While our digestive system seems better equipped to absorb liquid vitamins and minerals rather than those in tablet or capsule form, you may wish to make some comparisons before you decide which is better for you.

Here are some advantages of liquid vitamins:

·         They absorb more quickly.  A liquid vitamin-mineral product will get into your system within minutes after consuming it, whereas tablets and capsules could take between 2 and 6 hours.

·         They absorb more completely.   It is said that a liquid vitamin-mineral product has from 85%, even up to 98% absorbency.  Many of the vitamin pills sold on the market have only 10 to 30% absorbency.  The cheaper over the counter vitamin pills would generally be less absorbent than your higher priced and pharmaceutical grades.

·         They can actually taste good.  This, of course, depends on the manufacturer.  Some liquid vitamins might taste pretty bad, too.  But there are good-tasting ones available.

·         It is easier to put a lot of beneficial ingredients in a liquid product than in a tablet or capsule.   For example, a good liquid-vitamin mineral can contain many vitamins, phytonutrients, herbs, trace minerals, antioxidants and more.  Try to put all that into a tablet or capsule and you either will end up with a very large, hard-to-swallow pill or perhaps, need to take several pills everyday.

So, what are the disadvantages to liquid vitamins?  Actually I can only think of a couple drawbacks to a liquid vitamin supplement.  One drawback is that it does weigh more.  Thus, the shipping of the product to you will be more than having pills sent to you.  Also, if you travel a lot, you may want to have a small container to put it in. 

What?  You don’t even take a vitamin supplement?  Consider the following.  Taking a good liquid vitamin-mineral supplement can provide numerous benefits to your health.  It could help your immune system, which means you may have fewer sick days and be less likely to develop any diseases.  Other possible benefits include:  increasing energy, helping you to combat stress, help for your heart, memory, vision, digestion, and bones.  So, if you don’t already take a really good vitamin-mineral supplement, I hope you will now consider doing it.

Personally, one of the things I like best about the liquid vitamin I take, is that I don’t have to swallow a bunch of pills!  If you’ve ever had difficulty swallowing vitamin tablets, then you too, will surely appreciate getting your vitamins in liquid form.
