The active ingredients will support the maintenance of biologically healthy structures only if used regularly because our body cannot store most of the nutrients with which it is supplied over the length of time. A regular supply of nutrients is therefore particularly important, and we recommend that you take Merz Spezial products consistently over a prolonged period of time.

No. Just skip the forgotten intake and go ahead as usual.
