Does Biological Botanical use natural sources to create their vitamins?
We search the globe for the best and most effective ingredients from natural sources when possible. However, some items can only be synthesized and cannot be obtained from natural sources. When the option of using a natural source is unavailable, such as melatonin, we resort to ingredients that are synthesized in a lab. In short, yes, when possible, we use natural sources for our active ingredients.
What types of additives are used in creating the supplements?
One of our primary goals when adding inactive ingredients is to only use that which is needed to create a safe and effective product. Many people see binders, fillers and excipients and feel they are unnecessary and harmful. This is not always true, sometimes inactive ingredients are needed so the active ingredients can be time-released, or dispersed properly for absorption purposes. The science behind choosing the specific amounts and types of inactive ingredients is just as important and as necessary as it is with choosing the active ingredients. We keep safety and quality a top priority as well as product integrity and functionality as we formulate the inactive ingredient portion of each product.
What does sublingual mean?
Sublingual is Latin and literally means, under the tongue. Products that are sublingual are placed under the tongue to be absorbed by tissues and diffused directly into the blood instead of digested in the stomach or absorbed in the intestines. Some vitamins cannot be effectively absorbed through regular ingestion so sublingual products assist in faster and more direct absorption, such as B12.
