Vitaplen Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What does Vitaplen® taste like?
Vitaplen® is 100% gluten-free, allergy friendly* and has a great tasting orange flavor. The owners of DTC health put it in their morning smoothies!
Q. What are the benefits of liquid vitamins over pills?
Advantages of liquid formulas:
- Absorption rate of up to 95%. You don't have to wait for pills to dissolve and pass through your system.
- Liquid formulas bypass the digestive process and are immeditately absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
- Liquid formulas will not upset your stomach.
- Liquid vitamins are easier to swallow, especially for children/seniors.
- Children with immature digestive systems can assimilate liquid vitamins quicker, easier and more effectively.
- Seniors with attenuated digestive enzymes can absorb liquid vitamins easier and more effectively.
Disadvantages of solid formulas:
- Absorption rate of about 10-20%.
- Pills contain fillers, binders, chelating agents, stabilizers (crospovidone) and film coatings making the possibility of choking more likely.
- Vitamin capsules have powdered ingredients placed into pork-based gelatin or vegetable capsules with additives such as talc, binding agents, blue vitriol (insecticide) and other fillers, which leads to digestive distress.
- Pill manufacturers use hazardous ingredients such as hydrogenated oils, polyvinyl alcohol (adhesive), dyes, alcohol, overdoseable iron, synthetic Vitamin E (dl-alpha tocopheryl) and hypromellose (used in eye drops).
- Solid form vitamin manufacturers double and triple the amount of vitamins that will ultimately pass through your system without absorption as a way to make you think you are getting a better product.
Q. Where is Vitaplen® manufactured and does DTC Health follow United States Pharmacopea (USP) testing standards?
Vitaplen® is manufactured in the USA at a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) facility which ensures that all testing is in accordance with USP standards. The facility is also inspected by the Department of Health and Senior Services and the Consumer Environmental Health for maintenance of sanitary conditions. It is a good idea to make sure that you only purchase nutraceuticals that are produced in such a facility. Each ingredient in Vitaplen® is selected based on quality and stability. Microbiological evaluations are also conducted to confirm the absence of things like yeast, mold, salmonella, E. Coli, BSE, Staphylococcus Aureus, Pseudomonas Aerunginosa, Mercury, etc. Every batch has strict quality controls to ensure that all of the ingredients listed on the label are in fact included in the exact dosages stated. These quality controls include quality specifications and raw material specification documentation to confirm that things such as the pH and assay are within acceptable limits.
