The most efficient and healthiest way to get balanced nutrition is to take a small amount of ingredients in a liquid form with a good balance of your daily needs using the RDA for moderation
It is all about 'Absorption' and the ability of supplements to enter the blood cells. If they cannot enter your blood cells then you are throwing your money away!
The only way to get maximum absorption for your health and your pocket is to be aware of the following:
LIQUID...Is the only way to get maximum absorption because the absorption rate of tablets is poor and in many cases they pass right through your body, so you are literally throwing your money away. Tablets have poor absorption because they have:
BALANCE & MODERATION... We are all different and there is no such thing as "one size fits all" when it comes to our individual needs. We use the RDA's to supplement your daily needs. (We all eat differently so our intake of nutrition varies from person to person.) Many companies are supplying supplements with Mega Doses' that can have unintended consequences by reducing the efficiency of other ingredients.
OVERDOSING... Many food products are being fortified with vitamins and you could be overdosing on your Fat Soluble' vitamins (A, D, E & K) which can be dangerous. Mega doses are not the answer!
ALLERGIC REACTION... Throwing all your supplements into 1 bottle or tablet doesn't work because you may be allergic (or the taste is awful) to one ingredient and this prevents you from taking it no matter how good you think it is.
EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT... We separate our minerals and vitamins, etc because we are all different. (Some people need more minerals than vitamins and some vice versa.) This system gives you a 'flexible' approach to your nutritional needs and allows you to adjust your intake depending upon your current health condition.
You can do a quick test at home by immersing your tablets in vinegar and check to see if it starts to breakdown within 30 minutes. Here is a capsule that has been in vinegar for 12 hours and it still has not released any of its ingredients!
Liquid vitamins are more efficient than tablets/capsules because of the higher absorption rate. Most vitamin suppliers use synthetic vitamins simply for ease of manufacturing, greater shelf life and because they are cheap. The most efficient and healthiest way to get balanced nutrition is to take a small amount of natural ingredients in a liquid form with a good balance of your daily vitamin needs using the RDA for moderation.
