Herbs can be used in both the liquid and capsule form depending on your personal preference. Liquids are more easily absorbed and are perfect for people who have trouble swallowing pills, such as children and the elderly. Unlike other liquid brands, Nature's Answer? is alcohol free or very low in alcohol (12-14%). Capsules may be preferable because using them avoids the bitter and unpleasant taste of some herbs, and they can be packed in a pill case for ease of dosing, convenient for the supplement user on the go.
