Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I have to take Arbonne Daily Essentials products every day?
A: Daily Essentials products deliver nutrients important for everyday healthy living: vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, probiotics, enzymes, antioxidants and more. This being the case, we recommend using Daily Essentials products on every day to support optimal health and wellness.
Q: Why can’t I get all the nutrients I need from food?
A: The American Medical Association recommends adding dietary supplements for optimal health due to the high caloric intake that would be required in order to get all the nutrients needed for optimal daily health. Additionally, because many people have busy lifestyles, it can be difficult to eat in such a way as to ensure consumption of all of the required nutrients. Using dietary supplements can increase the intake of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, probiotics, omega-3s and many beneficial botanicals for a healthy lifestyle.
Q: What are the benefits of the plant based protein blend (pea, rice and cranberry)?
A: Pea protein is highly absorbable and more easily digestible*, and when combined with rice protein provides a full amino acid score. Additionally, the arginine content of pea protein is one of the highest of all commercially available proteins.
Q: Why is getting the daily recommended value for fiber important?
A: Fiber is essential for maintaining optimal gastrointestinal health and is beneficial for cardiovascular health. It helps support blood glucose levels already within normal range, and helps you feel full*. Considering the importance of having fiber in the diet, we recommend Arbonne Essentials® Daily Fiber Boost.
Q. Is the sugar content in the Protein Shakes considered high?
A. Clinically tested by a third-party certifier and qualified as having a low glycemic index, the products have minimal impact on blood sugar level. They are low enough in sugar to help prevent blood-sugar level spikes and “crashes,” helping retain a healthy blood sugar level. This is especially important for those who need to avoid high-sugar products or are following a weight-management regimen.
Q. What are the benefits of consuming a high-protein product?
A. Amino acids, including some branched chain amino acids, are the basic building blocks of proteins, which help support muscle, lean muscle mass, and even bone health. The plant-based blend of pea and rice proteins is comparable to animal-based proteins in providing a 100% amino acid score to efficiently meet a person’s amino acid need. Dairy and soy proteins are considered common allergens, and soy protein can be a source of unwanted phytoestrogenic activity. Those following a vegan diet may need a high-protein product to get the necessary amount of protein, as fruits and vegetables are low in protein.
Q. Why is there an extra gram of insoluble fiber in the Chocolate Protein Shakes?
A. Insoluble fiber is inherent (naturally occurring) in cocoa powder; this being the case, it contributes an extra gram of insoluble fiber whereas there is none in the Vanilla Shake. We are required to label the amount of fiber in each product, even if the fiber is from other ingredients in the formula and not necessarily added.
Q. Can Daily Fiber Boost be added to hot liquids, foods and baked goods?
A. Daily Fiber Boost is made from heat-resistant fiber. It can be added to Arbonne Essentials Protein Shake Mix and hot foods like soups, spaghetti sauce, oatmeal and even baked goods like muffins, cupcakes and breads.
Q. What are antioxidants and ORAC values?
A. ORAC refers to “oxygen radical absorbance capacity,” and higher ORAC values generally imply stronger antioxidant capabilities. When free radicals take electrons, antioxidants “donate” an electron to stabilize free radicals to help reduce the possibility of cell damage and oxidation.
Q. Are there any concerns with taking a high Daily Value for the vitamins and minerals?
A. 100% Daily Value is the minimum amount of a nutrient that should be taken. Most vitamins and minerals are harmless in amounts that exceed the recommended Daily Value. If you have any questions about the right amount for you, check with your medical professional.
