Liquid vitamins are becoming once again very popular. This is likely because they are easy to take easy to swallow and oftentimes very complete. The best liquid vitamins will provide the full range of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, to name a few. Back over 100 years ago liquid supplements, then called tonics, were all the rage. Unfortunately many of those contained nothing but cheap alcohol and a few herbs, but the concept of liquid supplements was born.
When we address the concept of liquid vitamins we can then see how easily this delivery system could be applied to men’s vitamins as well as the best vitamins for women. Recently we are beginning to see children’s liquid vitamins appear on the marketplace. By ensuring that the supplement meets our concept of full-spectrum nutrition we can then add sufficient nutrients to meet even more specific needs such as high energy, appetite control, and even mood support. Healthy aging supplements would also include amino acids and especially antioxidants, which play a key role in preventing free radical damage and premature aging. In April we will have information about joint supplements and make sure to listen to these amazing testimonials. Check out all of Dr Whiting’s Chronic Disease Special Reports.
