Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I take Levity?
If you suffer from low mood from time to time, you may benefit by taking Levity daily. The ingredients in Levity are time-tested to support healthy mood and energy levels, and the Levity formula is the first to combine these ingredients in unique formula. Levity is completely natural and has been clinically tested for effectiveness. The single small tablet dose is easy to incorporate into your daily regimen.

Can I take Levity with my multivitamin?
Now Available: NEW LevityPLUS Multivitamin! Click
Here for information. The LevityPLUS Multivitamin product is the perfect answer to individuals who want to take the Levity formula as part of a formula with a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals. If you choose to take a different product, Levity Mood Elevating Formula is compatible with, or can be considered a replacement for, many multivitamin products. The six vitamin ingredients in Levity have a long track record of safety. The safe upper limits of the six vitamins in Levity Mood Elevating Formula are relatively high, as described on page 138 of "When Your Body Gets The Blues". For instance, for each of the B vitamins (1, 2 & 6), the UL (upper limit) would be around 100 mgs (twice that of Levity), while the UL of Folic Acid is 1,000 mcgs (versus 400 mcg in Levity), UL for Vitamin D is 2,000 IU (versus 400 IU in Levity) and the UL of Selenium is 400 mcg (twice that of Levity). The upper limits themselves are far lower than a level that would be considered toxic. Even if you take a vitamin product that matches the levels of Levity, you still remain within safe levels.
Does Levity help relieve depression?
Levity was designed to help support healthy mood on a daily basis. A recent study proved that the product, as part of the Levity Program, can help with mild mood disorders, including mild depression. While Levity can help with the nutritional needs of all people, it is not a recommended stand-alone treatment for more severe cases of depression.
I take St. John's Wort. Do I need Levity?
Levity works differently, and won't interfere with the effects of St. John's Wort. You can take both, but you may find that Levity is just as effective by itself. Levity is made up of nutrients that augment the body's natural processes. St. John's Wort, although a substance found in nature, is not a part of the body's normal biochemical processes. In fact, this herb's active ingredient, hypericin, has a similar mechanism to that of Prozac, Zoloft and other prescription antidepressants known as SSRIs (Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors) because it increases circulating levels of seratonin (a neurotransmitter brain chemical instrumental in controlling mood) by selectively preventing its cellular reuptake. Instead, the vitamins in Levity are the building blocks (precursors) the body needs for "methylation", a key natural process in the body that creates healthy, active neurotransmitters.
Can I take Levity if I am taking prescription drugs?
As a natural vitamin product, there is little risk that Levity would pose any problem for those taking prescription drugs. In fact, the four B-complex ingredients in the formula have been shown to make antidepressants more effective, and as a result, some people may be able to reduce the dose of their medication. However, we always recommend that those taking prescription drugs consult with their physician before embarking on a nutritional supplement regimen.
Can I take Levity if I am woman who is pregnant or lactating?
We know of no risk that Levity would pose for pregnant or lactating women. However, we recommend that pregnant or lactating women consult with their physician or health practitioner before embarking on any supplement program.
Is Levity a natural product?
Yes, both the active and inactive ingredients are completely natural. It contains no artificial flavors or preservatives, no chemical solvents, yeast, wheat, corn, milk, egg, soy, sugar, starch or gluten.
Are there any animal ingredients in Levity?
No, none of the active or inactive ingredients in Levity are derived from animals.
I'm on a low-sodium diet. How much sodium is in Levity?
A single tablet of Levity has 0.4mg of sodium, which is virtually a "trace" amount. For comparison, a SINGLE lightlysalted peanut has about 2.5mg of sodium, or six times the amount in a Levity tablet.
How large is the Levity tablet? I have trouble swallowing large vitamin pills.
The Levity tablet is quite small - only 13/32" in diameter (just over 3/8"), and only about 3/16" thick. The diameter is about half the size of a dime across, making it one of the smallest vitamin tablets you can take! We believe that this feature makes taking Levity a breeze. Since the daily dose is a single tablet, you could even break it in two, taking one-half with two different meals, preferably breakfast and lunch. The tablet could even be powdered and added to food.
I have a delicate stomach. Will Levity upset my stomach?
Levity doesn't normally cause any gastrointestinal difficulties, but if taken on an empty stomach, users may experience a vitamin taste when they burp. We recommend that Levity be taken with a meal, preferably in the morning (remember, it provides natural energy in support of a healthy mood). Users with very delicate stomachs could break the tablet in half, taking each half with a meal, or even try powdering the tablet and adding it to food.
How often and when should I take it?
Levity is designed to be a daily supplement, and its positive effects are maximized through daily use. Since most of its nutritional components are water soluble and therefore move through the system quickly, the maximum benefit is not sustained unless the product is taken daily. The normal dosage is a single tablet daily. Levity can be taken any time of day, though we recommend that it be taken early in the day with a meal because of its mood and energy elevating effect.
Can I take more than one tablet daily?
It is generally safe to take one tablet twice daily, but we recommend that you consult with your physician or practitioner in advance. The daily upper limits of the vitamins in Levity are at least twice as much as the dosage of a single tablet.
What will I feel when I take Levity? How long before I feel effects?
Levity users report many pleasant effects, including improved mood, increased energy and sharper thinking. However, individual results will vary because every individual has her own physiological make-up. Many users will feel results almost immediately, particularly if they are deficient in any of the nutrients that make up the Levity formula. Some studies have shown that three months of daily supplementation is necessary to reach the proper "blood status" of some nutrients of the Levity formula. The LEVITY program has proven clinical results over a sixty day period, so users are likely to fully realize the benefits after that period of time - then users can maintain those benefits through continued regular usage on a daily basis.
Are there any negative side effects?
No-the side effects are all good! All of the components of the Levity formula are completely safe at recommended dosage levels (one tablet per day). The individual ingredients are safe, well-known vitamins that only have the potential for mild side effects if mega-doses are taken. Even when combined in a daily regimen with other supplements, it is highly unlikely that unsafe levels would be reached.
Will Levity make me hungry?
Our Levity Mood Elevating Formula, especially when combined with the other components of the LEVITY Program (walking, light exposure), does not increase hunger. Instead, the program has been shown to reduce cravings. The vitamin formula itself is rich in B vitamins, known to have energizing effects.
Can the product be beneficial for men or women, regardless of age?
Levity is suitable for all adults of either sex. We recommend that a physician be consulted before use by pre-teen or younger children. Click

What else can I do to improve mood?
Levity is designed to address the typical dietary deficiencies that can lead to poor mood. We also recommend that people with low mood consider other lifestyle and nutritional guidelines, including:
- Avoid alcohol.
- Avoid caffeine.
- Decrease intake
of sugar and refined carbohydrates.
- Exercise regularly.
- Try to get modest
outdoor exposure to daylight on a daily basis.
- Avoid partially
hydrogenated and saturated fats.
- Favor fresh,
whole food sources rather than processed foods.
- Consider weekly
servings of fatty fish (salmon, tuna) to boost omega-3 intake.
