How can I compare the dosage of herb capsules or soft gels to the dosage of liquid herbal Life Line Herbal Products?
Liquid herbal Life Line Herbal Products are much easier to absorb and assimilate into the body than herb capsules and soft gels. Herb capsules and soft gels made from crude herb have to be digested (i.e., Life Line Herbal Products) by your body before the herb's chemical constituents can be absorbed into the bloodstream. Since many herbs are very woody, digesting and absorbing them can be very difficult, especially for people with digestive problems. Therefore, much of the capsule or soft gel remains undigested and never gets absorbed. However, the chemical constituents in a liquid herbal Life Line Herbal Products have already been "digested" and can therefore be readily absorbed into the bloodstream.
