Frequently Asked Questions
Isn’t IDNutrition just like the vitamins I already take?
No, they are very different. These products are scientifically formulated to provide you the appropriate nutrients at the appropriate time for someone in your unique situation, but more importantly block nutrients you should not be taking because of your conditions or current medications. Put more simply, it’s everything you need and nothing that you don’t. It is truly a revolutionary platform that cannot be purchased on any shelf.
Isn’t this program expensive?
If you attempted to purchase these ingredients separately at any retail outlet, you would pay an average of 30% more without the convenience of the daily packs, quality assurance or scheduled delivery option.
Why are my vitamins this orange/yellow color with speckles?
Natural ingredients have their own unique colors, and the dark speckles you see are from these natural ingredients. IDNutrition™ formulations are optimized using curcumin, quercetin, green tea extract and broccoli extract as fillers.
I’m a vegan, what are the two-piece capsules themselves made from?
Tablets do not contain any gelatin; therefore vegans can take IDNutrition™ tablets without any problem. However, gelatin in the two-piece capsules and in soft gels is derived from animal sources (generally from bovine).
Why are your products better, and why is your manufacturing of products better?
- Other manufacturers of dietary supplements use ingredients with varying degrees of quality. Nutrients should be tested for toxic substances and any kind of contamination.
- IDNutrition™ uses high quality, pharmaceutical grade ingredients that are manufactured under c-GMP guidelines (current good manufacturing practices guidelines are issued by United States FDA).
- All of IDNutrition™ products are tested by FDA approved independent laboratories for quality and potency.

What is Chronobiology?
Derived from the Greek (“chronos” for time, “bios” for life, and “logos” for study), the word used to describe biological rhythms.
Why does IDNutrition™ give both AM and PM packets?
The evolving science of Chronobiology demonstrates that all body systems have a biorhythm or circadian rhythm that serve as physiological indicators that have a “timing” effect on a specific systems’ (i.e. nervous, hormonal, digestive, cardiovascular, etc.) metabolism. Nutrients and drugs respond more positively and give a more desired effect when given at a time of day that best matches this metabolism.
This is called Chronobiology and is generating clinical studies that demonstrate the certain cancer drugs, cardiovascular drugs and gastrointestinal drugs have a significantly different result if given in the morning as opposed to an evening dose. For example, since the liver is regenerating itself on a daily circadian basis in the very early morning, antioxidants (i.e. Glutathione and N-Acetylcysteine) to help strengthen and support the liver are given in the IDNutrition™ PM packet.
Since the pain of osteoarthritis is generally late in the afternoon, our Joint and Inflammatory Support formulas show better results if given in the IDNutrition™ AM packet. By recognizing and applying the science of Chronobiology, IDNutrition™ is delivering the optimal dose at the optimal time of day
What is the logic behind the questions and nutrition recommendations from the assessment?
There are over 5,470 algorithms yielding 1.5 million potential results that are tied to scientific/ medical studies. The program takes your answers and relates it to the science in the studies to deliver the recommendations for each person. The studies provide the basis and support for the recommendations given by the IDNutrition assessment results.
