Perfectil Original FAQ
Why has Perfectil been developed?
Perfectil has been designed by experts to complement your daily beauty regime. It contains over 20 essential nutrients including biotin, which contributes to the maintenance of healthy skin†, plus selenium and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of strong hair† & nails†.
Who should use Perfectil?
Perfectil is recommended for use by both men and women of all ages for maintaining skin, hair and nail health. Perfectil replaces your daily multivitamin and mineral supplement, and can be used for as long as required.
Can Perfectil be used during pregnancy and breast-feeding?
During pregnancy, we would only recommend a multivitamin supplement specially formulated for pregnancy.
Can Perfectil be taken simultaneously with medicines?
Generally, Perfectil may be used alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals, and it is free of any drugs or hormones. For specific advice on taking Perfectil with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first
How many tablets does one pack of Perfectil contain?
Perfectil is available in 30 tablets (1 month's supply). One tablet per day is recommended.
How and when should Perfectil be used?
Swallow with water or a cold drink. Taking the tablet with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients. Perfectil should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Perfectil is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the tablet down, and not a hot drink as this may cause the tablet to disintegrate too early.
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.
Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Perfectil?
Perfectil has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately.

How long does it take to experience any benefits in the condition of the skin, hair and nails?
Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases, we would expect the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals in Perfectil to build over several weeks, with noticeable results in one to three months. A regular intake is recommended. There is no maximum length of time over which Perfectil may be used.
Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?

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 DV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the DV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Daily Value (DV) 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 DV, 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% DV.
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.
