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.
Is our acid alpha Lipoic acid R or S?
R/ Similarly to other substances, like amino acids that matter the type of molecular arrangement, in the case of Lipoic acid there are also two isomers, they are the same molecule but spatially arranged in a different way, said that they are stereoisomers and R and S. Are called the prefixes “R” and “s” of the alpha Lipoic acid refer to the way in which light is refracted through the molecules and their formulations (optical isomers). Our ALA formula is in a proportion 1:1 (50/50) r-ALA and S-Ala, which is the form that is most of the supplements. To make a product purely r-ALA (which is the natural form), would be immensely costly and would not be profitable for our customers. Most of the clinical research conducted at ALA and its health benefits, is carried out using the mixed form.
I am interested in acquiring Omega 3, but I have some food allergies. Seafood, anisakis and soybean; what I would like to know if the Omega 3 from fish oil or Omega 3 Orac have no soy, anisakis or seafood, or their traces or possible contamination.

Could I split or crush the Glucosamine Complete tablet?
R/ I am afraid although you can crush it, the taste will a little bit strong … as you’ve observed the product has substances that are spicy and that can feel bad if “it is sucks” that is what often happens in the case of people who cannot swallow well. Another thing would be that the tablet could be mix with a puree or something like this in a single scoop, not into all the puree. Alternatively, splitting the tablet in two parts can help swallowing with juice.

An elite professional has ordered to us Betaína PMG. Is it the same as our Betaine?.
R/ In Biochemistry and natural sciences in general PMG can mean several words in regarding with Betaine, I am afraid that it is a brand that really I don’t know here in our country, I know it, as a brand, in Eastern countries. The Betaine of Lamberts Healthcare is of the highest quality and purity (which can be one of the possible meanings PMG). Assuming it refers to a brand of Asian countries, it is possible here not be achieved.
When referring to “elite” professional I want to interpret it that refers to an athlete. In any case, I suggest you offer our product when you are sure that the athlete does not have any position of contraindications or problems of hyperacidity and heartburn. Athletes use them in their training, but it is important to make sure that he has not gastritis or digestive problem taking it correctly as shown in the container.

A client cannot swallow pills and it takes all crushed. Taking it crushed she tells me that she feels burning in the throat and that she could not take it. Can the cause of the burning be for being crushed?
R/ Many people uses to swallow crushed something that is ready to open in the stomach and they notice the taste of ingredients which is not always nice, and this can be perceived as irritation, (not necessarily as burning), but the Betaine personally I think first it would be better swallow it whole and secondly, to know if really needed. On the other hand, when you say crushed would it mean pulverized? It is very acidic, I repeat, I wouldn’t. Another thing is to cut into pieces and swallow-reaching the stomach ready to work, but “crushing, or pulverizing”, I would not…Unfortunately people sometimes have different words for the same thing.
“Can you recommend me something for the hair loss and arthrosis and bones?
A / For the issues you request, the specific product for hair loss is Florisene®.

“I don’t understand this relationship. On the jar appears 6,000 mg, but the nutritional facts declare: 120 mg of an extract 50:1.”
A / The accounts are made in the following way: A 50:1 extract means that each 1 mg of extract is equivalent to 50 mg of the whole herb. Then, by a rule of three: concentrate (extract) 120 mg amount a: 120 x 50 = 6,000 mg of the whole product without concentration. Rather than having 6,000 mg not concentrated there are 120 mg of concentrated that occupy less and are equivalent.”
“What product from the Sport Range would be desirable for Fitness?. Do it All in One?
A /All in All in OneOne is a great choice to have supplemented all that is important.

Thus also your effort in the gym and diet is supported.”
