Every normal pill can be powdered… I never could swallow any pills (or half or a quarter), I always chew them into very tiny pieces. I need to take apart the capsules, I can’t help that but I had that once in my life, just in case, my dentist that time was too paranoid or wanting to be safe, it wasn’t really important. I am fine with eating one pill in every month or something, bad headaches can make me eating more but that’s it (and if it’s medicine, it must be something not too brutal or else I will instinctively spit it out, my body just reject it. but my experiences are tiny as I was always quite healty). I have ascorbic acid but I don’t eat it (I would if I felt the need) as it’s not nice tasting. I like sour but only if it’s tasty. I used it together with lemon juice for a while but I stopped. Sometimes I wonder if it’s okay as I eat very little vitamin C but it’s an experiment I suppose. Calcium and vitamin C, if I worry about any micronutrients, it’s these so my resistance is smallest towards them. I have calcium fizzy tablets, they are easy to eat, I just dislike the sweetener in it (I can handle the taste, I just dislike that it’s in it, totally unnecessarily. I liked my tasteless magnesium pills, I chew them and they quickly helped so I knew they were good. except one when I was careless and didn’t read ALL ingredients. it’s so very complicated, it’s one reason I prefer my food - though I eat everything at once there and it’s not good for certain combos). And have no idea how effective it is but it’s true for most supplements. As I only took magnesium when I had cramps, it was easy to notice those pills worked. I am bad with taking supplements based on a mere belief (that I don’t have). If I feel the need, that helps but I usually don’t.
The form itself doesn’t really matter. I suspect iodine in my salt can’t hurt but I do nothing actively after I buy it so that’s fine. I never could eat fiber as “fiber” either, only if it had a role in a dish (but I don’t need any fiber anyway so it’s not a perfect example. but many people eat fiber as supplement and it’s strange for me as my first thought to get more of something is putting it into my food where it has some role, not just supplement).
In this country, there is a liquid stuff for general well-being…? 2x20 drops a day. I can’t imagine how people do that. Counting 40 drops every day? I would lose patience the very first time. But I don’t feel the need, it obviously matters a lot…I would do VERY MUCH for my health.
I may change later but I have good genes and I am quite young yet, in my 40s and my body works well.
