Vitamin absorption is something that anyone taking supplements should pay special attention to.
Not only will it affect the usefulness of the vitamins being consumed, it will also result in either no benefits or many benefits.
As we have heard many times now, liquid vitamins claim there products are the best because people who take tablet form just excrete them. This is good marketing, and comes down to a little bit of hype; however, it is partly true.
Let?s delve a little deeper in to some facts.
Many tablet vitamins are very cheap, mass produced and sold in supermarkets across the world. You?ve probably seen them time and time again. When you go shopping to your local store you will likely come across them in multivitamins etc. They are also made with the cheapest excipients ? This is what puts the ingredients together, resulting in tablet form.
Because of this, the nutrients are mostly released in the stomach and destroyed by stomach acids.
In the case of these types of supplements, a large percentage will simply be wasted when you go to the toilet.
On the other hand however, some quality companies dedicated to optimising health use highly sophisticated supplements. Sometimes known as nutraceuticals. These companies will use very expensive all natural potent ingredients and exciients.
Some of these supplements have highly sophisticated delivery systems. This allows the nutrients to enter the blood stream for the most effective consumption.
The best delivery system for vitamin absorption and the other nutrients in the tablet is called enteric coating.
What makes this so effective?
Many powerful nutrients cannot be taken as supplements without being destroyed by the stomach acids; enteric coating protects the tablet and therefore the nutrients from being destroyed by stomach acids.
So it?s not just about vitamin absorption, it?s about all the nutrients you may take in a supplement. Especially the more sophisticated ones that have nutrients much more powerful and expensive than just vitamins. Vitamins tend to be weak antioxidants.
Liquid vitamins cannot be delivered in this way. To learn more about the supplement we personally use with excellent results, be sure to check out our site at the end of the article.
