The Guide To Liquid Multivitamins

Get the most out of your multivitamin by taking it in a liquid form; your body will absorb more of the vitamins it needs. Read on about the advantages of liquid vitamins over pills, capsules and tablets.

Today more than ever, with our busy schedules coupled with our poor eating habits, we need to take a variety of vitamins. Not only that, but studies have shown that much of the soil that our vegetables are grown in is nearly depleted of nutrients. This means that even if we eat five vegetables and five fruits every day, we are still not getting as many vitamins as we should be.

Taking vitamin supplements can help our bodies ward off colds and flu, strengthen our coronary systems, help build strong bones and muscles, promote circulation, and much, much more.

Basically, vitamins come in pill or in liquid form. Vitamin pills are oftentimes hard to swallow, especially for the elderly or small children. There are chewable ones, such as Vitamin C, but they are hard to chew and they taste bitter besides.

Most importantly, since our bodies have to break down tablets and capsules through our digestive systems, we are only able to absorb an estimated ten percent of the supplement. That means if you take the recommended daily amount of Vitamins C, E, A, and D, that you'll only end up actually getting ten per cent of them every day.

Liquid multivitamins, on the other hand, can help you get the important vitamins you need without popping hard-to-swallow tablets or capsules. And you can choose the type of liquid multivitamin that your body needs the most. That means that you can compare the ingredients in a liquid multivitamin and decide which vitamins, minerals, and extracts you need to take every day to help make your body strong and healthy.

Studies show that your body will absorb up to ninety five per cent of the vitamins it needs every day. The reason for this increase in absorption is because liquid vitamins don't have to be broken down in the digestive system first. Once they are taken, they are absorbed into your blood stream. From there, they are passed through your entire body.

If you're still not convinced about how difficult it is for your body to break down vitamin tablets and capsules, try an experiment and prove it to yourself. Place a multivitamin in a glass of tap water. It will take quite awhile for it to completely dissolve.

Liquid multivitamins have yet another advantage over vitamin pills: capsules and tablets often contain fillers, starches, and other ingredients that your body doesn't need. Rather, these ingredients are necessary in order to manufacture the pill. They have nothing to do with your health.

Now that you understand the benefits of liquid multivitamins, how do you decide which one to take every day? That decision will be entirely up to you. There are many brands and formulas on store shelves today. Many of them contain essential vitamins such as A, C, D, and E. And, many of them also contain minerals such as Iron, Calcium, Niacin, Thiamin, Magnesium, and more.

Some liquid multivitamins also contain plant extracts. These can include vegetables, fruits and herbs. Vegetables and fruits contain vitamins, acids, and enzymes that our bodies need. Herbs such as Aloe Vera, for example, can help our digestive systems, et cetera.

In order to decide which liquid multivitamin is the best one for you, you should talk to your doctor or healthcare professional. He or she will be able to help you decide what vitamins and minerals you need every day. They might also recommend a certain herb that you need to take.

For your health, exercise, eat right, and take a liquid multivitamin every day!
