Say 'NO' to Pills

Many people do not take vitamins simply because they cannot or do not like to swallow pills. Inconvenience is not just about unpleasantness of pills only. Pills are also harder for the body to digest and absorb. They  are a mixture of active ingredients and some excipients (fillers or additives) to prolong shelf life and to prevent disintegration of the active ingredients on exposure to  light and air. In fact, as low as 10-12% of the nutrients taken in pill form actually make it to the cellular level. This is verified by Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR) on page 1542. (The PDR is considered to be the “medical Bible”). This problem is also illustrated by X-ray showing undissolved pills in the colon. This means that for every £50 you spend on nutritional pills, about £40-45 goes down the toilet.

Problem: Absorption of Tablets

For your body to absorb vitamins and minerals packed in tablets (pills) they must be released into the body very quickly. However, this process is usually delayed and complicated by the fact that the gastrointestinal tract is lined with epithelial cells. So, a tablet or pill must permeate through these cells in order to be absorbed into the circulatory system. This means that the pills must disintegrate within twenty-minutes — the time necessary for absorption to be effective. At the same time, as recent studies on available multivitamins reveals, more than 50 percent of tables failed to get disintegrated on time during the tests.

What is a source of this problem?

Most multivitamin tablets have a shiny surface. That is because tablets manufacturers coat their multivitamins with wax, shellac to prevent their against the quick oxidation and the moisture and maintain their longer shelf life. While this may perfect sense for the manufacturers, it is not good for your health. In particular, for individuals with specific conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, hiatal hernias and diverticulitis. Taking their supplements in a pill or capsule form is very difficult for them. Those who have undergone bariatric surgery have the same issue because the coating practice reduces the solubility of a multivitamin tables. In fact, as a Harris survey shows, over 40% of people has a hard time swallowing tablets. Most of these people do not take any supplements in tablet forms at all.

Questions and Answers

How serious is the problem with pills?

In his article “Liquid Vitamins: The Wave of The Future”, published in “Chiropeactic Economics” magazine, David Friedman DC, ND, a certified Doctor of Naturopathy  wrote:  “I did some research of my own. I found in Tacoma Washington, 250,000 pounds of undigested vitamin and mineral pills are pulled out of the sewers every six weeks … some of them with the brand names still readable …” Doctor Friedman explains that this is due to “the high metallic content of these pills… which our bodies were not designed to digest. Even those pills listed as “all natural” often have added fillers and coatings that inhibit absorption”.

What can be a solution?

Super Health sprays are the best alternative. They provide a more effective way to get your vitamins and minerals daily. The key factor is absorption.  A mist of tiny droplets easily penetrate through tissue lining in the human mouth (called mucous membrane). This way all ingredients are absorbed quicker and more efficiently than in pills. Consequently absorption goes up to 98%.  This is because  all nutrients are delivered into the blood stream bypassing a gastrointestinal tract and causing no harm to your body with all those extra inclusions  associated with pills (e.g. shellac, talc, waxes, colouring, etc.) .

What will you get with sprays?

Rapid and effective absorption (95-98%) through the mouth tissues called the buccal mucosa. No need for dilution of nutrients (vitamins and minerals) in a gastrointestinal tract. No gastric degradation. Use your spray at any time: no need to wait “before or after” your meal.  Convenient: fits easily in your pocket. Easy to take: perfect for those who dislike swallowing pills. Your vitamin spray is instantly available: no water is needed for your intake. Non-plastic spray tubes provide  safe storage:  sealed, non-pressurized, oxygen-free  –  no deterioration of vitamins and minerals caused by plastic compounds, light or air oxidation.
