Can the capsule or tablet products be taken by small children?

Many Vitabiotics’ products are for specific requirements or life stages, such as pregnancy or menopause, and are therefore not recommended for children. Because of the size of some capsules and tablets, we do not recommend they be taken by children under the age of 12, unless specified otherwise under the directions for use. The WellKid range is of course available for children.

Is there a particular time of the day when it is best to take multivitamin supplements?

Scientific opinion varies, but it is often thought the evening is an ideal time, because this is when the body’s mineral levels fluctuate most. However, it is important to ensure the supplements are taken with your largest meal of the day to maximise nutrient absorption, whether this is your lunch or evening meal.

Is it normal for my urine to change colour after taking your products, ie. bright green/yellow?

All multivitamin products may sometimes cause brightly coloured urine but this is perfectly harmless, and often due to the actual colour of some of the nutrients e.g. vitamin B2. However, if discolouration occurs every time water is passed, and also when the product is stopped for a couple of days, it may be worth seeking medical advice to ensure there is no other underlying cause.

Can I take your capsule products with breakfast?

We recommend that all our multivitamin and mineral supplements be taken with your largest meal of the day, on a full stomach, to ensure maximum absorption. This can also help prevent cases of mild nausea, which can be experienced by some people if the supplements are taken on an empty stomach or with a light meal. Breakfast is often considered a ‘light meal’ e.g. a bowl of cereals, or just a couple of slices of toast, or a yoghurt etc., so is usually considered not substantial enough.

Is it necessary to take the capsules and tablets with a full glass of water?
