Do my supplements dissolve properly?

I've seen claims from some doctors and supplement companies that many other brands don't dissolve and therefore are not absorbed by the body. How can I know if my brand is okay?

Check out the "acid test for pills" in our article: What's in Your Multi? This test can be used to find out whether any pill is dissolving quickly and effectively—whether it's a dietary supplement, a prescription drug, or an over-the-counter pharmacy drug.
