numerous metabolic functions and support mental and physical performance. Our highly potent vitamin B complex contains all8 essential B vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, biotin, folic acid & B12.Thanks to the slow release capsules, ONE capsule is sufficient daily.

Large doses of minerals can compete with each other to be absorbed. Don’t use calcium, zinc, or magnesium supplements at the same time. Ideally minerals should be taken with food.
In case you are taking several mineral supplements, have them at different meals or snacks.

Maximum bioavailability is something we focus on in all our formulas. Due to this reason we have already added certain ingredients to optimize the absorption of vitamins and minerals.
By choosing the right combination of products you can improve their effectiveness. A good example is vitamin D.
Consider taking vitamin D together with vitamin K2
Vitamin D and K2 work with one another to maintain tight control over calcium levels in the body. A growing body of research shows that the combination of these two vitamins provides powerful support to the body, including optimal bone health, arterial health and immune system balance.
If you have any health conditions that require regular medication, you should always check with your doctor before taking supplements.
Taking multiple drugs and/or supplements can increase your risk for side effects and adverse interactions, including cognitive impairment. Even herbal supplements from natural sources can have potent active ingredients and dangerous interactions with drugs, other supplements, and certain foods and beverages.
You should also be extra cautious if you are pregnant. When you're pregnant what you eat is the main source of nutrients for your baby. That's why the needs for most nutrients are increased during pregnancy. Always consult with your doctor in order to avoid risks and ensure the best possible nutrient combination.
Please note: Certain vitamins or supplements should NOT be taken during pregnancy at all. For example studies have shown that large doses of synthetic or preformed vitamin A in supplements can be dangerous and not only cause harm to you, but also your baby.
Many of our supplements can be used in innovative ways for beverages or cooking as well.
Here are some examples:

Are you getting enough sleep, zinc and vitamin C? Then this is already a big step for the health of your immune system. But in the colder months and during flu season, you should pay special attention to your defenses.
A well-functioning immune system plays an important role in the fight against flu germs. If it doesn't work properly, we are at risk of getting sick.
But what exactly does the health of our gut have to do with this?
The gut provides back-up and is strongly connected to our defenses.
Learn how exactly the gut is connected to the immune system and what you can do to strengthen your defenses, especially during this flu season.
A healthy immune system is no coincidence. Daily eating habits and general lifestyle have a direct impact on our body. They help our body to protect us from infections and toxins.
In order for our immune system to do its job properly, it needs to be constantly supplied with vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
And yet it is still inevitable that every now and then a virus or bacteria will invade our body. If an intruder has managed to get into our body, immune cells (kind of blood cells) come into action to fight it. Blood cells are a very important part of our immune system and should therefore be well supported.
But how can we support the production of blood cells? We found out for you & are going to tell you now!
Did you know that the skeleton of an adult human being consists of up to 214 bones and more than 650 muscles?
The health of our bones is extremely important - they keep us active and ensure that we remain fit as we age. Modern ways of working, such as sitting for hours, mean that our bodies are often strained. We should therefore make sure that we promote blood flow to our muscles and joints through an active lifestyle. Nutrition is also fundamental. Through a healthy dietary style, we need to provide our bones and muscles with many nutrients.
