Q. I am a senior female, taking Active 40+. Do I still need extra calcium?
A. Vitality Pack Active 40+ is a complete, responsible "preventative maintenance" program that meets the special needs of people over 40. It supplies nutrients to support health, as well as digestive enzymes to enhance the body's utilization of the nutrients it receives. Active 40+ was scientifically formulated to provide a comprehensive combination of nutrients in safe, effective amounts and contains 500 mg of calcium in a highly bioavailable form. The U.S. RDA for postmenopausal women is 1,500 mg of calcium, a much larger amount than is contained in Active 40+. Consequently, if your regular diet is not high in calcium, you may want extra calcium supplementation from one of our calcium supplements. For example, one serving of Vitality Calcium Plus contains 1,000 mg of calcium, sourced from high purity minerals.
Q. Why aren't there chelated minerals in Active 40+?
A. GNLD researched the specific nutrient requirements for men and women over 40, and formulated a product that best meets their specific needs. GNLD's Active 40+ addresses the nutritional issues of the mature adult, and provides a stable supply of nutrients to support health and vitality.
The complexed minerals included in Active 40+ are formulated for rapid dissolution and absorption. In fact, they meet and often exceed USP standards for dissolution time. To ensure optimum dissolution and absorption of nutrients in Active 40+, we include additional digestive enzymes, which are not in our other Vitality Packs, to support and enhance the body's natural digestion and absorption processes.
In addition to the full spectrum of minerals in Active 40+, there are other critically important nutrients included to fulfill the specific nutritional requirements of men and women over 40. For example, it contains a full spectrum of antioxidants to support tissue health and to combat free radical damage. In addition, Active 40+ contains lecithin to support brain function. Active 40+ also has lipotropic factors to help keep lipids in the blood circulating, preventing them from being deposited on arterial walls.
Keep in mind that each Vitality Pack has a unique formulation; all three have a mixture of ingredients, which is specific to a particular lifestyle. However, what all of the Vitality Packs do have in common is a relatively equal cost and the finest, purest, raw materials available anywhere. GNLD's Daily Vitality Packs supplementation system is an excellent program that provides the nutrients needed to meet the extra demands imposed by today's diverse lifestyles.
Q. What supplements can I suggest for athletes to take?
A. When it comes to sports nutrition, nutrients essential for recovery are crucial for the hard-charging athletes. Antioxidants are an important part of muscle recovery. Also important is muscle rebuilding, which is assisted by protein. An excellent sports nutrition program would include:
Sports 30:This specially formulated Daily Vitality Pack supplies an abundance of balanced, high-potency nutrients that are in high demand during periods of physical activity. In addition to our exclusive Formula IV Plus, each packet contains: Liver + C, a traditional source of energy-related nutrients, Vitamin E for antioxidant protection, B-vitamins for energy production, and vitamin C and bioflavonoids to aid immunity and nutrient absorption.
Antioxidants: Immune system health is needed for everyone, especially athletes, as playing hard and exposure to the elements can really wreak havoc on the immune system. PhytoDefense, Vitamin E Plus, and one of our excellent vitamin C products (Powdered C, Super C, or All-C) can help boost immune power immensely, plus aid in muscle recovery.
Protein: Athletes work their muscles hard, therefore muscle rebuilding is an important factor to consider when choosing products for athletes. Super Ease is an excellent protein product, and well loved by many athletes. GR2 Control Meal Replacement Protein Drink would also be a good protein choice with athletes that are restricting calories.
Digestion: Athletes tend to eat more than the non-athletes, which could make digestion a problem. Beta-Gest and Enzyme Digestive Aid are two great digestive products, and not only aid digestion, but also assist nutrient utilization.
Finally, another product to consider adding to a sports nutrition program is Vitality Aloe Vera Plus. Athletes are under extreme stress, and a refreshing drink of Aloe Vera Plus in the evenings can help in the relaxation process after a grueling training day. After all, an athlete needs rest, too!
Q. Why is the Vitamin B tablet in the Stress 30 pack coated red, and what is it?
A. The red color coating on the Stress B+C tablet is from the natural carmine color. Natural color was added to Stress B+C to readily distinguish this tablet from other GNLD B vitamin tablets in the manufacturing, packaging, and quality control areas. You'll be pleased to know that GNLD does not use artificial colorings in our products. Our tablets obtain their rich colors from nature's own vibrant colors. This is just another example of the GNLD difference!
Q. Why are there so many pills in the Daily Vitality Packs? Are there specific nutrients that work better as separate
A. The need for several supplements within a Daily Vitality Pack is to be certain that the nutrient totals are what is needed for optimum day-to-day health, while keeping the supplements at a size that is convenient to swallow. Also, the ingredients within each individual supplement are combined for the best possible digestion, absorption, and utilization of important nutrients. Another point to remember is that GNLD relies on natural, whole-food ingredients as much as possible, and this influences the tablet and capsule size as well.
Q. Why does Stress 30 have more zinc than the other Vitality Packs? Is it possible to have too much zinc?
A. Zinc is one of the nutrients that is in a high demand by the body during times of stress, and zinc affects the absorption of other minerals, particularly copper. However, in a supplement such as Stress 30, it is partnered with many vitamins and minerals to ensure that there is no problem with nutrient absorption. Stress 30 is a complete nutritional program formulated to meet the needs of a stressful lifestyle by providing an abundance of balanced, high-potency nutrients that are in high demand during periods of stress. That is why Stress 30 contains a larger amount (60 mg) of zinc than Sports 30 (30 mg) or Active 40+ (15 mg).
In general, a daily intake up to 75 mg of zinc is considered safe for the majority of the population. Prolonged intakes of 100 mg or more per day have been associated with inhibited absorption of copper and can produce copper deficiency anemia.
Q. We are currently on the GR2 Control program. Do we continue to take the regular GNLD supplements?
A. Absolutely! We recommend that anyone on GR2 Control continue with his/her normal GNLD supplementation program. The GR2 Control weight loss program, although extremely healthy, is still a normal diet, therefore additional supplementation is recommended.
Q. If I am taking one of the Daily Vitality Packs, do I need to take any other supplements?
A. For some, Vitality Packs will be comprehensive enough for their needs, others may have specific health concerns that they want to address. Therefore, additional products should be considered. For example, if one has a concern for heart health, Vitamin E Plus, Lipotropic Adjunct, and Omega III Salmon Oil/Concentrate are excellent options to be considered.
