QIs it good for kids? Also is your B12 good for kids? (In this case 11 years old) Thanks :)
Olena B
A Hi, we don't recommend Active Energy for children mainly because the capsules are quite large. Formula-wise, it is safe and beneficial to teens and tweens, but please be very cautious and consider the capsule size.
QHi, Can I take Vegvit with Active Energy Complex? Thanks, Jenn
Jennifer G
A Hi, we've added a "Can be taken with" graphic to each product page. We don't recommend taking Active Energy at the same time as the Multi Vit as you will double-up on some nutrients where it isn't ideal. Therefore we would recommend using them sequentially (e.g. Active Energy on Monday, Multi Vit on Tuesday, repeat).
QI was looking into buying this product but the ingredients state vitamin C and vitamin B12 I thought that vitamin C stops the absorption of B12 and the two should never be taken together?
Anne-Marie B
A Hi, the combination of Vitamin C and Vitamin B12 used in Active Energy is absolutely fine. There can be issued with very high levels of both taken together, but the combination we've chosen works well.
QDoes your Active Energy Complex contain caffeine?
Scott P
A Hi, no it doesn't.
QCan you take this if you're already taking the vegetology multivitamin?
Sunethra B
A Hi, we've added a "Can be taken with" graphic to each product page. We don't recommend taking Active Energy at the same time as the Multi Vit as you will double-up on some nutrients where it isn't ideal. Therefore we would recommend using them sequentially (e.g. Active Energy on Monday, Multi Vit on Tuesday, repeat).
QHow long does delivery take and were are they getting delivered from as I ordered mine yesterday just want to know how long it will take to get delivered
Carol Y
A Hi, we are based in UK. Typical delivery times can be accessed from the 'Delivery and Returns' link at the foot of the website.
QI have a question about the vitamin C in the Energy complex - where does it come from?
Sabine G
A Hi, we synthesise Vitamin C. We've found it to be the most efficient option.
QHello, is it folate or folic acid? Thanks
Ursula W
A Hi, we use Folate (5-MHTF).
QIs this suitable for someone with high blood pressure?
Seema B
A Hi, there is no reason it cannot be used by someone with high blood pressure, however please consult your Doctor before taking any supplements as they can consider it based on your individual medication and medical history.
QHi, how long might it take to feel the energy boost? Also is the effect cumulative/long-lasting over days/weeks/months or only it effects you for the day or so that you take it? Also if I would alternate this with VegVit would I potentially notice a difference in how I feel on days where I take this compared with days I take VegVit? Thank you! (by the way your products seem fantastic and great prices - unfortunately I went to holland and barrett yesterday and bought multivitamin, d3, omega 3 and b12 and now I stumbled upon this website today... its like someone's played a sick joke on me lol)
Conor O
A Hi, people typically report improvements within a few days of taking Active Energy Complex. The effects differ from person to person but there is usually a good lasting improvement. Alternating with VegVit is a very good option too. We’re confident you will quickly notice the difference in energy and body clock.
QWhat kind of coenzyme Q10 is used? Is it the racemic mixture? If yes, about how much of each kind of co-Q10 is used? Thank you.
Tina V
A Hi, we use Coenzyme Q10 in the form of Ubiquinone
QHiya! What is the best time of day to take Active Energy Complex? Is it ok to take at night? Thanks :)
Yvette L
A Hi, it is fine to take at night but our recommendation is to take with breakfast or lunch for the best effects.
Q I am readily your customer. nevertheless can I know if your products been tested with any negative effects on the liver/kidney related pls?
Rizvithahir R
A Hi, all of the ingredients used in our products have been tested to ensure no such possible negative effects. We work to European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) regulations for our formulas and the levels of nutrients that we use.
QIs this safe to take during pregnancy?
Mary L
A Hi, yes it is. Please just check the label against any other supplements you are taking and avoid doubling up on any nutrients.
QI've been reading about vitamine B12 supplementation for my mother. We are both vegans but apparently she needs a lot more vit B12. I've read a recommendation of 50μg per day for the average adult and 1000μg for seniors. I've also read that you can overdose on vit B12. I was looking at your active energy supplement and it says you can combine it with the extra B12 supplement but that would mean you take 2000μg per day, I was wondering why you say you can take it together as this seems like a lot of B12?
Fenna b
A Hi, it isn't the case that you can overdose on Vitamin B12. The body grabs what it needs and the rest passes safely through.
Qare all of your products tested for heavy metals and toxins? where is the algae sourced from (Opti-3) and is it organic?
Chris s
A Hi, yes the products (and all ingredients) are fully tested for heavy metals and other items before being released for sale. The algae used for Opti3 are grown in tanks at a Pharma-quality facility. That allows full control of purity and means we can leave ocean ecosystems alone. It isn't considered organic in the eyes of Certifiers (as it isn't done in soil or the sea) but in relevant terms, goes way beyond organic in terms of purity and zero negative environmental impact.
Teresita D
A Hi, If you are using our Active Energy, Opti3, VegVit and JointVie, please alternate so you are using Opti3 everyday but combining it with e.g. VegVit on Monday, JointVie on Tuesday, Active Energy on Wednesday, repeat. We don't recommend doubling up on multivitamins as you will inadvertently double-up on some nutrients where it is not beneficial to do so. If you continue with this regime, please don't take additional B12, Glucosamine, Vitamin C or Zinc, because these nutrients will be covered already. If you wanted to, you can combine JointVie and Active Energy on the same day (so your regime could be Opti3 + VegVit on Monday, Opti3 + JointVie and Active Energy on Tuesday, repeat). Please just consider the elevated level of Vitamin C.
QWould this product interfere with any prescribed medicine such as statins?
Amanda S
A It would be wrong of us to comment on medication, so please consult your Doctor or look at the product information that is supplied with your medication to see if any recommendation are made regarding combinations/nutrients to avoid.
QIs there a chance of there being any iodine in the Active Energy Complex?
Nakita H
A Hi, there are no compounds within Active Energy Complex that contain measurable levels of iodine.
QHi. Is it possible to pierce the capsule and consume oil directly if too difficult to swallow?
Brenda S
A Hi, Active Energy is a hard capsule (with powder inside) rather than a soft capsule containing oil, so piercing isn't really an option. It's always worth taking tablets and capsules with food, because the throat automatically opens wider to swallow chewed food. Also, taking tablets and capsules with yoghurts or smoothies helps, as they slide down the throat more easily.
QDo I need to take a B12 supplement or just this B Complex enough? Is there any risk of taking too much B vitamins?
Charles P
A If you are using Active Energy Complex, you don't need an additional B12 supplement. As B Vitamins are water-soluble, there isn't a risk of taking too much. Your body grabs what it needs and any excess is excreted.
QOrdering Opti3Omega. Omega 3. I am ordering 3 bottles ... what is regular price ? There is a special ?
Gary p
A We have great bundles prices on all supplements. You can find options on the product pages or bundle pages.
QSince the list of ingredients overlaps with other product i take daily from you ( vegvit) is it ok if I take both? Because I just purchased this product and I am very excited to increase a bit more my energy level
Nour A
A We recommend only one of the multivitamin formulas (so one of VegVit, Joint-Vie, Active Energy Complex or PregnaVie). Don’t double up on any of these.
QIs it okay to take this WITH VegVit, or is it meant to be taken INSTEAD of? Thanks.
Gen L
A Active Energy is fine to take alongside, Opti3, B12 or Vitashine, but not recommended with VegVit to avoid getting too much of certain nutrients.
QWhat is the difference between Active Energy Complex and VegVit? I take only one of both daily, yeah? AEC is a bit more expensive - so does it include already VegVit + some boosting extras?
Milan G
A Please only use one of VegVit or Active Energy Complex. This is just to avoid doubling-up on some of the nutrients. VegVit is designed to be an 'all-rounder' multivitamin and mineral supplement, with a full spectrum of 26 nutrients. It does contain B Vitamins, which contribute to energy. Active Energy Complex is specifically designed to target tiredness and fatigue, combining B Vitamins with herbs used in traditional Chinese medicines and other selected nutrients. The aim is to help reset the body clock and try to energise at the right time of the day but relax at the right time of the night.
QCan the active energy complex cause your urine to be a bit greeny in colour?
Lorraine C
A This is quite common when taking supplements with high amounts of B Vitamins. It is absolutely normal, fine and safe. The body takes the B Vitamins that it needs and anything extra is just removed. It shows you are getting enough of the B Vitamins from Active Energy with some to spare!
