    I just thought I would pass on this tip that was given to me years ago. If you have difficulty swallowing capsules, place capsule in your mouth, take a drink of water, hang your head down (mouth closed, of course) and the capsule will float to the back of your throat. You can then easily swallow the capsule.

    This only works with capsules, not tablets or solid pills of any kind.

    Try it!!

    I always seem to choke on my supplements - and a hard time swallowing anything. This is a good idea Loloalee. I shall try it!

    It didn't work for me as the water came out my nose. Oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gained!
