Frequently Asked Questions
Every living cell needs vitamins and minerals. We need a regular and adequate amount of vitamins and minerals to stay healthy and to release energy in the body. Ideally, a sufficient and balanced diet should cover the overall micronutrient requirements. However it can be hard to get enough nutrients from diet alone. Small micronutrient deficiencies are hard for your doctor to spot. Additionally, symptoms are often not attributed to micronutrients. Typically, you feel a lack of energy in two ways: physical (fatigue and weakness, lack of well-being, loss of appetite and increased susceptibility to infections) and mental (lack of mental sharpness, less pleasure and mood decline). That’s why a regular intake of Supradyn is recommended to help release the body’s own energy
It would be nice if we could get all our vitamins and minerals from a normal, daily diet. However, for all kinds of reasons, it can be a challenge. Many of us don’t have the time to prepare healthy food, which means we can end up eating processed foods or fast foods, which may not contain all the micronutrients we need. You should always start by trying to improve your daily diet but it’s a good idea to supplement it with a daily Supradyn tablet. By doing this, you can be sure you’re getting the micronutrients you may need, at the level needed, to help releasing your body’s own energy flow.
Many people rely on stimulants such as caffeine or chocolate, but this is only a short-term solution that depletes energy sources even more. The right formula of micronutrients in Supradyn helps you make the most of the energy that your body stores naturally.
Yes, all Supradyn brands can be taken every day throughout the year. In fact, it’s recommended you take the products daily over a period of 60 days at least. Supradyn should not, however be used to replace a healthy, balanced diet. And, given the different factors affecting the vitamin status of the body, a multivitamin, unlike a painkiller, cannot have an immediate effect on the body. To achieve optimal vitamin levels, you should take multivitamins regularly over a longer period. The exact number of days it takes to reach this level depends on your age and other unique factors.
You can take Supradyn at any time. However, to help make sure you’re set up for a successful day, we recommend you make Supradyn part of your daily morning routine. Take all Supradyn products with or after a meal to enhance absorption.
RDA stands for recommended daily allowance. This is the daily amount of a vitamin or mineral that the average healthy person needs to prevent deficiency. The percentage of RDA in a nutritional supplement tells you how much of a vitamin or mineral's RDA you can get from each dose.
No. Sometimes, the vitamins in Supradyn are above the recommended daily amount (RDA). However, they’re all below the Upper Safe Levels. The RDA of vitamins is an EU-recommended allowance to prevent deficiency. Some supplements contain levels of vitamins and minerals above this because it is still safe and may be associated with certain health benefits. For most vitamins and minerals, Upper Safe Levels have also been established. This means both manufacturers and consumers know the levels of intake which allow people to optimise their diets safely.
Supradyn contains the vitamin B2 (riboflavin). It's this vitamin that can make your urine more intense in colour. B vitamins are water-soluble and anything that your body does not need is passed out in the urine.
