Supplements by the human body
Have you ever wondered how supplements can find the right way into your body? Then read on quickly and discover the journey of the supplements you take.
Where does the supplement’s journey begin?
It starts naturally in the mouth. When you swallow the supplement, an intact capsule ends up in the stomach via the esophagus.

What role does the stomach play in taking supplements?
The stomach has gastric juices and acid. The stomach is not only responsible for breaking down food but also for breaking down supplements. To prevent the supplement from coming into contact with stomach acid, the supplement has a stomach acid-resistant layer. This layer is not dissolved in the stomach but only in the intestines, so that the supplement is only released in the intestines and can no longer come into contact with stomach acid. Supplements must be absorbed before they can work. This often happens in the small intestine. Some supplements are absorbed faster than others.
Tip from Goldea
Do you have trouble swallowing the supplement? Then bend your head slightly forward while swallowing. This prevents the supplement you are taking from getting stuck in your throat.
Take a sip of water, put the supplement on your tongue and swallow it with large gulps of water. Then drink a whole glass of water. For the best absorbability, take your supplements during your meal rather than before or after.
How does the supplement know where to go?
The supplement doesn’t know that. Supplements are absorbed from the gut into the blood, after which it can be spread by the whole body. The distribution in the body is different for each supplement.
How are supplements absorbed into your body?
All nutrients need different nutrients for proper absorption. For example, if you use magnesium a> swallows but not (yet) enough vitamin D in your body, your body cannot properly absorb the supplements . The body is a complex machine. Where one complements the other. Another great example is curcumin . When you combine turmeric with pepper, the levels of curcumin in your blood skyrocket. Because the substance Bioperine in black pepper inhibits the breakdown process.
Why does Goldea Health have supplements with a high absorbability?

Goldea Health has developed its supplements in collaboration with (natural) scientists and therapists from the Netherlands.

How do supplements find their way out?
There are several ways in which the human body can get rid of supplements. This can be via the kidneys but also via the liver. Some supplements go out through both organs. Our kidneys filter the blood. Supplements that are filtered are collected in the urine.
