I started my vitamin program Sunday, but my problem with swallowing large pills has made it impossible to continue, unless it is possible to crush the pills and add to either applesauce or juice. Can you advise me on this. Thank you.
A few people have trouble swallowing large tablets, but have less difficulty swallowing capsules of the same size. The laboratory that produces my unique vitamin, Vital Primivia, can only put ½ the contents in a capsule that they can put into a tablet, and some people already think they are taking too many ‘pills’ as supplements. So I have elected to go with tablets. Because of the high calcium and magnesium content, they will be very difficult to crush. You might try blending them in a high powered blender, such as a Blendtec or a VitaMix, along with fruit juices or sauces to disguise the flavor. Because of the high B vitamin content, the taste will not be good. But crushing the tablets will not change the potency or be a problem at all from a potency standpoint, so go ahead and try it. If you and others are interested in making the capsule form available, recognizing that it will take more capsules to get the same potency, let me know and I will look seriously at the options.
