Vitamins and minerals, a key and critical component to us being able to remain healthy, are often viewed as something rather nasty and unpalatable. Probably because we were often forced as children to swallow dry capsules or chug some cod liver oil.
But fear not. If you want to stay healthy, live longer and enjoy life it is simple and easy with liquid vitamins. Luckily for us vitamins and minerals can be absorbed by the body in a number of ways.
They first enter our body through the food we eat or we can take them as supplements to increase the levels of specific vitamins and minerals. For me, rather than the body having to slowly absorb the nutrients from solid foods the best plus quickest way, and I think the tastiest, is taking them in liquid form.
Do the advantages of liquid vitamins far outweigh its disadvantages?
Stay Healthy, Live Longer, Enjoy Life With Liquid Vitamins
Better or Easier Absorption for Kids
Although to children, the liquid vitamins may taste nastier than the mass produced “vita-candy” (vitamins in flavored, chew-able form), they are much healthier and far easier to absorb.
While they may think a liquid vitamin from a health store is less appetizing don’t forget the simple truth. The majority of what we need in relation to vitamins and minerals comes from our fruits and veges. Get that blender blitzing and help your children stay healthy, live longer and enjoy life with liquid vitamins.
Liquid Vitamins are More Effective
Simply because of its form the liquid vitamins are absorbed and assimilated almost immediately into the blood stream. This leads to a more systemic and natural uptake of the vitamin. Incredibly, unlike many capsule based vitamins, the absorption rate for liquids averages 90 to 98%.
In liquid form the vitamins are actually three to five times more concentrated than those in tablet form which has far greater therapeutic benefits.
The Link between Antioxidants and Liquid Vitamins
Have you ever wondered about antioxidants and the levels contained within liquid vitamins? Vitamins E, C and A are antioxidants and commonly found in vitamin supplements but what about liquid vitamins?
As you would guess . the answer is a resounding YES.
In fact liquid vitamins contain large quantities of these vitamin/antioxidants. You will probably know that some of the most important vitamins , those that we require on a daily basis to stay healthy and enjoy optimal well being, are also antioxidants. These antioxidants actually rely on liquid vitamin in order to pass on their health giving benefits.
Vitamins A, C and E are not produced by the body, nor can the body synthesis anything similar so they must be a regular fixture in our diet.
Antioxidants are hugely important and act as the body’s main defense against the effects of oxidation. Antioxidants are believed to be a major factor in the prevention of cancer and in general day to day terms they, alongside liquid vitamins, keep us healthier, stronger and happier!
Liquid Vitamins versus Digestive Acids
There are many who continue to doubt the benefits of a liquid vitamin regime. This is due to the belief that the stomach’s digestive acids destroy and degrade the vitamin or mineral before it is able to be absorbed.
Some say this is due simply to the strength of the digestive acids, others that the vitamin and minerals, when consumed in larger quantities are regarded by the body as “foreign” and therefore not part of what is expected within the process of digestion so deliberately destroyed by our bodies natural protection mechanism.
The opposite is, in fact true.
Our digestive system is not that attack prone. And our digestive system, being part of our body, is well able to recognise what is and isn’t natural and there to help us stay healthy.
In fact research has shown that while not 100% of the liquid vitamin intake is absorbed and utilised, the human body is far more likely and able to absorb and benefit from the nutrition provided by liquid vitamins than it is from solid foods and vitamin supplements in capsule or pills form.
Solid vitamins must be digested before any benefit is passed along to our body. They must be broken down into tiny particles which are small enough that would enable them to be absorbed. It is thought that from the original solid form only 30% is actually absorbed and received as nutrients for the body.
Liquid vitamins on the other hand are by far the preferred delivery mechanism for our digestive system. There is no reliance or energy expenditure on breaking down the particles and so an estimated 90% of all nutrients taken in liquid form are utilised by the body.
Remember The Purpose Of Digestion.
Digestions function is not to destroy vitamins and minerals. It breaks down solids in order to transform them. To transform them into substances which allow us to stay healthy, live longer and enjoy life.
Liquid Vitamins: Toxic or Not?
There is also a school of thought that liquid vitamins contain an excess of colloidal minerals So are these harmful to our body or not?
In truth digesting colloidal minerals may be detrimental to health. But this is only when consumed in large doses, very large. The fact remains that colloidal minerals exist in nature and are found in many of the foods we eat.
Apples, for example, contain 3-5 mg of aluminum, however no one implies or states that apples are detrimental to health. We are far more likely to hear that eating an apple a day keeps the doctor away…or was it a cruel school yard trick to get rid of the teacher….
Most nutritionists and medical practitioners state that a similar view be taken in regard colloidal mineral levels in liquid vitamins.
No one denies the existence of colloidal mineral traces within the liquid vitamins but we must be sensible and assume that it can be no more detrimental to our health than it would be if we were consuming the fresh fruit or vegetables containing similar amounts.
Colloidal minerals are naturally occurring elements and, without processing all of our food groups, the consumption of them can not be avoided.
You Have a Choice
When it all boils down to it, the consumption of vitamins and minerals will always be a matter of personal preference. Certainly the absorption rate and effective uptake by the body of the liquid vitamins surpases that of their soild formcounterparts.
But the taking of vitamins and minerals in solid form is still much preferred and conducive to improved health compared to not taking vitamin supplements at all.
I hope that you will consider factoring in some liquid vitamins into your diet in order to stay healthy, live longer and enjoy life.
