Whenever possible, Quality of Life formulates our products to be vegetarian and provides them in vegetarian capsules made from vegetable cellulose. However, many of the most-researched nutritional ingredients are derived from animal products, such as vitamin D3, chondroitin, collagen, and Neptune krill oil. Because of our commitment to clinically efficacious products, when we have to choose between a vegetarian form of an ingredient (such as vitamin D2) or an animal-derived, yet more efficacious form (such as vitamin D3), we choose to prioritize the more scientifically validated form.
In general, yes. Because our products are formulated for specific conditions, there is very little ingredient overlap among them. In some cases, where an ingredient has multiple functions (such as vitamin D), it may be included in several products, but rarely at the upper intake level (the highest level of a nutrient that can be taken ongoing with no side effects). For example, the upper intake level for vitamin D is 4,000 IU, and the vitamin D content of Quality of Life products ranges from 400 to 2,000 IU per day.
As with any nutritional supplement, you should always consult with a health care practitioner when assessing the safety of any Quality of Life product while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Some products are best taken on an empty stomach, while others are better taken with food. The label of each Quality of Life product will indicate the best time to take it under “Suggested Use.” That said, the very best time to take your supplements is when you remember to take them! When it comes to results, consistency is more important than timing.
Quality of Life complies with the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act, which took effect January of 2006 and mandates that any product containing one of the eight major allergens — milk, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts and soybeans — be clearly labeled.
The same raw material is used in both Kinoko Platinum and Kinoko Gold AHCC products. The only difference is that Kinoko Platinum contains 750mg of AHCC per capsule while Kinoko Gold has 500mg of AHCC per capsule.
Allergies to mushrooms are most often associated with exposure to mushroom spores. These spores originate in the top of the mushroom, called the fruiting body. However, AHCC is derived from the mycelia, or root of the mushroom, which does not contain spores. In addition, as part of the manufacturing process, the raw material is subjected to a fermentation process that breaks down the high molecular weight molecules that are very tough to digest, into low molecular weight compounds. This process further lowers any allergenic potential. Many people who believe they are allergic to mushrooms take AHCC successfully. However, if you are concerned, please check with a healthcare professional that specializes in natural products or begin taking AHCC very slowly. This can be done by starting with a quarter of a capsule on the tip of your tongue and if you don’t experience itching in your mouth or other signs of allergy, work your way up to 2 to 6 capsules per day over a period of several days.
