  13. 13. Can I speed up the process of package delivery by sending you a proof of payment?

    If you have completed an order form but still your order is not being placed, check again if you filled out all the required fields correctly.

The expiration date of each product can be found on a visible part of the product as well as on our website in the analysis certificate available on a product web page. If those dates differ, the date on a website most likely was not updated, so you should follow the date from the product.

It is also possible to return a product or replace it with the same type of product with a longer expiration date (if there is a newer product batch).

    • ORIGINAL products – simplified version of MAX products

    The products from ORIGINAL and MAX product lines are composed in order to have a specific neurophysiological function. If you’d like, however, to know the exact composition of a product that you order, you can check out our SYNERGY products or powdered ingredients.

  6. 6. How should I interpret markings that refer to extracts?

    A lot of Swiss Herbal products available online are provided as extracts. Next to the extract name you can find 2 types of markings::

    • x:z (e.g. 10:1) means that 1 part of an extract (e.g. 1 gram) was made from 10 parts of the whole raw resource (e.g. 10 grams)
    • x% (e.g. 20%) means that an extract is standardized according to the amount of an active compound available in an extract  (e.g. information „St. John’s wort extract 0,3%” means that every part of this extract contains 0,3% of the active compound, in this case hypericin)
  7. 7. Are Swiss Herbal supplements available as capsules or in a powdered form?

    Multicomponent Swiss Herbal products (series: MAX, ORIGINAL and SYNERGY) are available in capsules. Swiss Herbal products that contain only one ingredient are available in a powdered, loose form.

  9. 9. Are Swiss Herbal capsules vegetarian or vegan?

    No, in our capsules there is an ingredient of animal origin – gelatin.

  10. 10. Do you provide measuring tools with powdered products?

    Yes, you can find a measuring spoon in every package of a powdered product. On the packaging and on the web page of a product you can find information about the amount that fits your measuring spoon. The weight is estimated on the basis of 100 trials for a flat measure tool.

    The list of measuring tools provided with Swiss Herbal products:

  11. 11. How should I store supplements?

    Your supplements should be stored in a dark, cool and dry place, e.g. a cabinet or a locker. Keep in mind that the temperature should not exceed a room temperature, do not expose it directly to the sun. The products can be stored in a fridge, however, supplements in the form of capsules can be broken that way.

    Every container with Swiss Herbal products (both powdered and capsules) has a moisture absorbing bag. Still make sure that your supplements are not stored in humid conditions because the bag can absorb only a limited amount of water. Too much moisture can damage the product changing its structure, durability and properties.

  12. 12. When should I expect an “Out of stock” product to be available again?

    Even though we try to make sure that our products are available all the time, sometimes we run out of certain products before a new delivery. In that case you may find information that the product is “Out of stock”. You can add your email in a box “Add to the waiting list”. That way, when the product is available again, you will get an automated email message informing you about it.

  13. 13. I have an idea about a supplement that you could include in your stock. Would you consider introducing a new product?

    We are open for all your suggestions regarding new products that can be available in our shop. Keep in mind, though, that we have strict rules about compounds that we decide to place in our stock. They have to be thoroughly researched, safe and have significant nootropic properties. If you send us your idea about a new ingredient or a supplement, we will thoroughly check it out and compare it with the newest research data.

    If you have an idea for a new extract, nootropic compound or neuroregulation supplement, see if it has not already been proposed on our forum in the “Suggest changes” section. If not – create a new topic and write about it. You can include scientific articles and all types of data that provide information about neuroregulation potential of this product. We will discuss your suggestion and think about expanding our stock.

  14. 14. Who should I contact if I couldn’t find an answer about Swiss Herbal products?

    If you didn’t find satisfying answers for your questions in this FAQ section, you can contact our product department –

  1. 1. What is the purpose of Swiss Herbal supplements?

    Swiss Herbal supplements are made to support proper functioning of the organism, especially neurotransmitters in the nervous system. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet.

  2. 2. How to choose supplements?

    The supplements should be picked in accordance with the neurotransmitter deficits, general health condition, lifestyle, age as well as individual needs and preferences. In order to check the state of your neurotransmitter balance you can use the test of Dr. E. Braverman.

  3. 3. Is it safe to take supplements with medication?

    We do not recommend mixing Swiss Herbal supplements with any medication as there might be some unexpected interactions that could disturb proper action of the substances. If you are taking any medication, consult your doctor before using supplements.

  4. 4. Can I take supplements if I’m sick?

    We do not recommend taking supplements instead of consulting a doctor or undergoing medical therapy. If you are diagnosed with a disease or you suspect that you might be sick, contact your doctor and discuss the possibility of starting supplementation.

  5. 5. Can Swiss Herbal supplements be taken by underage people?

    The research on active substances contained in Swiss Herbal products and the recommendations about their usage apply to adults. Any person under age should not take supplements before contacting their parents and a doctor.

  6. 6. What is the purpose of the Braverman Test?

    The test created by Dr. Eric Braverman has been designed to estimate your neurotransmitter levels. It is based on questions regarding your lifestyle, diet, emotions and the attitudes dominating in your life. The results provide information about 4 key neurotransmitters that are active in your nervous system : dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin and GABA. There are two parts of the results section – the first one defines your nature, and the second one is about the changes that occurred in your life.

    After completing the test, you will get a chart showing your natural levels of neurotransmitters and the deficiencies. This information can be used to choose an adequate supplementation program that will be aimed to balance the diagnosed disproportions. Experts from the Swiss Herbal Institute can help you to select supplements and prepare an individualized neuroregulation strategy during a consultation service.

  7. 7. How reliable are the results of the Braverman Test?

    The test was created by Dr. Eric Braverman who observed correlation between the behavior of his patients and their brain activity. By gathering data and conducting research he created schemes describing neurophysiological activity of the brain depending on the behavioral reactions.

    The Braverman Test is a tool that includes information about your behavior and is based on your answers. It is important to know because you need to be conscious about your own emotions and devote some time to complete the test thoroughly. The results should be considered a part of an interview that gives an overview on the state of neurotransmitters in your nervous system.

  8. 8. How can I get an interpretation of the Braverman Test and an individualized supplementation plan?

    The basic interpretation of the test will be sent to your email address. If you want to receive a full interpretation with an individualized supplementation plan, you can order a consultation in our Swiss Herbal Neuroregulation Institute.

  9. 9. What is an individualized supplementation plan and what is its purpose?

    Individualized supplementation plan is designed to help you regain natural efficiency of your memory, intelligence, endurance, strength and many other aspects of your life, including emotional stability. In the following stages, the plan will be focused on improving those aspects. What is important, the plan is constructed on the basis of the Braverman Test results. The main goal of choosing proper supplements is to reduce the identified deficits and other issues that you mention.

  10. 10. What is the right dosage and frequency of administration?

    Every product has a typical dosage written on the packaging as well as in the “Usage” section on a webpage for a specific product. There, you can also find information whether your product should be taken before a meal, during a meal or after.

    Remember that every organism may react differently so be cautious and observe the reactions of your organism. If there are some negative reactions, reduce the dosage or interrupt supplementation at all.

    At the beginning of your supplementation it is better to start from lower doses – if you get a desired effect with these doses, there’s no need to increase them. Remember that less is better so if you don’t need to increase the dose, don’t do that. However, if your reaction is too intense with the minimal dosage, lower it and adjust to your needs – some people react differently to typical recommended doses. If a negative or intense reaction is persistent, interrupt supplementation temporarily or completely.

  11. 11. How should I take my supplements?

    The main guidelines on the supplement administration can be found in the description of a product on our website, in the “Usage” section. More information about choosing right doses will be provided to you with the interpretation of the Braverman Test.

    If you have any questions regarding usage guidelines, you can contact us via email

  12. 12. How should I use powdered products?

    Most of our herbal extracts are not water-soluble so in water they create a suspension. Typically, they should be taken with meals so they might be mixed with the food, e.g. a yoghurt, a sandwich or salad. However, keep in mind that with this solution a part of the extract can settle on the plate. It is quite important, especially in the case of stronger extracts that are administered in low doses. 

    The food that you mix your extract with should contain fat (so it shouldn’t be 0% fat yoghurt). The solubility of other products (e.g. amino acids, vitamins, microelements and synthetic compounds) varies.

    You find more information about using supplements on our website in the “Usage” section of a particular product.

  13. 13. Is it true that supplements taken under the tongue work more effectively?

    Placing a supplement under your tongue makes it possible to skip a part of the liver metabolism (so-called first pass effect) which might influence intensity and the time when a supplement starts working. This way of administration might be ineffective in case of some products (e.g. adrafinil or fat-soluble supplements) that need to stay in the digestive system to be transformed into an active form.

  14. 14. Who should I contact if I can’t find answers for my questions regarding supplementation?

    If you can’t find a satisfying answer in our FAQ section, contact our products department –
