Green smoothie surrounded by apples and leafy greens

Question: Would it be alright to put nutritional supplements in a blender and mix the nutritional supplements in a fruit smoothie or does blending the vitamin pills; tabs; or caps; negate there nutritional value in any way?

Answer: I suspect there would not be a problem putting nutritional supplements in a blender as long as the blending is brief. Blending for too long could generate heat and potentially cause changes to the supplements. However, some supplements are more effective, or noticeable, when taken on an empty stomach.
