CATÁLOGO DE PRODUCTOS
I wanted to ask you two questions about natural Beta-carotene 15mg with mixed carotenoids: 1. Is beta-carotene a synthetic or natural source? 2. Is sunflower seed oil hydrogenated?
R/ I can confirm that our natural beta-carotene is natural, and is obtained from Dunaliella saline algae. The sunflower seed oil we use is not hydrogenated.
How is 5-HTP absorbed?
R/ 5-HTP is absorbed through the intestine. As it does not require the presence of a transport molecule for absorption, it is not affected by the presence of other amino acids; and therefore it can be taken with meals without reducing its effectiveness. 5-HTP is well absorbed from an oral dose. 70% end up in the bloodstream.
Is Florisene suitable for men?
R /Florisene is a supplement that has high iron content and has been formulated for a particular type of hair loss related to low iron stores in the body. This is more common in women and may be appropriate only for a man whose iron stores are very low. This would be better determined by a blood test.
Hair loss in men is often hereditary or, sometimes, due to stress. Stress-related hair loss can be supported by the use of a good multivitamin and mineral formula and fish oil. Both supplements ensure that your body gets all the vital nutrients it needs for optimal health.
The extract of your Saw Palmetto is a dry extract?
Indeed, our standardized extracts are dry extracts. The presentation form is solid, so the product is a dry extract. In the case that they were fluid extracts, which is another type of extract, they would be liquid.
In the extracts, the concentration or presence of useful active ingredients, which are those that are standardized, are expressed in terms of a proportion such as 9: 1, in which case, each gram of extract corresponds to 9 grams of plant in origin. This facilitates the possibility of having a greater amount of the active substance, in less volume and with guarantees. The standardized dry extracts assure us a constant amount of the active ingredients of the plant and also constitute a guarantee of safety and efficacy.
In the case of our product Saw Palmeto, it is also a concentrated extract of berries in the form of dry extract, coming from the berries that is the raw material. With respect to the concentration and amount of active ingredient, we use an extract that is up to 12 times more concentrated than the cheapest powdered berries used by many companies, which consist mainly of fibers and sugars. Berries are collected at the optimum time for the preparation of our product, in order to provide the most appropriate level of active ingredients.
The fat-soluble extract of the berries is the one that contains the most important compounds that are mainly flavonoids, fatty acids, and sterols. On the other hand, the concentration process with the controls carried out ensures that the content of the active ingredients in the dry extracts remains optimized. Our formula has at least 85% fatty acid content, which is equivalent to 136 mg of fatty acids per capsule in an extract ratio of 9: 1.
In addition to Zincatest® (liquid), do you offer other taste test products for other nutrients?
R/ There is no similar test to Zincatest® for any other Lamberts® nutrient. The reason why Zincatest® works in a taste response is that zinc ions are involved in the activity of human taste buds and, therefore, have a direct interaction with our tongue to indicate a high or low level of zinc in the body. No other nutrient has this same effect.
Zincatest® liquid was developed by Dr. Derek Bryce-Smith as a reliable and easy-to-administer method to assess zinc status. Dr. Bryce-Smith (who was Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Reading) published his findings in a study titled Anorexia, Depression and Zinc Deficiency, and also published a book called Zinc Solution.
Does Lamberts® Sea Buckthorn Oil contain salicylates? I have noticed that some brands extract the oil from the seeds and the pulp, while the Lamberts formula is only extracted from the pulp. Why?
There are no salicylates present in the formula of Lamberts® sea buckthorn oil. Some products use a mixture of seeds and pulp, others only pulp. We chose to use the pulp due to the greater natural composition of the carotenoids, but the most important is the long history of fruit consumption. We always want to make sure that what we get has been part of the diet, in which the fruit has been for centuries.
Both seed oil and pulp oil can be applied topically.
Sorry, this entry is only available in European Spanish.
Can I take Lamberts® Quercetin if I am allergic to some vegetables?
A/ Our product is made from flowers of Sophorae japonica, which we know do not contain common allergens. It is typically harvested in Japan or Korea. We use pure quercetin in an easy way to absorb and the tablets are specially coated so that they can be easily swallowed.
Is Lamberts Korean Ginseng red ginseng?
R / Panax ginseng corresponds to the common name of red or white ginseng according to age. In the case of the root prepared by Lamberts it is 6 years. Therefore it is red. The label describes the milligrams of gingenosides 24, but it is not differentiated. The label indicates the equivalent amount of substance without extracting and the extract.
So 120mg of the extract equals 1200 mg without concentrating. In this way, the proportion of the extract or concentrate is explained in a simple way to the clients, that is, if we make the accounts, by a simple rule of 3: if 1200 have been reduced in the extract to 120; It will be like a 10: 1 excerpt. The forms are dry extract.
Is Cod Liver Oil in the form of triglycerides or in the form of ethyl esters?
R/ Lamberts Cod Liver Oil is in the form of triglycerides.
I am very interested in the ‘Eyewise’ product. Can you tell me the Latin name of the berry used in the product? What is zeaxanthin?
A/ The Latin name is rubus fruticosus. The zeaxanthin plant component is closely related to lutein and only has a slightly different chemical structure. In the diet, these two compounds appear naturally together, so we believe that both are important for the Eyewise formula. We also add some extracts of grape and cranberry plants
Where is histidine obtained from?
R / Histidine is obtained by natural fermentation of rice. There are no known allergens or sugar in the final product.
I would like to know what type of formulation Lamberts powder has ascorbic acid. There are many for sale and since vitamin C oxidizes very quickly in contact with air, I wondered if it chemically has any modification that makes it more durable.
R/ Our ascorbic acid is pure ascorbic acid and has not had any chemical alteration. Although it is prone to oxidation, our packaging is tested with the dose and the shelf life of the nutrient, it is within its specifications.
There are 5 parameters that affect the degradation of ascorbic acid: oxygen, metal ions, pH, light and temperature.
Oxidation of ascorbic acid can be reduced / avoided if no oxidant is present. When left open to air, ascorbic acid is prone to oxidation, but if our containers are kept closed when not in use, the amount of oxygen that enters and oxidizes ascorbic acid will be limited. Although opening and closing several times a day will allow oxygen to enter, the product has been tested to ensure it meets the specifications and the shelf life of 2 years.
It is known that light influences the rate of oxidation of vitamin C. Although the general advice is to keep it in a dark place, our HDPE containers act as an effective barrier against light.
The temperature determines the movement of the molecules, the higher the temperature, the more atoms and molecules will move. This makes it more likely that the molecules will find each other and, therefore, react. Therefore, a higher temperature often results in a higher reaction rate. This is also the case with the oxidation of vitamin C, while our HDPE containers (High Density Polyethylene) provide some protection against temperature, so we also recommend storage in a cool place.
How does Colladeen compare to Pycnogenol?
A/ Both Colladeen and Pycnogenol were inspired by Dr. Masqueliere’s work in this scientific and clinical subtype of polyphenol. Dr. Masqueliere’s work focused mainly on Pycnogenol obtained from the pine bark (Pinus pinaster), in Lamberts we decided to develop a source of anthocyanins that is natural for the diet and use grape vitis vinifera.
An anthocyanidin is an important polyphenol known to give rise to longer chain versions of itself, known as polymers (or oligomers). When more than 2, but less than 5 of these molecules, bind together they are known as oligomeric procyanindins (also known as OPCs) or PCO (procyanidolic oligomers or proanthocyanidins).
Pycnogenol (pine bark extract) is standardized to provide 65-75% of OPC in total, however, as this is a patented ingredient, only the total weight of the compound is seen on the product labels. In the Lamberts formula, the 40 mg Pycnogenol capsule will provide between 26-30 mg of OPC. Therefore, as it is the OPCs that provide the clinical benefits, we have taken the additional investment to standardize this in Colladeen, where each Colladeen tablet contains 160 mg of real OPCs.
In which form is L-Glutathione?
R / Our L-Glutathione Complex is in the reduced form and we use it since it is the biologically active form.
