1Why is HAVVN GO Nutrition in a stick pack?
HAVVN chose to create a stick pack product as a result of our scientific partnership with the UC Davis Center for Excellence in Nutrigenomics and the identification of the importance of offering nutrition that is optimized for healthy gene expression. The more we learned about the science of Epigenetics, the more we realized the need for a gene targeted supplement that is convenient for the consumer and environmentally friendly. A stick pack product was the perfect solution. It enables HAVVN to deliver potent and specialized ingredients, developed by leading experts in the field of Nutrigenomics, in a way that amplifies the effectiveness of the ingredients.
2What is the difference between HAVVN GO Nutrition and HAVVN JUS?
HAVVN GO and HAVVN JUS share many common ingredients, but also have unique ingredients. While HAVVN JUS has some Nutrigenomic benefits, it is designed to be foundational nutrition. HAVVN GO was developed by leading experts in the field to specifically target longevity and anti-inflammatory genes in order to extend your Youth Span across your lifespan. This is accomplished by activating the gene networks associated with longevity and youth. In addition, HAVVN GO is formulated with specific ingredients to boost natural, cellular energy and to enhance mood; extending Youth Span in the way you feel immediately as well as on the inside at the genetic level. Both HAVVN GO and HAVVN JUS provide general nutrition with nutrients and antioxidants. GO Nutrition is a significant source of vitamins and a good source of fiber.
3Do the HAVVN GO and HAVVN JUS have to be taken together?
No, we suggest taking both products because they each provide specific benefits, but they do not have to be taken in unison.
4Can HAVVN GO be taken on an empty stomach?
You may drink a HAVVN Go with or without food. Some people with sensitive stomachs may still prefer to take the GO stick pack with food or sip it slowly over an hour.
5Should HAVVN GO be taken at the same time every day?
No, this is a matter of personal preference. Some people find the GO stick pack to be helpful in getting started in the morning, while others find it most useful for an afternoon boost. Many people enjoy the GO stick pack as part of their workout regime. Experiment and find what works best for your schedule and lifestyle.
6Can I take HAVVN GO if I’m pregnant?
Many pregnant and lactating women enjoy the GO Stick Pack. However, we always advise consulting your doctor before taking any supplement during pregnancy or breast feeding.
7How many GO stick packs are recommended to be taken each day?
While a single serving of the HAVVN GO is designed to be an efficacious daily dose, many people enjoy the added benefits of natural energy and mood enhancement more than once a day. Due to the fat-soluble vitamins found in the GO stick, it is not recommended to consume more than three sticks a day on a regular basis.
8Should I consult my physician before taking HAVVN GO?
Generally we always recommend consulting your physician before taking a supplement. If you take any medication, you should always check with your doctor before taking any supplements. HAVVN GO Nutrition has a unique patented ingredient called BioPerine that increases the bioavailability of many of the ingredients found in the GO stick. BioPerine has been shown to also increase the bioavailability of some medications.
9Does HAVVN GO have an expiration date?
The expiration date is two years from the manufacture date. The expiration date is printed on each pack in the following format, “EXP MM.YY.”
10How many stick packs are in a box?
11Will the HAVVN GO affect the medication I am on?
If you take any medication, you should always check with your doctor before taking any supplements. HAVVN GO has a unique patented ingredient called BioPerine that increases the bioavailability of many of the ingredients in the GO Stick. BioPerine has been shown to also increase the bioavailability of some medications.
Powder was the best delivery system to accomplish all the goals of this product. Several of the ingredients remain more stable and efficacious if left in a protected, dry state until consumption.
13What are the individual packages made of?
The packages are made from several materials adhered together to form a thin film. The material that is in contact with the product is called Surlyn and is FDA-approved for direct food contact. The other layers consist of foil and plastics designed to provide barriers for light, vapor, and moisture.
14How was HAVVN GO created and by whom?
HAVVN GO was created from a collaborative effort of industry leading Nutrigenomic experts, including Dr. Raymond Rodriguez, nutrition experts, and an experienced formulation team.
15Can I mix the GO stick pack with liquids other than water?
Of course, experiment and find your favorite. However, it is not advised to mix HAVVN GO with carbonated water or sparkling water as the ingredients will combine and create large amounts of foam and bubbles.
16How many calories are in a GO stick pack?
When mixed with water, the GO stick pack contains only 35 calories.
17How is HAVVN GO sweetened?
HAVVN GO contains no added sugar. Each stick pack contains 3g of naturally occurring sugars. The flavor system of HAVVN GO is made from a base called VitaFiber (that comes from tapioca), Xylitol, Stevia, and natural fruit powders.
18Can children take HAVVN GO?
HAVVN GO is not designed for infants. Children 3-12 years of age can take half of GO stick pack daily. Children 13-18 years old should not have more than one GO stick pack each day.
19Why does HAVVN GO powder leave my fingers yellow if I touch it?
One of the potent ingredients in the anti-inflammatory gene blend is Curcumin from Turmeric. The ingredient is naturally yellow and tends to stain. It will wash off hands with soap and water.
20Is HAVVN GO acidic?
HAVVN GO’s pH value is 3.7, which makes it slightly less acidic than orange juice.
21Where does the dietary fiber in HAVVN GO come from?
The dietary fiber in HAVVN GO comes from a unique base called Vitafiber - an IMO (isomalto-oligosaccharide). Vitafiber is also a prebiotic - a category of functional food, defined as non-digestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the body by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon, and thus improve host health. Numerous scientific studies showed that Vitafiber is a prebiotic and improves overall digestive health.
22Why was Vitafiber selected?
We selected this as our base for its many benefits. Fermentation of Vitafiber by colonic bacteria may result in production of Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFA). SCFAs have been shown to metabolize in the liver and confer many physiological benefits to the body. It is a great addition to HAVVN GO as it is a low caloric health sweetener because of the very low content of glucose (5%) and presence of specific bonding in the carbohydrate chains that are resistant to digestive enzymes in the lower digestive tract.
23Does HAVVN JUS or HAVVN GO contain caffeine?
The Green Tea used in HAVVN JUS is decaffeinated. HAVVN GO does contain 20-30 mg of naturally occurring caffeine. This is about the same amount of caffeine found in a dark chocolate bar and typically much less than is found in caffeinated beverages and “energy” drinks. Caffeine is not added as an isolated ingredient. Aside from the mild alert feeling provided by caffeine and ginseng, the energy benefits from HAVVN GO mainly come from natural cellular energy produced by ingredients such as Quercetin, CoQ10, B vitamins, and other ingredients. Many users of HAVVN GO report a feeling of sustained steady energy.
24Why is silicon dioxide used as a flow agent?
Silicon dioxide is natural and is the most abundant mineral in the earth’s crust. It is also found naturally in many fruits and vegetables. Because it is such an abundant mineral it is also found in everyday drinking water. Other vitamin products may contain up to 3% silicon dioxide and food products up to 2%. HAVVN GO is well below these levels.
25Are HAVVN DNA, GO Nutrition, and JUS gluten free?
Yes, we have tested them and test results have come back indicating that they are gluten free.
26Why do I notice slight changes in taste from one batch to another?
Slight flavor and color changes in the Jus and GO stick is a result of using natural products with no artificial flavoring or coloring. We see this especially in the case of JUS and GO due to the unusually high number of ingredients and complex formulations. We have many quality controls in place to ensure efficacy does not vary or drop below established standards. Our processes and controls also ensure that from an ingredient standpoint the product is identical from batch to batch.
27What is the patent on the GO stick for?
The GO stick is manufactured using a patent pending process owned by HAVVN that is specifically designed to protect the ingredients from environmental factors shown to reduce efficacy in certain natural substances. The factors that are taken into account and controlled using this process are exposure to light, oxygen, heat, and moisture. We have seen improved testing in the finished product that we attribute in part to our patent pending process. Our formulas are not patented because this would force us to make our proprietary formulations public knowledge. Instead we keep our formulas confidential under the legal protection provided under “trade secret” law. Trade secrets never expire as would a patent.
