Benefits of Liquid Vitamins

Vitamins and minerals can be absorbed by the body in a number of ways. They first enter our body through the food we eat. But we can also take vitamin supplements to increase the amount of important vitamins and minerals. There are different methods of taking vitamin supplements, and one of the most common methods is through its liquid form. Do the advantages of liquid vitamin supplementation make it better than a pill form?

Easier Absorption for Kids
Although liquid vitamins may taste worse than vitamins in flavored, chewable tablet forms, they are easier to absorb. There are numerous cases in which children have problems with choking, breathing and swallowing simply because of their inability to absorb medication or vitamins in pill or solid form.

This is also a problem for some adults who have lost the ability to eat normally, or are unable to digest anything that is not in liquid form.

Liquid Vitamins are More Effective
Liquid vitamins can be assimilated immediately into the blood stream, and its average absorption rate is approximately 90% to 98%. It is also three to five times more concentrated than vitamin pills and this can lead to higher bio-activity and greater therapeutic benefits.

The Link between Antioxidants and Liquid Vitamins
Liquid vitamins contain antioxidants, as well. Liquid vitamins must, in fact, contain antioxidants or they won't be effective compared to other vitamins. Remember, the most important of all antioxidants – Vitamins A, C and E – are not internally produced by the body, so they must be a regular fixture in our diet. Antioxidants are our main defense against the effects of the environment and certain chemicals that we are exposed to, or take in through our food. Antioxidants are also some of our best weapons against many forms of cancer. Without them, we are basically weaker and less healthy.

Liquid Vitamins versus Digestive Acids
One reason why people refuse to acknowledge the benefits of liquid vitamins is because of the possible destruction of any vitamin or mineral by digestive acids. However, this is not really true. Our digestive system actually prefers or is able to better absorb liquid vitamins and minerals rather than those made in pill or capsule form.

A vitamin pill or tablet has to be digested completely before it can benefit the human body. It must be broken down into smaller absorbable nutrients, or only up to thirty percent of it will be absorbed by the human body.

Liquid vitamins provide a better and easier solution for the digestive system. Because it does not depend in any way on mechanical digestion, an estimated 90% of it can be absorbed directly by the body.

It is vital to remember that digestion does not mainly function to destroy vitamins and minerals, but rather to transform them into substances it can be used to improve the general constitution of the body.

Liquid Vitamins: Toxic or Not?
Another problem posed is the amount of colloidal minerals found in liquid vitamins. Are they harmful?

In truth, even plants and fruits contain a trace of such minerals in them. Apples, for instance, contain 3-5 mg of aluminum, because it is one of the most abundant elements that can be found on the surface of the Earth. But do you hear anyone telling you that apples are dangerous to your health? On the contrary, what we are more likely to hear is that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Therefore, it must be the same with liquid vitamins as well. Containing a slight amount of any colloidal mineral doesn’t automatically mean it’s bad for our health. Colloidal minerals are, above all else, naturally occurring elements and therefore can not be avoided.

You Have a Choice
At the end of the day, however, it’s still up to you whether or not you wish to take vitamin supplements in liquid or solid form. What really matters is what you prefer and which vitamin will ultimately work better for you.
