Ever have some of those pills that look so big you think they belong to a large animal, not a human being? One of the biggest deterrents to my taking vitamins regularly is that some days I just can’t swallow those pills without the gagging reflex kicking in.
I recently read this tip in a magazine and it really does seem to help.
Tilt your chin DOWN when swallowing instead of up, as what comes naturally since we are trying to swallow. Evidently, this position of your throat then opens up the esophagus and closes the windpipe and the pill can slide down more easily!
