Q: How should I use this? Can I take it with drinks or food?
A: We recommend that everyone to start ½, or even ¼, dose to see how their body responds. You may see that you do better with a smaller dosage because our formula is potent! It can be taken on an empty stomach or with food, any kind of liquid or juice (including hot or cold liquids).
Q: What does the flavor come from?
A: Our Liquid Morning Multivitamins get their great taste from Non-GMO, Vegan, Natural Raspberry Flavor, which comes from raspberries. The process by which we manufacture our flavor makes sure that there is no MSG, GMOs, aspartame, glycol and propylene, which are the main culprits in toxic flavors. When searching for ingredients to put in natural and dietary supplements, it is important for a company to always look to ensure those standards are met.
Q: I see there is NO SUGAR in the vitamins, which is great! What makes it sweet then?
A: Great question! We pride ourselves in being one of the only liquid vitamins that does not use fructose as its base! Instead we use Triple UV Deionized H20. The sweetness comes from natural vegetable glycerin which is known for its sweet taste while still being very low in the glycemic index. Noni juice also has a natural sweetness to it. When tested by a third party lab, our vitamins were confirmed to have ZERO sugars per serving :)
Q: Can I give the Multivitamin to children? What is the dosing?
A: Yes, children, ages two and up, can use our formula. However, before you give the Multivitamin to your children, we highly recommend that you show our formula to your physician, pediatrician or healthcare professional to see if our formula is right for your child. Your healthcare professional knows your child’s health best, including what other supplements or prescriptions your child may be taking, as well as knowing if your child is facing any health challenges. We recommend that the child's physician, pediatrician or healthcare professional approve all new wellness supplements. Your healthcare professional can also assess an appropriate dosage for your child. Each child is unique and different, and we want to make sure that they receive the best care possible!
Q: How can I travel with your vitamins?
A: We are currently working on a travel size which should be available soon. Meanwhile, many customers ration the appropriate amount of liquid they need for their trip and put it in a lunch box with an ice pack until they can refrigerate it when they arrive at their destination. Pack-It lunch boxes are a great option as they stay cold for the entire day.
Q: I have MTHFR gene variant(s). Is this product safe for me?
A: Navigating B-vitamins and MTHFR can be tricky! While there is a considerable amount of information coming out on genetic variations and how they affect our biochemistry and health, the MTHFR deficiency is not yet fully understood, including how various B-vitamins affect any given individual. Elevated homocysteine levels, often caused by the MTHFR gene variants, is associated with deficiencies in B9 (Folate), B6 and B12.
The primary concern for those with MTHFR gene variant(s) is Folate (vitamin B9). People with MTHFR gene variant(s) need to avoid synthetic forms of folate (B9), like Folic Acid. There seems to be some evidence that Folinic Acid is safe for those with the less severe MTHFR gene variants, while preliminary studies show that those with more severe MTHFR variants may require 5-MTHF (Methylated Folate) supplementation and/or treatment with betaine (trimethylglycine) to aid in metabolizing homocysteine.
Due to customer feedback, we opted to change the Liquid Morning Multivitamin in Raspberry flavor from non-methylated folate to to folinic acid. However, since the change was fairly recent, we may still have some of the non-methylated folate version in stock at our warehouse. If you are interested in this product (with folinic acid), please reach out to our customer care team before ordering!
In general, when starting any new health and wellness supplement, you should check with your physician or healthcare professional to make sure the supplement is suitable for you and your health. This is especially true when there is the added complexity of the MTHFR gene variants. We encourage you to partner with your healthcare professional to determine the best course of action.
Please do not hesitate to let us know of any additional questions you may have or if you need further assistance.
Q: What if I forgot to refrigerate my Multimineral?
A: Some customers have forgotten to refrigerate their Multis after opening. We have done testing on the multivitamins and multiminerals: results suggest they are good for 7 days out of the refrigerator. We like to err on the side of safety and say 5 days.
Q: Are the bottles BPA-free?
A: Yes, the brown and white bottles we use for our Multis are BPA free.
Q: Why is there no iron in the Liquid Multivitamin?
A: Great question! When formulating our liquid multivitamins, we wanted to make a multivitamin that had the best possible combination of micronutrients for optimal absorption. Since micronutrient competition is important to keep in mind when formulating the best liquid multivitamin, and iron can interfere with the body's absorption of other vitamins and minerals, we decided to not include iron in our liquid multivitamins. We will be releasing a liquid iron supplement Summer 2020 in a delicious berry flavor, so be on the lookout for that!
