Liquid Vitamin benefit, is this form any better than taking a regular pill that can be swallowed?
April 12 2017

A daily liquid vitamin supplement is not necessarily much better than swallowing a pill. The major reason I would recommend this form is to those who have difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets. Liquid vitamins are much more expensive than capsules or tablets.

Eur J Pediatrics. 2011. Acceptance of two liquid vitamin D formulations among mothers with newborn infants: a randomized, single-blind trial. In Switzerland, children are prescribed 7.5-12.5 μg per day of vitamin D(3) dissolved in alcohol, but many families do not adhere to the recommendation. The aim of the trial was to compare the acceptance of vitamin D(3) dissolved in alcohol or in medium-chain triglycerides among mothers of Swiss newborn infants. The acceptance was tested in 42 healthy newborn infants (20 girls and 22 boys) aged between 2 and 7 days. Their neonatal body weight ranged between 2.2 and 4.1 kg, and the gestational age between 36 and 41 weeks. The blinded mothers rated the facial reaction of their children by pointing on a facial hedonic scale. Thirty eight of the 41 mothers, who brought the comparison to completion, assigned a better score to the oily preparation with no difference in the remaining three cases. The acceptance for the oily preparation was significantly better both among mothers whose babies were initially presented the alcoholic preparation and among mothers whose babies were initially presented the oily preparation. Furthermore, the acceptance for the oily preparation was better irrespective of gender of the infant or parity of the mother. In conclusion, from the perspective of mothers, Swiss newborn infants prefer the taste of the oily vitamin D(3) preparation over the alcoholic preparation.

   A. At this time we only have it in capsule form, however the capsule can be opened and the contents mixed in juice or food.

Q. I cannot swallow pills or capsules. Are there liquid vitamin alternatives to your products or can I crush the pills and take them? (I am especially thinking of the vision formulas)
