Sublingual Vitamin Supplements: What Are They
Sublingual vitamin supplements are becoming more and more common these days. Their easy to use capability allows them to be beneficial to many different kinds of people. Continue reading to learn more about what they are and the kinds that we offer.
What are Sublingual Vitamin Supplements?
Sublingual vitamin supplements are vitamins that absorb from underneath the tongue. This means that the vitamins will be able to make it into the bloodstream quicker. They do this by bypassing the gastrointestinal tract. All of our supplements come in a liquid form that allows for even easier and quicker absorption.
What Sublingual Vitamins Do We Offer?
The first sublingual supplement is our Colloidal Silver. Our colloidal silver is a 45ppm sublingual dietary supplement. It contains minerals that the body needs in a base solution of purified water. They are developed using an electro-colloidal process that allows for the sublingual delivery. For more information, you can visit our website to learn more about this product.
The second sublingual product we offer is our Sleep Well. Sleep Well is a sleep aid supplement that promotes natural sleep that doesn't result in the "hangover effect" that many other sleep aid supplements can cause. Sleep Well contains Melatonin, which millions of people use each night. They use it because of the numerous studies that show how melatonin can help the body restore it's natural ability to fall asleep.
Vitamin B-12 sublingual supplements are absorbed into the body for fast and effective results. B-12 is required for the proper development and functioning of the brain cells. It also helps with the nerve and blood cells as well as many other parts of the human body. One of its main purposes is to provide vegetarians and vegans with a reliable source of vitamin B-12.
Our vegan-friendly Vitamin D3 supplements can be easily added to liquids and are great for children and those who have difficulty swallowing pills. The human body needs vitamin D because of its bone-building abilities, but did you know that it can do much more? Vitamin D can also benefit you by helping with, immune support, cardiovascular protection, and healthy aging.
Absorption Of Sublingual Vitamins
If you researched which type of vitamin is absorbed the best, you’d mostly find the answer to be sublingual vitamins. But what are sublingual vitamins? The definition of sublingual, according to www.thefreedictionary.com is: Below or beneath the tongue; hypoglossal (pertaining to nerves or other structures under the tongue) – so what does this have to do with absorbing vitamins?
Think about those big, hard pills you may be taking, how does your body actually reap any benefits from them? First, you have to swallow them (a chore for some people, myself included) and then your body has to break them down before they can be absorbed. Then, from what I’ve read, there’s a good chance your body won’t even be able to properly absorb all the vitamins or nutrients you’re trying to get before the rest of the pill is worked through the rest of your digestive system. When you take a liquid vitamin such as a sublingual vitamin, you reap the benefit of being more quickly absorbed into the body.
Sublingual Vitamin Absorption Rates
In regards to liquid sublingual vitamins, the Physicians’ Desk Reference states that something delivered in pill, capsule or gel cap form only absorbs 10-30% while something delivered in sublingual liquid vitamin or spray form absorbs 50-95% (Physicians’ Desk Reference, NPPDR No. 18:676, 1997). So wouldn’t it stand to reason that taking a vitamin, mineral or nutrient in liquid or spray form would be more beneficial since you wouldn’t be putting your body through the arduous task of breaking down those hard pills?
Of course, it also depends on the overall quality of the vitamin or supplement product you’re taking. However, it seems apparent that taking sublingual vitamins in liquid form make the most sense and product the fastest and best results. Make sure you do your research and talk to your doctor if you have any questions.
