Vitamins: The Wave of The Future

Liquid Vitamins: The Wave of The Future is written by
David Friedman, DC, ND, a Life College graduate, is a noted
educator and lecturer on nutrition. He is a former teacher
of neurology and author of the textbook, Understanding
The Nervous System.
"My views on nutrition
changed one day a few years ago when a patient came in and
told me that she was having her septic tank repaired. She
told me what was causing the blockage of her sewer was hundreds
of undigested vitamin pills, some of them with the brand names
After hearing this disturbing news, I did some research of
my own. I found in Tacoma Washington, thousands of pounds
of undigested vitamin and mineral pills are pulled
out of the sewers every six weeks. In Salt Lake City, over
150 gallons of vitamin and mineral pills show up in their
filters every month.
The reason is due to the
high metallic content of these pills. Metallic minerals
like oyster shells, carbonates, oxides and dolomites have
the consistency of crushed up rocks, which our bodies
were not designed to digest. Even those pills listed as
"all natural" often have added fillers and coatings
that inhibit absorption.
Desk Reference (page 1542) shows that
That means for every $100
you are spending on nutrients, you are literally flushing
about $90 of it down the toilet. Because of this lack
of absorption, companies must use mega doses of nutrients
and this can cause a taxation on the kidneys.
minerals in a pill form are only 10 to 20% absorbed
by the body.
In a recent interview, Dr. Toby Watkinson,
host of the nationally syndicated weekly radio show "The
Health Detective", warns that ... ?incomplete, synthesized,
nutritionally deficient nutrients" put you at risk:
better off taking no vitamins at all than the wrong ones"
According to the National
Advisory Board, 100 mg consumed in a tablet form translates
to a minute stabilized 8.3 mg concentration in the
Upon realizing nutrients in pill form leave much to be desired,
I started to eliminate them from my inventory and started
exclusively selling a
liquid nutrient. I admit figuring out just which
supplements to carry in your office can often be a task.
For example, if you recommend calcium to your
patients they must also take magnesium. Then for magnesium
and calcium to properly absorb they also need boron. In order
for all of these to properly assimilate, amino acids are required.
Studies show vitamin E is very helpful in preventing heart
disease, but current research shows to maintain normal blood
concentrations of Vitamin E, your patients must take zinc.
However, if they take zinc, a proper balance of copper and
vitamin C is essential.
After taking over 20 different nutrients myself and recommending
a giant handful per day to my patients, I knew there had to
be a better way.
Nutritional drinks and oral
sprays offer a 98% absorption rate because they bypass the
digestive process and
go directly into the blood stream and into the cells within
a matter of minutes.
In fact, tests from Massachusetts General Hospital have shown
higher blood concentrations of insulin by oral liquid application.
Even injections will take the insulin 30 minutes longer to
reach the same blood levels.
Not only are liquid nutrients more convenient, they
also allow those with irritable bowel syndrome, hiatal hernias
and diverticulitis to take nutrients that may have irritated
them in a pill or capsule form.
Our bodies consist
of approximately 70% water. Not ordinary water, but
salt water. The human body contains the same salts that exist
in the ocean in almost the exact proportions. Both the ocean
water and the water within us contains 80% sodium, 4% calcium,
4% potassium and 12% sulfur.
Did you know that you can synthesize ?salt
water? in a lab, but when you put a fish in it, the fish dies?
25 mg of vitamin C in lemon juice will cure scurvy - but 25
mg of synthetic ascorbic acid will NOT. Science can't duplicate
what exists in nature.
have yet to improve on what Mother Nature
has given us to eat. Foods simply cannot be
artificially duplicated in the science laboratory."

I have sold many
nutritional products in my office over the past nine years.
In one month, I heard more positive testimonies from patients
taking their nutrition from a
liquid source than all the nutrients I have ever
I can not keep the product stocked and often have people sitting
in my waiting room waiting for UPS to deliver more bottles.
I never saw this type of response when I sold tablets, capsules
I feel liquid nutrients are like a computer and pills are
like a typewriter. Once someone types a letter on a computer
and sees how superior it is, they never want to touch
a typewriter again."
