The process by which tablets are made require a "sticking" agent, heat or both. This makes it more difficult for your body to assimilate the contents of the tablet, plus the additional fillers required to make it into the tablet form.
We at Suede Hills we have found that vegetarian capsules breakdown the quickest to release the nutrient contents into your system quickly. This is why all of our encapsulated Alfalfa Powder, Olive Leaf Powder and pH Happy Caps, are in Vegetarian capsules.
I will relate a quick story. As Phil and I have traveled this Healthy Lifestyle journey there have been a few particular moments that make you go, "uh ha! Now I get it!"
Phil "requires" that we travel with only one carry on bag each. The solution was to depend completely on our Alfalfa Powder for our daily mineral and vitamin supply. That meant leaving all those expensive, space consuming vitamins and mineral supplements at home. Long story short, we still felt great even without the supplements, so we never went back to taking them. To this day our Alfalfa Powder is what we refer to as our multi-vitamin and mineral support.
Months later I decide to get rid of the old supplements. Phil came in and said, "Don't waste them, they were expensive! Put them in a jug of water and then give them to the house plants." I did just that. I was amazed to see the capsules start to breakdown within about 45 seconds. Two hours later I walk passed the jug and notice that the water was a kind of yellowy brown, but I could still see the tablets were not dissolved. Twenty three (23) hours later most of the tablets were still intact!!! I was choked!! We had been spending all that money on those expensive vitamins and minerals, for all these years, and they had been doing us no good!
If your supplements are not getting into your system within 1/2 hour to 45 minutes, chances are you are not benefiting from them at all. Tablets don't break down that fast, Suede Hills Organic Farm vegetarian capsules can.
