Vitamins are essential components of your nutrition. They stimulate metabolism processes, improve overall growth and reduce the incidence of various diseases. On diet, Vitamins
are taken either as oral pills or in liquid forms. Liquid Vitamins are the recent buzz of the health industry.
Of late, Liquid Vitamins
have gained immense popularity among health professionals, pharmaceuticals and dieters for their multi-purpose applications and considered to be “an innovative and versatile source of nutrition”. Studies confirm that the absorption rate of vitamins in liquid forms is as high as 98 percent as compared to an average of 10-20 percent in the pills. The blends of high-quality vitamins and minerals also act as powerful antioxidants which help in energizing the body and ensuring long-term health.
are easy digestible and get absorbed into the blood in less time. Unlike solid vitamin supplements, the liquid forms are usually gentler to the stomach. Sometimes children and elderly patients turn away from taking pills as they are difficult to swallow and taste bad too. For them, liquid vitamins are a “remarkable breakthrough”. They are available as multi-vitamin
mixtures or usually come in combination with essential minerals like Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium and other Plant-derived liquid or colloidal minerals.
mixes have faster effects on metabolism and usually cause less harms because of their high bio-available nature. Now, the doctors can prescribe multiple nutrients at the same time and the accuracy of dosage can be maintained as well.
also have a wide range of flavorful presence. This has an obvious advantage on children who have tendencies to skip medicine because of their strong smells and bitter tastes.
However, the efficacy of liquid vitamins is often challenged. It is claimed that the use of liquid vitamins is disadvantageous as they have lesser ‘shelf life’ as compared to the vitamin pills
which come with preservatives. This, in turn, reduces their potency on effective metabolism. Moreover, the aqueous extracts of minerals often pose threats on the safety related issues of these vitamin-mineral supplements.
Therefore, further research and advancement in the supplementary nutrition therapy and liquid technology are required to analyze the pros and cons of a more balanced, healthy and economical use of Liquid Vitamins
