* The Daily Values are recommended by the FDA in the United States. These are the recommended intakes in a ~2000 calories diet for an average person. Certain scientists - who are studying sports nutrition - suggest that some components' daily consumption should be increased because of higher daily stress or more intensive physical work like sports. Different diseases, interactions with types of medicines affect the absorption and bioavailability of certain components, therefore the defining of the correct and appropriate doses should be determined by an expert. (Pharmacist, doctor, nutritionist)

The USA's food standards are based on the Daily Values, therefore in cases of products where exact daily intakes are not mentioned only the DV, this chart is the key to determine the real value in theory.

** In the RDA column the EU RDA facts are indicated. In theory indicating these values on supplement products is obligated by law. Unfortunately values and regulations differ a lot from the practice used in the USA. The majority of sport supplements - especially the ones for bodybuilders - are amarican or can be purchased in the US, therefore their labelling MAY be a bit more accepted in public perception.

*** PDI-Performance Daily Intake™: A group of experts made a recommendation for athletes in which they suggest a daily value higher than the standard ones. Sources: Performance Nutrition - The Complete Guide, ISSA, Daniel Gastelu, M.S., MFS and Frederic C. Hatfield, Ph.D, 1995&1999.
Our readers are advised that under any circumstances the values in the 3rd (PDI) column are not officially recommended values for daily consumption and they only reflect the opinions of certain experts. Taking higher doses of particular vitamins and minerals may increase the risk of potential inconvenient side effects! That is why we strongly suggest to consult with your doctor or pharmacist before using the values defined in the last column to prevent any side effects.

After the EU and Hungary, the USA also plans to limit the choice of people in some ways regarding food and food supplements by banning products that exceed the DV and RDA multiple times referring to common health prevention. These bureaucratic measures seem pretty phony when alcohol, nicotine, aspartame - and in some countries even canabis! - can be purchased legally and without restraint while departments can't guarantee the qualitative composition of our foods. We think that impeding conscious nutrition and supplementing with such measures will result in absolutely nothing but education and information will do. Our company and our employees are committed to a healthy lifestyle but we believe that democracy's biggest achievement is the free choice where everybody has a right to decide freely.
