Can you tell me some more about this product?
Most men over the age of 30 are probably starting to notice the effects of lower testosterone production, which often leads to a diminished sex drive with infrequent and weaker erections. Inadequate testosterone levels also lead to a loss of muscle size and strength as well as diminished energy levels. The ingredients within the Ultimate Libido™ formula work in a synergistic manner to help enhance the body’s natural testosterone production that does not negatively interfere with testosterone producing cells and therefore won’t cause a reduction in future testosterone levels.
Can you provide a bit more breakdown on what the ingredients in this product can do for me?
Of course! Here is what you're looking for:
*Tongkat Ali can raise testosterone levels slightly, which also helps turn fat to muscle.
*Epimedium has a mild "viagra-like" affect by inhibiting the enxyme that stops blood flow to the penal artery. *Damiana herb relaxes the central nervous system.
*Zinc is needed for sperm production.
*Niacin relaxes nerves and helps the liver break down fats (including cholesterol and triglycerides) to help blood flow.
*Bioperine black pepper enhances absorption.
My doctor has told me I have an enlarged prostate, but I want to take Brad King's Ultimate Libido formula. Can I?
If you have any form of prostate issue, then you must get approval from your doctor or health care practitioner BEFORE taking anything that may elevate testosterone, even natural supplements. Research has shown that testosterone is actually healthy for prostate function, but we still need to stress that you get medical clearance first.
How long do I take this product for and when should I expect to see results?
Ultimate Libido is designed to be used daily, as Malaysian people use the main ingredient - Tongkat Ali - without any breaks and seem to enjoy long term benefits. However, we do recommend that when taking any product that augments testosterone levels, you should cycle yourself in order to obtain the maximum benefits. With this product, you could take the formula for a couple of months straight (3 caps daily, with an additional 3 caps prior to sexual activity) and then take a one-week break before starting again. As Ultimate Libido is designed to increase testosterone levels it could take two to three weeks to notice positive effects.
Why doesn't this product work for me as quickly as a pharmaceutical would?
The ingredients in Ultimate Libido have been shown to work best over time as they help reduce levels of a protein called SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin), which binds to testosterone - making it unavailable to bond with the cells receptors. Most people notice a very positive effect after a two/three week period of time. Once the levels have built up in the system (anywhere from two weeks to one month), regular breaks should be taken from the formula, as it contains Tongkat Ali. The effects should come back rather quickly on re-introduction of the product after a day or two break.
Why do I need to take regular breaks from Tongkat Ali?
You need to cycle Tongkat Ali because the effects can build up in the system and your body may develop a natural tolerance.
Can Ultimate Libido help with premature ejaculation?
Yes, Ultimate Libido can help with premature ejaculation as this is a condition that can be treated by Tongkat Ali. A person should be able to witness the power of this herb within the first few hours after taking it and Tongkat Ali usually shows immediate effects in certain areas such as premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction.
I have noticed that many of Brad King's products contain an ingredient called "Bioperine Black Pepper Extract". What exactly is this?
This black pepper is not the same as pure black pepper. It is actually a standardized extract from the fruit of black pepper (containing 95% piperine). It is used in the majority of the Ultimate products to increase the bioavailability of the nutrients within these formulas. Bioperine is the only source from piperine to have undergone clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its complete safety and research-proven efficacy for nutritional use. Many individuals have difficulty absorbing and utilizing nutrients within nutritional formulas. The Ultimate products insure that people are not only getting the best formulas possible, but that they are actually absorbing and utilizing what they are paying for.
Are your capsules GMO free?
Yes, both our capsule shells and our softgel shells are GMO free.
Why have your cautions and your recommended (or suggested) usages changed so dramatically on many of your labels?
The changes you may be noticing to our suggested usage and cautionary statements have been at the directive of Health Canada. There have been many regulatory changes with regards to Natural Health Products causing companies to change their labels accordingly. We have been updating our website, product information sheets and labels on the actual products to reflect these regulations as quickly as we possibly can.
Where do you source your products from?
All of our products are manufactured at a GMP facility certified by Health Canada. All raw materials come in and are tested for purity, safety and potency. If they do not meet our standards they are rejected and sent back or destroyed. We use the highest quality ingredients available. Many of our products contain proprietary patented ingredients that have been clinically researched. We also use organic whenever we can.
Are your products gluten free?
All of our products are manufactured in a facility that is not dedicated to be gluten free. Therefore we cannot guarantee that any of our products are gluten free since there is always a possibility of cross-contamination.
Are your products peanut free?
Following compliance with food regulations, in order to make a negative claim such as "peanut free", it would be necessary to insure a zero tolerance of any peanut traces, including the possibilty of cross contamination. Although our manufacturing facility has a policy in place for allergen control, there is no specific policy for peanuts, nor is there a specific "no peanut agreement" with our raw material suppliers.
Can your products be used after the expiry date has passed?
Supplements generally keep their potency long after the expiry date. There is certainly no safety issues with consuming after the expiry date has passed however the potency degrades over longer periods of time.
Do all of your products have NPN numbers?
Some of our products have received NPN numbers. Others are in the application process or are waiting to be reviewed by Health Canada.
If a product does not specify "vegetarian capsule", then what is it made from?
These capsules are gelatin capsules sourced from either pork or beef.
Are any of your products "vegan-friendly"?
Yes, AdrenaSense, BioSil, EstroSense and MenoSense (from our Preferred Nutrition and WomenSense lines), our MacaPunch Products and the Ultimate Anti-Stress Vegan formula are all vegan friendly.
Can I purchase products directly from you? I went to a health food store and the prices seem very expensive.
We only sell to Health Food stores since they have a personal commitment to the natural health lifestyle. Consumers are then able to buy our products from knowledgeable staff that are genuinely interested in helping people be well - people who care! Always be sure to look for in store promotions or coupons when you are making your purchases as this can help alleviate your cost concerns.
Do all health food stores carry all of your products?
To find Health Food stores in your area that carry our products, please click on "Store Locator" at the top of this screen. All you have to do is enter your postal code and you will be given a list of retailers in the radius that you choose. We do recommend calling ahead to see if they stock the item you are looking for and in most cases if a store does not normally carry something, they will offer to do a special order for you.
Are any of your products tested on animals?
No, there is no animal testing on any of our products.
Should your supplements be taken with or without food?
Most of our products will specify directly on the bottle whether they should be taken with a meal or not. If nothing is stated, then the choice is yours as to when the best time is for you to take them.
I like the sound of many of your products. Am I able to take different formulas at the same time?
Yes, it's safe to combine various WomenSense products to help support the body in achieving optimal health. The same applies to the Balanced Planet products, Dr. Whitaker's formulas and to Brad King's. If you are unsure of any combination, then please consult your Health Care Practitioner.
I have heard that drinking green tea along with my supplements will end up flushing out all the nutrients? Is this true?
No, you are fine taking your supplements with green tea. Coffee inhibits the absorption of nutritients, but the caffeine in green tea will not pose the same problem.
Can you tell me if I can combine any of your supplements with the medication(s) I am on, as prescribed by my doctor?
It is best to consult your Doctor or alternative Health Practitioner before taking any new supplements while on medication.
Can I take your products when I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
We are not able to make any recommendations with any of our products when it comes to pregnancy or while nursing. You must contact your Health Practitioner, Naturopath or Pharmacist.
I understand that you put a recommended dosage on your labels, but I can take more or less than that, right? And, really, do I have to take the product every day?
With regards to the recommended dosage, we would suggest you speak to your Doctor or Health Care Practitioner before increasing any amounts. As with any supplement you can determine your amount based on your personal preference - if you find that a product works for you immediately then you should be fine to take it just on the days you feel you need it, but again we suggest you discuss this with you MD or HP. Some consumers find that a product needs to be in their system for a few days to a few weeks before they notice results and/or feel the full benefits.
I don't understand why when I purchase your product and open the bottle, the contents don't even fill 1/2 of the packaging that is being used?
The containers we use are determined based on product fill and required label information, as well as capsule count when/where applicable. Sometimes we do have to use a larger bottle than seems necessary because of the information required on the labels - requirements both from Health Canada and in order for the label to be clear and legible to our consumers. Also, in a case where we are offering larger volume (ie/ 400g versus 200g or 180 capsules versus 90 capsules), then we have to put the contents in a bigger container in order for there to be differentiation on the shelf.
What is your 100% money-back guarantee?
Our 100% money back guarantee ensures that if a customer is not completely satisfied with their purchase, they can return it to their point of purchase and we will credit the Health Food store 100% of their purchase price from us. We cannot dictate if a store will give cash back or an in-store credit ~ but we do promise to credit them, regardless of the reason for the return.
