How and when to take food supplements: our advice for you
Dietary supplements are consumed by many people on a daily basis. In order to get efficient results from the ingestion, it is useful to know when and how to use these particular products.
When should the supplements be taken to be effective?
Unlike prescribed medicines that need to be used under the right dose and at the right time, the dietary supplements are mostly used according to the manufacturer's packaging instructions.
There is nothing wrong with such general directions about dietary supplements. However, if you, the consumer, would like to have a more comprehensive and accurate view of these health-enhancing products, it is advisable to classify them into the following groups in order to create an appropriate intake plan.
Dietary supplements with magnesium: It is best to take it in the morning because it is beneficial for the nervous system.
Dietary supplements with calcium, B12: can be taken in the morning, at noon or in the afternoon.
Vitamins B and C: Experts recommend taking these in the morning.
Dietary supplement with vitamins A, D, K, E: Take immediately with meals because it facilitates their absorption by the body. You can consume multivitamin products immediately after breakfast as they contain different types of vitamins and minerals.
Collagen supplements can be consumed at two intervals: before breakfast and 30 minutes to 1 hour before bedtime. These are the product usage times to achieve the best effects on the skin.
Dietary supplements to support weight loss, designed to improve digestion: Consume 20 to 30 minutes before meals.
4 rules to know when using supplements:
1.The price does not determine the product quality
In general, the dietary supplements are sold at relatively high prices in both domestic and foreign markets.
Most products are made from many high-quality and valuable ingredients or are made according to unique recipes. Some are even patented, for example Vitaprotein – a unique technology from Schaeffer Nutraceuticals to the encoded protein. It directs vitamins and minerals in each capsule to where they are needed most.
However, not all expensive products are necessarily good. We recommend that you just choose a suitable product for yourself and use it persistently to get the expected results.
2. Avoid misusing dietary supplements
Some people may think that the more they consume the supplements, the greater the health benefits. However, this idea is not good as it might bring the overdose effects.
Please follow the manufacturer's precise instructions. In addition, please avoid taking different dietary supplements at the same time to keep the possible side effects under control.
With consumer health and protection in mind, we keep emphasizing that dietary supplements are not 'magic' pills. You cannot make various health problems go away. Therefore, if you have serious health problems, please contact your doctor.
3. Try to find out more about the origin and ingredients of the dietary supplements
It is advisable, before buying a dietary supplement, but also other products, to find out carefully about the origin, the manufacturer and the raw materials used.
Please ensure you do not purchase any low quality products from unauthorized brands. These types of products can endanger your health. At Schaeffer Nutraceuticals we guarantee that our manufacturing process meets HACCP requirements for food production. Our Viproactive® dietary supplements have been produced without any genetic engineering, and they are also lactose- and gluten-free.
Before taking any dietary supplement, you should find out if you may be allergic to one or more of the ingredients.
4. Combine taking the dietary supplements with a balanced lifestyle
If you only rely on the dietary supplements and do not lead a balanced lifestyle by eating unhealthy food and not exercising, all efforts are hardly effective. Therefore, to ensure the best support for our health, it makes sense to combine the intake of dietary supplements with a nutritious diet and physical activity.
Schaeffer Nutraceuticals wishes you the best of health and we look forward to seeing you in unserem Online-Shop.
