Cardioace Max FAQ
Why has Cardioace Max been developed?
Cardioace Max has been developed as a convenient source of plant sterols and other specific nutrients such as thiamin (vitamin B1) which contributes to normal heart function.
When is Cardioace Max recommended?
Cardioace Max is designed for those seeking maximum nutritional care in the Cardioace range, with plant sterols and specific nutrients to support heart health.
Can Cardioace Max be used with medicines simultaneously?
Generally, Cardioace Max may be used alongside medications, because it contains only moderate levels of naturally occurring micronutrients, and is free from any drugs or hormones. For specific advice on taking Cardioace Max with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist.
How many capsules does one pack of Cardioace Max contain?
Cardioace Max contains 56 x Cardioace capsules and 28 x Krill Oil capsules per pack. It is recommended to take two Cardioace capsules and one Krill Oil capsule per day, so each pack lasts for twenty-eight days.
How and when should Cardioace Max be taken?
Two Cardioace capsules (green blister) and one Krill Oil capsule (purple blister) are recommended per day, on a full stomach. Swallow with water or a cold drink, without chewing. Always ensure that Cardioace Max is taken with liquid to wash the capsules down, and not tea or coffee, as hot liquids may cause the capsule to disintegrate too early.
Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Cardioace Max?
Cardioace Max has no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended dose. In case of overdose, seek medical advice.

Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively and recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider to swallow the chewed food and so the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the tablets may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies.
How long does it take to experience any benefits?
Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases the benefits of Cardioace Max are established over two to three weeks. There is no maximum length of time over which Cardioace Max may be used. A regular intake is recommended.
Is Cardioace Max suitable for vegetarians?
Cardioace Max contains gelatin, fish oil and krill oil and so is not suitable for vegetarians.
Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.
The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.
Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.
All Vitabiotics products have been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
