Minerals And Vitamins For Your Health

 

Q: Why are some of the daily value percentages in your products under 100%, while some are over? Wouldn’t I want to receive 100% of everything?

 

A: This is a great question! The body processes different vitamins, minerals and nutrients differently. Fat-soluble vitamins, for example, are vitamins that are stored in the body, in contrast to water-soluble vitamins (like B vitamins), which are expelled when consumed in excess. Since the body stores fat-soluble vitamins, excess amounts can build up and create toxicity. A varied and healthy diet should provide the body with a good portion of these vitamins, but we know that doesn’t always happen, especially if there are dietary restrictions involved. We formulate to account for these factors as best we can. We recommend consulting with your physician or healthcare professional to make certain our products are appropriate for your nutrient needs!
