The time of taking a single nutrient vitamin or
mineral like Vitamin C or Vitamin E is outdated. Recent studies show
conclusively that vitamins and minerals work together in synergy,
and if one is inadequately supplied, then the others cannot work very
effectively. Multi-vitamins are definitely the way to go.

of people take a multi-vitamin and mineral in capsule or tablet
form. *Studies have shown that the body only absorbs between
10% to 20% of the nutrients available in capsulated form,
which means of every $100.00 spent on capsules or tablets,
approximately $90.00 is wasted.
When a capsule or tablet is swallowed, it takes between
20 to 25 minutes to break down in the stomach. Even though
most people take a capsule or tablet with water, the
water passes quickly, leaving only the stomach acids
to poorly distribute the nutrients.

vitamins and minerals. Because of the high percentage
of water in the body, nearly 100% of the nutrients from
1st STEP Liquid is retained, and the vitamins and minerals
are absorbed almost immediately.
How to Use: 1st STEP is very easy to use. Simply loosen
or remove the cap from the chamber side, squeeze the
liquid up into the chamber and drink.
