Vital Nutrients FAQ
Where are your products manufactured?
Vital Nutrients products are manufactured in Connecticut, in a highly-controlled, temperature-regulated manufacturing facility that has been inspected by the FDA.
Are your supplements hypo-allergenic?
Yes, unless otherwise stated on the label.
Do your supplements contain gluten?
No, Vital Nutrients supplements are gluten free.
Are your bottles BPA free?
Yes. Vital Nutrients bottles are HDPE. In addition to confirmation from their bottle supplier, they have had their bottles tested by a third party lab to verify that they are indeed BPA-free.
Why do you use capsules instead of tablets?
Capsules are more easily digested, making the nutrients more readily available in the body. Tablets typically consist of only 25-50% active ingredients. The remainder of the tablet is composed of fillers, binders, lubricants, disintegrants, surfactants, and a coating often made of pthlates and shellac. Capsules allow for shorter and cleaner ingredient lists.
Can you make a calcium supplement that is in a smaller capsule?
The elemental calcium content of calcium citrate/malate is only about 20%, so a large capsule is necessary to provide an optimal dose of calcium.
Are your products GMO free?
Vital Nutrients take two steps to ensure GMO-free status for any susceptible ingredients. First, they require a GMO free statement from the ingredient supplier. Second, they have every batch of every susceptible ingredient tested for GMO markers at a 3rd party lab that specializes in genetic testing.
