Bioavailability & Nutritional Supplements

When considering which anti aging supplement to take, it is important to understand and consider the bioavailability of each supplement.

What does this mean?

Bioavailability is a term used to describe how effectively the body absorbs nutrients.

Nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, in liquid form are absorbed more readily by the body than with a capsule or tablet. Your body also requires minerals and trace elements to assist in the absorption process.

Understanding this concept is important when assessing different types of supplements. It helps us determine which products we can use to feel better and become healthier.

Influencing Factors

Liquid supplements are a better option than tablets, as they are absorbed faster and more completely. So if you are considering taking nutritional supplements, it is important to consider taking them in a liquid form.

While it may be tempting to simply take higher doses of cheap tablet based vitamins, this simply isn’t as effective. If they have a low bioavailability your body will only benefit from a tiny fraction of their ingredients. It would be like filling your car with gas, and only being able to use a tiny percentage of the fuel in your tank.

Our body does not use all the nutrients it consumes. Your metabolism and whether it's slow or quick can affect how chemicals are absorbed by your body. Interaction with other foods and drugs may also have an influence. Your general health status plays a role as well. Even inadequate storage of the product may lead to lower bioavailability.

Super Foods

Another way to make sure that you enjoy the benefits from taking a supplement is to check the ingredients. This may sound obvious, but many people don't do it. The best bioavailability is obtained from supplements which contain nutrients from super foods with high antioxidant properties, and a combination of minerals, vitamins and trace elements.

Wild Alaskan blueberries, which are the key ingredient of some of the most recommended anti aging supplements, are a super food that is rich in antioxidants. There are many other super foods, for example salmon, pumpkins, tomatoes, soy, tea and broccoli.

So if you are searching for an anti aging supplement with a high bioavailability, choose one that has a wide range of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, comes in liquid form and has one or more super foods as its main ingredient.
