Frequently Asked Questions

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS ORGANIC?

Our products are not organic.Organic Dietary Supplements are made in a way that complies with organic standards set by national governments and international organizations. In the United States, organic production is a system that is managed in accordance with the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) of 1990 and regulations in Title 7, Part 205 of the Code of Federal Regulations to respond to site-specific conditions by integrating cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.

 

WHY, IS THERE SO MUCH POWDER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE?

WHY, DO THE TABLETS LOOK MISSHAPEN, CRUMBLY OR FALLING APART?

Because of a special process which allows the tablet to dissolve so fast, they are soft and easy to crumble. We add extra tablets to each bottle to allow for this.

 

CAN NO SHOT B-12 BE USED IN PLACE OF AN INJECTION?

NO, YOU MUST CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN. B-12 IS A NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT ONLY, NOT A DRUG.

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CYANOCOBALAMIN AND METHYLCOBALAMIN?

Methylcobalamin is a type of Vitamin B-12 that is already in the activated form (ready to be used by the body). Vitamin B-12 comes in several kinds including methyl-, cyano-, and adenosyl-, but only the methyl form is used in the central nervous system. Cyanocobalamin (the common type found in most vitamin supplements) is converted by the liver into methylcobalamin – the methylcobalamin B-12 does not need to be converted by the liver. A small percentage of people have a problem with their liver’s ability to convert B-12 from the cyano form to the methyl form – for these people the methylcobalamin form is essential.

 

DOES THE B-12 FALL UNDER VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN?

The B-12′s are a type of vegetarian but not vegan. The reason it is not vegan, is because it contains lactose, which is derived from milk.

 

WHY IS YOUR B-12 COLORED RED AND OTHER COMPANIES SUBLINGUAL B-12’s ARE NOT?

Red is the natural color of Vitamin B-12. Because our micro tabs are so small, the tablet takes on the red color of B-12. Other manufacturers of B-12 lozenges are so much larger than ours, the fillers and binders in these products dilute the natural red color. In addition, some of these lozenges have a thin coating which covers the color of the tablet.

 

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS (GLUTEN, CORN, WHEAT, ANIMAL, ETC) FREE?

We make no claims, nor do we represent that our products are free of any ingredient.
