When we try to include too much nutrition in a liquid format we overload what that liquid can hold and solids begin to precipitate out or else it just turns into a “sludge.” Capsules and tablets, on the other hand, provide the perfect medium for “add-on” or “targeted” or “specialty” ingredients. We can pack a lot more into a pill.
Due to other technical considerations we can actually achieve greater potency in a pill than in a liquid. The Beyond Tangy Tangerine Tablets (BTT Tablets) serve as a perfect example. Whereas in the powdered form we achieve an ORAC score (measurement of antioxidant strength) of between 5000 and 8000, just 4 of the BTT Tablets weigh in at an astounding 160,000 ORAC score!
Another advantage tablets and pills enjoy is they are portable, they do not require refrigeration (generally) and have a longer shelf life.
