Some of the Herbalogic formulas are the same ingredients whether in liquid or capsule forms. They are the ones with the same names: Easy Breather, Flashback, Quiet Mind and Solid Eight. For some of the formulas, the capsule is the liquid but with some additional ingredients. These are the capsules with the extra letters as suffix to the name: Back In Action XT, Decompress MX, Fixed Focus HD, Peacekeeper CX, and Peak Power K2.
Capsules take longer to digest because your stomach has to work its way through the vegan gel cap we use. Thus, the onset of the herbs takes longer. However, because of the concentration process we use to make the capsules, the duration of effect is longer lasting. If you truly have no preference between taking capsules and liquids from a taste standpoint, ask yourself, are you a three dose a day person (liquid) or a two dose a day person (capsule)? Also, what is more convenient to your daily routine? Maybe that second or third dose doesn’t happen at home, in which case you might be happier with capsules where you can just pack two of them in a little pill box and take them to-go. Finally, there is an art to combining the liquids and capsules based on what health system you are trying to support. For example, Peacekeeper might be appropriate the entire month on a daily basis to help with overall emotional support, because, in my experience, my menstrual cycle isn’t the only time that people are aggravating. But once PMS related pain arrives, it might be time to add a dose of Peacekeeper CX for the inflammation mitigating effect. But really, back to the original point, whether you are talking about Herbalogic products or some other supplement, on the question of liquids vs capsules, the answer- whichever one will consistently end up in your stomach is the right one for you.
