Q: I'm worried about mad cow disease and other issues with animal based products. Do your tablets have any animal by-products?
A: No, there are no animal by-products in the Daily2Tab. We offer only high quality vegetarian tablets, free from artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Q: Can I take my supplements any time of the day? Can I take both tablets at once?
A: For optimum results, it is best to take one tablet in the morning and one tablet in the evening (preferably with a meal). Many of the nutrients in the Daily2Tab are water soluble, which means they are not stored in the body and are usually excreted in about 3-4 hours. Also, some nutrients like calcium are better absorbed in smaller doses.
Q: I am currently taking your AntioxidantBalance. Can I take your Daily2Tab also?
A: Yes, the additional ingredients in the AntioxidantBalance will complement VitalRemedyMD's multiple vitamin multi-mineral supplement.
Q: If I eat a healthy diet, do I still need to take a multivitamin?
A: According to Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), most adults do not get enough essential vitamins and minerals from our diet. As a result, in 2002 two powerful and prestigious articles in JAMA recommend the use of a full spectrum daily multivitamin to guard against sub-optimal nutrient intakes.1
Q: Isn't the amount of vitamin A in your formula too high?
A: No. There is only 100% of the RDV of vitamin A in our product. It is not present in a high quantity as it is in some other products. It is important to recognize that vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin. Chronic doses — over 15,000 IU daily can be toxic. However, in addition to being just 100% of the RDV, the vitamin A in the Daily2Tab formula is in the form of beta carotene, which is a safe provitamin found in many fruits and vegetables, especially carrots. Beta carotene is broken down in the small intestines and converted to vitamin A only when the body needs it.
Q: Most of the minerals are listed as amino acid chelate. What does that mean?
A: The word CHELATION actually means "CLAW" or to wrap around. Amino acid proteins are bonded (or wrapped around) a chelated mineral in order to help ensure better absorption.
