Liquid Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamins and minerals can be absorbed by the body either through the food that we eat or through the taking of
supplements. There are two different methods of taking vitamin supplements
which are either as a liquid vitamins and minerals or in the more traditional tablet or capsule form. There is some
discussion as to whether the advantages of taking liquid vitamins and minerals outweigh the disadvantages, assuming
that there are any.
Liquid Vitamins are More Effective
Because of their form, liquid vitamins can be assimilated immediately into the blood stream for a more systemic
administration of the vitamin and its average absorption rate is approximately 90 to 98%. It is also three to five
times more concentrated than vitamin tablets which leads to a higher bio-activity and greater therapeutic
Liquid Vitamins and Antioxidants
Have you ever wondered whether or not liquid vitamins contained oxidants as well? Vitamins A, C and E are
examples of antioxidants and they are commonly found in multivitamin supplement tablets but what about liquid
Liquid vitamins must in fact contain such antioxidants or they will prove to be ineffective compared to other
vitamins. Remember that the most important of all antioxidants are Vitamins A, C and E which are not internally
produced by the human body. Consequently, they must be a regular fixture in our diet.
Antioxidants are our best defense against various diseases and without them, we are basically weaker and less
Liquid Vitamins and Colloidal Minerals
Another problem cited with liquid vitamins is the amount of colloidal minerals they contain. Colloidal minerals
are those minerals found in plants as opposed to the soil and are sometimes termed living minerals.
All plants and fruits contain a trace of colloidal minerals which are naturally occurring. For instance, apples
contain between 3 and 5 mg of aluminum as it is one of the most abundant elements that can be found in 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.
And so it must be with liquid vitamins as well. Containing a slight amount of colloidal mineral does not mean
that it is bad for our health. After all colloidal minerals are naturally occurring elements and can not therefore
Liquid Vitamins and Digestive Acids
One reason why people refuse to acknowledge the benefits of liquid vitamins is because of the supposed
destruction by digestive acids of any vitamin or mineral that it does not recognize as part of the process of
digestion. The opposite is, in fact 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 absorbable nutrients otherwise only around thirty percent of it will be absorbed by the human body.
Liquid vitamins however 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 important to remember that digestion does not mainly function to destroy vitamins and minerals but rather
to transform them into substances it can use to improve the general constitution of the body.
At the end of the day, however, it is still up to the individual whether or not to take vitamin supplements in
liquid or solid form. What really matters is what you prefer and which will ultimately work best for you.
