The “No Pill” Solution
What to do if you can’t swallow pills
Swallowing pills is not always as easy as it sounds. Swallowing involves the use of more than 50 different muscles to move food from the mouth to the stomach.
There are a number of reasons why people can’t swallow pills. For some people, it could be caused from a narrow esophagus, medical condition, swallowing disorder or pill swallowing anxiety.
This is often an unfortunate disadvantage because many people rely on taking medications or supplements daily to maintain certain areas of health. For some medications and supplements, there are easy to open capsules that you can pour into soft food like applesauce or yogurt, or into a beverage to help make it easy to swallow.
These days there are plenty of alternatives available for pills and capsules. At Vitamin Health, we saw the immediate need for an easy-to-swallow solution for both our Viteyes ® AREDS 2 based line. We provide two powder options to mix in water or your favorite drink: AREDS 2 based supplement — it has a great tasting orange flavor!
Any of our capsules can also be easily opened and emptied into soft foods or into a beverage. Ask your doctor for more guidance to help you take your pills or powder each day with confidence.We are happy to provide solutions and options for everyone.
