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. Please make sure you are taking food supplements with a main meal and not on an empty stomach. If you are taking medications for health reasons, it is advised to speak with your health care professional before taking Advanced Nutrition Programme.

HOW LONG DO I TAKE A SUPPLEMENT BEFORE I KNOW IF IT IS WORKING 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 our in-house studies done in our Skin Research Centre). For some supplements it may be quicker, for example with our Skin Omegas+ individuals have noticed a result within 7 days.

WHAT IS THE RIGHT TIME OF DAY TO BE TAKING SUPPLEMENTS?
In general, 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 Ultimate which has convenient daily, tear-off pods which act as your daily supplement dose.
