Due to the large number of questions we received from our nutrition coach, we have decided to make a small selection of the most interesting questions & Publish answers. In the following we answer questions about Omega-3, orthomolecular Medicine, protein powder.
Question: In other products the omega-3 fatty acids are always included as capsules, in your case they are mixed into the powder, why?
nutri+: Omega 3 fatty acids are better absorbed in an emulsion than in capsule form.
Therefore, we have avoided additional capsules in our orthomolecular products and used them directly Powder included.
So they are also more practical to take.
Question: I use nutri+ 50+ and am very happy with it. However, it does not dissolve 100%. Do you have any tips on how to improve solubility?
nutri+: Our orthomolecular preparations nutri+ 50+ and nutri+ Herz contain a variety of fat-soluble micronutrients such as vitamin D, lecithin, lycopene, lutein and other vital substances. Therefore, after stirring, a thin layer consisting of these substances settles on the water. The solubility can be further improved by using hot water.
Question: Can you use the nutri+ Shape & Mix the shake with water and drink?
nutri+: Yes, our Protein shake without aspartame can also be mixed with water and drunk, but in our experience it tastes better with milk.
This is also how you get additional protein. Our vegan protein powder nutri+ Shape & Shake Vegan, on the other hand, was developed on a water basis and is therefore optimally water-soluble.
Question: I would like to know more about orthomolecular nutritional medicine or vitamins & Co. experience. Do you have any book recommendations for me?
nutri+: Yes, we can recommend the following books about micronutrients and nutritional medicine:
Manual Vitamins: For prophylaxis, therapy and advice.< br />Nutritional medicine: According to the nutritional medicine curriculum of the Federal Medical Association
Question: I have often read that orthomolecular medicine is used for diseases and certain medications are used. Is that true and why is that?
nutri+: That is correct. Illnesses such as migraines, ADD/ADHD, depression, rheumatism, diabetes and CHD (cardiovascular) diseases can lead to nutrient deficiencies.
The same also applies to certain medications, such as the contraceptive pill, antihypertensives and laxatives. The use of these medications can lead to a deficiency of various fat- and water-soluble vitamins, such as Vitamin B12, folic acid, riboflavin, thiamine, etc.
A targeted supply of these micronutrients can optimize cell metabolism again and thus improve the patient's condition.
Question:I have often stumbled upon the term vitaminoids. What are vitaminoids?
nutri+: Vitaminoids are vitamin-like substances that are essential for the body - just like vitamins – are vital. The difference to vitamins is that the body can produce sufficient quantities of these itself. However, in certain situations (stress, sport, from a certain age) the concentration of these vitaminoids in the body decreases and deficiency symptoms can occur such as fatigue, susceptibility to infections and irritability.
Examples of vitaminoids are L-carnitine and co-enzyme Q10 (ubiquinone).
