1) What is VITAFORCE?
VITAFORCE is the premier vitamin and mineral supplement in existence. It is a powder composed of nutrient dense, organic super foods, vegetables and fruits. VITAFORCE provides all the nutrients you need daily in the way nature
intended -- from food.
2) Who should take VITAFORCE?
Almost anyone would benefit by taking VITAFORCE. It is ideal for adults, children, the elderly, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, athletes and those who are ill or have degenerative diseases. If you are pregnant or lactating, always consult a health care professional before beginning any supplement program.
3) If I take VITAFORCE, do I still need to take a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement?
No. VITAFORCE replaces and greatly improves upon your daily multivitamin and mineral supplement.
4) If I take VITAFORCE, do I need to continue to take any other "super food" or "green powder" supplement?
No. VITAFORCE provides you with vastly superior nutrition to any other super food or green powder supplement.
5) I have been taking another "super food" or "green powder" supplement for a long time. How do I know that VITAFORCE is superior to the one I am taking?
It is really very simple. Compare the nutrient label for VITAFORCE to any other "super food" or "green powder" supplement. You will see that VITAFORCE provides you with a perfect balance of all the vitamins and minerals you need daily from food. Other "super food" or "green powder" supplements simply do not have the wide array and vast quantities of nutrients that VITAFORCE possesses. This is made clear by their nutritional labels, or in many cases, by their lack of nutritional labels.
Some green food powders do have impressive vitamin labels, but the nutrients in those are not from the whole food ingredients. Instead, they are supplemented in with isolated and/or synthetic nutrients which are not ideal for health. Also, these green food powders that add in supplemental nutrients do not have optimal ratios and quantities of nutrients.
Other powders also often contain cheap fillers or herbs, which is not ideal for a daily vitamin and mineral supplement.
6) What does VITAFORCE taste like?
VITAFORCE has a pleasant, mild taste, and is well tolerated by those who do not like the taste of other green powders.
7) Is there any caffeine or are there any herbs in VITAFORCE?
8) If I take VITAFORCE, will it give me more energy?
Yes. Many people who take VITAFORCE in the morning notice a balanced, sustained energy throughout the day. The energy from VITAFORCE is more subtle and comfortable than the energy boost you get from caffeine or stimulants. This energy comes from improved nutrient balances in your body, rather than from unhealthy and potentially toxic stimulants.
9) Is VITAFORCE good for people who are worried about bone loss?
Yes. VITAFORCE is an ideal supplement for those who are concerned about bone loss. VITAFORCE has the maximum amount of calcium that the body can absorb at any one time (500mg). If you are taking more calcium at any one sitting, you are at best wasting your money, and at worst harming yourself, as explained further below.
Even more importantly, though, VITAFORCE has 250% of the RDA for Vitamin D. Recent studies show that Vitamin D is more important than calcium in building bone mineral density. In fact, it is important to balance the calcium and Vitamin D ratio appropriately, because too much calcium can interfere with the conversion of Vitamin D into its biologically active form. At the same time, Vitamin D helps the body to absorb calcium. Recent studies make clear, therefore, that a high dose of calcium is not the most effective way to prevent bone loss, and may even increase cancer risk because of the lower conversion rate of Vitamin D.
VITAFORCE also contains a full array of vitamins, minerals, trace minerals and other plant protective compounds which are synergistic in building stronger bones, hair and nails.
10) Are there any nutrients in VITAFORCE that are not from food? If so, why?
Yes, we are proud to say thet we have added 2 nutrients which scientific studies have shown are NOT bio-available from food free of animal sources and therefore they must be supplemented: (1) Vitamin B-12; (2) Vitamin D. Every other nutrient in VITAFORCE is from food. We are committed to providing you with complete and balanced nutrition. Any nutritional supplement that does not provide you with sufficient quantities of these two vitally important nutrients is deficient.
11) Why did we supplement Vitamin B-12 and Vitamin D?
One of the four criteria we mandated for VITAFORCE is "Nutrients must come from food, unless no pure and viable source exists." There is no pure or vegan food source of Vitamin B-12 or Vitamin D. Some people claim that nutritional yeast and spirulina are viable sources of B-12, but this is a controversial statement that is inconclusive and unproven, and we do not intend to take any risks with your health. Both of these vitamins are critical to your health, and a deficiency in either is linked to degenerative diseases and even death.
12) Is VITAFORCE suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
Yes, this product is 100% vegan. Please rest assured that no animals have been tested on or used in any way for purposes of this product. Indeed, VITAFORCE is an ideal product for vegans because it provides appropriate quantities of various nutrients often missing in the vegan diet, including Vitamin D, Vitamin B-12, calcium, zinc and iron.
13) Do I need to take VITAFORCE with food?
You can take VITAFORCE with or without food. You can take it mixed in water or juice, or, our personal favorite, put it in a fruit smoothie for breakfast.
14) I have read that taking high amounts of Vitamin A during pregnancy can cause birth defects. Since VITAFORCE is such a rich source of Vitamin A, does that mean it is not safe to take during pregnancy?
VITAFORCE is perfectly safe and is an ideal prenatal vitamin and mineral supplement. Studies have shown that ingesting 10,000 IU's of preformed Vitamin A (retinol or retinyl esters) can result in increased risk of birth defects. VITAFORCE contains no preformed Vitamin A.
VITAFORCE contains only mixed carotenoids from plants, which have never been shown to cause birth defects at any dose.
15) Does VITAFORCE replace a healthy diet?
Absolutely not. VITAFORCE ensures that you receive your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. It also provides an abundance of plant protective phytonutrients and antioxidants. But, VITAFORCE is a supplement to a healthy diet, not a replacement for it. Nothing can nor should replace a healthy diet.
Beware of any supplement that claims it is a replacement for a healthy diet. Often times, green powder supplements will make outrageous claims, like one serving is the equivalent of 5 to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables. This claim is extremely misleading. While a particular green powder may have as much Vitamin A as 5 to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables, it can never have the same ability to promote health and ward of diseases such as heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.
