How should I mix my supplements


Self Supplements are highly soluble in water and taste great. Use the scooper that comes inside the tub and mix a full serving with 8-12 ounces of water. We provide a range rather than a fixed volume of water simply because tastes vary. Some people like to mix their supplements with other juices or with soda water. The sky is the limit!




What if I can't find my scooper?


Sometimes, the scooper can get buried deep in the tub during shipping. Contact us at hello@selfsupplements.com and we'll provide you with additional guidance. On average, the serving sizes are about 5.8g or 6 mL, which is slightly above a teaspoon each.




What time of day should I drink my Self Supplements?


Each product has the recommended dosing on the back label. Products with caffeine are not recommended to be taken in the evening if caffeine affects your ability to sleep. We recommend taking all of our supplements on a full stomach. Immunity + Energy is best consumed after breakfast. Immunity + Brain mid-morning or early afternoon, also after a snack or meal.

All of our daily immunity supplements are vegan. We're committed to selecting vegan ingredients when they are a viable option. However, VACCIPREP contains Vitamin D3 which is not vegan. It was important that we source the most potent form of vitamin D for VACCIPREP because of its short term (14 day) use and specific purpose.

How long can I take VACCIPREP?


VACCIPREP has been specifically formulated for the 14 day period surrounding vaccination. You can take VACCIPREP for longer periods but it may not be necessary. It's broad formulation is intended to help avoid micronutrient deficiencies that have been clinically associated with immune response when vaccinating. While these have been found to be important when vaccinating, their deficiencies may not be as crucial at other times. We recommend taking our daily immunity support supplements for every day use, and VACCIPREP specifically before and after vaccinations.




Why is VACCIPREP only indicated for adults?


Immune response declines with age. This is called immunosenescence. We developed VACCIPREP for adults because they are in greatest need of immunity support when vaccinating.
