Will these supplements make me lose weight?
No. There are no magic pills that would make you lose weight, if you don’t do the work yourself. If you ever see a supplement that claims to do that, then it is a fraud.
Our low-carb diet supplements can help you to deal with some common low-carb diet problems, such as fatigue and sugar cravings, as well as prevent any nutritional deficiencies. This, in turn, can make it easier for you to stick to your diet.
But supplements can’t do the work for you. You need to follow your diet guidelines, and ideally also do some exercise, in order to lose weight.
Nutri-Align Multivit contains very high dosages of vitamins. Is this safe?
All dosages of vitamins and minerals included in the formula are well within the safe upper limits as defined by the European Food Safety Authority.
See the latest EFSA report >>
Nutri-Align Multivit has been approved by the UK Trading Standards as compliant with all relevant regulations on food supplements, and suitable for sale in the UK and EU.
It is a legal requirement to show vitamins dosages compared to Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) guidelines. It is worth remembering that NRV are developed with a standard Western diet in mind. Many low-carb plans include less of fruit and grains that the standard diet (at least in the initial stages). So it makes sense to increase the levels of supplementation.
Multivit also complies with relevant legislation issued by US FDA. Nutri-Align is registered with FDA as a foreign facility supplements manufacturer.
Why do I have to take 3 tablets a day – wouldn’t it be easier to have just one tablet a day?
Multivit is a super-strong formula, with the dosage of vitamins and nutrients much higher than an average multivitamin (although well within the established safe upper limits).
Taking it three times a day spreads out this dosage, helping your body to absorb it better. One jumbo pill a day might be easier to manage, but it would be harder for your body to process it efficiently.
Does Nutri-Align Multivit contain caffeine?
No, it does not. The green tea extract contained in Multivit is Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). There is no caffeine and it will not interfere with your sleep in any way.
EGCG is a powerful antioxidant, with some studies also showing it being helpful to weight loss. Green tea only contains caffeine when you take it in its natural form i.e. as actual tea. More about the benefits of green tea: http://low-carb-support.com/green-tea-low-carb-diet/
Why is Nutri-Align Multivit iron-free?
Most low-carb dieters consume a lot of meat, which is a natural source of iron. So you are unlikely to have an iron deficiency.
Too much iron can cause health issues, affecting digestion and heart health. It is therefore advised that anyone who eats a lot of meat should not take extra iron supplements.
Nutri-Align Multivit is quite expensive compared to other multivitamins, why is that?
It is true that Multivit is more expensive than many generic multivitamin brands.
However, if you compare the included dosages to a generic product, you will see that Multivit is actually good value for money.
Multivit also includes additional nutrients recommended for low-carb dieters that are not found in generic formulas – for example, extra-strong chromium and green tea extract.
How is this product different to other multivitamin formulas?
Multivit formula was developed especially for low-carb dieters. It is the only such product currently available in the UK.
The formula contains extra-strong vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino-acids to support your low-carb diet. It is different to standard multivitamins, that are created for people who follow standard Western diets.
Please also note that supplements are not a substitute for a varied and balanced diet, and you should always follow the guidelines of your chosen low-carb diet plan to ensure you get the full spectrum of nutrients.
