General Product Questions:

 

What makes Pureshiva Nadi™ different?

Our Yoga Vitamins™ have been specifically formulated for active women's nutritional needs. Our goal is to support active women, who practice yoga, in maintaining and improving their health. Thus, we offer you only the purest, healthiest Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamins & Minerals - All in one convenient product

What are the main benefits Pureshiva Nadi™ may provide?

Our pure and unique formulations contain essential vitamins and minerals for energy production and metabolism.* Pureshiva Nadi™ dietary supplements offer you a wide spectrum of health benefits and may be vital for heart and joint health, help prevent weight gain, help fight depression, reduce stress and tension and may improve overall skin health.* 

Do I have to take all supplements and vitamins provided in the daily bag of any Pureshiva Nadi (TM) product at once ?

Yes, we strongly recommend to take them at the same time to benefit from the synergistic effects and thus to achieve the best results. Pureshiva Nadi (TM) is offering you a special blend of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that have the strongest impact when consumed at the same time. 

E.g., Calcium and magnesium share a complex and synergistic mineral-to-mineral relationship that is complementary. Magnesium is needed to metabolize calcium in adequate amounts. Given this mutually dependent relationship, it is key to have an appropriate ratio of both minerals for them to be effective at the same time. 

A combined vitamin b-complex with vitamin c supplement is important, since their combination may lead on to even more synergistic effects. Single acid ascorbic vitamins are hard to digest and the combined B and C are believed to promote the increase of cell wall elasticity. Having more elastic cell walls allows the muscle to stretch further without tearing, vital for practicing yoga.

Also remember, if you don't get enough vitamin D, you don't absorb calcium in the intestines well.

Should I take more than one daily bag of any Pureshiva Nadi (TM) product ?

We do not recommend that, since a single bag of Pureshiva Nadi (TM) combines an optimal blend of omega-3 fatty acids, minerals and vitamins for your daily needs. If you are looking for higher dosed fish oil, vitamin c or even calcium, please consider either Pureshiva Nadi Plus (TM) or Pureshiva Nadi Premium (TM) over Pureshiva Nadi Essential (TM). Pureshiva Nadi Premium (TM) offers you our highest dosed omega-3, vitamin c and calcium.

At what time of the day should I take my Pureshiva Nadi (TM) supplements and vitamins ?

Take them in the morning, ideally with the first meal of the day. This is the most optimal time to consume any supplements since they can be active in supporting the body throughout the day.

Do I have to take my Pureshiva Nadi (TM) supplements and vitamins with a meal?

We recommend that. Some of the included vitamins need to be ingested with some form of dietary fat in order to be most efficiently absorbed into the body. To achieve best absorption, these vitamins should be taken with food containing healthy poly or monounsaturated fats. Nuts, e.g., help the body absorb fat-soluble vitamins. Any meal that includes some dietary fats will allow these vitamins to be absorbed.

When can I expect to experience results ?

For most, peak improvement is reached after one month of using the products.

How long do your products last ?

Our products typically last 3-6 months after opening, depending on the item. We recommend using our products within 1 year after opening.

During pregnancy, are Pureshiva products safe to use ?

If you are pregnant or nursing, please consult your physician before taking this product. Our product ingredients are listed on the packaging.

What is the best supplement for overall health ?

Always check with your primary physician before starting a new supplement regimen. 
Pureshiva recommends the line of Pureshiva Nadi (TM) supplements as a comprehensive daily dietary supplement to help support healthy skin, joints, bones, hair, and nails.

Fish Oil:

Is it safe to take fish oil during pregnancy ?

Your recommended dose could be different, please consult your doctor before planning to take any medications or supplements.  As is the general consensus, EPA and DHA provide excellent benefits for your baby’s development.

Do you test on animals ?

Pureshiva does not and will never test on animals.

How can I identify the supplements in the daily packs ?

Please refer to the pictograms on the Supplement Facts sheet on the packaging.

What are EPA and DHA ?

EPA and DHA are specific types of polyunsaturated Omega-3 fatty acids. Your body cannot produce these fatty acids – you must get them from the food you eat, or via supplementation. 

Do I need EPA and DHA ?

EPA and DHA are natural anti-inflammatory agents and play a role in brain health, heart health, protection against cancer, depression, improvement of skin conditions, inflammatory bowel disorders and arthritis.

Our typical diets are rich in Omega-6.  When our dietary intake of Omega-6′s far exceeds our intake of omega-3, our bodies may experience negative consequences with the underlying cause of increased systemic inflammation.  Minimizing dietary intake of omega-6 fatty acids, and supplementing your intake of omega-3 fatty acids, may help to reduce inflammation and the involved negative effects. 

What about mercury levels and other contaminants in fish oil ?

Most high quality fish oils are tested to ensure that any mercury or other heavy metal levels are all below detectable levels. Also, a Consumer Lab evaluation from 2006 of forty-two commercially available fish-oil supplements showed that all were free of mercury, PCBs and dioxins.

Do fish oil soft-gels require refrigeration ?

Ideally, they are stored in a cool and dry place but it is not necessary to refrigerate them.

The soft gels are an industry standard soft-gel and are easy to swallow.

Fish oil provides nutrients for your body's needs daily and in general there should not occur any side effects. It is advised that people taking blood-thinning medications consult their doctors before and during taking fish oil.

Can or should I take fish oil with other vitamins ?

We recommend taking fish oil as part of a healthy diet and supplementation. Avoiding nutritional deficiencies will help to strongly improve your health and wellbeing. It is always advised to keep your physician up to date of your diet and supplementation.

I suffer from joint pain but have not been diagnosed with arthritis. Will taking fish oil help to make me notice a difference ?

Stiffness and pain in joints may benefit from a regular intake of omega-3 fish oil. Omega-3 fish oil should be effective because of its anti-inflammatory properties.

Based on research, are skin improvements of any kind supported ?

Decreased inflammation may lead to various skin improvements, like a strengthening of nails. Fish oil also helps to decrease skin cracking at the fingertips and helps to improve overall skin tone.

Some medicines and health conditions could hinder the normal absorption of calcium or vitamin D. Consult your doctor about a possible deficiency.
