A: Not only is it safe to take nutreince during pregnancy and nursing, but during these vital times your micronutrient needs are increased.

A: Yes, nutreince is safe for those on blood thinners. However, you should consult with your physician and tell them that you will be taking nutreince daily, and that nutreince contains vitamin K. Your physician may wish to adjust the dosage of your blood thinners. It is also important to let your physician know if you stop taking nutreince.
- Q: Should nutreince be taken with food?
A: While nutreince can be taken any time, we recommend that it is taken at least 20 - 30 minutes before or after a meal to reduce the chances of the micronutrients in nutreince competing for absorption with the micronutrients in your food. Additionally nutreince should be mixed with water or sparkling water for this same reason rather than juice or milk.

A: The recommended dose is 2 packets per day (1 AM packet & 1 PM packet) as they each hold a proprietary blend of the listed ingredients.

A: No, there is no caffeine in nutreince.

A: Because nutreince is a powder there is no need for it to disintegrate like pills or capsules. This makes nutreince highly absorbable.
- Q: Is nutreince suitable for menopausal woman?
A: Yes. nutreince is great for menopausal women to take. The 600 mg of calcium, 400 mg of magnesium, 80 mg of vitamin K, and the 2000 IU of vitamin D are fantastic for keeping bones healthy and strong.
- Q: Why is it important that nutreince is formulated to not contain copper and iron?
A: Taking a multivitamin with copper is generally not recommended because too much copper in the body can hinder your body's ability to destroy the proteins that form the plaques found in the brain of Alzheimer's patients. Many Alzheimer's patients have been found to have elevated levels of copper, and in studies, it was determined that many of those effected took multivitamins with copper. Additionally, pregnant woman should avoid copper in multivitamins because copper levels can nearly double during pregnancy making toxicity a concern. Cramps, abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, and liver damage are all common when taking supplements that include copper.
Iron is a vital mineral your body needs to function normally. However, the National Institutes of Health's Office of Dietary Supplements, has indicated that too much iron can cause serious health complications. Because of this, you may want to take an iron-free multivitamin to avoid iron overload, a medical condition that causes excess iron to be stored in vital organs such as the liver and heart. Too much iron may be toxic---and even fatal. In general, iron supplementation is not recommended for adult males and postmenopausal women. If you are a pre-menopausal woman, an athlete that works out for more than 6 hours a week, or a strict vegan/vegetarian you may want to consider iron supplementation. However, you should know that iron competes with ten (10) other micronutrients - making multivitamins formulated with iron highly susceptible to poor absorption rates. If you choose to use an iron supplement, you should take it at a separate time from your daily multivitamin.
