Liquid Vitamins: The Wave of The Future
by Dr. David Friedman
The following article excerpt is taken from the March/April issue of Chiropractic Economics - which is one of the world's most widely read Chiropractic trade publications.
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 still readable.
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.
The Physician's Desk Reference (page 1542) shows that vitamins and
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.
Side Note: 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:
"you're 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 blood.
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.
Side Note: 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.
"We 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 sold combined!
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 or pills.
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."
