    Q: I'm interested in purchasing your : VITAMIN E , but noticed that it does not contain Mixed Tocopherols d-alpha, d-beta, d-delta, and d-gamma. It is my understanding that the best Vitamin E to take is one that consists of the above-mentioned ingredients and should also be unspecified and cold pressed. It appears that yours does not contain these ingredients. Can you explain?

    A:

    THE : VITAMIN E INGREDIENTS YOU NAMED ARE ALL DRUGS AND TRUTH BE TOLD THE VITAMIN E IS NOTHING BUT PROCESSED SOY OIL. THE TERM 'COLD PRESSED' REFERS TO "OIL." SO IT'S OIL. ASK YOURSELF, WHAT ARE THE NATURAL FOOD SOURCES OF THESE INGREDIENTS (D-ALPHA, D-DELTA, ETC.). YOUR MEDICINE MUST BE DERIVED FROM A FOOD (FRUIT OR VEGETABLE) AND CONTAIN NUTRIENTS. WHAT ARE THE FOOD SOURCES OF THE PRODUCT? DHERBS.COM COMPOUNDS ARE ALL HERBAL AND THUS ALL FOOD AND CAN BE ASSIMILATED BY THE BODY. THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE

    Q: Can I take the Moringa Formula instead of the Vitamin C formula, and still get the necessary nutrients that my body needs from Vitamin C? My daily regime will goes as follows: Electric Green Combo, Iodine, and Moringa Formula or/and Vitamin C based on your answer. Thanks.

    A:

    You sure can! Ounce per ounce it contains 6 to 7 times the amount of Vitamin C in orange juice. Although moringa will provide you with a plethra of vitamins and nutrients, you still must eat foods that also bring you these nutrients. Supplements are just that, something added to help complete a diet or dietary needs.

    Q: I would like to know if it's ok to take a Multi-vitamin pill? I am only asking because it has iron in it. I have heard it's not good to take iron, because your body already has iron. Can I take a Multi-vitamin pill without iron, or just take a small dosage, or one pill of a Multi-vitamin supplement with iron?

    A:

    I'd recommend to stay away from iron supplements on the market. Only take organic iron supplements (herbal-based) e.g. Dherbs.com Iron Phosphate Formula. Our Electric Greens Cell Food would supply both minerals and iron.

    Q: I had my annual physical in November 2008, where it was determined that my Vitamin D levels were low (17). I did the Full Body Detox in January, which was great. I ordered and started taking the Vitamin D pills after the detox. I went to the Dr. in March, and was retested for the Vitamin D deficiency. My levels had dropped even lower to 8. Was there something else I should have been taking with the Vitamin D?

    A:

    When working on the blood you should never isolate (like only be concerned with Vitamin D levels). The body is holistic, and so is the blood. Focus on the entire blood. You should take (in addition to the Vitamin D) Blood and Lymphatic Formula, Iron Phosphate, and Vitamin C Formula. These help cleanse, purify, and rebuild the blood.

    Q: What is the difference between Vitamin D, and D3? I understand that this vitamin is very helpful in warding off the various flu strains.

    A:

    I highly recommend that you first read the article on the Dherbs.com website written about the so-called swine flu. Here is a link below that you can follow to go directly to read the article. "Vitamin D", is a term for the collective group of fat-soluble prohormones which includes that of D3.

These can all be beneficial to building a strong immune system so as to be proactive in your maintaining your health!

    Q: I purchased the Multi vitamins and minerals because I'm trying to go all natural with majority of the products that I use. anyhow, my question is how can this formula provide every essential vitamin that most otc vitamins if the ingredients don't specify which vitamin they represent and its mg or IU (amt per serving).

    A:

    OTC minerals don't provide all 102 minerals even in oxide form let alone organic form. We use plants, various plants, considered nutritive in that they contain a FULL spectrum on nutrients. Full spectrum means encompassing all and because you use different herbs, the nutrients one herb lacks the other contains. Also, Dherbs doesn't deal in RDA levels for nutrients, i.e. mg, grams, etc.
