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).
Natural Vitamin C Complex
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).
Vitamin B Complex
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.
Dosage: Take 1 capsule daily (in the morning with food and water).
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.
Optimize the function of your nervous system with this highly effective mineral! One capsule contains 448 mg pure trimagnesium dicitrate (for improved absorption). If you live an active or stressful life, then this popular magnesium supplement can be a huge help for you!

FULLNESIUM™ The Magnesium Complex
Fullnesium is the ultimate chelated magnesium supplement, containing a full-spectrum blend of 5 types of magnesium (magnesium bisglycinate, magnesium oxide, magnesium citrate, magnesium taurate, and magnesium malate).
Recommended dosage: Take 2 capsules daily (in the evening before bed or spread throughout the day with water)
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.

Do you read the labels of your supplements in detail?
When buying supplements, many people just quickly skim the list of ingredients without really understanding what's actually behind them.
We admit: The list of ingredients in dietary supplements can be very hard to understand. What many consumers don't know is that supplements from some brands contain many unnecessary ingredients in addition to vitamins and minerals.
Avoid supplements with a long list of "inactive ingredients" on the label. Because some of these additives can be harmful to your health.
We explain what exactly additives are and why they are sometimes found in supplements. Learn which additives you should avoid no matter what, so you know what ingredients to look out for the next time you buy.
It doesn't matter how old you are or what life situation you are in:
Life can be quite overwhelming!
