This is a good question honeypot. My question is a pill or liquid vitamin the best choice? I've always taken the pill but I've heard a lot lately about liquid being a better option.

All vitamins are not made equal
One way to ensure that you are getting high quality vitamins is to look the NSF logo on the bottle. NSF International is an independent, not-for-profit organization that helps protect consumers by certifying products and writing standards for food, water, air and consumer goods.
On top of this, look for manufacturers that offer a guaranty of potency. If the manufacturer does not stand behind their products, why should you trust them to by from them?

You get what you pay for
Yep, that holds true with vitamins too. Like Ourdia said, look for the NSF logo. That'll help. Also, if the vitamin is pharmaceutical grade, it goes through a much more rigorous testing process. Something "off the shelf" isn't guaranteed to disolve nor is it guaranteed to actually contain what's listed on the bottle. Pharmaceutical grade vitamins ARE required.
