Why has Wellwoman Hairfollic been developed?
Wellwoman Hairfollic is a formulation of bio-active nutrients based on the latest scientific research. It has been scientifically formulated to provide a comprehensive spectrum of nutrients including biotin, selenium and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of normal hair and copper which contributes to normal hair pigmentation.
Who can use Wellwoman Hairfollic?
Wellwoman Hairfollic may be used by women who are concerned about the appearance and general condition of their hair or scalp, or by those showing age-related changes wishing to help support the hair's nutritional needs.
How and when should Wellwoman Hairfollic be used?
Two or three tablets per day are ideally recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Taking Wellwoman Hairfollic with tea or coffee may cause the tablets to disintegrate too early. Do not exceed the recommended intake. Taking the tablets with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients and can reduce nausea, which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Wellwoman Hairfollic tablets should not be chewed. Wellwoman Hairfollic has not been designed to be taken during pregnancy.
Can Wellwoman Hairfollic be used simultaneously with medications?
Generally, Wellwoman Hairfollic can be taken alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals, and it is free of any drugs or hormones. As with other food supplements, seek professional advice before using if you suffer from food allergies, and consult your doctor or pharmacist for advice on taking Wellwoman Hairfollic with specific medication.
Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Wellwoman Hairfollic?
Wellwoman Hairfollic has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately. Diabetics should consult their doctor before using this product.
Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively and recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider to swallow the chewed food and so the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the tablets may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies.

Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.
The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.
Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels above the NRV have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.
All Vitabiotics products have been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose' levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
