About 40% of the United States adult population have difficulty swallowing pills. In most cases, however, these people do not have difficulty swallowing food or drinks. For some unfortunate ones, the problem gets so severe that it does not allow them to take pills that are very much needed for their overall health, such as vitamins and supplements. This may be especially frustrating for those people who are very much interested in supporting their health by taking supplements that can help enhance their well-being.
There can be a lot of reasons as to why a person finds it difficult to swallow pills. Some say it’s psychological, while others blame it on the gagging reflex. Whatever the reason may be, it boils down to one serious problem: you won’t be able to take pills when you need to.
This is the same thing that happened to Rich Vitamins, creator of AlternaVites founder, Hallie Rich. She belongs to a generation of family that is dedicated to the vitamin industry. While she strongly believed in the health benefits of the vitamins that their company manufactures, she wasn’t able to take them. She can’t swallow pills. Then it doomed on her that vitamins are good, but they can’t really help you when you can’t swallow them. Rich’s dilemma then gave birth to AlternaVites – the ultimate alternative to your regular vitamin pills.
AlternaVites was introduced in the year 2010. What is it exactly? It is a complete multivitamin and mineral in crystal powder form that quickly melts in your mouth. AlternaVites if the very first of its kind. Addressing the problem of 40% of the US population, AlternaVites quickly made its way to fame and recognition and was known as the “non-pill” vitamin option. It became clear to the company that AlternaVites is a product that’s not only great for those people who have difficulty swallowing, but for everybody who aims to support their overall health through multivitamins and mineral supplements. AlternaVites has 23 essential vitamins and minerals. It is a full spectrum multivitamin and mineral that offers an outstanding nutritional support. It does not contain sugar, artificial flavors or any kinds of preservatives. Its convenience, delicious taste, portability, and high potency formula gave it much broader appeal.
What’s even more exciting about this brand is that it’s not only meant for adults. The company also took into consideration that parents would also want a better alternative for their kids. They were disappointed in products with high sugar content, incomplete formulas, and artificial ingredients. And so they came up with AlternaVites Kids – a children’s multivitamin & mineral that has awesome kid-approved flavors while maintaining the integrity, quality and versatility associated with the original alternaVites formula.
