What is the recommended daily dose of Vital Cell?
We recommend Vital Cell® as a general daily herbal supplement that can be combined with your daily vitamin and mineral supplements. The recommended daily dose of Vital Cell is 1-2 capsules, 2-3 times per day. Each bottle contains 180 capsules and is a one-month supply at 6 capsules per day.
How much Vital Cell can I safely take in a day?
You can take up to 12 capsules of Vital Cell per day and expect to get additional benefit sooner. However, for most people 6 capsules is very effective at promoting circulatory and immune health.
How do I know Vital Cell is working for me?
You should expect gradual improvements in your overall health with regular use of Vital Cell. By promoting circulatory and immune system health you should feel better throughout the day and night. You should also note positive changes in the quality of your blood in blood tests taken at least 30 days after starting Vital Cell.
Do I have to take Vital Cell forever?
Individual circumstances will determine how quickly your circulatory and immune health will improve when taking Vital Cell. Issues involving circulatory and immune system function may be long-standing and may determine how soon you notice positive changes, and how long you may need or wish to take the formula.
When positive changes in circulation and immune function occur, you can lower your dose gradually by one capsule at a time every 4-5 days and expect to see continued benefits. The reason for this is that, as with all true health-promoting supplements, Vital Cell provides restorative results.
However, as a daily supplement, best results for most people will occur when taking 6 capsules per day.
When should I take Vital Cell?
The most important consideration in taking Vital Cell is to take it daily and consistently. Convenience makes regular use possible, so including Vital Cell in your regular supplement routine is a good idea. You can take Vital Cell with or away from meals. Morning and early evening are the best times to take the formula to spread out its benefits over a 24-hour period. Some men and women take Vital Cell about 1 hour before bedtime to make sure they have beneficial nutrients working while they are sleeping.
Can I take Vital Cell with other supplements?
Yes, you can take Vital Cell with, and at the same time, as you take other dietary supplements.
I take over-the-counter/prescriptive medicines for better circulation. Can I take Vital Cell with them?
You can take Vital Cell while using medicines for your circulation or any other condition. However, you should always take Vital Cell or any other supplement at least 2 hours away from any medication to reduce any possible risk of interaction.
As a special precaution, you should not take Vital Cell if you are on the drastic blood thinning medication warfarin/coumadin.
You should also exercise caution when taking aspirin, plavix or other blood-thinning medication while also using Vital Cell.
If you have any questions about using Vital Cell or any other supplement while you are using medications of any type, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Can I combine Vital Cell with some of your other products like OsteoPhase, CardioPhase, or Herbal Boost?
Yes, you can take Vital Cell with OsteoPhase for bone health. We suggest that you take 1 capsule of Vital Cell for each 2 capsules of OsteoPhase.
You can also take Vital Cell and CardioPhase together. We suggest starting at a lower dose of each formula than that recommended on the bottle, as there is some overlap in function between the supplements. You can increase the doses of each by one capsule per day until you feel the effect that you are trying to achieve.
As noted above, you do not need to take Vital Cell and Herbal Boost together for circulatory health. For quick restoration, we suggests you take Herbal Boost for 3-4 months then switch to Vital Cell as your daily circulation and immune system supplement.

Can a woman take Vital Cell if she is pregnant or nursing?
No, we do not recommend that a woman take Vital Cell if she is pregnant or nursing. This is not because Vital Cell is unsafe but because there have been no safety studies performed on the ingredients in Vital Cell for pregnancy and nursing.
Can children take Vital Cell?
Vital Cell is not recommended for people under the age of 18.
Can I give Vital Cell to my pet (cat, dog, or horse)?
Yes, however, you should contact a holistic veterinarian for advice on the dose you should give to your pet, since animals vary widely in size and speed of metabolism. Both of those factors determine doses for supplements for animals.
Is Vital Cell tested for contaminants that could harm my health?
Yes, we regularly test batches of our formulas to make sure they meet strict quality control guidelines recommended by government regulatory agencies.
Are there any side effects from taking Vital Cell?
Vital Cell does not cause drowsiness or make a person sleepy. It also does not contain any stimulants that might cause jitteriness or lack of sleep.
What do I do if I think taking Vital Cell is causing me discomfort?
The most common discomforts experienced by a tiny percentage of people when taking any vitamin, mineral, or herbal formula are digestive upset or very mild allergic reactions such as skin itching or irritability.
These minor discomforts usually disappear by taking a lower dose or by taking the supplement with meals.
If you should experience discomfort when taking Vital Cell and it does not go away with these suggestions, then discontinue use and contact our product specialist for further recommendations at 1-866-778-2646, ext 2. If we cannot determine a way for you to continue use of the product to gain its benefits, then we will arrange for a full refund for you.
I see that Vital Cell contains licorice. Will that raise my blood pressure?
No, there are less than 40 mg. of licorice powder in each capsule of Vital Cell. This means that glycyrrhizic acid, the active ingredient in licorice responsible for elevating blood pressure is about 1.6 mg. per capsule. At the largest recommended dose of 12 capsules of Vital Cell per day you would be getting 19.2 mg. per day of glycyrrhizic acid.
Studies have shown that continuous use of 100 mg. per day for extended periods of two or more weeks of glycyrrhizic acid is safe and does not elevate blood pressure.
You would have to take 60 capsules of Vital Cell daily to reach the safe amount of 100 mg. per day of glycyrrhizic acid
