Q: Why are the new bottles a 16 oz size?
A: Vera liquid products were originally in 32 oz bottles, but with the rising costs of shipping and handling rates that we were having to charge our customers, we decided to go to smaller 16 oz bottles.  But the good news is – the dosage per bottle (the amount of ingredients) in the new 16 oz size bottles is exactly the same as the 32 oz size bottles.  The new 16 oz size products ar
e just more concentrated.  You can drink the products straight, or dilute them in whatever amount of water that you prefer for taste preference.


Q: What is the best way to take the products and why in a liquid?
A: These formulas were designed to be taken on a daily continual basis for overall health maintenance to provide your body with the missing nutrients that we are not getting in our modern food supply in order to function at maximum levels of wellness. The positive effects of this formula can be felt very quickly but the benefits are cumulative and should get better as time goes on. 


Q: When and how do I take the Vera products?
A: There is no set way to enjoy the many health benefits of Vera.  But the optimal way to take the products is to take the Metabolism product first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, and then take the Collagen Plus at bedtime 3-4 hours after their last meal.  Other people take both products first thing in the morning depending on their schedule.  Just simply take 1/2 oz. (1 Tablespoon) of each formula every day.  Always drink lots of water after taking the products when possible.  A second serving can also be taken later in the day or at night.  The products are best taken on an empty stomach but not required. When taken on an empty stomach, you will absorb the ingredients more efficiently. It will not hurt you in any way to take it with a meal but the formulas will not be absorbed as quickly.  


Q: Can the Vera products help with weight loss?
A: YES!  Both formulas have several nutrient that promote weight management.  And many people take the Collagen Plus formula 3-4 hours after their last meal at bedtime on an empty stomach to BURN FAT WHILE YOU SLEEP!


Q: Can I take more than 1-2 servings of Vera per day?
A: Yes of course, but we have to list a recommended daily serving size on our product labels.


Q: Are Vera products all natural?
A: Yes! They are all natural and we use no artificial ingredients are flavors.  Our products are proven and safe with no harmful stimulants or side effects!


Q:  I know it’s best to take both Vera Metabolism Plus and Vera Collagen Plus together at the same time for more health benefits, but what’s the difference between the 2 products?
A:  Vera Metabolism Plus is more for blood sugar control, metabolism, energy, hormones, and mental focus.  Vera Collagen Plus Build is more for inflammation, joint pain, lean muscle, amino acid support, exercise recovery, and strengthening the body from the inside out. And because of the combination of synergistic ingredients in both of these formulas, we get many good testimonies from people saying they are losing weight and burning fat.


Q: How long should I take the products?
A: These formulas were designed to be taken on a continual basis for overall health maintenance and to bridge the gap between what nutrients that you are not getting in your modern daily diet to function at maximum levels of health and wellness. The positive effects of this formula can be felt very quickly but the benefits are cumulative and should get better as time goes on. We recommend taking Vera for at 60-90 days to get the full benefits of the formulas on daily basis, but many people notice results in the first couple of weeks.


Q: What type of collagen peptides are in the Vera Collagen Plus product and why?
A:  We use grass fed Bovine collagen which has a better amino acid profile than other forms of collagen.  Bovine collagen has a proven track record and a long history of many years of research.  Bovine collagen has a greater amount of  Glycine, which provides strength for connective tissue, joint health, muscles, skin, and bones. It also contains more Hydroxyproline, which plays a role in collagen stability as well as Proline which helps maintain and strengthen heart muscles and other vital organs. Our decision and proven track record of 20 plus years continues to hold true that Bovine collagen is the best choice as it outweighs the other types of available collagen. 


Q: Can Children take the Vera products?
A: Yes and it’s a great nutritional boost for everyone in the morning right before breakfast.  But we always recommend that you consult with your health care professional about these decisions.


Q: Can pregnant or lactating women take this product?
A: Many do, but again we always recommend that you consult with your physician or health care professional. Taking any supplement is always a greater risk during pregnancy and using extreme caution is good advice. If there is any question at all, do not take it.


Q: Can I still take my other vitamins, herbs and supplements with Vera?
A: Absolutely. Vera products can actually enhance the effectiveness of other nutrients and supplements. You may find that after a period of time on the Vera products, that you can cut some of the other supplements back because of your results, and because Vera provides so many all natural nutrients. There have been no reported adverse interactions at all with any other supplements.


Q: Can I take Vera with other medications?
A: Please consult with your physician. Vera products are dietary food supplements. If you do take prescription drugs, just try to take them at a different time so that you do not decrease the effectiveness of Vera.
