Liquid Consumption May Mean Better Absorption

A Medicare Europe article presents some interesting findings regarding liquids versus pills. Medical studies have shown that liquid extracts have a faster rate of absorption, higher rates of optimization and are easier to digest. In regards to swallowing, liquids may have a big advantage over tablets. Most people appear to have more trouble swallowing certain pills, particularly the elderly and young children. Generally speaking, liquid nutrients are broken down and consumed even more readily. Additionally, liquids have been shown to be consumed more thoroughly and more rapidly than most capsules and tablets.

Approximately 85 to 90 percent of nutrients are absorbed in liquid supplements in about 25 seconds.

Compare that to the hours it can take for the body to digest pill nutrients. In fact, it has been shown that only about 10 to 20 percent of nutrients are fully absorbed in tablets. The National Advisory Board reports that 100 mg taken as a tablet results in a blood concentration of just 8.3 mg or 8.3 percent. A pilot study testing the bioavailability and absorption levels in normal human subjects for two vitamin B-12 preparations found that absorption levels were substantially improved when dosing was in liquid form versus solid form.
