Liquid Vitamins

Many nutritionists believe people should take liquid vitamins instead of tablets. Liquids are more easily digested than solids. In fact, some studies actually suggest that people who take solid vitamin pills only digest ten percent of what they swallow. If this is true, then people who take pills containing 100 percent of their recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin D, for example, really only absorb ten percent of their RDA.

This makes pills an incredibly inefficient way to get vitamins and minerals, not only in terms of health, but also financially. People pay for the full benefits of these nutrients, but their bodies just don't absorb all of it. Moreover, not all pills completely break up in people's stomachs. Little chunks remain intact, and as they make their way through the excretion system, they can get stuck in the intestines or colon.

Many solid pills contain binding agents that pack vitamins and minerals together in order to form pills. These chemicals are often non-digestible. At best, the excretion system expels them from the body. At worst, they are absorbed into people's systems.

The Liquid Vitamin Solution

People can avoid these side effects by taking liquid vitamin solutions. People who take liquid vitamins can rest assured that they get what they pay for, because all the nutrients enter the body. In addition, they are absorbed much faster than solid pills. Many people mix these solutions with juice or water.
