Say “Yes” to Sprays and “No” to Pills!
Many people do not take vitamins simply because they can not 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.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 (see the image above) showing undissolved pills in the colon. This means that for every £50 you spend on nutritional pills, about £40-45 goes down the toilet.
Super Health sprays are the best solution for this problem. For the first time, natural nutrients can be delivered into the blood stream bypassing the human gastrointestinal tract and without all those extra inclusions (shellac, talc, waxes, colouring, etc.) associated with pills.
Our sprays offer a more effective way to get your vitamins and minerals daily. The key factor is absorption. All ingredients In sprays are absorbed quicker and more efficiently than in pills. Tiny droplets in a mist easily penetrate through tissue lining in the human mouth (called mucous membrane) and facilitate a high absorption up to 98%. Below you can find many other good reasons for the change from pills to our oral sprays.
Fillers and Coatings Inhibit Absorption
In his article “Liquid Vitamins: The Wave of The Future”, published in “Chiropractic Economics” magazine, David Friedman (DC,ND, a certified Doctor of Naturopathy and lecturer on nutrition) wrote the following striking points: .
“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 …”
“The reason 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”.
The image below is the X-ray snap which clearly demonstrates how supplements taken in tablets for the last three days have failed to disintegrated:
Absorption and Bioavailability: Super Health Sprays vs Tablets
Absorption and bioavailability (how quickly and how much of a substance reaches its target of action) in case of tablets can be affected by many factors. The following properties of pills hinder absorption the most:
- Additives: tablets/capsules consist of the drug (active ingredient) and additives (inactive ingredients). The latter group includes gelatin, stabilizers, dilutents and lubricants – they affects the speed of tablet disintegration and how quickly the drug is absorbed. If the tablet does not release the drug quickly enough, much of the drug is simply eliminated in the feces.
- Coating: tablets/capsules are usually coated with a resistant substance in order to prevent it from dissolving until it reaches the small intestine with the digestive enzymes there. However, the coatings do not always dissolve as intended therefore tablets or capsules may be passed intact in the feces, especially in older people.
- Competing Inhabitants: food and other drugs as well as digestive disorders affect drug absorption and bioavailability. For example, calcium supplements and high-fiber foods may bind with a drug that affects absorption of such drug.
- Rapid Deterioration: the drug and nutrients in pills quickly deteriorate due to oxidation and the light – the pills become ineffective or harmful if stored improperly or kept too long. So, tablets/pills must be stored in a dry, cool or dark place and strictly follow directions and expiration dates for pills at all times.
Benefits of Super Health Sprays:
- Rapid and effective adsorption (95-98%) through the mouth tissues called the buccal mucosa.
- No gastric degradation.
- Easy to take: perfect for those who dislike swallowing pills.
- Convenient: fits easily in your pocket.
- No dilution of vitamins and minerals in the gastrointestinal tract.
- Your supplements are instantly available: no water is required to administer your intake.
- Take your supplements at any time: no need to wait “before or after” your meal.
- Tubes provide a closed, oxygen-free, safe storage: no deterioration of vitamins and minerals caused by light or air oxidation.
What makes a multivitamin tablets a waste of money?
The truth is that, more than likely, your multivitamin tablets is probably not doing you much good at all.
Here are 2 common issues attached to taking vitamins in tablet form.
Issue 1 – Problem with 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/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 commercially available multivitamins reveals, more than 50 percent of tables failed to get disintegrated on time during the tests.
What is likely to contribute to the poor disintegration rates for tablets and capsules is that supplements produced in tables contain binders and fillers used in order to make the ingredients stick together in a convenient size – that also increases the productivity of tablets/capsules manufacturing machines.
Issue 4 – Problems with taking tablets
Most multivitamin tablets have a shiny suffice. 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.
