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).

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.

Do you take any supplements on a regular basis?
Our modern diets provide less and less of the vitamins and minerals we all need for our health and well-being. Modern farming methods strip nutrients from the soil, while pasteurization, pesticides and other chemicals ensure that what we eat and drink is stripped of essential vitamins and minerals.
