No. Alvityl is a food supplement that contributes to well-being and helps you stay in good health. Medicines treat illnesses or diseases.
No, Alvityl is formulated on the basis of RDAs/NRVs (average nutritional requirement). When taken as instructed, it provides 100% of RDAs/NRVs but never exceeds them.
RDAs (Recommended Daily Allowances) or NRVs (Nutrient Reference Values) are reference values for labels set on a European level. RDAs/NRVs have been selected as average values that approximately correspond to the requirements of the population. They allow any individual to aim for an intake range within which the probability of a deficiency is low. Alongside RDAs/NRVs, there are also DRIs: Dietary Reference Intakes. These take into account age, gender and specific situations (pregnant or breastfeeding women, elderly people). Let’s take the example of Iron:
|RDA / NRV||DRI children from 4 to 6 years||DRI adult men||DRI adult women||DRI post-menopausal women|
|Iron quantity (in mg)||14||7||9||16||9|
RDAs / NRVs are therefore easier to use since they are appropriate for an average individual, whereas DRIs are more specific.
The action of vitamins and minerals is not instant. They are absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, often converted into active substances and then stored (in the liver, kidneys, brain, bones, etc.) before being redistributed to the various target organs as required. That is why deficiencies do not develop straight away when intake of an element stops: the body will first use up all its reserves before any visible clinical signs develop. The speed of this process depends on the vitamins and minerals in question. So it is essential to ensure a constant daily intake to maintain optimal stores and restore reserves during periods when requirements are increased.
Alvityl Vitality Multivitamin oral solution, Alvityl Vitality Effervescent, Alvityl Vitality tablets to be swallowed and Alvityl Vitality chewable tablets can be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women, but it is preferable to inform your doctor to avoid any risk of overdose. As a precaution, Alvityl Defences, Alvityl ® Boost and Alvityl ® Petit Boost are not recommended in pregnant or breastfeeding women due to the specific characteristics of these situations.
You can take Alvityl Vitality tablets to be swallowed, which will supply you with less than 300 mg of sugar per day. Alvityl Vitality Effervescent is sugar free. Alvityl Defences tablets contain only traces of sugar.
The exclusive packaging for Alvityl Vitality Multivitamin oral solution in a pressurised bottle ensures optimal storage of its formula. The bottle prevents the vitamins coming into contact with light or air. In addition, the orange cap makes it easy to use.
Once the oral solution has been opened, the pressurised bottle (under nitrogen) enables optimal storage of the oral solution, with no deterioration over time. When it is used, the product does not come into contact with air or light. Therefore Alvityl Vitality Multivitamin oral solution does not need to be used within a specific period of time after opening.
Alvityl Defenses, Alvityl Appetite and Alvityl peaceful night bottles need to be kept refrigerated after opening, but Alvityl Vitality oral solution can be kept at room temperature.

If you think you are lacking vitamins, there is no age limit for its use. However, it is recommended that you ask your doctor for advice if you are taking any other medicines at the same time.
Generally speaking, it is not recommended that you take several food supplements simultaneously without first seeking the advice of a health professional. If you do take several supplements simultaneously, it is important to make sure they do not contain the same active ingredients to avoid any risk of overdose.
It is not dangerous to use the products beyond their best before date, but their active ingredient contents may be lower than those indicated. Therefore it is recommended to comply with the best before date.
We advise against giving Vitality chewable tablets to children below the age of 4 years to avoid any risk of choking. If you really want to give your young child a half tablet, we recommend that you crush it into a powder first and mix it with a spoonful of yoghurt or compote, etc. The ideal form for young children is the liquid format.
We recommend that the product should not be used for more than 8 consecutive weeks as a precaution, in case using the product makes your child’s immune system “lazy”. This theoretical possibility has been suggested by the scientific community for Echinacea.
Therefore, as a precaution, we recommend that the product be taken for a maximum of 8 weeks consecutively. You should leave an interval of at least 1 month between two 2-month courses.
Generally speaking, food supplements constitute occasional treatments that should not be taken all year long, but as a maximum of 1 to 3 courses per year.
You should always ask your doctor for advice in this situation.
No. It would be better to take the chewable tablet form, which can be crushed.
