How is VITAVIVA different from other dietary supplement brands?
Our products typically boasts higher dosages than many other supplements on the market - this is, among other things, what makes them so effective. In addition, we use many natural plants, herbs and vegetables - both to benefit from their natural effect, but also to optimize the absorption of vitamin combinations. As a Dutch company, we work under EU legislation, which is why all our products are compliant with the recommendations from EFSA (European Food Safety Authority).
I think your prices are a bit high, why?
There are several aspects that affect the price of our products. First, we use high dosages, meaning that you have to take less tablets, to get the same effect or even more effect. In addition, we use many plants, herbs and vegetables in our products - and these ingredients are more expensive for us to use than exclusively synthetically made ingredients. Many of our products are composed of complex compositions of many different ingredients, which the price also reflects - especially when natural plants and herbs are included. It is important for us to emphasize that a multivitamin pill is not just a multivitamin pill. There is a huge difference in the composition, dosage and absorbability of the tablet. Subsequently, this also makes a big difference in what your body ultimately benefits from the multivitamin.
Is It Safe To Take Dietary Supplements?
It is important to buy high quality supplements from a reliable supplier. VITAVIVA has more than 20 years of experience in the production and sale of dietary supplements. Our manufacturers are all GMP certified and we test the products in independent laboratories, to ensure quality.
Can I overdose supplements?
It will depend on the combination of supplements and the amount of these. We recommend that you write to us on our online chat or at email@example.com, where our experts are more than happy to advise you in relation to your personal preferences.
I take prescription medication - is it safe to take supplements?
As a general rule, you should always consult your doctor if you are taking prescription medication and also want to take supplements. We are not allowed to advise you about any potential interactions - this information you need to ask the doctor who has prescribed your prescription medication.
There is a lot of vitamin A in your products, can I not get too much of it?
We use vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene, which is a precursor to vitamin A. According to the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority), there is no upper limit for beta-carotene intake. Therefore, you can safely take our products, which contain high doses of vitamin A in beta-carotene form.
What should I take if I am pregnant?
We recommend our VITAMAMA contained the recommended vitamins and minerals to support you and your baby, as well as Omega 3 from fish when you are pregnant. Our VITAMAMA does not contain iron, which is why you should buy this supplement elsewhere. We recommend that you take VITAMAMA 3 months before your pregnancy, during your pregnancy and also preferably when you are breastfeeding.
When is the best time of the day to take my supplements?
It depends on what supplements you are taking. As a starting point, we recommend that most supplements be taken with a meal and always with water. However, there are some supplements that are best on an empty stomach - eg Probiotics and GABA. You will find the specific recommendations for each supplement under the description of the product. If you are in doubt, you can always write to us on our online chat or firstname.lastname@example.org
I have trouble sleeping, what can help?
We often recommend taking Magnesium if you experience difficulty sleeping. It has a relaxing effect on your muscles and body. If you have already tried magnesium, without obtaining the desired effect, please contact us on our chat or via email at email@example.com for further guidance.
How long is the shelf life of VITAVIVA's products?
Our products have a 2-year shelf life from the production date. You will find the Best before date at the bottom of each bottle. The products can safely be consumed for up to 3 years from the date of production, but the dosage decreases over time and we want you to get products with the specified dosage, therefore, we use only 2 years shelf life.
Where can I buy VITAVIVA's products?
Our products are sold exclusively on our webshop, which is why you will not find them in various health stores or supermarkets. We have deliberately chosen this strategy, so that we can best provide advice on our products and give you the best experience. However, we do have a few carefully selected Dutch stores that sell our products, who also offer qualified advice.
How can I update my profile?
If you have created a profile on our webshop in connection with a purchase, then you can log in and change the information under "ACCOUNT" at the top of the webshop. If you did not succeed in this, please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you as soon as possible.

I think you use a lot of plastic, why?
We continuously try to balance, how packaging and climate footprints can be optimized. For example, our packaging material is produced right next to the actual production of the dietary supplements, so that transport and CO2 emissions are minimized. We are considering alternative packaging instead of the recyclable plastic packaging we currently use, but have not yet found the optimal solution when it comes to both CO2 emissions and other climate impacts. Further, food supplements are also subject to strict legal requirements on packaging to ensure durability, including no UV radiation, air tightness etc.
However, we understand and respect the importance of this area, which is why we hope to be able to offer our products in more environmentally friendly packaging soon, including refill products. We thank you for your feedback and patience with us in this area.
