FAQs - Product
What’s the most important supplement to take?
A high quality multi-nutrient is the foundation of any smart supplement program. You may already take multivitamins. And that’s good.
Yet, if you’re like many people who take a typical once-a-day type of multivitamin tablet and find that they just don’t feel any better, it’s time for an upgrade. Vitalive is a broad spectrum multi-nutrient solution for men and women. It contains more of the antioxidants and other nutrients you need to look and feel your best. It’s like 8 products all in one. Check it out.
Your body and brain crave more nutrients as you get older. So it’s more and more important to supplement your health with a pure multi-nutrient that contains more than just vitamins.
Your multi-nutrient should provide a solid nutritional foundation for vitality and wellness. Whether you’re 25 or 75, you can make a difference in your health by saturating your body with the right nutrients as part of a healthy lifestyle. Nutritional supplements are your insurance against the nutritional deficiencies caused by lifestyle, diet, and stress.
While taking a multi-nutrient is the first step to healthy supplementation, all the supplements in the world cannot make up for an unhealthy lifestyle. You also want to develop healthy habits in what you eat, what you drink, how you exercise, in your social life and how you relax and sleep. Supplementation, combined with these healthy lifestyle choices, will jump start your body … boost your energy … and help you live a more rewarding, easier life.
How do I find vitamins and nutritional supplements without additives?
Not all vitamins and supplements are created equal. Nutrient sources, forms, potencies, and quality vary greatly. You need to know what to look for. Sometimes nutritional supplements in drugstores, supermarkets, and even discount stores take up a whole aisle. And it’s good to have a choice. But rather than a huge selection, wouldn’t you prefer to find the best solution? Health food stores and other health sites, offer so many brands proclaiming to be the best and so many kinds of each supplement that it’s no wonder people are confused and don’t know what to buy.
Only buy premium quality supplements with full disclosure labeling that tell you what’s in the supplement AND what’s not. You want your nutritional supplements to be purely healthy … with all of the good and none of the bad. When you buy your supplements, double-check to make sure the form of each nutrient is digestible and absorbable by your body. For example, most minerals are best absorbed from your digestive tract into your bloodstream in chelated form. Chelated minerals are bound to amino acids (protein building blocks) or other substances to make them more absorbable by your body.
Look for “red flags” on labels—sugar, artificial colors and flavors, preservatives, additives such as shellac, chlorine, and other harmful chemicals. At 1-800-HEALTHY.COM, we do not sell low-grade supplements with fillers and binders. We focus on ultra-premium supplements backed by our unconditional money back guarantee.
Should I take supplements with or without food?
Almost all vitamins and nutritional supplements should be taken with a meal or snack to avoid upset stomach. And take them with water. Most juices and sodas are filled with sugars and sweeteners that hinder digestion. Not good. Most nutrient capsules, tablets and powders are absorbed best when taken with a balance of protein and carbohydrate (e.g. apple and nuts or chicken breast and steamed vegetables) while the digestion process is active. Vitamins, minerals and amino acids (building blocks of protein) eventually combine with each other to form enzymes. These chemical catalysts enable your body to digest and properly use the food you eat. That fuels growth, repair, and your greatness. Take your supplements as recommended by your physician.
What if taking a supplement makes me feel queasy?
If you have a sensitive stomach, or notice that a particular supplement makes you feel a little sick for a short time, take the supplement during your meal.
What if I get gas or diarrhea?
Sometimes a large dose can cause discomfort—not dangerous side effects like many drugs can cause, but uncomfortable reactions nevertheless. Magnesium causes muscle to relax. Vitamin C, for example, can cause gas and diarrhea if too large a dose is taken at first. This will usually stop if this dosage is reduced for a week and then built back up gradually and taken in divided doses. Sometimes your body just has to adjust to some supplements.
How can I make supplements easier to swallow?
Take your supplements in the form of small capsules, softgels, and pure powders or liquids almost exclusively. Avoid most rock hard tablets because they’re generally more difficult to swallow and usually contain a host of binders and fillers you don’t need. To prevent capsules or tablets from getting stuck in your throat, place them in your mouth, and swish around with a liquid, like juice or water, until the supplements become slippery, then swallow.
Do I need to take supplements at a certain time of day?
For best results, take supplements with your meals. If you can only remember to take the supplement once a day, take them in the morning.
How long will it take to see results?
After starting with a new supplement, you may get the results you are looking for after a few days to a week. But it is much more likely that the positive benefits develop over several weeks to several months. For acute conditions, like a cold, your herbal formula or zinc lozenge should give you quick relief; but for chronic ailments, like arthritis or digestive disorders, allow several weeks. For most chronic conditions, allow about two to three months as an initial “course” of supplementation.
What are essential fatty acids?
They are unsaturated fatty acids or “healthy fats” and they’re vital for your optimal health. Imagine. The membranes of your cells are made of fatty acids. Because there’s a deficiency of essential fatty acids (EFAs) in your food, your cells must use other fats, such as saturated fats or trans-fatty acids. Bad news! Your cell membranes, made with these other fats, become rigid and less efficient at letting nutrients enter and wastes exit. This causes many health problems. You are as young or as old as your cells. Healthy cells must have essential fatty acids such as omega 3 from fish oil.
EFAs are precursors to prostaglandins, hormone like substances that are important for regulating blood pressure, heart function, gastrointestinal function, kidney function, blood clotting, nerve transmission, and hormone synthesis. Your body cannot make EFAs, and we don’t eat enough from clean food sources like fish. That’s why it’s important to take the purest omega-3 fish oil supplements.
What are trace minerals?
They are minerals you need in very small amounts. While they’re recommended in small amounts—less than 50 mcg in some cases—they are vital to your survival, and a deficiency of just one can result in serious disturbances in your metabolism. Vitalive contains a broad spectrum of trace minerals.
Trace minerals act as shuttles or helpers in chemical reactions and produce biochemicals that send messages through your nervous system. They also produce hormones secreted by your thyroid and adrenal glands, burn carbohydrates and fat for energy, and weave molecules into tissue that becomes bones, blood vessels, skin, and teeth. Trace minerals help growth and reproduction, and help fight the effects of aging.
