U.S. RDA isn't enough: good nutrition is impossible without taking vitamin supplements

If you're not taking nutritional supplements or eating superfoods like chlorella and spirulina, there's no way you're getting adequate nutrition. Today's foods are nutritionally depleted, and supplementing your diet is the only way to meet even the basic U.S. RDA requirements, not to mention going beyond them in order to achieve maximum health.

Truly, if you rely on foods alone, you'll never be as healthy as you could be, especially if you eat any junk foods, cow's milk, soft drinks, hydrogenated oils or other disease-causing foods and beverages.

Pam Mathis, a registered dietitian with offices in west Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch, uses vitamins in her practice and supports their use.

"It's obtained from the sun, so people who are outside don't need more of it," Mathis said.

But people in different climates or who are indoors all the time should take a supplement, she said.

Dietitians go over nutritional assessment, lifestyle and personal food choices.

Estimated costs for a dietitian's initial visit ranges from $80 to $100, Mathis said.

Other dietitians agree, including Susan Hall, a registered dietitian in Bradenton.

"Vitamins can't do everything; you need to eat healthy food to stay healthy," Hall said.


Absorption of Liquid Vitamins

"Liquids, aside from offering the obvious benefit of being easy to swallow, have another very important trait. According to the Physicians Desk Reference,

Liquid is absorbed at a 98% rate, versus

Only 10 – 20% in hard capsules or tablet forms.

This very important distinction is extraordinarily important. It is not uncommon to have [hard] capsules pass right through the body in a way that the product name is still visible after the pill has left the body completely. This does not happen with liquids, as they are absorbed completely and are not wasted."

The National Advisory Board states that:

'100 mg consumed in tablet form translates to a minute stabilized 8.3 mg or 8.3% concentrated in the blood.'

This is simply not the case with liquids!"

"Pills and capsules may cost less, but in reality you get far less absorption for your money. No wonder they cost less!

Liquids are fast--you do not even have to wait for them to dissolve. They start working as soon as you swallow and

Many have very pleasant flavors."
