Many health experts agree that the need for vitamin and mineral supplements is greater today than ever before. Most of our daily diet and lifestyle choices are not conducive to a long and healthy life. Furthermore, the majority of our food supply is over processed and contaminated, leading to a depleted nutrient content. Until now, nutritional supplements have been available mostly in the form of tablets and capsules.
What about the absorption of these types of supplements? In order for vitamins and minerals to help your body, they must be absorbed by your blood cells from the bloodstream after passing through your digestive tract. Some nutritional studies have questioned whether tablets and capsules dissolve rapidly and efficiently enough to be effective, or if they even fully dissolve!
Did you know that when you take multivitamin supplements in the conventional tablet or capsule form, your body only absorbs approximately 20% of the nutrients, and that figure may drop as you get older? So, what does that mean? It means that 80-90 % of the ingredients contained in pills and tablets are excreted or eliminated by your body along with other waste material.
Research has shown that our bodies have trouble breaking down and absorbing the processed and compacted nutrients contained in the pill and tablet forms. The Physician's Desk Reference contains research that proves that only a small amount of the nutrients in supplement pills are actually absorbed into the human body.
Here's the good news: The Physician's Desk Reference states that the absorption of supplements in liquid form is 98%! Liquid supplements work by getting absorbed directly into the bloodstream making them up to 10 times more effective! Other advantages of liquid supplements:
- gentler on the stomach
- easy to swallow
- easily digestible because the body does not need to break them down to absorb them
So, the key to nutrient effectiveness is directly related to not only the amount of active ingredients but also the rate of their delivery to your bloodstream. With pills and tablets, the rate of delivery is slowed down because your digestive system has to work to break down the binders, fillers, and other excipients used to hold active ingredients together. With gelatin capsules, your body has to the break down plasticizers, and beef and pork byproducts which are used as ingredients in most capsules. Surprisingly, artificial colors are often added to to ensure a constant color!
Because your digestive system becomes less effective with age and when your body is under stress, absorption of all of nutrients becomes more difficult. Research shows that after age 50, our body's utilization of essential nutrients is greatly reduced. So when nutrient absorption may be most critical, our bodies lack the ability to digest tablets and gelatin capsules.
