Chew on this
When choosing an Immunity booster, do you chew or swallow?! Evidence suggests that chewables are the most effective supplements. Here’s why…
The cheek and area under the tongue have many capillaries, or tiny blood vessels and chewing rather than swallowing a supplement means it can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream without going through your digestive system. Chewing also exposes your food (and chewables) to saliva which contains digestive enzymes that break it down—the longer you chew, the more opportunity these enzymes have to work.
DON'T MAKE A MEAL OF IT
Most pill-form vitamins are recommended to be taken with food because if they’re consumed alone, they may not digest as well, cause nausea or heartburn. A chewable can be taken with or without food so you don’t have to remember to take it at mealtimes.
A LESS BITTER PILL TO SWALLOW
If you have a hard time swallowing tablets or capsules, (children definitely do) as they make you gag or you don’t like the unpleasant taste of a capsule starting to dissolve in your mouth, chewables are ideal and can actually even taste good.
