You asked, our scientists answered: Nutrilite Q&A

We asked you on Instagram to send us your most pressing, burning Nutrilite questions, which we then sent to our team of Nutrilite scientists to answer. Here’s a closer look at what our scientists came back with after reading the most popular questions:

Will Nutrilite use folate instead of folic acid in their products anytime soon? @genevieve.nicole

All Nutrilite products are made with ingredients carefully chosen by our experts after pouring over thousands of pages of research and testing. We also frequently re-examine existing research to ensure we are continuing to use the very best ingredients to deliver optimal benefits. Currently, scientific research concludes that folic acid is the best source of Vitamin B9 for our products.

Is there any restriction to mix Nutrilite All Plant Protein with the XS Whey Protein? @youngxiaopei

Since both products contain highly digestible, high-quality proteins, you can add one serving of Nutrilite All Plant Protein (APP) with one serving of XS Whey Protein. Note that the XS Whey Protein contains milk, whereas the APP does not, in case you can’t have dairy.

Do you have a supplement that helps stop hair loss? @geetaselvaraj

No. Always remember that our supplements are not designed to diagnose or treat medical conditions, and you should always talk to your doctor before trying a supplement. One of our products in the U.S., the Nutrilite Hair, Skin and Nails supplement, offers nutrients that can promote strong, flexible nails, support healthy hair, and smooth, elastic skin. Check with Amway in your country to see if this product is available near you!*

Can you take too many supplements? If so, how do you decide what to take or not? @j_living737

It depends on the supplements in question. We always recommend checking with your doctor before using a supplement or combining multiple supplements to make sure they are the best choice for you.

If you are looking to add supplements to your daily regimen and are wondering where to start, ask your doctor about a multivitamin or a specific topic (like energy or bone health) you are interested in.

Why Nutrilite Daily? @caanishvohra

Nutrilite Daily is a great option if you’re looking for a multivitamin to help fill your dietary gaps. It’s packed with essential vitamins and minerals, plus plant concentrates that deliver a wide variety of phytonutrients, plant-based nutrients that deliver a variety of health benefits. Check with your Amway in your country to learn more.

How will the vitamins help me? @mbeatriz.m

According to the Nutrilite Phytonutrient Report, 75% of adults don’t eat enough fruits and vegetable each day (per WHO recommendations). And, people who do eat enough servings still struggle to eat a wide variety. Since fruits and vegetables are important sources for vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, this can be a big problem for your diet. This is where our supplements come in—packed with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients — our supplements can help fill in some of those dietary nutrient gaps. They aren’t meant to be a replacement for food – but a supplement (hence their name!) for your diet.

What are some supplements that may prove effective for relieving migraines? @meetballe220

Since we are a supplement company and not a pharmaceutical company, our supplements are not intended to treat or diagnose medical conditions, and you should talk with your doctor before taking supplements.

Wife and I are vegan. Any suggestions on products we could use? @michael.saveth

Rules for labeling products as vegan vary around the world. And, our formulas can vary depending on which country you live in because of government regulations and other factors. We recommend checking with your local Amway market and they can help identify Nutrilite products that meet your needs.

Are Nutrilite products 100% organic? I read there were synthetic inputs. @themelissalee

While our products may include ingredients grown on our Certified Organic Farms, Nutrilite products are not organic.

From the very beginning Nutrilite has always been about using the Best of Nature and the Best of Science to make supplements that are the best for you. While Nutrilite supplements have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives added, they do include synthetic ingredients.

We use botanicals whenever possible, but sometimes a synthetic version is actually a better choice because the natural form would require tablets that are too big to swallow. Whether synthetic or natural, every ingredient we use is subject to the same strict Nutrilite standards and care to ensure our products are really the very best. Nutrilite will use or find natural alternatives to synthetic sources of nutrients whenever feasible.

Can we take the vitamins if they expired? @yemi

We would not recommend taking expired vitamins. In order to receive the full nutritional benefit of our Nutrilite products, we recommend consuming products within the recommended shelf life listed on the product. Nutrient levels listed on the label are not guaranteed beyond the expiration date on the bottle.

Do Nutrilite products have gluten or come in contact with any gluten products? @gatita287

Our products vary by market, so we recommend reaching out to your local Amway market to find out what gluten-free options we have.

What’s special about Nutrilite products versus other brands? @changuanzhang

Everything! In all seriousness, our brand takes supplements to the next level. Whether it’s the amount of research backing every product, the searching that we do across the globe to find the best ingredients, our traceability and NutriCert® certification programs, or how we go above and beyond required safety standards–everything we do is centered on one thing: giving you high-quality supplements you can trust each and every time you open a bottle.

What can I take if I’m always feeling tired? @pearls96_lulah

You should always talk to your doctor if you are concerned about your energy levels or if you would like to start taking a supplement. A vitamin B supplement might be a good one to discuss with your physician or health professional.

Can we use sleep health on a daily basis? Will we become dependent on it? @mark_wma

Nutrilite Sleep Health can be used on a daily basis, but you should always check with your doctor before starting to take supplements. You won’t get the benefits of a supplement if you don’t take it on a regular basis, but you can stop taking any of our supplements at any time.
