Are your products vegetarian?
We strive to formulate our products to be vegetarian whenever possible. HPD Rx ONE contains a wide array of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, and many of the most-researched nutritional ingredients are derived from animal products, such as vitamin D3. Due to our commitment to creating clinically effective products, when we have to choose between a vegetarian form of an ingredient or an animal-derived (yet more effective) form, we choose to prioritize the more scientifically validated form.
Are your products safe to use while pregnant/breastfeeding?
You should consult a licensed healthcare professional before starting any supplement, dietary, or exercise program, especially if you are pregnant or have any pre-existing injuries or medical conditions.
If I am allergic to mushrooms, can I take Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC)?
Allergies to mushrooms are typically associated with exposure to mushroom spores. These spores are located in the top part of the mushroom, called the fruiting body. However, Active Hexose Correlated Compound (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 Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC) successfully.
If you are concerned, please check with a healthcare professional that specializes in natural products or begin taking Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC) very slowly. A gradual increase in dosing can be achieved by following the regimen below:
- Start by taking 1/4 of a capsule on the tip of your tongue.
- If you have no symptoms, such as itching in your mouth or any other sign of allergy, slowly work your way up to the recommended dosage of 2-6 capsules per day, over several days.
