No. The oral spray delivery mechanism avoids primary processing by the digestive system, meaning it can be taken at any time of day with or without food. The active ingredients are delivered directly into the bloodstream via the mucosal membranes in the mouth.
The spray can be taken at any time of day, the key is to make it part of your daily routine.
Many people find it is easiest to take it first thing in the morning as part of their morning routine, but as the sprays are easy to use, portable and don’t need to be taken with food or drink, they can be used any time of day.
The oral spray range has been formulated to be absorbed through the mucosal membrane within the mouth. We have conducted clinical trials with Cardiff University and found that the most effective area for absorption to be on the inside of the cheek. Our formula within our oral sprays have therefore been specifically made to provide optimal and guaranteed, immediate absorption in this area.
Spraying oral sprays onto your food or into a drink would mean it is processed by the digestive system rather than going through the mucosal membranes in the mouth.
Formulated to provide optimum nutritional delivery, each spray provides the active ingredient in micro-sized droplets that permeate the soft-tissue of the inner cheek, delivering the essential nutrients into the rich vein system below. This allows the formulation to quickly enter the bloodstream for optimal absorption.
