Default Are Liquid Multis/Minerals Better Than Pill Form?

Are there any pros and cons?


Is either really better?

Question 2: If it says WholeFood, does that make it better? or is that just another buzz word they throw in?

I don't know, but I always assumed the liquids were better absorbed in the body, but they were always expensive too, which made me not buy them.

For years now I've been using capsules over tablets, especially since I read that tablets sometimes are eliminated from the body without even being fully dissolved.

I have trouble swallowing any pills lately, so I just open my capsules and add a few other things to an orange juice mixture.

Haha. GMTA. (great minds think alike) I too have decided to skip the very expensive liquids and just buy the pills/capsules.
Wonder if Superman (forgot his name) knows about the WholeFoods label?

I think "wholefood" means that the minerals were sourced from something organic. I think that is a good thing. I'm not really sure it makes a difference. After all, a mineral doesn't change its molecular structure depending upon where it grew up.

I like capsules better than liquid, only because of convenience. I don't know what digestion means, when it comes to minerals and liquid. As soon as you take a mineral, the body produces enzymes and acid to further dissolve it. Vitamins help to move the mineral (metal) into certain body parts. For example, vitamin D controls the use of calcium. Vitamin C controls the use of iron. Stomach acid controls the process as well. So beware of too much alkaline.

Thanks JF. So it does seem that it might just be a hot buzz word for marketing.
Albeit they are probably still good.
