Safety - Frequently Asked Questions
Are your products safe?
Please rest assured that we only use natural ingredients in our products. The majority of herbs we use have been used for hundreds of years to treat a wide variety of conditions. Our products are recognised to be safe to use.
It is important to seek proper advice from a health practitioner if you are seriously ill, in pain or are suffering from a disease or other adverse condition.
You can't fix something if you don't know what to fix.
Will there be any side effects?
Natural products, remedies and health supplements have been shown to have far, far fewer side effects than the vast majority of artificial drugs and similar items. This is well documented in numerous scientific journals.
Sometimes a person may have more than one ailment. When this occurs he or she may show success in treating that ailment but still not feel 100%. Occasionally, there are other symptoms just below the surface. A person undertaking a health program may think that a "new" problem or situation has arisen. This "new" problem has often been there for a while but now the person is aware of it and can do something to handle it.
Only by being aware of what condition needs to be improved can you set about trying to improve it.
A poor analogy would be what sometimes happens with a car. First you replace the faulty exhaust pipe only to realise that you also need to change the oil and spark plugs. Only then will the car sound and run properly.
Undoubtedly one of the most positive "side effects" is a resurgence in energy and well-being!
Are you doctors?
The staff of Organic Nutrition Limited are not medical doctors. A number have a background in health research and have access to a large amount of health information. However, we do not offer individual medical advice as this is impractical. We simply make available the best natural organic health products and general well researched and documented information.
Do you make any medical claims for your products?
The short answer is NO. Many of the ingredients in our products are recognised as having medicinal properties. However, regulations do not permit us to make medicinal claims for our products. We simply make available health products of the very highest quality which are not diluted or denatured in any way.
We firmly believe that taking the correct supplements and living a healthy lifestyle is the best way to achieve good health.
Self-education is a key part of maintaining health and there are numerous internet articles, quality health books, magazines and other publications available and we advice you to subscribe to our free newsletter if you have not already done so.
If you have any illness, disease, pain or any other adverse condition we recommend you also consult your health practitioner.
Can I take the products if I am pregnant?
The vast majority of our products can be taken at any time. However, such is the delicate nature of pregnancy that it is important that you consult a health practitioner or a source of sound information before making major changes to your diet and lifestyle at this time.
Particularly during pregnancy it is important that you take very good care of your health and nutritional needs, minimise stress and sleep well but do not take unnecessary risks.
Can children take the products?
Whilst our products can be taken by anyone, they are predominantly designed for adults and teenagers. Certainly, children should not consume as much of the products as adults and in fact we would recommend that children's quantities should be approximately one half or one third of that used by adults.
Children especially need a well balanced diet and very often they eat junk food which is deficient in nutrition. A simple multi-vitamin/mineral supplement can often work wonders for a child. If you can get a child to try our Superfood or Protein+ product then this will help to ensure their nutritional requirements are being met.
