I've found that swallowing pills is a challenge for some people. But it’s usually because they are timidly trying to take one at a time. Then the pill awkwardly gets stuck in their throat and they are even timider the next time they try to swallow a pill.
Every morning I take a good number of supplements. I consider them an investment in both my daily health and my longevity. First I get some food in my system. Usually something low in carbs, and high in protein and healthy fats. Then it’s supplement time. I consume all of the BoxJump products each day: including the 5 pills in a 360 pack, 2 Omega-3 Krill Oil softgels, 2 Natural Turmeric Root capsules. That’s 9 pills. Seem like a lot to swallow? Nope.
My mom taught me the secret to taking pills when I was a kid. When she was young, she contracted tuberculosis and was quarantined in the hospital for months. Multiple times each day, the doctors made her take a small mountain of medications. The nurses taught patients to treat pills like a bite of food, and easily swallow as many as 20 pills at once. Yes, TWENTY of them, in one gulp.
Swallowing multiple pills is way easier than swallowing a single pill! Give it a shot tomorrow morning. Those 9 pills I take every morning? I take them with 1 sip of coffee.
