How should I take the FOUNDATION capsule?
We recommend taking two capsules in the morning with some water, and two capsules in the evening before bed. The delayed-release design means you can take them on an empty stomach and by moderating your dose, you get 24hr support. 

I already use another a multi-vitamin, what makes this one better?
Your current multi-vitamin most likely follows the same thought process during formulation as many other brands in the industry. The formulation was made for the ‘average woman’, who is most likely white (plus we argue that there is no average woman). Because of this, 
  1. the potency of certain nutrients is not going to be high enough for a women of dark skin (eg. vitamin D content), 
  2. the grade of the nutrients is likely low commercial grade
  3. the nutrients are going to be low absorbency due to filler products interfering with the gut
Our FOUNDATION capsule uses the highest medical-grade nutrients, with no bulk or filler powders in a formulation optimized for absorption by a nutritional scientist. We have included ALL the nutrients black women need to thrive and enjoy the #softlife meaning that this is the only supplement you need to buy. 
Did we also mention that our bespoke high performance formula was co-formulated by our founder, Nomshado, who is an African immigrant black woman advocating for more innovation in healthcare for women like her.

How quickly will I start seeing results?
You should start experiencing results as soon as 3 days with consistent use. Here are the results you can expect by phase.
The Internal Phases:
1-3 days = You should begin to feel energised. The B vitamins will give you an energy boost for your day
4-10 days = You should begin to experience more restful sleep, better focus during the day and have better control of your mood. Magnesium which is responsible for these functions is helping you during this time. The Omega3 is also helping with your brain health, sleep and memory. You will experience some pretty good days at work from this time. 
The External Phases:
11-30 days = Your skin will begin to clear and balance. The nutrients replaced within your body helps with eliminating oxidative stress and improves cell renewal resulting in noticeably smoother skin. Thanks to antioxidants such as Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Vitamin C. 

Is the FOUNDATION capsule vegan and suitable for other special diets?
Yes, they are vegan-friendly! Being suitable for every diet was very important to us. Our FOUNDATION capsule is Paleo, Intermittent fasting, Keto and low-carb, Vegan and Vegetarian friendly.

Does your capsule contain dairy, gluten, nuts, sugar or any other allergens?
We do not have any allergens present within our formula. Our FOUNDATION capsule is formulated without:
  • Dairy
  • Wheat
  • Gluten
  • Corn
  • Animal products
  • Artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners
  • Preservatives
  • Lactose, sucrose, or dextrose
  • Egg
  • Sugar
  • Peanuts
  • GMOs
  • Herbicides or pesticides
Vitamins typically make me nauseous, how do I know that yours will be any different?
Our vegan delayed-release capsule breaks down slowly, reducing the likelihood of an adverse effect. We advise that you start with a lower dosage (a capsule a day perhaps) and increase the dosage to the full four (4) capsules per day. Always ensure that you take the capsule with water (and with or after food if you would prefer). 

I am not black, brown or a woman. Can I use this too?
We believe everybody has a right to wellbeing - which is why we exist to design products for individuals who the wellness industry does not include. By designing our products around the needs of black and brown women (who do not live in their native environment), we have created a supplement that by its nature includes everyone. Our products can be enjoyed by everyone but more specifically black and brown women. By purchasing from us, you enable us to continue to make products that help us to achieve our goal of making wellness accessible to everyone. 

Can I take this supplement if I am breastfeeding, pregnant and/or planning to get pregnant?
We don't recommend taking FOUNDATION capsule or any other dietary supplement while pregnant or breastfeeding without first consulting with a medical professional.

Can the FOUNDATION capsule be taken with prescription medication?
If you are on a prescription and/or have pre-existing condition(s), we recommend you check with your doctor before taking any supplements. There usually isn't a negative side effect to taking a multi-vitamin, however your doctor would be the most knowledgeable person for your personal medical history.

How is this science-backed?
We have worked with world renowned scientists from a leading pharmaceutical to bring FOUNDATION capsule to black women around the world. The combined expertise of a 500 year old modern pharmacy, and the cultural and indigenous knowledge of our founder Nomshado led to the revolutionary innovation of our wonder capsule. 
We believe that solutions need to be designed specifically for us (black women) and that is what we have achieved. The lack of products made for our particular needs creates an ethnicity wellness gap and the treatment of black women as ‘dark skinned white women’. This colour blindness is costly to black female health.
A research paper on the role of diet and epigenetics in migration, highlights that direct effects of nutrients on gene expression are documented in fatty acids, Vitamin A, Vitamin D and B Vitamins. Deficiencies that can result in chromosomal damage and DNA damage that mimics that of radiation exposure with problems such as brain dysfunction, neuronal damage, immune function and birth defects being presented. 
We have designed FOUNDATION with this knowledge and ensured that for every nutrient deficiency that affects black women disproportionately, we have in our capsule as medical-grade, high potency and optimum absorption so black women don't have to look anywhere else. And for the first time, a black woman has partnered with leading scientists to create a bespoke formula for us.
