Related Technical Questions with the product:
Is Glucosamine 500 MG of 90 capsules glutamine neutral? It is what has been recommended to do intermittent fasting, and if you have any more information I would appreciate it.
A/ Thank you very much for your confidence in the brand. I suppose there is a wording error in your question since you mention glucosamine first and then glutamine in capsules. I am assuming you refer to glutamine, however, I would like to clarify that glucosamine is an active principle that contains glutamine and a sugar molecule, found mainly in the exoskeleton of arthropods, in the cell wall of fungi and in many other organisms , being the most abundant monosaccharide.
If it is taken in an intermittent fast, the carbohydrate intake that it would entail and the possibility of breaking the fast should be taken into account.
Having made this clarification and returning to the subject of glutamine, it is the most abundant non-essential amino acid of natural origin in the body. We assume that you have been recommended to take glutamine during intermittent fasting to avoid muscle catabolism, which would be an appropriate recommendation. When you refers to “neutral”, I imagine it means that it does not contain anything else. We can tell you our glutamine is 100% pure. For more information:
The amino acids in LAMBERTS® are presented in “free form”, that is, they are ready to be absorbed and used by the body (they do not need to be digested). Our capsules are made in the UK under strict GMP pharmaceutical manufacturing standards and are suitable for vegetarians.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Other food supplements with Acidophilus Extra 10" title_tag="h2"]
Can I take other food supplements with Acidophilus Extra 10? What nutrients would complement it?
A/ There is no problem in taking other supplements with this product. However, using oral antibiotics at the same time could reduce their effectiveness.
Supplements containing FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides), which is a form of soluble fiber, are relevant as harmless live bacteria use it as a food source. By taking FOS, you can selectively feed beneficial live bacteria, allowing them to flourish and grow relative to pathogenic bacteria. Lamberts FOS is a pure natural soluble fiber derived from chicory roots.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> How to take the Omega 3" title_tag="h2"]
I have bought the omega 3 bottle and I find that the pills are great. If they are split with a knife, for example, is their value lost? What would be the way to take them? When you say with food, do you mean to take them with any food, or with fish?
A/ Lamberts Omega 3 comes in capsules, so it cannot be split, but you can puncture the capsule and drink the liquid it contains without affecting the product. As for taking it with food, we refer to any food, but we recommend that it be fatty foods, since as they are fat-soluble compounds they favor their absorption (a salad with olive oil, for example).[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Can I take a half pill of Betaine?" title_tag="h2"]
I am contacting you because my doctor prescribed your betaine supplement with the dosage of half a pill a day in the beginning, to make sure I feel good before taking a full pill. However, it strikes me that in the supplement you have put the instruction to “swallow the tablet whole”. What are these indications due to? Would it then be out of the question to take half a pill as prescribed?
A/ We instruct this on the label because many people, when swallowing the crushed or broken tablet which is prepared to open in the stomach, notice the taste of the ingredients, which is not always pleasant, and this can be perceived as irritation, (not necessarily as burning). Betaine is precisely a product that we DO NOT recommend crushing the tablet, since it is very acidic. Therefore, it would be better to swallow it whole or cut it in two and then swallow it. The only drawback is that you may notice a strong taste when you put it in your mouth and we cannot guarantee that exactly half of the tablet contains half the dose, since it is not marked for that use.
The tablets in this supplement are designed to dissolve in the stomach, which is where acidification is required, as it releases hydrochloric acid, the same acid that occurs naturally in the stomach (but does not alter gastric acidity). In this way it helps to replace part of the acidity lost in the stomach, thus cooperating in the digestion of food.
Therefore, the tablets are made to serve a purpose during their disintegration time. To achieve this objective, excipients are used (also called inactive ingredients, since they do not have any nutritional contribution). If the tablet breaks, it may cause discomfort in some sensitive stomachs, since the disintegration objective would not be met in the way that was established in the manufacture of the tablet. It is important to be sure that the problem is hypo or achlorhydria. If not, you could have problems due to improper use.
Food supplements are not drugs, despite the fact that we find them in tablet or capsule forms, but necessary nutrients, which on many occasions we cannot adequately acquire from a regular diet, but which, as they are concentrated healthy substances, collaborate in optimally completing our individual nutritional requirements.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Turmeric 20.000 mg: ¿20.000 mg of what?" title_tag="h2"]
Hello, I have a question about one of your products: Turmeric 20,000 mg, with 500 mg of extract. I would like to know what this product contains, what is 20,000 mg of what? And it only has 500 mg of what?
A/ The product reports the following on its label:
Each tablet delivers: Curcuma longa root extract from 20,000 mg of the spice (As 500 mg of a standardized 40: 1 extract) Contributing 95% curcuminoids.
Each tablet provides: Curcuma Longa Root Extract from 20,000 mg of the species (as 500 mg of a standardized 40:1 extract) .
The calculations are made as follows: A “40: 1” extract means that each 1 mg of extract is equivalent to 40 mg of the no-concentrated product.
Then, by a rule of three: 500 mg of concentrate (extract) equals: 500 x 40 = 20,000 mg of no-concentrated product.
Instead of having 20,000 mg no-concentrated, there are 500 mg concentrates, which take up less and are equivalent.
In short, 20,000mg of the spice is used to achieve 500mg in the form of an extract.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Lamberts product about to expire: does it lose nutritional properties? " title_tag="h2"]

From this date, the product will begin to lose the potency (milligrams or micrograms) indicated on the label, but it does not mean that it is in bad condition.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Vitamin E: origin of the d alpha tocopherol" title_tag="h2"]
I have bought your 268mg vitamin e and my question is: What is the origin of the d alpha tocopherol in the product? What about the other tocopherols present? Do they come from the sunflower? Do any of them come from soybeans?
A/ LAMBERTS® declares both active and inactive ingredients on its labels. Regarding allergens, if the product contains an allergen (such as soy or gluten, for example), we indicate it on the label in “bold”. If it is not indicated on the label, it means that the product does not contain it. Therefore, this product is made from Sunflower Seed Oil and not from Soy.
Example of products that contain possible allergens and puts it on the label: Phosphatidyl Serine (contains soy, and puts it on the label), Complete Glucosamine (contains shellfish and puts it on the label), Complete Gainer (contains gluten, milk and soy and what puts the label), Whey Protein. No Flavor or Aroma (Contains milk and soy. Made in a factory that uses: cereals).
Our two individual vitamin E formulations (250 IU and 400 IU) contain mixed tocopherols (alpha, beta, gamma and delta). However, we do not quantify the additional tocopherols and standardize only d-alpha tocopherol, as the levels of the other nutrients tend to vary from batch to batch.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> MSM compatible with sulfonamide allergy" title_tag="h2"]
I have purchased a container of the MSM , and I am allergic to sulfonamide. I can take it? Is it incompatible with my allergy?
R) There is a tendency to confuse MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) with sulfa drugs or to believe that they are similar compounds due to the phonetic proximity between them when nothing is further from the truth.
A sulfonamide is a synthetic, broad-spectrum, bacteriostatic, sulfonamide-derived chemical. Sulfa drugs are used as antibiotics, antiparasitics, and coccidiostats in the treatment of infectious diseases. On the contrary, MSM is a form of organic sulfur required by the body for the maintenance of healthy connective tissues, for proper enzymatic function and hormonal balance, together with an adequate functioning of the immune system. Our MSM LAMBERTS® is a pure form of this compound and is safe to take long term. It is made in the United Kingdom under strict GMP pharmaceutical manufacturing standards and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians since it is of natural origin and is extracted from the birch tree.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Difference amongst products made from Turmeric." title_tag="h2"]
I would like to know what is the difference amongst your products made from Turmeric.
R) At Lamberts we have 4 formulations whose main component is Turmeric. They are:
Turmemoric (Code 8541), Quick Release Turmeric (Code 8548), Turmeric 20 000mg (Code 8571) and Curcumin Ultra (Code 8590). The main differences between them lie in the concentration of their extracts and in the disintegration time of their tablets.
Turmemoric: This formula provides, for 2 tablets 200 mg of turmeric extract with 95% curcumin, combined with 10 mg of lutein, which is one of the most important carotenoids in the diet, as well as zeaxanthin, rosemary, vitamin B12 and Zinc. We include rosemary as an extract to preserve the active components. Vitamin B12 is present for its useful contribution to normal neurological and psychological functions. Zinc also plays an important role in the product by assisting normal cognitive function. This is easy to differentiate because it has other nutrients in its composition.
Quick Release Turmeric: Providing 200 mg of turmeric extract with 95% curcumin per 1 tablet. The tablets in this formulation are fast release, since they disintegrate between 15 and 30 minutes to achieve faster absorption by the body.
These tablets have been specifically formulated using a cellulose matrix that dissolves quickly in contact with moisture, helping them to disintegrate in the intestine more quickly and facilitating a more dynamic absorption of the nutrient.
Turmeric 20,000 mg: This presentation provides 500 mg of turmeric extract per 1 tablet with 95% curcuminoids or curcumin and the disintegration time is less than 1 hour.
Curcumin Ultra: This product provides 500 mg of Curcuwin per 1 tablet through a technically advanced turmeric extract that has been specially prepared to considerably increase its absorption from the digestive system. It is manufactured using patented UltraSOL ™ technology. This is a molecular dispersion process, it improves the bioavailability of poorly absorbed nutrients and increases the dispersion of fat-soluble ingredients in water. Disintegration time is less than 1 hour.

R) Lamberts® states on its product labels all ingredients, both active and inactive (excipients), and possible allergens in bold. It is legally mandatory to reflect on the labels of any product the possible allergens that contain it and the precautions, that is why we faithfully reflect the composition of the product on the label.

I was taking two Osteoguard tablets a day, for about two months I have switched to Osteoguard ADVANCE tablets and continue to take two tablets. The question that arises is because I saw an article that says that an Osteoguard ADVANCE tablet contains 250 mg of calcium and an Osteoguard tablet contains 500 mg of calcium. I would like to know the exact equivalence that I should take of Osteoguard ADVANCE so that it is equivalent to the two Osteoguard tablets that I took previously.
R/ If you want to reach the calcium level provided by 2 Osteoguard® tablets, you would have to take 4 Osteoguard® Advance. Magnesium intake would double to 500 mg (which is still at an acceptable intake level). However, the dose of vitamin K2 would go from 90 µg to 180 µg, which exceeds the recommended daily dose so we cannot advise you to double the intake of the Osteoguard® Advance product.
Remember that food supplements are not drugs, even though we find them in tablet or capsule forms, but rather necessary nutrients, which in many cases we cannot adequately acquire from a regular diet, but since they are concentrated healthy substances, They collaborate optimally completing our individual nutritional requirements and that intervene in numerous chemical processes in the body, helping in many health disorders. The dose should be as indicated on the product label or directed by a health professional who handles the case in a personalized way.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Vitamins C: absortion, remain in the body and integration in cellular metabolism" title_tag="h2"]
I would like information about the non-acidic vitamins C and the sustained-release vitamin C ascorbic acid, which is better absorbed, which remains in the body longer and which participates and is better integrated in cellular metabolism.
R) To answer your question it is necessary to analyze all forms of vitamin C available in supplement form.
Ascorbic acid is the form of vitamin C that is found naturally in food. It has good bioavailability, but some people find it too acidic in the gut and cannot tolerate high doses.
Mineral ascorbates such as calcium magnesium ascorbate are often referred to as “buffered” vitamin C. Many people consider them to be milder forms of vitamin C that are better tolerated by the intestines and stomach. However, it is important to consider the accompanying mineral dosage (calcium, magnesium, etc.) when taking higher levels. Clinical trials have shown that calcium ascorbate was better absorbed and therefore was present at higher plasma levels than ascorbic acid.
Ester-C® is a proprietary form of vitamin C (primarily calcium ascorbate) that has been shown to be well absorbed and tolerated in the intestine like other mineral ascorbates. In their literature, the manufacturers claim that metabolites, especially threonate, increase the bioavailability of vitamin C in this product, and they indicate that they have conducted a human study demonstrating increased bioavailability of vitamin C.
Extended-release vitamin C is often the preferred option, as vitamin C has better bioavailability when taken in smaller doses throughout the day. A time-release formula aims to solve this problem without taking multiple tablets, releasing vitamin C slowly throughout the day. Additionally, studies have shown that ascorbic acid, combined with citrus bioflavonoids, is more bioavailable than the synthetic form of ascorbic acid alone. Bioflavonoids increase the bioavailability of Vitamin C by 35%. The addition of Rosehip in the product further increases its bioavailability.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Omega 3 in sea buckthorn" title_tag="h2"]
How much omega 3 does sea buckthorn contain? In the formulary it says that it contains omega 3, 6, 9 but I don’t understand it. Can you clarify it for me please.
R/ Sea buckthorn berries are one of the richest fruits in vitamin C, they are also rich in vitamins A, E, B1, K, mucilage, carotenoids, organic acids, minerals (iron and potassium), antioxidants (flavonoids and anthocyanins) and It is a natural source of omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. However, omega 7 (palmitoleic) is the predominant one.
Although it is a vegetable source of omega 3 (this is what makes it suitable for vegetarians and vegans), the product is not considered a supplement of omega 3 but of omega 7 (that is why the contribution in other fatty acids or other aforementioned compounds that are part of its chemical composition).Omega 7 is present in sea buckthorn oil in a proportion of 28%, and it is with which most of the clinical studies have been done. This gives them a very beneficial action on the hydration and regeneration of the skin and mucous membranes.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Sweetener in the Energy Drink" title_tag="h2"]
Why do you use sweetener in the Energy Drink product?
R/The sweetener used in this product is Sucralose and its purpose is to contribute to a better taste. The purpose of using Sucralose is to avoid natural sugars, and when we talk about natural sweeteners they are generally: coconut sugar, honey, maple syrup and molasses that could not be used in the formulation of a powdered drink.
Also, most sports users are looking for a sugar-free product. The EFSA approved the health claims on Sucralose, among others, in relation to oral health and the control of blood sugar levels, so it has been selected for its ability to help control blood sugar levels. of sugar.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Candaway gluten free?" title_tag="h2"]
