Why aren’t natural sweeteners like Stevia or Honey used in Vital Greens?
The sweetener used in Vital Greens is Thaumatin. Thaumatin is a protein naturally extracted from the seed shells of the West African Katemfe fruit. In past formulations of Vital Greens we have used stevia, however feedback from customers has told us the taste was too artificial, and feedback has been very positive since the introduction of Thaumatin in our range.
I already use your Spatone iron supplement, would it be too much if I take Vital Greens as well?
Vital Greens has no added iron, making it suitable for the whole family to take. However taking Vital Greens will help to improve the overall absorption of iron in your diet, and other iron supplements you choose to take. Some of the ingredients contain iron naturally, however the level of the iron’s bioavailability is minimal.
I already take Ki Immune Support and Energy Formula, can I also take Vital Greens?
Yes, the added levels of Shitake Mushroom and Astragalus in Vital Greens will not take the total dose of these herbs over the daily range recommended.
I notice you use certified organic ingredients in Vital Greens. Why aren’t all of the ingredients organic?
We use certified organic ingredients in Vital Greens where possible. Apple powder, alfalfa powder, flaxseed powder, barley leaf powder and wheatgrass powder are all certified organic. With 76 different ingredients in Vital Greens it isn’t always possible to source certified organic ingredients. Some ingredients are not certifiable or not certified organic.
I have a 4 year old child, what dosage should I give him of Vital Greens?
For children aged between 3-6 years, 2.5gm a day is recommended. After the age of 6 years you can increase the dosage to 5gm a day. Some children dislike the taste of Vital Greens so we recommend mixing it with a non-acidic juice or milk. Blackcurrant juice is a popular choice.
Can Vital Greens be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding?
We recommend consulting with a health care professional whilst pregnant or lactating.
Is it ok to take Vital Greens when I am on medication?
Vital Greens is a food, however you should inform you healthcare professional of any significant lifestyle or dietary changes if you are taking prescription medications. Please consult your healthcare professional if on a blood thinning medication such as Warfarin.
Why do I have to keep Vital Greens in the fridge once I have opened it? Do I have to use it within a certain period?
Vital Greens contains probiotics which need to be refrigerated once opened to maintain their potency. We recommend using Vital Greens within 90 days of opening, to maintain the freshness and potency of the 76 ingredients.
Is Vital Greens gluten and wheat free?
Vital Greens is gluten and wheat free. It is also suitable for vegetarians, vegans, lactose free, corn free, dairy free and not tested on animals.
Vital Greens contains wheat grass, is it wheat free?
Yes Vital Greens is wheat free and gluten free. Wheat grass is suitable for people avoiding gluten and wheat because it is cut when it is very young, at this stage the grass does not contain any gluten. The gluten is present in the wheat kernel, after the wheat plant has grown for a long time.
