The benefits of dietary supplements are increasingly recognized by international health sector agencies such as EFSA Europe, CRN, FDA and many others.
We offer in this section the answers to the questions sent to us by customers and consumers. These are posted for informational purposes only and with no intention to prescribe or replace the advice of a health professional.
Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
I am interested in the composition of Glutamine powder.
R / Our Glutamine Powder is 100% pure glutamine in free form (free form) and can be absorbed immediately. We use a grade of glutamine suitable for clinical use and our product is manufactured and tested in the UK under the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) manufacturing standards. Being powder does not carry excipients, inactive nutrients used for the manufacture of tablets or capsules.
I would like to know how many months Maxi Hair should take. Some time ago a dermatologist recommended me to take this hair product but I do not remember for how long.
R / A multi-nutrient formula is often the mainstay of a supplementation program, to which other nutrients such as Evening Primrose Oil, herbal extracts etc. can be added. The nutrients in Maxi-Hair® are presented at significant levels, so this product can be used as a complete multi-unit, which could replace any other multiple formula that is being taken. It contains a good selection of nutrients, including B vitamins and biotin, which contribute to the normal maintenance of the skin, hair and nails.
Maxi Hair contains a multi-nutrient broad spectrum of important nutrients, and therefore can always be taken as a support when the regular diet we cannot get the necessary vitamins and minerals.
Is it advisable to continue taking StrongStart® MVM after giving birth?
R/Personally I usually recommend to my patients to take it throughout the period of lactation even. If for some reason, there is not breastfeeding, continue taking a couple of months for a good recovery.
I would like to please know which of the two products is more indicated for the growth of children, MultiGuard® or Omega 3 for Kids.
R/ Multi-Guard® for Kids is a multi-nutrient formula that provides adequate levels of all important vitamins and trace minerals, as it contains, among others, vitamin D and calcium which are necessary for the normal growth and development of bones; iodine that contributes to the normal growth of children and iron that is important for cognitive development. A multi-nutrient formula is often the mainstay of a supplementation program. In addition, you could add other nutrients such as omega 3, as more and more clinical studies confirm its contribution to normal development in children. Remember that any nutritional supplement should be consulted with the child’s pediatrician.
I am very interested in your fruit concentrates, but I would like to know if they have lowered the fructose levels. I am fructose intolerant.
R/ In Lamberts we have two types of fruit concentrate, and neither contain artificial sweeteners, which would be a legal obligation to reflect on the product label. They are also suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and free of lactose and gelatin.
Good afternoon, could you confirm if the multivitamin A-Z is suitable for people with celiac disease?
R/ Lamberts® declares on the labels of its products all ingredients, both active and inactive (excipients), and possible allergens in bold. It is legally required to reflect on the labels of any product the possible allergens that contain it that is why when a LAMBERTS® product has it in its composition, it is shown on the label.
Examples of products containing potential allergens and reflected on the label are: Phosphatidylserine (contains soy, and label it), Glucosamine Complete (contains seafood and label), Complete Gainer (contains gluten).
The following lists of allergens are excluded from A to Z: wheat, gluten, barley, soy, eggs, milk and dairy products, lactose, nuts, sulfites, celery, fish, shellfish and yeast.
I wanted to receive information about vitamin D3. Especially how to take it and if you can maintain a very long-term treatment or you have to take breaks since it is fat-soluble.
R / LAMBERTS® offer 3 presentations of vitamin D with different potencies in its natural form, according to each individual need: 400 IU (10μg), 1000 IU (25μg) and 4000 IU (100μg). Vitamin D can also be found in the multi-nutrient formulas of LAMBERTS® and in products such as: Vitamin D3+K2, Osteoguard®, Chewable Calcium and Cold Liver Oil.
This vitamin, like other fat-soluble nutrients, can be measured in Micrograms (μg) or in International Units (IU). 1 IU of vitamin D = 0.025 μg of colecalciferol.
Vitamin D is called “the sun’s vitamin”. It is essential for bone health and can slow the progression of osteoporosis, strengthen the immune system and help prevent some diseases. There are numerous studies on vitamin D that support the argument that we should all monitor our intake of vitamin D. What’s more, the body’s ability to produce vitamin D decreases with age, so vitamin D deficiencies are common in people greater.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be ingested with food or manufactured by the body as a result of the incidence of sunlight on our skin. People with little exposure to sunlight often decide to supplement their diet with an extra supply of vitamin D. It is also important for the absorption and normal use of calcium and phosphorus, and contributes to the process of cell division.
Without enough vitamin D, the body cannot absorb calcium from food or supplements. When blood calcium levels are low, the body will remove calcium from the bones into the blood to supply the muscles (especially the heart), and the nerves with the amount they need. Over time, this reassignment of calcium leads to a loss of bone mass.
Therefore vitamin D contributes to reduce the risk of falls related to postural instability and muscle weakness. Falls are a risk factor for bone fractures in men and women from 60 years and this benefit is achieved with a dose of 20 μg daily. Today scientists continue to discover more functions of vitamin D and health professionals recommend their intake, monitoring the appropriate levels by analytics.
We need information on MSM (methylsulphonylmethane) powder or capsules, recommended daily dose, if it is pure, etc.
A/ The LAMBERTS® MSM is a pure form of this compound, and it is safe to take long term. Our supplement provides 1000 mg of MSM in each tablet. This product contains pure grade MSM of the pharmaceutical GMP standard and is manufactured and approved in the United Kingdom. This product is suitable for vegetarians; it is free of wheat, gluten, yeast, dairy products, soy, nuts and seafood. It is also suitable for all adults; however, it is not suitable during pregnancy and lactation. The way to take it must be as indicated on the label.
I would like information on your product St. John’s Wort in terms of quality and power.
A/ St. John’s Wort, also known as Hypericum (Hypericum perforatum), is a perennial plant native to many parts of the world, including Europe and the United States. It gets its name because it flowers around the festival of St. John.
One of the most important compounds found in the herb of St. John’s Wort is hypericin, which is the compound used as a standardization marker in the extract of our product, each tablet providing 1000 μg of hypericin.
LAMBERTS® has worked closely with producers specialized in this plant extract to ensure the consistency of the quality and power of our product.
Our products are concentrated nutrients or herbal extracts and not medicines, even though we find them in capsule or tablet forms. They are not substitutes for a healthy and balanced diet, but concentrated healthy substances that collaborate in optimally completing the necessary individual requirements. For the use of this extract we recommend the previous evaluation of the health professional.
Do you know the % of the anthraquinone in your Aloe Vera?
A/ Our Aloe Vera extract does not contain anthraquinones or any of the ‘bitter aloes’ as these are found in the roots of the aloe plant. Our extract comes from the leaves. Generally, anthraquinones are not dangerous and some customers may be actively seeking them to help with constipation.
We need you to tell us if the GARLIC that you have is deodorized.
A/ LAMBERTS’® Garlic tablets (1650 mg) are carefully formulated to ensure that the “allicin potential” is maintained; In addition, its special coating reduces the smell of garlic. It is deodorized.
Each tablet contains an amount of garlic equivalent to 1650 mg of fresh garlic, with an allicin potential of 5500 μg. The garlic used in these tablets has a nutritional profile much more similar to that of natural garlic than that of many low-price brands on the market.
The combination of such a high dose of the volatile oils in our formulas, combined with the tablet formation process, means that between 40-60 minutes it takes the tablet to break down, most of the contents of the tablet have made it through the acidic area of the stomach.
Where are vitamins D3+K2 taken from?
A/ Vitamin K2 is from fermented chickpeas, and Vitamin D is obtained from lanolin, as is for all Lamberts products containing vitamin D.
I wanted to know if you have a product that provides elastin and collagen for the joints.
A/ We do not have any product that provides collagen directly, instead we have products with nutrients that help increase the natural production of collagen in the body. Below we summarize the nutrients that could be useful for that purpose.
It is believed that the substances called anthocyanidins (powerful antioxidants belonging to the family of flavonoids, vegetable chemicals) help to increase the amount of vitamin C in your body, as well as to strengthen collagen. They can also increase the production of elastin, a substance that gives the skin its elasticity. The anthocyanidins are found in the skin of dark fruits and with varied colors such as: blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and red grapes. Flavonoids are the pigments that give these fruits their distinctive color. Another way to consume them is in the form of a nutritional supplement.
Silicon, although found only in minute quantities in the body, is necessary for cell growth and is present in almost all structurally strong tissues such as arteries, tendons, trachea, connective tissue, hair, cornea and nails. Good dietary sources of silicon are cereals such as oats, barley and rice, but refining processes can eliminate much of this mineral away. Silicon contributes to the structure and elasticity of the connective tissue and seems to play an important role in bone synthesis and cartilage collagen.
What is the source of raw material for our Ubiquinol and Ubiquinone?
Our Ubiquinoll and Ubiquinona is from Kaneka QH?
Can you confirm if 1000 mg of Vitex Agnus is added for each tablet? Indicateing below “as 100 mg of a 10: 1 extract” it leads to confusion.
R. Herbal extracts are dry extract. The accounts are made in the following way: 100 mg of an extract 10: 1 means that each 1 mg of extract is equivalent to 100 mg of the product without concentrating. Then, by a rule of three: 100 mg of concentrate (extract) equal to: 100 x 10 = 1,000 mg of product without concentrating. “Instead of having 1,000 mg without concentrating, there are 100 mg concentrated, which occupy less and are equivalent. Vitex agnus-castus: 1000 mg (as 100 mg of an extract 10: 1)
I want to know how much d-alpha tocopherol the encapsulation of the Ref. 8508 Fish Oil.
A) LAMBERTS® fish oil undergoes a sophisticated 5-stage purification process that removes aflatoxins, heavy metals, antibiotics, PCBs, dioxins, PAHs, irradiated ingredients and pesticides, as well as any other contaminants. Subsequently while it is inside the capsules, the oil is protected from oxidation by the addition of natural vitamin E. This product contains 5 mg in its d-alpha tocopherol form.
My dog is allergic to cod oil, so I need to know which is the source of the Omega 3 of the product Omega 3 for Dogs and Cats (Code 8996-120).
A. Pet fish oil is from the same source, and therefore has the same high standards in quality tests, as Lamberts pure fish oil (8508). That is why it is indicated on the label that it is “fish body oil”. As we know, it is safer to give Omega 3 dogs from fish oil, as it has all the benefits but none of the drawbacks such as the inclusion of vitamin A, as it can become toxic at higher doses (so that your dietary intake should be considered as a whole).
I want to know if Omega 3 for Kids has gluten.
A. We confirm that our Omega 3 for Kids is free of gluten. Gluten is an allergen and as such it is legally required to reflect it on the product label. If it´s not written, is because it does not contain it. In the labels of our products we declare all ingredients, both active and inactive (excipients).
Is Myo inositol d-chiroinositol?
R/There are different forms of Inositol. Ours is MYO and not D-chiro. Myo-inositol is the most studied and is more effective than the other forms of Inositol. Some products are making a 40:1 mix from Myo to D-Chiro, but research still favors the myo.
I am taking two Lamberts® products, and I would like to know if they are purified. For me it is important to know that the supplements that are taken do not carry toxic substances.
A. The purity of the raw material is an important consideration in terms of quality.
All of our raw materials are tested in the UK to ensure they meet our strict quality standards before encapsulating and packaging for our customers.
Our products are manufactured in the United Kingdom under the strict standards of pharmaceutical manufacturing GMP “Good Manufacturing Practice”.
Here you can see the explanation.
I bought the Florisene product to try to increase the ferritin, and they tell me many options. I would like to know what is the best way to take it.
A. The best way to take the Florisene product is exactly as indicated on the label. Sometimes people add other variants that may also work, but in general we must take food supplements as described on the label of them.
Do you have a specific product with plant antioxidants (extracts of: green tea, rosemary and oregano) to complement with the Omega 3 Ultra?
R/ The body produces its own antioxidants which neutralize the effects of free radicals, but the vitamins, minerals and compounds known as phytochemicals in plant foods provide an extra value. Its best ingestion and efficacy is recommended in standardized extracts of high power and quality. The use of plant products and medicinal plants in various forms of preparations is very old, and its ingestion for therapeutic purposes was, for centuries, the main therapeutic resource available.
Hello because of the warning in so many media about palm oil, can you tell me what product Lamberts contains?
A / You can be calm. No Lamberts® product contains palm oil. all our fatty acids are also free of palm oil. Check our website and the tab of each product is included the label, which describes all the ingredients contained in the products.
Where do the blioflavonoids used in Lamberts® products come from?
R/ Our blioflavonoids come from citrus fruits. Blioflavonoids are vegetable substances, water soluble molecules and they represent a big part of the colorants in yellow, red and blue vegetables.
They are usually found in the inner white part of citrus skin, amongst them the most know are rutin, quercetin, citrine and hesperidin. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids normally occur together in nature. Bioflavonoids have antioxidant properties very similar to those of vitamin C, and invitro, have been shown to protect vitamin C.
Is 5HTP free of Peak X?
R/ We can confirm that our 5 HTP is free of the contaminant Peak X. I enclose the information that you can find in our web and that it is applied in all our nutritional supplements. “All our products are manufactured under the GMP manufacturing standards” Good Manufacturing Practice “(quality control established by WHO). It is the best system to guarantee the quality of the medicines and is the best control that can assure the quality of the product that is received.
A) They involve the integral control of processing from the selection of raw materials, adequate facilities, techniques for processing, cleaning, staff training, packaging, labeling, transportation, storage and all that may directly or indirectly affect The product quality
B) The factory receives periodic, impromptu inspections by the UK Department of Health Medicines Agency, the body that controls the enforcement of these standards in England. They take lots of samples from different lots and analyze them.
C) The GMP standards do not constitute a legal requirement for the manufacture of food supplements, in addition they are very expensive, and because of this many manufacturers of nutritional supplements do not operate under these standards.
D) We have a team of expert buyers, who look around the world, and select the best raw materials in their natural form.
E) Each raw material comes to us with its corresponding Certificate of Analysis. In our laboratory several samples are taken and the power is analyzed by HPLC + and then passed to the analysis for the detection of pesticides, herbicides, microbial contamination, aflatoxins, fungi, dioxins, and contaminants such as heavy metals.
