Q. Why are the doses of the Prenatal Spray so low compared to the Adult Multiple?
A. VitaMist® Prenatal was designed to be used in conjunction with the Adult Multiple Spray. Together, expecting mothers can obtain a desirable level of vitamin supplementation. During pregnancy it is often difficult to keep down pills; the spray technology solves this problem.Back to top
Q. Why are such toxic elements such as mercury, arsenic, and lead present in the Colloidal Minerals Spray?
A. We do not "add" elements such as arsenic, mercury, and lead in the Colloidal Minerals Spray. The body requires trace amounts of many different elements for proper functioning. In our product, the levels of many of the trace minerals about which people are concerned are VERY low and almost undetectable. Because of the nature of the minerals (the fact that they are colloidal - wrapped in a sheath of organic material) they are not believed to be harmful to the body. In fact, you will find minerals such as arsenic in many fruits and vegetables, and also in other colloidal mineral preparations which are on the market. It is when minerals are in metallic form that they are considered harmful and can accumulate in the body.Back to top
Q. What is the difference between the Grape Seed and Pine Bark Sprays and the Anti-Oxidant Spray?
A. The Anti-Oxidant Spray contains the anti-oxidant vitamins, vitamin A, vitamin B3, vitamin C, and vitamin E. On the other hand, the Grape Seed and Pine Bark Sprays contain a natural plant extract which includes proanthocyanidin, a very effective, natural antioxidant. Yes, they both would function in a similar manner in the body. But, some people would choose one product over another based on their personal knowledge of nutrition.Back to top

Q. What is "RI - Reference Intake" compared to the well-known RDA?
A. The DV, RI, RDA, and US RDI terms generate much confusion. For the Netherlands and most EU countries, the term RDA and RI (Recommended Daily Allowance) or RI (Reference Intake are being used. These two are equal in number. The new labeling regulation (EU no. 1169/2011) effectuated the end of 2014 will leave the choice for dietary supplements to choose to continue using RDA or switch to Reference Intake. On foods and supplements it will be required by 2016 to use only Reference intake (RI). In anticipation to the upcoming requirements we decided to use on all our new packaging, the term 'Reference Intake " for expressing the amount of vitamins and minerals. We see advantages in using 'RI' above the current term 'RDA', because reference intake has no recommendation in itself, making it easier to explain if someone needs more than 100% of the reference intake.Back to top
Q. What combination of VitaMist® products should I take to help treat a specific illness?
A. As you are aware, VitaMist®'s vitamin and mineral products are classified as dietary food supplements. If the labeling or accompanying or associated literature made any preventive, curative, or remedial claims, VitaMist® products would be reclassified as drugs and subject to entirely different regulations by the FDA. Accordingly, the Company makes a concerted effort to avoid making any type of claim that its products can be used for the prevention or treatment of any human ailment, infirmity, injury, or defect.Back to top
Q. Where are the minerals obtained that are in the Colloidal Minerals product?
A. The colloidal minerals that we use are extracted from humic shale deposits found in Utah (in the USA). These deposits originate from plant material which existed some 75 million years ago. The minerals we find in the colloidal mineral extract were present in those plants and reflect the soil composition in prehistoric times.Back to top
Q. For some products, the amount is quite low, why is that?
A. Due to the high uptake by spray application in comparison with other forms of administration spray reaches an exceptionally high efficiency. The issue is not about intake, but about uptake.Back to top
Q. Why is Vitamin D present in the CalMag Spray?
A. CalMag is a supplement containing an herbal extract (the herbs are listed on the label) with the addition of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D. It is designed as a dietary supplement to provide soluble and readily available calcium and magnesium in the correct proportions - thus maintaining a steady supply of these essential electrolytes. The product does not provide 100% of the EC RDA. This would be impossible in spray form. Vitamin D is present because it is a significant aid in the absorption of calcium from other sources and it is a highly recommended nutrient, especially for elderly people.Back to top
Q. What is the source of glycerin that is used in the sprays?
