yes it makes a difference.. dont chew them, it takes away the time release off the pills.. try filling your mouth with some water first then add the pills.. that helps me because i hate taking pills as well..

Or if you absolutly must, take a bite of some food and then before you swallow, pop in the pills and just swallow with the food. Makes it easier if you can't dry swallow or swallow with water.

I couldn't even imagine trying to chew those pills. They're hard as rocks and the taste would probably make you gag.

If they taste anything like they smell then yeah... I just hold my breath and take the whole baggie at once.

Is animal pack eve nworth buying? I heard as much water you drink you still piss out yellow because the body doesn't need that much vitamins at one time.

i used to have a real issue with swallowing large pills but when you take enough you will get used to it, pretend nothing is in your mouth and just take a swig of whatever drink you choose.. if you tend to focus on the pill in your mouth it will hit your gag reflex and most likely you wont swallow it properly.. good luck bud.

the bright yellow/greenish pee is due to the high amount of riboflavin (vitamin B2). if you're body gets more than it needs, it gets excreted in your urine.

that happens with most multivitamins.

I tried the Animal Pak but didn't really noticed much. I kind of think it's an over priced multi with some enzymes in them. They are big ass horse pills. I took them while I was in class and my classmates gave me so much crap for the smell lol. They made my pockets stink. Anyways, the Opti-Men by Optimum Nutrition is pretty good. It comes in three servings to equal one amount of vitamins so that might help with absorption.
