Is this formula safe to take long-term?
Our Metaboost is designed to be taken for longer periods. Always consult your healthcare professional with questions regarding dosages.
Can I take this formula when I am pregnant? Breastfeeding?
This formula is designed to be taken by all patients. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult your healthcare provider for details.
How do I know that the herbs in this formula are organic?
We strive to use 100% USDA organic ingredients whenever possible. Some ingredients in Chinese herbalism are minerals, as opposed to vegetable, and therefore can not be certified organic by USDA. For our international customers, we have attained 100% BCS Oko-Garantie. This is a standard organic certification for the European Union. Its standards meet or exceed USDA certification requirements and certify for mineral ingredients.
Are there fillers in your formulas?
IAOM uses NO FILLERS, NONE. The ingredients listed on our label are the only ingredients in our bottle. Think this is common practice in the herbal industry? Think again.
As the supplement industry is largely self regulated in the US, there is little to no regulation on how much actual herb is involved in an herbal supplement. Corn, wheat, rice, maltodextrin are all frequently used. Not only do these added ingredients adulterate the efficacy of the formula, but they are a source of hidden allergens in herbs.
How do we know that your herbs are non-toxic?
All of our herbs are grown in China. Whenever ingredients are imported from China, the US FDA requires they are proven for “safety”. The following methods of cleaning are acceptable, according to the FDA, for importation: radiation, sterilization, a chemical wash, sulfurization or ultraviolet rays. That’s right. If you are using Chinese herbs, they have previously gone through one of these processes in order to have cleared customs in the US. The herbs we use in our formulas were treated with UV rays, by far the safest way to ensure their efficacy.
Can I take this formula with other medications?
