Hi I take a number of vitamins daily and have done for a few years. I belive they work but somebody brought something to my attention the other day and I don't know how much truth is in it - maybe someone cab explain? :-
'vitamin tablets, at the high end of the arket, contain complex 'conduits' that allow the actual vitamin to be taken in my the body. These conduits are the expensive part of the tablet.
The cheaper ones do not contain the conduits meaning that the actual vitamin is burned away by your stomach acid. As these cheaper versions do indeed contain the said viatamis, they aren't breaking trade descriptions etc.'
You want answers and I can see that no one has offered any advice to your question.
When it comes to vitamins, there are a number of things to look at. If you are going to waste money, then you want to make sure that you are getting your value.
To simply the quote, most of the cheap store pills don't get absorbed by the body-only a small portion and the rest is literally flushed down the toilet. That's why you will see things as water soluble, fructose compounding, and a list of other terms to make you believe that they are the best on the market. True they are better than the cheap store bought pills. I'd said the more absorbable, the higher the price tag. I'd much rather opt for a cheaper price tag, but i'd be wasting my money on something I wouldn't take consistently and something that my body is not absorbing either.
I hope that answered your question about conduits. It's just merely another means for absorbability factor.
Honey, that just a fancy way of trying to get you to pay the extra money for the same thing. If the cheap vitamins didn't work or didn't give you the daily requirements that are listed right on the package, then they wouldn't be allowed to sell them and your doctor wouldn't tell you to take them. The expensive ones are just there to make money, so don't waste your money on them. The above poster was trying to sell her product to you which is why she was saying all that stuff about it being worth the extra money, blah blah. The sales pitch was edited out though, so you can't tell.
