Today we understand that traditional tablet and capsule supplementation relies upon a digestive process that has evolved exclusively for food intake, and absorption cannot be universally guaranteed. Add to this, the dramatic increase in digestive malabsorption issues such as IBS, Crohn’s and coeliac disease and an effective alternative delivery mechanism has become essential.
Traditional tablets and capsules don’t suit everyone. Some of us, particularly children and the elderly, can find them difficult to swallow.
It produces a spray of perfectly balanced micro-sized droplets delivered into the mouth. The tiny droplets absorb quickly, providing fast nutrient uptake – the next generation of vitamin supplementation.
Intra-oral vitamin sprays represent the ultimate in convenience - they do not need to be taken with food or water and can be used on the go.
Developed by BetterYou in 2007 in partnership with Cardiff University, intra-oral spray supplements work by taking advantage of the soft absorbent tissue of the mouth and the proximity of a rich vein system below.
Each spray delivers tiny droplets into the soft tissue of the mouth.
These droplets are then absorbed, entering the rich vein system below.
This allows the formulation to quickly enter the bloodstream for optimal absorption.
Intra-oral spray technology has been used medicinally for many years, but it was the absorption research with Dr. Charles Heard and his team at Cardiff University that harnessed it for nutritional supplementation back in 2007. The result was a fast, effective and convenient delivery mechanism, now used by health professionals worldwide.
Our commitment to developmental science and absorption research has led us to partner with some of the finest research institutions in the world, including the universities of Cardiff, Ulster and Sheffield, St Mark’s Hospital in London and Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust.
We have a range of vitamin sprays available, allowing you to plug the nutritional gaps left by modern diet and pressured lifestyles.
