Do you take vitamins, minerals, or supplements? If you do, you may be familiar with the infamous horse pill. What's a horse pill? It's a term for a pill that is super large (or at least larger than the typical pill) and is not super fun or easy to swallow. I can tell you from experience that horse pills aren't a joy to take every day and I'm sure many others can agree with me on that. Well, I have some good news! There is a line of vitamins (and other products) called Superior Source that has created MicroLingual® vitamins and minerals, which dissolve in the mouth—so no need to swallow the notorious horse pill.
MicroLingual® Takes The Pain Out Of Swallowing
I had the opportunity to try a couple of Superior Source's MicroLingual® products, including their Just Women Iron 30 mg with Vitamin C, B12 & Folic Acid and their Pure NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide). Both come in the form of their instant dissolving tablets. The beauty of Superior Source's MicroLingual® tablets is that, according to the company, the tablets dissolve “straight into the body . . . with fewer inactive binders and fillers and a higher ratio of nutritional ingredients.” This ultimately leads to “more efficient absorption,” which is something I love about these vitamins and minerals! The company also states, “Our Micro tablets only contain the pure active nutrients and other necessary natural ingredients.” And, the company has significant testing done on their products to ensure they provide a quality product, which is something I highly value in products that I'm feeding my body on a daily basis!
The Pure NMN contains nicotinamide mononucleotide, stevia leaf extract, lactose, natural cherry flavor and acacia gum and nothing else. The Just Women Iron contains vitamin C, iron, folate, vitamin B12, stevia leaf extract, lactose, natural cherry flavor, acacia gum and that's it! Furthermore, both do not contain GMOs.
As for flavor, they aren't your typical chewable vitamin flavor. They have a small hint of sweetness and what I'd describe as a tart flavor. I just place them under my tongue and they dissolve within less than a minute. They are very easy to take, and I'm sure people who hate swallowing pills would truly appreciate this format of a pill. I also didn't experience any upset stomach.
Collagen + Chocolate = Yummy and Healthy
In addition to their sublingual vitamins and minerals, Superior Source also provides other great products. One of their new products is their Keto Collagen with MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) in chocolate flavor. According to the product website, “Collagen is the most abundant substance in the body and helps give structure to our hair, skin, nails, bones, ligaments and tendons. When we get older, the production of collagen begins to slow down. Supplementing with collagen peptides (or hydrolyzed collagen) may help with the body’s need for these building blocks.”*
I've taken collagen for a couple of years now, and I really do appreciate the difference it has made for my older body. And, what I really appreciate about this Keto Collagen is that it provides 10g of protein and has minimal ingredients. It's also free of gluten and dairy. I mixed it with my vanilla soy milk and it tasted like chocolate milk!
Don't Forget The Immune System
Another cool product they have is their Organic Mushroom Infusion. I'm super excited about this product because it has a lot of great ingredients. As listed on the product website, it contains, “. . . beneficial organic mushrooms (Turkey Tail, Reishi & Chaga) and . . . balanced levels of critical vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc and Elderberry extract, to support a healthy immune system, plus clinically researched herbs and antioxidants for superior protection.” I'm all about supporting my immune system as best I can, so this product is right up my alley! Thank you Superior Source!!
I Don't Have to Drink Beet Juice Anymore!
And, lastly, another product I had the opportunity to try was their Organic Beet Root + Apple Cider Vinegar Powder. According to the product website, “Benefits include nitric oxide booster, appetite control, increased energy, healthy blood pressure, and better circulation.”* That's quite a powerful punch of healthy benefits!
In the past I've tried to drink beet juice for its health benefits and it's a strong-tasting juice that I have a hard time getting down. So, when I tasted this Organic Beet Root + Apple Cider Vinegar Powder, I was pleasantly surprised because the taste was much easier and better tasting than beet juice. It was a light, sweet taste that I actually enjoyed drinking. And, for all this product has to offer, this is one product that I plan to incorporate into my health plan.
