Advance Nutrition Programme Supplements FAQs

WHO SHOULD TAKE SUPPLEMENTS?

Anyone who is interested in their health and supporting skin health should consider taking supplements to ensure that their body is getting all the nutrients they need. Additionally, for individuals with specific skin concerns, our team have developed targeted solutions for problem skin, dry skin, ageing skin and more. Our skin produces 200 million skin cells per hour so it is important that you are making this from a diet rich in nutrients.

CAN I TAKE TOO MANY SUPPLEMENTS?

First of all, it is important to note that you should not be using supplements to replace a varied and balanced diet. Secondly, it is possible to consume too many supplements, especially if you are combining different brands. The risk here is that you may be getting too much of certain vitamins and minerals. The Advanced Nutrition Programme™ range has been specifically formulated to work in synergy so you can take a few products together and it is perfectly safe. If you are taking other food supplements and have specific queries, please feel free to contact our in house customer services and nutrition team who will endeavour to advise you.

IS IT OK TO TAKE DIFFERENT SUPPLEMENTS AT THE SAME TIME?

Yes absolutely, combining supplements will not interfere with the way they work, in some cases it can even be beneficial as vitamins and minerals often rely on each other to work properly. This is also why it can be good to take a multivitamin and beneficial bacteria as a foundation and then include other supplements. Please make sure you are taking food supplements with a main meal and not on an empty stomach.

WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME OF DAY TO TAKE A FOOD SUPPLEMENT?

It is best to take most supplements with food as this is the way nature intended us to digest and absorb nutrients. We recommend that you take supplements with a main meal as this provides for better absorption. This can be lunch or dinner. The important part is that you take your supplements on a daily basis.

Sometimes it can be hard to get into a routine with this so here are some tips that may help get you in a routine:
• Set a daily reminder on your phone.
• Keep your supplements in a draw at work or on your desk so they are easily accessible.
• Use one of our Advanced Nutrition Programme™ travel tins to make sure you always have your daily supply with you.
• Consider our Skin Boxes such as Skin Ultimate which has convenient daily, tear-off pods which act as your daily supplement dose.

WHAT SUPPLEMENTS WILL BE RIGHT FOR ME?

Why not book in for a consultation to so that we can talk through your needs so that you are confident that you are taking the right supplements for YOU.

HOW LONG DO I TAKE A SUPPLEMENT BEFORE DECIDING IF IT WORKS OR NOT?

This is a complex question and can involve many factors that affect the outcome. To simplify, every person is unique and individual so results will vary from person to person. As a general rule we find that people start to notice a difference around 12 weeks (based on their in-house studies done in our Skin Research Centre). For some supplements it may be quicker, for example with our Skin Omegas+ and Skin Youth Biome™ individuals have noticed a result within 7 days. In contrast our Skin Accumax™ optimal results are achieved after a minimum period of 14 weeks. Skin cells in the epidermis turnover every 28 days so you may not notice a difference in your skin immediately, but you may notice improvements in wellbeing and energy first.

IS IT OK TO TAKE SUPPLEMENTS ONE DAY BUT NOT THE NEXT?

For best results consistency is key so we recommend that you take your food supplements on a daily basis. If you forget to take your supplements for one day that is fine, just continue to take them again the next day. There is no need to double up.

IS IT SAFE FOR CHILDREN TO TAKE SUPPLEMENTS?

It is safe for children over the age of 16 to take specifically formulated supplements for children the whole range of supplements have been designed for 16 years and over.

ARE YOUR SUPPLEMENTS SUITABLE FOR VEGANS?

The ingredients listing for each product states whether it's suitable for vegans.

ARE YOUR SUPPLEMENTS SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS?

The ingredients listing for each product states whether it's suitable for vegetarians.

DO THEY TEST ON ANIMALS?

No they do not test on animals.

I HAVE TROUBLE SWALLOWING TABLETS AND CAPSULES, WHAT DO I DO?

As a general rule of thumb, supplements are available in capsule, soft gel or tablet format For capsules, We recommend that you can break these apart and mix the powder in with some food like yoghurt or into a glass of juice, and if you can stand the taste you can even mix it in some water. Just remember to eat/drink the mixture straight away as the capsule is designed to protect the ingredients from light and air and once this is removed, they will start to degrade. Regarding tablets, you can break in half or even crush into a powder and mix into food.

I FEEL NAUSEOUS AFTER TAKING SUPPLEMENTS, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

This can be perfectly normal if you are taking supplements on an empty stomach or on a meal that doesn’t contain enough food. Make sure are taking supplements with a main meal that contains some oil or fat for better absorption.

WHY SHOULD YOU TAKE SUPPLEMENTS?

In an ideal world, we should get all our nutrients from food but sadly, this can be challenging. Due to changes in farming and changes in supply chain processes such as storage and processing of food, the nutritional content of food has diminished. An analysis by the UK Department of Agriculture reveals that the amount of magnesium in vegetables has dropped by 24% in just the past 70 years. Calcium has dropped by 27%. The iron in meat has fallen by 54%. Selenium (a key antioxidant) in fresh food is down by 50%.

WHAT DOES NRV ON THE PRODUCT LABEL MEAN?

There are many abbreviations in the world of nutrition and food supplements so it can be confusing to understand labelling the abbreviation RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) has been commonly used on food supplement labels and this term has been replaced with NRV which is an abbreviation of ‘Nutrient Reference Value’. NRV’s are set for 13 vitamins and 14 minerals for the purposes of food labelling and are EU guidance levels on the daily amount of vitamin or mineral that the average healthy person needs to prevent deficiency. Food supplement labels list the ingredients included in the product and give the proportion of the NRV value (% NRV) that is contained within the supplement e.g. vitamin C, 80mg, 100% NRV.

DO I NEED TO WORRY IF THE PERCENTAGE OF NRV IS OVER A 100%?

No, the NRV is just an average guidance level. When formulating our products we adhere to a stringent set of rules for safe amounts of nutrients that is provided by EFSA (European Food Safety Authority).The product labels are also reviewed by HFMA (Health Food Manufacturers Association) to make sure they fall within the EU legislation and their experienced team ensure alignment with legislation in other countries worldwide.

CAN SUPPLEMENTS INTERACT WITH PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS?

Yes, they can. If you are on any prescribed medications please check with your Doctor or Health Care Professional.

ARE THERE ANY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FOOD SUPPLEMENTS AND MEDICATIONS?

Yes, Advanced Nutrition Programme™ food supplements are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Medications are specifically designed to treat diseases and are prescribed by doctors and pharmacists.

CAN I TRUST THE HEALTH CLAIMS MADE ON THE PRODUCT LABEL?

Yes you can. All of their claims that they make on their products are authorised EFSA claims. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is responsible for evaluating the scientific evidence supporting health claims.

HOW DO I KNOW THAT THE INGREDIENTS LISTED ON THE LABEL ARE ACTUALLY IN THE PRODUCT?

Quality is key pillar of Advanced Nutrition Programme™. As a result, they triple test each and every batch produced to make sure that you are getting exactly what it says on the label.

HOW DO I TELL THAT I’M GETTING A GOOD QUALITY FOOD SUPPLEMENT?

As with most things in life, quality comes with a cost. The cheapest supplements are usually less expensive for a reason due to ingredient selection, potency and testing. In general, heaper forms of nutrients may not be easily absorbed, or lower amounts are used. Many unnecessary bulking agents and excipients may be added.

ARE ALL FOOD SUPPLEMENTS TESTED TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE EFFECTIVE?

No, this is not an industry requirement so brands that do test go above and beyond. The team at Advanced Nutrition Programme™ engage in strict testing procedures which exceed industry requirements. The team also complete case studies to showcase results on various skin parameters.

IS THERE ANY RESEARCH THAT DEMONSTRATES THAT TAKING ORAL SUPPLEMENTS FOR SKINCARE HAS BENEFITS OVER TRADITIONAL TOPICAL APPLICATION SUCH AS MOISTURIZERS?

Research from the British Journal of Nutrition in 2006 concludes that taking oral supplements has many benefits over topical application. It supports the importance of supplements that feed skin over the entire body, in an easily absorbable form and which can nourish even the deeper layers of the skin.

HOW IS COMBINING SUPPLEMENTS WITH TOPICAL SKINCARE TREATMENTS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN USING TOPICAL TREATMENTS ALONE?

A recent report from the British Journal of Nutrition reported that taking supplements has advantages over creams for skin care: the nutrients are more absorbable; the nutrients reach skin cells all over the body (not just where you put the cream) and nourish even the deepest layers of skin where creams can’t reach. We encourage a 360 degree approach to skincare by combining supplements and healthy diet with high quality treatments, topical skincare and make-up. Remember, the skin is the last organ to actually receive vitamins and minerals, as the body prioritises other organs like the brain, heart, muscles, etc. So, if the diet is low in nutrients, the skin will suffer first.

HOW ARE THE NUTRIENTS GUARANTEED TO REACH THE SKIN AND NOT GO TO ORGANS FIRST?

Your body will always prioritise nutrients to go to the organs that keep you alive such as your heart and brain, especially if you are deficient in certain ones. That said, there have been research studies done on how long it takes for certain vitamins to reach the skin and for some of them it's been shown to be as little as 12 hours to appear in the epidermis, for others it can be longer than 21 days. When it comes to developing the Advanced Nutrition Programme™ products, their team select nutrients with an affinity for skin such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides, vitamin A and D, omega 3 and 6, plant extracts and many others.

HOW DO I KNOW I AM ABSORBING SUPPLEMENTS?

ANP capsules are guaranteed to dissolve in the stomach within 30 minutes although we know that they often dissolve within 2 to 11 minutes. This means that the contents of the nutrients in the capsules are released into the stomach within minutes of swallowing.Regarding absorption of nutrients, this depends on many things. In fact research suggests that we may absorb between 10% and 90% of the vitamins and minerals we consume through food and supplements depending on age, stress, foods eaten, gut health to name a few.The best way to get the most from you supplements to take them with a main meal and you should minimise or avoid caffeine, alcohol and tobacco.

ARE HIGH DOSES OF VITAMIN A SAFE?

The amount in the Skin Vit A supplement is regarded as safe. Two slices of calves liver contains 120,000ius, to put this in perspective a single ANP capsule contains 5000ius which falls within industry recommended upper safety limits while still being at a level suitable to support skin health.

Pregnant women, or women planning to become pregnant, should NOT take vitamin A except on the advice of their doctor or ante-natal clinic.

WHAT ARE ANTIOXIDANTS AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TAKING SUPPLEMENTS CONTAINING THEM?

Antioxidants are special nutrients that protect us from harmful toxins called oxidants or free radicals, which damage cells, accelerate ageing and cause disease.

These by-products of oxygen are like the ‘sparks’ that emanate from anything that’s burnt, including cigarettes, petrol and fried or barbecued food. Even the process we use to ‘burn’ food for energy inside our body cells end up making a bucketful of oxidants every year.

Antioxidants are like fireproof gloves, catching the sparks and protecting us. Each antioxidant becomes ‘hot’ and passes the oxidant to another until there is no more danger – so they work cooperatively.
