Frequently Asked Questions Essentials for Men and Women
Can Essentials be used with other IsaGenix products?
Absolutely. In fact, Essentials are best used with Ageless Actives™ for the greatest antioxidant benefits.
If this has age-defying properties, do I really need to take Ageless Actives™?
While it’s not necessary, it is recommended because Ageless Actives contains ingredients not found in Essentials for Men and Essentials for Women, including CoQ10 and Resveratrol, which are key for diminishing the cumulative effects of aging.
Why should I take a multivitamin?
According to a review in the Journal of American Medical Association in 2002, there is “strong evidence” that the North American diet only provides “suboptimal levels” of vitamins and minerals and that supplementation with a multivitamin dietary supplement can help to bolster long-term cardiovascular health, cell health and bone health. Essentials contain the vitamins and minerals in the amounts needed to combat the effects of age on the body and obtain the healthiest possible future.
I’ve always taken a once dailymultivitamin because it’s convenient.Why should I change?
While a once daily multivitamin may breakdown in your stomach, the vitamins and minerals may not be completely absorbed by your body. In fact, your body can only absorb so much nutrition at a given time before it flushes out what it fails to absorb. That’s why we recommend taking four tablets throughout the day. This ensures that your body is able to efficiently absorb all of the nutrients. Essentials tablets are best taken with meals throughout the day.
Should I take Essentials if I’m on medications?
Essentials were designed to be as safe as possible with use of medications. However, as always and with any ingestible supplement, we recommend you consult with your physician before use.
What if I forget to take a dose?
If you miss a dose, there is no need to take more with the next dose. Simply continue with the regular schedule.
