Why should I take dietary supplements?
Nutritional supplements are used for various reasons. This ranges from specific indications to general health. In case of specific indications such as diseases/disorders, pregnancy or intense exercise, the need for certain nutrients may increase. Think of vitamin D3, methyl folate or proteins.
For example, if you are unable to optimize your diet, then basic supplements such as a multivitamin, magnesium or omega-3 can offer a solution.
Are my supplements pure and safe for use?
The products in our range are screened for impurities including heavy metals, microbiology and substance purity. Many results are published on our website so that you can review them before you purchase a product.
The NVWA monitors the quality of food supplements in the Netherlands, while the EFSA (European Food and Safety Association) is the umbrella body in Europe.
What is Ergomax's vision on nutrition and lifestyle?
In terms of nutrition, we are evolution-oriented, to which a primal diet/paleo framework fits best. In our opinion, points of specific attention are that the diet must contain many marine products such as fatty fish, oysters and seaweed. Also respect the seasons and the products they produce. Do not be afraid of ketosis and a higher than recommended fat intake, as long as these are natural fats.
Environmental factors such as a good day and night rhythm and good sleep hygiene are extremely important for health. Therefore, follow the natural course of day and night as much as possible and avoid or block bright and blue light when dusk starts. In the morning, exposure to blue light is advisable as it indicates a new start to the day. Watching the sky directly (without a glass in-between) for a minute or two, whether it is cloudy or not, suffices.
Physical exercise is a therapy in itself and regularly exploring your physical limits with short intensive efforts is very valuable. However, do not forget that there is also a counterpart, and that is consciously seeking rest. Keep these two in balance by doing strength training three times a week and seeking activities such as meditation or qi gong three times a week.
In addition to nutrition based on a paleo framework, diets based on traditional approaches are also very nutritious and healthy.

What is the best way to preserve food supplements?
It is important to ensure that products are not exposed to temperatures higher than 20-25 degrees Celsius. Cooler temperatures are not a problem provided that humidity is not too high.
Always put the lid on the container and avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight!
Can I combine multiple nutritional supplements?
Yes, that's possible. With a few exceptions, most dietary supplements can be combined or taken simultaneously. Always read the product pages on the website, the product label and the ingredient declaration carefully.
Where can I find product information?
All necessary product information for the relevant product can be found on the website. If you still have product-related questions, we are happy to help. A new European law came into force in 2012, which means that we are unfortunately no longer allowed to indicate to consumers what products can be used for. If you have any questions, you can of course contact us by telephone on +31 (0) 24 - 66 353 66.
Can I still take my dietary supplement after the expiry date?
The expiry date, or best before date, is mandatory on food supplements. Because quality and potency cannot be guaranteed after this date, we recommend that you not take expired products.
What happens if a product is not in stock?
We naturally do everything we can to keep our storage well-stocked. Occasionally customs delays or some force majeure unfortunately prevents a product from reaching our storage facilities on time. If a product from your order is not in stock, we will contact you to provide a fitting solution. This may include shipping the missing item for free or choosing a replacement product.
