Do Liquid Multivitamins + Minerals Work Better?
The supplement industry is everchanging and for the average consumer, it can be hard to keep up with the most effective way to get the nutrients you need. At the end of the day, the answer is simple. The consumer will choose the product they can fit into their lifestyle and that they can feel the difference when taking it.
Nutrient absorption is extremely important and achievable for liquid supplement manufacturing and powder supplement manufacturing. With that said, you may have to work just a little bit harder to achieve ultimate bioavailability for a powder supplement vs. a liquid supplement.
Absorbing Liquid Supplements
Liquid supplements are going to enter directly into the bloodstream when taken. Other capsule or tablet counterparts will have to work their way through the digestive system potentially losing important nutrients along the way. Further, the process of digestion may be too slow leading to excretion of important vitamins and minerals you meant to absorb. Liquid supplements do not have to go through this process – they are utilized immediately within the body.
Serving Liquid Supplements
Liquids tend to be easier to swallow for all age groups, young and old. If something is easier to take, then the likelihood is that you will take it more. Also, if your customers are on a special program where they require specific amounts of nutrients, liquids will be easier to correctly serve yourself the right amount.
Ingredients in Liquids vs Powders
The manufacturing equipment, length of shelf-life needed and type of active ingredients in your product are all important considerations when formulating a product. For powder or tablet supplements, these factors could lead to the ‘Other Ingredients’ becoming a long list of not-so-good-for-you fillers. Whereas liquid supplements tend to need fewer extra ingredients to create a finished product.
Mineralife Nutraceuticals specializes in finding science-backed solutions for both liquid and powder supplements, ensuring no unnecessary fillers or additives are in either type of supplement. They also have 11+ years of experience developing absorption techniques for liquid and powder supplements.
So, do liquid multivitamins + minerals work better?
The answer is it depends.
It will depend on who you choose to work with on your custom supplement and if they will guide you towards a highly effective, bioavailable formula or not.
