It's well known that the body absorbs liquids faster and more effectively than solids. Absorption is very important to consider when taking health supplements. Some argument exists over how much more effective liquids are versus pills, and of course, not all pills are the same. However according to the Physician's Desk Reference, "only 10 to 20 percent of vitamins and minerals in ... pill form are absorbed by the human body."

It's acai, a multipurpose megabooster berry that Hollywood has been hooked on." - People Magazine 1/30/06
