Q: Are there any side effects from taking nutritional supplements and prescription medications at the same time?
A: If you take prescription drugs and plan to complement your diet with a nutritional supplement, you should consult your physician or other health-care professional.
Q: Why does GVI offer so many different formulations?
A: Each person’s body chemistry and metabolism are different. Some people may benefit more from the ingredients in one formula than from the ingredients in another. We try to offer as many natural options as possible. The recommended course of action is to take a given formula for a few months.
Q: Should I talk to my doctor about nutritional supplements?
A: Yes. Each person’s body chemistry and metabolism are different, so any issues about nutritional formulas should be discussed with your physician or other health-care professional.
Q: Why do some products come in tablet form and others in capsule form?
A: Our research and development team has found that many natural formulas work better in a specific form, such as capsule, tablet, spray or cream. Therefore, formulas are designed and offered in the form most easily absorbed. We are working to offer more choices based on our customers’ feedback, provided we can be sure the ingredients will still perform to their potential. For example, Mega MSM is offered in both capsule and powder forms so you can choose whichever works better for you.
Q: Are these products approved by the FDA?
A: Nutritional supplements do not require FDA approval. To achieve the highest quality, we employ a strict control process that includes random tests of our products by independent laboratories to ensure purity of key ingredients.
Q: Which products will work best for me?
A: Unfortunately, we can’t answer questions relating to personal health issues. We encourage you to consult your doctor or other qualified alternative health-care professional if you want to learn more about how specific vitamins, herbs and other natural substances might benefit you.
Q: Why can’t I purchase GVI supplements in stores?
A: The potency of nutritional supplements can be affected by temperature, humidity and time. Purchasing directly from us, rather than from stores, is the only way we can ensure that you receive a quality-controlled batch of our cutting-edge, rigorously tested formulas.
