Benefits of Liquid Vitamins

One of the main benefits of liquid vitamins, apart from the fact that some people find them easier to take, is the fact they are absorbed more easily by the body. They get assimilated into the blood stream immediately and have a considerably higher rate of absorption than pills and capsules.

Generally the strength of the ingredients in liquid vitamins are up to five times more concentrated that those in pills, so while you might be paying more for them you will also be getting more benefits from taking them rather than pills.

Liquid VitaminsThe main problem with vitamin pills or tablets is the fact that they have to be digested and broken down into absorbable nutrients before they are of any benefit to you.

In this process of digestion a large percentage of the nutrients are lost with only the balance getting absorbed.

Liquid vitamins offer a better solution of digestion with up to three times the nutrient value being absorbed as compared to a similar product as a pill.

The decision on what is best for you can be determined from looking at all the factors of ease of use, cost and quality of the nutrients that will actually get absorbed and the products that are available and their nutritional values.

While liquid vitamins might appear to be more expensive you can take them in smaller quantities and still get better results than you would with tablets.

Often liquid vitamins have an unpleasant taste so it might be a good idea to have something else to eat or drink after taking them to make the experience a little more palatable.

Contrary to popular belief that our digestive system will render liquid vitamins ineffective the opposite has proven to be true. The body assimilates liquid vitamins better than pills, capsules and tablets. HealthBuy.com has good selection of vitamins and supplements.

    The only benefit of a liquid vitamin that I can think of would be for people who don’t want to swallow a pill and need more of a nutrient than they can reasonably get from their diet. I think it would be a great idea to replace my giant Omega 3/6 horse-size pills.

    However, while the faster liquid absorption rate mentioned in the article is true of calories (the majority of which are absorbed from the stomach), the human body absorbs most nutrients from the intestines. That’s because we’ve evolved to get our nutrients from food and that requires more digestion processing to pull them out. So pill or liquid, your body would take about the same amount of time to process it — your stomach isn’t going to grab it and it’s all liquid by the time it hits your intestines. As for the higher concentration, one could take less, but otherwise that may not be a good idea. We should all use caution and educate ourselves if we’re thinking of taking more than the USRDA. Taking more than your body needs of a nutrient is usually just a waste of money — you will excrete most of them. But for some nutrients it is harmful to take them to excess. Scary harmful in some cases.

      I am not suggesting more dosage, in fact the reverse is true – you do not need to take bigger dosage since the vitamins in liquid form is more potent. Liquid Vitamins does has its disadvantages and thanks for your wonderful comments.

    Liquid vitamins are seen as an alternative for people who find pills disagreeable for any reason like taste, difficult to swallow and digest. This is true especially in the case of old people and children, for whom liquid vitamins are available in a variety of flavors.

    The fact is that vitamin pills are still prescribed more regularly by doctors as compared to liquid vitamins. I personally prefer taking them in pill form as well.

    Liquid vitamins are not bad but there is no breakthrough or miracle involved with them.The disadvantage of liquid vitamins is that the nutrients get destroyed when they come in contact with the stomach acids before they can reach the upper intestines where the absorption best happens. Liquid vitamins can not carry enzymes in a viable form for more than a day which reduces their potency as compared to pills which come with preservatives and an enteric coating.

      Surya – Right about liquid vitamins not being to carry enzymes in a viable form. I am not sure about nutrients getting destroyed in the stomach, I haven’t come across this fact in any of my readings. If you know where you read it, can you post the source?
