If you have a truly tough case, or cases, and you want to start a Custom Formulation from scratch then as a PWA you have the option to book a 30-minute formulation consultation with Lisa Pitel-Killah; to discuss test results and a customized mix for your client(s). Please note: there is documentation requested for this consultation and will need to be submitted prior to your appointment date and time. See Shop notes for details.
With any client protocol advising to start low and slow is key. With Vykon Custom powders we recommend starting with 1/4 dose in the AM and PM for a minimum of 3-4 days prior to moving up to 1/2 a dose and so on, until a full dose is achieved. If, at anytime, a client has herxing reactions, such as diarrhea, bloating or nausea, go back to the dose where this did not happen for at least 5 days and SLOWLY start to increase again. Some detox reactions have been reported, but are minimized with this approach.
During testing minimal side effects were reported. Common side effects were bloating and diarrhea, especially if a full dose was used at the immediate start of the protocol. It is very important for clients to start with 1/4 dose in the AM and then move up slowly over the course of 10-14 or more days until they reach the full dose. This gives the body time to adjust to avoid any herxing reactions. If at any time, these reactions continue then advise them to reduce back to the dose where these reactions were not happening and stay at this particular dose for a minimum of 5 days prior to attempting to increase dose again. Every client is unique and some individuals may take much longer to titrate up to a full daily dose.
At Vykon we are committed to keep all of our products are truly natural. All of our products contain a flavour profile existing of: organic stevia, organic banana fruit powder, natural vanilla bean powder, natural citrus flavour and citric acid.
You can choose to mix each serving into 6oz. of water, juice, smoothie or into soft foods.
If you have clients that are having extreme difficulties try suggesting adding 1-2 drops of food grade peppermint essential oil into the mix. This creates a very aromatic profile and the flavour is quite pleasant.

Many supplement companies use fillers and artificial flavours. We refuse to use anything artificial in any Vykon Custom or Performance product.
All ingredients that come into the lab are heavy metal tested and come with a Certificate of Analysis. The lab does not use metal mechanical equipment for their formulations; so the risk of contamination within the lab are extremely low.
