Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common – do you have any advice?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.

The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help. Top

Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?

Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.

The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV. Top

"I’ve been taking Ultra Sage for all most a year. I would recommend it to anyone who is currently going through the menopause. ''Brilliant'' thank you."

Mrs Joanne Eaton, United Kingdom

"I decided to try Ultra Bilberry, Lutein and Zeaxanthin tablets (already aware that bilberries are good for your eyes) and see if they made any difference. I'm delighted to be able to say that there has been a distinct improvement. Thank you for an excellent product."

Miss Z , United Kingdom

Jemiah Umolu is a true up and coming football star of the future! At just nine years old, he is already signed by Arsenal FC to play in their Under 12 team and is rated one of their best in his age group. Jemiah is a convert to Vitabiotics and this is his father’s testimonial…
"Roughly eight weeks ago my son was registered injured by his football club, Arsenal FC. He was advised to have three to six months rest from all sport. Given he plays for a professional academy, he couldn't afford to take this amount of time off. A week later he started a course of Vitabiotics Jointace, Osteocare and Ultra Omega 3, and just three weeks later he was himself once again. He has and will remain taking Jointace and other Vitabiotics products to maintain healthy joints, teeth and bones as he is still growing."

Mr John Umolu, United Kingdom

"I cannot recommend Vitabiotics Ultra Krill Oil enough. I have been taken them for 6 months they are great. I have told my doctor about what they have done for me. I have never recommend any thing before but these I feel I must tell you"

Mrs Mary S, United Kingdom

"I cannot recommend these enough! They support so many functions of the body, and this is the perfect level (I take 2 each day). They are individually sealed for freshness, and the price is perfect for the amount provided."

Mr John Glassey, United Kingdom
