Our Top Tips for taking Met4min
It seems too simple... but don't forget to take your Met4min! The best way to ensure you remember to take your Met4min is to add it to a routine/ritual that you already do. For example, if you have a cup of coffee as soon as you get up in the morning, then put your Met4min on top of your coffee so you can’t miss it.... if you DO miss a day don't think your hard work is all undone. If it's just a day or two you can catch up by increasing your dosage slightly the following few days. Although, clearly don't miss a week and then take 8 days of doses in one day! Many of our customers take 2 or 3 grams per day so you’re not going to over do it by having a gram and a half for 3 days.
Tip 2: Take your Met4min with a meal. We believe that this is the optimum way to take Met4min because your body will absorb it alongside the nutrients in the food. If you are taking Met4min in capsule form then you can either swallow the capsules with some water whilst you are eating or break the capsules open and pour the Met4min into water (to be drunk) or your meal.
Tip 3: We get asked "how to store Met4min" all the time and can confirm that, if you have purchased one month's supply of Met4min, then storing it in a cool and dark place is fine. If you have purchased more we recommend you store it in the fridge. Like all supplements, Met4min is sensitive to light and heat but will degrade weeks and months, not hours and days. So it’ll be fine if you pack it in your suitcase to go on holiday or leave it out in the kitchen for a day or so.
Top things to avoid when taking Met4min
Things to avoid 1:
Always buy pure trans-resveratrol. Many Resveratrol supplements are made of Japanese Knotweed which are 50% pure Resveratrol and 50% knotweed root. This means that they only have 50% of the active compound and are less potent than pure Resveratrol. Trans-Resveratrol is considered more bioactive than Resveratrol (cis-Resveratrol) although there have been no conclusive studies comparing the two.
Things to avoid 2: Avoid any blood sugar control supplements, like Met4min, that have unnecessary fillers, binders, preservatives and additives to their supplements. They are added to bulk up products that are in most cases not needed and add no value to your health.
Things to avoid 3: Quality and purity is everything. Unfortunately not all companies agree with us. Whilst Amazon is the world's marketplace and you can find every supplement under the sun on it (including ours), don't take it as given that every supplement on Amazon is pure and tested for quality. Sadly, you will find the cheapest, best selling supplements on Amazon are very often unscrupulous Chinese sellers with very questionable quality. Put simply, they are the best sellers because they are the cheapest. To build (unfounded) credibility they pay 3rd parties for dozens of fake reviews, which gives audiences the perception that hundreds of other consumers are enjoying and benefiting from their product. Sure, there will be authentic reviews also, but for the low/no quality brands that we are talking about here, these are due to the placebo effect.
Of course, this is not always the case and many mainstream vitamins and supplements are purchased on Amazon hundreds of thousands of times a month and therefore some of the best sellers have the economies of scale to be able to offer great value and great quality. But it’s safe to say that for the less well known categories, like longevity supplements, this is not the case and therefore the cheapest products are not what they say.
At Longevity Box, every product we develop is more than 99% pure (as pure as it gets) and we test every batch. You can find our latest certificate for each product on Amazon and our website.
