Will any of the McCleary Scientific Products interfere with the prescription medications I may be taking?

All McCleary Scientific Products have been tested for safety and there were no adverse reactions noted. Many of the participants in the clinical trials used to test the products were older and were taking a broad array of medications. In those persons there were also no problems noted. In addition, McCleary Scientific Products have been formulated to AVOID such interactions. Do not take McCleary Scientific Products if you have allergies to any of the ingredients. McCleary Scientific Products contain no stimulants and should not raise your blood pressure or heart rate or interfere with blood pressure or heart medications. However, when starting any drug, combining drugs, or adding a nutritional supplement to current drug use it is recommended that you consult with a health care professional.

Are the McCleary Scientific Products - Lucidal ® , Bonexid ® and Vitaloss ® - safe for women who are
pregnant or are breast-feeding?

While most of the individual ingredients in McCleary Scientific Products are in a healthy diet, the products have not been tested in women who are pregnant or are breast-feeding. Therefore, we recommend not using McCleary Scientific Products at these times. However, since pregnancy and breast-feeding are also times of high calcium loss from bones, we suggest taking Bonexid ® and other McCleary Scientific Products again (as appropriate to health) as soon as a health care professional says it is safe to do so.

Can I take McCleary Scientific Lucidal ® if I am using an anti-anxiety/anti-depression medication?

If you rate using such medications, we recommend that before starting to take Lucidal ® you let a health care professional know you wish to take Lucidal ® , and seek and take appropriate advice. Currently, no medications have been identified that have adverse interaction with Lucidal ® .

Can I take McCleary Scientific Bonexid ® if I have a medical condition such as high blood pressure,
cholesterol problems, diabetes or heart disease?

Although Bonexid ® appears to be safe and has not been shown to adversely affect any of these conditions, if you are under the care of a health care professional for any health conditions and taking medications to control them, it's always prudent to speak with a health care professional before taking any new supplement or medication. It is unwise to adjust your medications and supplements on your own.

Why can't I simply purchase the individual ingredients in the McCleary Scientific Products - Lucidal ® , Bonexid ® and Vitaloss ® - and make my own "homemade" version(s)?

Certainly you could do this if you took the individual ingredients in the proper ratios. However, you can be assured that McCleary Scientific offers you two advantages. First, you would have to take a very large number of pills several times a day to get the correct amounts of these nutrients individually. Second, the cost of purchasing them all would be prohibitive. There are over 50 separate ingredients in Lucidal ® alone. The cost savings and simplicity make McCleary Scientific Products a more effective way to achieve the results you want.

What is the McCleary Scientific Money Back Guarantee?

McCleary Scientific wants you to be fully satisfied with its products. If you are not satisfied with any products you have 30 days from the time you receive your order to simply contact customer service and obtain instructions on how to receive a full refund minus the cost of shipping and handling.

Why do we lose memory as we age?

The rate of "brain aging" varies from person to person. Starting from before birth, new nerve cells - called neurons - are constantly being produced throughout the brain and form thousands of connections with other neurons. This connectivity enables the brain to perform effectively as the powerful computing machine it is. As we age, the brain's neurons lose some of their connections and, as a result, are not as efficient in processing all the information that is required. When the number of connections and the function of the individual nerve cells are enhanced, brain power improves/will improve.

Will Lucidal ® serve as a replacement for my multi-vitamin?

Lucidal ® can serve as either a replacement or an enhancement to your daily multi-vitamin. Lucidal ® consists of two parts: - The nutritional platform, which is a unique multi-vitamin. - The mental function platform that builds on the basic actions of the multi-vitamin portion.

Has Lucidal ® been tested? If so, how?

Yes, using what is known in clinical testing as the "gold standard" for scientific research: a randomized, prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study. This clinical study was conducted on humans by an independent, third party scientific organization that specializes in dietary supplement testing. The clinical trial demonstrated statistically significant improvements in multiple brain functions from the use of Lucidal ® .

How does Lucidal ® affect the brain?

Lucidal ® provides many brain-specific ingredients designed to work together to enhance nerve cell function, improve connectivity, speed up the rate at which brain cells communicate with each other, decrease the damaging effects of free radicals, slow brain atrophy (shrinkage), enhance mitochondrial function (the energy generating parts of the cells) and improve neurotransmitter function (such as acetylcholine (for memory and focus)) and dopamine (for feeling good and being more focused).

Does Lucidal ® contain any stimulants?

Unlike some other brain enhancement products, Lucidal’s ingredients work together to provide extra energy and alertness without the use of stimulants.

Are there any known side effects associated with Lucidal ® ?

The people taking the product in the clinical trial were monitored for any evidence of adverse reactions. Based on the human clinical trial, Lucidal ® was found - with statistically significant improvement over people taking placebo - to be both safe and effective. Lucidal ® has been used millions of times with an excellent safety record.

How will I know Lucidal ® is working? When can I expect to feel results?

It varies from person to person. Frequently, improved mental energy is experienced after only a few days. Sometimes, instead of feeling sluggish at the end of the day, a sense of well-being and a calm, yet alert, state of well-being is noted. Or one may experience an improved ability to concentrate, often for prolonged periods of time. Some users first notice the ability to work longer, study harder, be more creative or recall words and names more easily. Many people describe feeling less “stressed out.” Sometimes the changes are subtle and are noticed by people around you before you even notice them yourself.

What if I miss a Lucidal ® serving?

Since Lucidal ® is not a drug, it's okay if you miss a serving. If you forget to take it in the morning, just take it later in the day when you remember. If you forget completely, just take the next day's serving in the morning with breakfast. There is no need to “double-up” in an attempt to catch up.

When is Lucidal ® normally taken?

In the human clinical trial subjects took three capsules in the morning. We suggest taking it with a meal. It may also be taken three times a day, or two pills at one time and one at another, or any combination of these. Sometimes the product is best taken an hour before a mentally taxing event, or when maximal effect is desired.

How does Lucidal ® work?

Lucidal ® enhances the function of individual nerve cells and also facilitates the communication between them. Think of it like upgrading your computer's microprocessor from a slow, old processor to the latest lighting fast processor. The brain works better, faster and more efficiently.

Does Lucidal ® contain any stimulants?

Lucidal ® contains NO stimulants. Stimulants can cause the brain's neurons to fire excessively and, as a result, incur damage at the cellular level. Unlike some other brain enhancement products, the Lucidal ® ingredients work together to provide extra energy and alertness without the use of stimulants.

How can a product such as Bonexid ® that contains no calcium make my bones stronger?

Building healthy, strong bones for a lifetime takes a lot more than gulping down a handful of calcium pills. You must do all you can to build bone during adolescence and prevent the loss of bone as you get older and (if you are female) after you go through menopause. Eating the proper diet and including resistance exercise (weight training) several times per week are key parts of a bone-healthy lifestyle. Proper diet and exercise work well together because they help the body to more effectively use the calcium in your diet. Bonexid ® is so effective because it magnifies the body's own signals that keep calcium in bone - something that makes bones stronger and less likely to break.

How can Bonexid ® help reverse the impact of a bad diet on bone health?

The average Western diet contains foods that accelerate bone loss and cause degeneration at the cellular level. This is true even if you meet the recommended daily calcium intake. It is something that most doctors and health care professionals are not aware of. Bonexid ® is formulated to combat this destructive process. When the body is receiving the proper calcium-handling signals, you don't require excessive amounts of calcium to keep bones from breaking. Bonexid ® helps the body properly use the calcium you consume in both food and pill form. It also decreases how much is lost in the urine, where it can lead to the formation of kidney stones. So, Bonexid ® effectively partners with the calcium in your diet to ensure it is properly used and is not wasted or lost in the urine.

When should I take Bonexid ® ?

If you are female or have a family history of weak bones, a smoking history, a sedentary lifestyle, are white or of Asian descent, have had an eating disorder (anorexia or bulimia), are diabetic or are over 50 you are at risk for having bones that are more likely to break. There is also an increased risk of fracture following some types of chemotherapy or if you take medications called glucocorticoids (like prednisone or decadron). If any of these apply to you, it is important to formulate an effective program designed to improve bone health. Don't give up just because you are at risk - there is much that can be done. However, optimizing lifestyle factors (eating a healthy diet, doing resistance types of exercise, stopping smoking, avoiding excessive alcohol consumption and getting adequate vitamin D and vitamin K2) may still leave you at risk. If that's the case, or if you're not happy with your bone health, it makes sense to try Bonexid ® .

Has Bonexid ® been tested?

Yes, in a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical study that was reported in a peer-reviewed journal, Bonexid ® was shown to:
- enhance the body's use of calcium;
- decrease markers of bone breakdown; and
- increase bone formation.

How long should I take Bonexid ® ?

You should continue to take Bonexid ® until your bone health gets back to where it needs to be. Since it takes years to lose bone, it will take a while to reverse the situation. However, improving bone health slowly over time is much better than sitting idly by as bone continues to deteriorate.

Is Bonexid ® just for women?

No. Although women are at greater risk for weak bones, men are also at risk. And even teenagers are beginning to show signs of weak bones. Since it contains no hormones, you don't have to worry about those issues regardless of whether you are female or male.

How do I know Bonexid ® really works?

There are a number of nutritional products on the market that don't work - or worse, can be unhealthy for you. This is why we take pride in the fact that we have shown in an independent, human clinical trial (double-blinded, and randomized - the same design that medicines undergo) published in a peer-reviewed medical journal that Bonexid ® does what we say it does. This means that independent scientists conducted the human testing and other professionals evaluated the quality of the research and found it to be valid. McCleary Scientific stands behind Bonexid ® and believes you will be happy with the results.

What is Vitaloss ® ?

Vitaloss ® is a proprietary combination of nutritional ingredients designed to help you get to your weight-loss goals faster and safer. It is patented and has been tested in human clinical studies that document that Vitaloss ® is safe and has beneficial effects on weight loss.

How much and when should I take Vitaloss ® ?

For best results, take 3 capsules 30 minutes before meals 3 times a day.

How does Vitaloss ® work?

Vitaloss ® suppresses appetite and increases the rate at which the body burns calories, producing the weight loss benefits that have been documented in the Vitaloss ® clinical studies.

Does Vitaloss ® contain caffeine?

No, Vitaloss ® does not contain caffeine or anything that will make you feel jittery.

For how long should I take Vitaloss ® ?

It makes sense to take Vitaloss ® until you have reached your weight-loss goal or as long as needed to maintain it.

Will it hurt me to continue to take Vitaloss ® after I've reached my weight loss goals?

Not at all, many people take VitaLoss to help control how much they eat.
