I was looking around online and came across spray vitamins instead of pills, and they seem to have some good advantages over pills. Apparently, you just spray this stuff in your mouth and it gets absorbed straight to your blood stream from the lining in your mouth, instead of going into your stomach, and dissolving. Theres all types of vitamin sprays, from mulitvitamins to a zinc/vitamin c spray for colds. Anybody try this stuff? Im going to buy some and see how it does.

I'd have to do some actual research, but for some reason my gut is just telling me something is weird about it. Also, they don't seem to list the amounts of each vitamin, etc. Plus, I wouldn't even bother considering you can get a much greater quantity of pills for the price of these.

I just don't get the whole "but it's more bioavailable" thing.

I mean, who cares if it is, if the alternative is half as bioavailable, but a tenth the price?


Sorry. Must be my Scottish heritage kicking in.

i dont know what bioavailable means, but I read up on this whole oral spray delivery system that they are trying to implement, and apparently spraying this stuff in your mouth has a higher absorbtion rate than taking pills. They say that when you take pills, most of the vitamins gets carried out of your body as urine, and doesnt even get absorbed, but with this spray, it goes directly to the blood stream, and is more effective.

That's what bioavailable means.

It's okay, it was kinda cute - saved me from having to 'splain it.

Probably most of it is marketing. If nutrients weren't absorbed through the digestion process (not saying everything is, all the time) we would have IVs for our protein supplements, etc. etc. (I can see the new Muscletech product now)

*taps on his IV* superior bioavailability for my supplements. Swallow pills? pffft...straight into my bloodstream, beat that!

Forget that... sublimation of pills. Just breath in the gas.

Hmmm, gas...
