Can You Drink Your Way To Good Health?

Many years ago I became convinced of the need to take vitamin and mineral supplements. Although I tried to eat healthy meals, mixing salads, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains as wisely as I could, numerous studies pointed out the need to add nutritional supplements to my diet.

Major Study

The major study that caught my attention most strongly was the 1977-1978 USDA National Food Consumption Survey (Crocetti and Guthrie, 1982). This study surveyed the 3-day dietary records of over 21,500 individuals. Among other findings the study showed that not one person consumed 100% of the Recommended Daily Allowance for the top ten nutrients.

That was a rather shocking finding. Not one single person! I prided myself in eating well, but I decided that it would be a good idea to supplement my meals with additional vitamins and minerals.

Taking Tablets

I started out by taking a single multivitamin daily. Then, over the years I added additional tablets of antioxidants, namely vitamin C and vitamin E. In more recent years I added calcium tablets and B vitamin tablets to my routine. As you can guess, the result was that I was taking 5 tablets of supplements twice a day.

Does that sound familiar to you? That's a lot of tablets to swallow. Taking that many tablets each day was never pleasant for me. Many times I wished that there was an easier way to take the supplements that I felt I needed.

Liquid Supplements

Then a friend introduced me to a nutritional supplement that I could drink. Now that made sense. A good, potent liquid nutritional was certainly much easier and much tastier than a handful of tablets.

The convenience and good taste of the liquid was enough to convince me to abandon the tablet delivery system. But I learned further that the liquid form of the vitamins and minerals was more apt to be easily absorbed by my body than were the old tablets.

Absorption

Unfortunately tablets do not always digest fully in the stomach. Sometimes they only digest partially as they pass through the digestive system which allows only part of their potency to be absorbed by the cells. In fact, the Physician's Desk Reference, a highly respected reference book, once reported that the absorbency of vitamin tablets can be as low as 10%. What that means is that very little of the available nutrients are actually utilized by the body and its cells.

By contrast, vitamins and minerals in a liquid form can be absorbed by the body's cells at a much higher rate. As high as 95%. The liquid is more easily digested and absorbed by the digestive system than tablets are. Further, the absorbency of the liquid vitamins starts at the tongue and beneath the tongue. This sublingual delivery helps to get the nutritional benefit to the cells much faster.

How does this work? Take nitroglycerin for example. Nitroglycerin is effective for combating anginal chest pains associated with heart disease. An effective way to deliver the nitroglycerin is to place it beneath the tongue at the first sign of chest pain. This sublingual delivery gets the nitroglycerin into the bloodstream and to the chest pain much faster than it would if it had to be swallowed, digested, and absorbed into the bloodstream through the digestive system.

Similarly, vitamins and minerals will absorb into the bloodstream and to the cells much faster in liquid or spray form. For example, vitamin B-12 is an important vitamin, but as we get older we lose the stomach secretions necessary to digest and absorb the vitamin through the normal digestive process. The solution to the problem is to deliver vitamin B-12 in either a spray or a sublingual form. That way the potency of the vitamin is delivered quickly to the cells and the digestive system is bypassed.

How To Choose

Taste really counts. If it doesn't taste good, you won't be likely to take the supplement on a regular basis. If it tastes good, you will. So will your children.

There are numerous liquid nutritional supplements available on the market. Typical flavors include orange-mango, cherry, and cranberry among others. My personal favorite is a rich cranberry concentrate. Not only does the taste make my mouth water, but it is good to know that cranberries have properties that help to cleanse and to remove toxins from the urinary tract.

A good liquid nutritional supplement should use aloe vera as its base rather than water. Liquid aloe vera contains more than 39 essential vitamins and minerals and all 23 amino acids. Further, liquid aloe vera is a powerful healer. It is one of the best stomach and intestine cleansers known. And it is a wonderful oxygenator, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory.

Most good liquid nutritional supplements will utilize sea vegetation as its source of vitamins and minerals. A good mix of sea vegetation will contain an important natural balance of all of the essential vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and enzymes. The concept of balance is very important here, because the body's cells will utilize the nutrients much more efficiently if they are supplied in a balance normally found in nature. Further, sea vegetation can be harvested from cold, pure seawater that is free of contaminants. The body's cells will appreciate that.

Personal Recommendation

I have sampled numerous liquid supplements and I am pleased to report that liquid supplements have grown in popularity and improved in taste and effectiveness during the past few years.

Seasilver is my personal favorite liquid nutritional and I recommend it highly to everyone. Seasilver has adopted the highest manufacturing standards and has found a blend of sea vegetation, aloe vera, and several other impressive and effective ingredients that form an outstanding foundational health supplement. And it has the great cranberry/cherry taste that I prefer. The result is that Seasilver is a powerful nutritional supplement that provides the body with nourishment at the cellular level.

Answer To The Question

So, the answer to the question originally asked is that yes you can drink your way to good health. If you have ever tired of consuming vitamin tablets or if you've ever wondered about the potency of artificially formulated tablets, you owe it to yourself to try a good liquid nutritional supplement. Try a bottle or two. Here's to your good health.
