Why has Wellman 70+ been developed?
Vitabiotics Wellman 70+ provides a comprehensive range of 30 vitamins, trace elements and specialist advanced nutrients specifically formulated to help safeguard the nutritional needs of men aged 70 and above. The advanced formula includes nutrients to help support general wellbeing as well as key areas of health including heart, eye and immune health. Wellman 70+ contains thiamin (vit.B1), copper and iron which contribute to normal energy release. Wellman 70+ offers a first of its kind support for men of this age group, and forms part of the Vitabiotics Wellman range, the UK's number 1 men's supplement brand.
When is Wellman 70+ recommended?
Wellman 70+ is a daily nutritional safeguard for men in their 70s and beyond. There is no maximum length of time over which Wellman 70+ may be used. There is no need to take an additional multivitamin.
Can Wellman 70+ be used with medicines simultaneously?
Generally, Wellman 70+ may be used along-side medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals, and it is free of any drugs or hormones. For specific advice on taking Wellman 70+ with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first.
How and when should Wellman 70+ be used?
One tablet per day is recommended, with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Taking the tablet 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. Wellman 70+ should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Wellman 70+ is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the tablet down, and not tea or coffee as this may cause the tablet to disintegrate too early.
Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Wellman 70+?
Wellman 70+ has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately.
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.

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 has 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.
