Are Chewables Vitamins better than Pills?
Is it true that chewable vitamins are better absorbed than the same pills. I was using Centrum 50+ chewables but as I got further out I switched to the Centrum 50+ tablets. I have read somewhere that the chewable are better absorbed. Is that true?
The pills are cheaper but if the chewable work better perhaps I should suck it up and spend the little extra!

i just had a follow up appointment today with the rn and i crush all my pills except the cal with vitamin D. she said thats fine
thats just my experience
I had been told also that the only real difference is pills are not as 'tasty' as chewable ones, the ingredients are the same except for flavour. Not sure if this is true but that's what the nurse told me the other day at HRRH.
