Dopavite Original FAQ
Why has Dopavite been developed?
Dopavite has been developed to provide effective levels of specific micronutrients to help support brain function, including zinc and iron which contribute to normal cognitive function, and niacin & vitamin B6 which help maintain the normal functioning of the nervous system.
When is Dopavite recommended?
Dopavite is recommended for men and women of all ages who are interested in safeguarding their nervous system and cognitive function.
Can Dopavite be used with medicines simultaneously?
Generally, Dopavite may be used alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals and is free from any drugs or hormones. For specific advice on taking Dopavite with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist.
How many tablets does one pack of Dopavite contain?
Each pack of Dopavite contains 60 tablets. It is recommended to take four tablets per day, so each pack should last 15 days.
How and when should Dopavite be taken?
Take four tablets per day with a main meal. This is best achieved by taking two tablets twice a day (at different times of the day, preferably after lunch and after your evening meal). Swallow with water or a cold drink, without chewing. Taking the tablets with a main meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce mild nausea, which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Dopavite should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Dopavite is taken with a cold drink to wash the tablets down, and not tea or coffee, as hot drinks may cause the tablets to disintegrate too early.
Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Dopavite?
Dopavite 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?
The full benefits of Dopavite may take place over several months, so a regular intake is advised, taking the full recommended amount every day. Not recommended for children. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake.
Is Dopavite suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
Dopavite is suitable for vegetarians, and has not been tested on animals. Unfortunately, Dopavite is not suitable for vegans.
Difficulty swallowing tablets 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. 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 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.
