FAQs

How does FITNE ORTHOMOLEKULAR differ from other dietary supplements?

FITNE ORTHOMOLEKULAR is a composite of vital substances that can supply the metabolism with all its essential nutrients. When derived directly from plant sources, these nutrients are used very effectively by the body, so that any deficiencies can be made up by supplying vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

Unique in the world: organic quality PANMOL®-B-KOMPLEX. FITNE ORTHOMOLEKULAR nutrient complexes are made by germinating organically cultivated quinoa seeds, using a patented process that enables the vitamin B content of this nutrient-rich, gluten-free “power cereal” of the Incas to be increased 500-fold. The result is a high concentration of the bio-active vital substances in the smallest volume – ideal for a natural dietary supplement in capsule form.

Vitamins of vegetable origin - metabolic dosed: as far as is possible, the ingredients are derived directly from plants, or are added together in their naturally occurring proportions as one adjunct, as opposed to individually. FITNE ORTHOMOLEKULAR suits the metabolism and contains nutrients in combinations with which the body is familiar and can process effectively. The vital substances and their dosages are decided by nutrient experts in accordance with the most up-to-date knowledge and take account of the interaction of the individual nutrients in the plant exemplar. FITNE ORTHOMOLEKULAR is therefore as usable and digestible as any foodstuff.

A comprehensive supply: a FITNE ORTHOMOLEKULAR nutrient complex contains important micro-nutrients for the maintenance of a healthy metabolism, and can replace three to four individual vitamin preparations.

FITNE ORTHOMOLEKULAR is gluten-free, lactose-free and free from harmful substances. It is manufactured in accordance with legislation without the use of any genetic engineering. The Skin & Hair and Nerve complexes are also free from animal ingredients and so are suitable for vegans.

   

What does “orthomolecular“ mean?

The concept of orthomolecular medicine goes back to Linus Pauling, a winner of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. His belief is that, in any sick body, there is a biochemical imbalance that can be redressed by the targeted supply of the correct molecules (“ortho-“ comes from the Greek for “correct”, and “molecular” from the Latin for “small part”): “Orthomolecular medicine is the maintenance of good health and the treatment of illness through changing the concentration in the human body of substances that are normally present in the body and are necessary for health.”

In the 1960s, Pauling recommended the administration of high doses of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Nutrient experts today recommend that the doses of orthomolecular preparations should match the natural interaction of all vital substances. According to the latest dietary research knowledge, enzymes, fatty acids and other vegetable substances – also called phytamins – are to be counted among the important vital substances for life. FITNE ORTHOMOLEKULAR is a product that combines vitamins, minerals, trace elements and other plant-sourced vital substances in one nutrient complex that suits the metabolism and meets essential body needs.

   

Are FITNE products well tolerated during pregnancy?

Most FITNE products contain purely natural raw materials that can easily be absorbed and utilized by the body during pregnancy. Pregnant and lactating women’s requirements for certain minerals and vitamins are particularly high and may not be met by food supplements alone. This question should be discussed with your doctor.

   

Can FITNE nutritional supplements also be taken by people suffering from diabetes?

Please adhere to the general nutritional instructions you have been given to cope with diabetes.

   

May children take FITNE products?

FITNE products generally only contain ingredients that are well tolerated by children (exception: FITNE oral sprays and elixirs, due to their alcohol content). As these food supplements have been developed mainly for adults, the doses may need to be reduced, depending on the age of the child. Please ask your pediatrician or alternative practitioner.

   

Can FITNE products be taken by people suffering from allergies and food intolerances?

FITNE does not generally make use of ingredients known to cause allergies. Where there is a risk of intolerance, this will be stated on the packaging.

   

Can homeopathic treatment be combined with other treatments?

Yes. Homeopathy has its own mode of action and gently stimulates the body’s self-healing properties without any concern over side-effects. To ensure that the effect is not compromised, essential oils (e.g. peppermint), nicotine and coffee should be avoided while undergoing homeopathic treatment.

   

Is it possible to take an overdose of food supplements?

The recommended daily intake as stated on the packaging and package insert should be adhered to. Normally, a short-term additional intake of up to three times the recommended daily dose is not regarded as risky.

   

Can various FITNE products be taken simultaneously?

Yes, a combination may indeed be useful, as FITNE food supplements support the body in various ways. The recommended dosages for the individual nutrients should not be exceeded.

   

How long may FITNE food supplements be taken?

Where the demand has been increased by physical stress or a change in personal circumstances, FITNE nutritional supplements may also be taken over longer periods. A three-month course of treatment is also possible. The recommended daily dose should not be exceeded.

   

For whom are food supplements recommended?

In times of high physical or mental stress, the body consumes more vitamins, minerals and trace elements. An additional supply of nutrients may be of benefit to the following categories of people, among others:

  • Pregnant and lactating women, as well as women using hormonal methods of birth control, e.g. the “pill”.
  • Smokers, who are prone to nutritional deficiencies and infections as a result of their nicotine consumption.
  • Athletes, who require an increased supply of nutrients to maintain their performance levels.
  • Elderly people and those with a temporarily or permanently unbalanced diet.
  • Convalescent people and those on diets.
  • Children, teenagers, students and those with high levels of work stress or subject to high mental demands.
  • Those in exceptional circumstances associated with high levels of emotional stress.
   

Which quality seals will I find on FITNE products and what do they mean?

  • Wherever possible, ingredients of certified organic origin are used.
  • Where possible, FITNE products are produced without the use of animal products. Thus, for example, the capsules used for FITNE food supplements, with a few exceptions, are made from plant-based raw materials only.
  • FITNE products contain no genetically modified ingredients.
  • All FITNE products are gluten-free and lactose-free (with the exception of “Intestine Plus” capsules).
  • All FITNE products are, of course, free of synthetic flavorings and preservatives.
  • All FITNE nutritional products display the organic seal. Foods with ingredients certified at least 95% organic may be marked with the organic seal.
  • All FITNE cosmetics and body-care products meet the stringent BDIH criteria for “controlled natural cosmetics”. You will recognize certified products by looking at the following:
  • The development of products that are awarded the BDIH test seal for “controlled natural cosmetics” must meet the highest standards of modern, natural and particularly skin-compatible care. These include the use of natural raw materials such as plant oils, fats and waxes, herbal extracts and floral waters or essential oils and aromas that have been either certified as being of organic origin or collected in the wild.
  • The ecological compatibility of each product is tested, i.e. whether the production process is environmentally compatible and resource-efficient, whether the raw materials are optimally biodegradable and whether (minimal) recyclable packaging materials have been used.
  • The quality of FITNE products has been confirmed by positive Ecotest ratings. Ecotest evaluates cosmetic products from the point of view of skin compatibility and according to ecological criteria such as environmental compatibility and a lack of harmful substances.
