Vitamins and minerals enter our system through the food we eat. In addition to our food intake, vitamin supplements are now available to enhance any deficiency. To understand better, an analysis of advantages of liquid vitamins over its disadvantages is done below.
Better or Easier Absorption for Kids
Vitamins in liquid form taste worse as compared o vitamins in chewable, flavored tablet forms. But kids and adults have problems with choking, breathing and swallowing tablets as compared to liquid vitamins. The liquid form is very easily absorbed by the system as compared to the tablets.
Liquid Vitamins are More Effective
Vitamins, in liquid form are easily assimilated into the blood stream and the absorption rate is 90-98%. Since vitamins are more concentrated in liquid form than the tablets/pills a higher bio-activity and greater therapeutic benefits are derived.
The Link Between Antioxidants and Liquid Vitamins.
Liquid vitamins contain antioxidants mainly vitamins A, C and E. Liquid vitamins must contain antioxidants A C and E which are essential since they are not produced by the body and these antioxidants fight against oxidation effect in our system. These antioxidants are the best fighters against cancer. Without these antioxidants our body will be weak and less healthy.
Liquid Vitamins vs Digestive Acids
The benefits of liquid vitamins is not acknowledged by people is due to the belief that the digestive acids destroy any vitamin or mineral which it doesn’t recognize as part of digestive process. The opposite, in fact is true. Our digestive system actually prefers liquid vitamins for better absorption as compared to tablets capsules.
Vitamin tablets capsules will have to be digested completely before the body is benefitted. It must be broken into absorbable nutrients or else only 30% would be absorbed by the body. But in the case of liquid form the absorption is around 90% and it can be directly absorbed by the body.
One should properly understand that digestion does not mainly function to destroy vitamins and minerals but rather transform them into substances which can improve the general well being of the body.
Liquid Vitamins; Toxic or not?
Another querry is with regard to the colloidal minerals found in liquid vitamins. Are they harmful or not?
The fact is that even plants and fruits contain such minerals. Apple contains 3-5 of aluminium as it is one of the abundant elements contained on the surface of the Earth. But apple is not considered harmful to human body. The opposite fact is that ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’.
The case of liquid vitamins is also of similar nature. If the liquid contains small amount of colloidal mineral it will by no means harm the body. These are all found naturally and cannot be avoided totally.
You Have a Choice
The choice of taking liquid vitamin supplements or vitamin supplements in tablet/capsule form is left to the individual. The fact remains that the body should benefit from the supplements irrespective of the form in which it is taken.
