When during the day should I take ApplePhenon?

ApplePhenon can be taken at any time during the day, however it is best taken with food.


How long can I take ApplePhenon for?

In a study, participants were assigned to receive apple polyphenol extract for 12 weeks. This study suggested that apple polyphenols were well tolerated.

However, we recommend that you always check with a healthcare professional before using any food supplements if you are on prescription medication or have an underlying health condition.


Can I take too much?

Long term use of antioxidants is considered safe. It is important to always stick to the dosage recommendations on the label. If you wish to exceed the dose stated, you may wish to discuss this with a healthcare professional.


Are there any chemicals in ApplePhenon?

Viridian Nutrition has a commitment to providing food supplements that are free from chemicals, additives, artificial colourings and flavourings. Therefore, ApplePhenon does not contain any chemicals.


Where does Viridian’s ApplePhenon come from?

Viridian’s ApplePhenon is extracted from unripe green apples along the Silk roads in Central Asia. The Silk roads are thought to be one of the largest originators of new species of fruits and grains because of several exchanges which took place along it. Along the Silk Roads, seeds were scattered along the land and cross pollinated with other species of apples creating the ‘Wild Green Apples’.

 

Could I just eat any apple to get the same effect?

ApplePhenon is standardised to 70% of total polyphenols, which makes the supplement a high potency formulation. The apples are harvested at just the right point which allows for the highest possible potency.
The polyphenols are extracted using a proprietary gentle water extraction process, the natural extract preserves the highest concentration of apple polyphenols, strong antioxidant activity and an optimized profile of proanthocyanidins. Whole apples are not standardised to polyphenols and the number of polyphenols in a food can vary depending on where the food is grown, therefore eating apples alone cannot guarantee a specific polyphenol content.


At what age can the supplement be taken?

The suggested dose from 16 years old is 1-2 capsules daily.

How should I store the supplement?

ApplePhenon should be stored in a cool dry place, away from sunlight or anything which may affect its temperature conditions such as the fridge or near a kettle.


Is it suitable for vegans?

Viridian Nutrition’s ApplePhenon is 100% plant-based food supplement.


Can I take the supplement during pregnancy?

ApplePhenon is not recommended during pregnancy or breast-feeding.
