Dissolve Almased in 10 to 12 oz of cold bottled or filtered water, skim milk, unsweetened almond or soy milk. To ensure an adequate supply of essential fatty acids, add 1-2 teaspoons of oil (flaxseed oil, walnut oil or olive oil). The goal is to consume 5-7 teaspoons of one of these essential oils into your diet per day. Add cinnamon, unsweetened cocoa powder or flavored extracts for variety.
Yes, you can continue using a multi-vitamin while on the program as well as on an ongoing basis if needed. Vitamins and minerals are the basic foundation to optimal health. A multi-vitamin is a convenient and easy way to take all the necessary nutrients in one supplement, in order to prevent deficiencies. However, we do suggest trying to get your nutrients mainly from food and use supplements as the 2nd source since absorption of nutrients from supplements might be lower.
