Swallow, drink, or chew vitamins are all you see on pharmacy shelves. Large tablets, gummies or drinks all need to pass through the harsh environment of the gastric tract and can be very hard to swallow. Stomach troubles while taking supplements is very common and a likely deter in making the conscious decision to keep up on a supplement routine. It is highly likely that if you are currently taking daily vitamins and minerals to support your body, that you are swallowing them. There is data that shows 40% of adults avoid taking supplements and vitamins due to swallowing issues.
WHY DO WE SWALLOW OUR VITAMINS?
When taking daily supplements started to gain popularity, Big Pharma jumped on the band wagon and added a few vitamins to their pre-existing pharmaceuticals. These companies pushed the pills to the public, they advertised all the health benefits of the vitamin mix but swiftly ignored the potentially harmful chemicals consumed with it or the large tablets or capsules. They did not want to reinvent the wheel and wanted to make maximum profit with minimum research.
After many people complained about the pills being very hard to swallow, the entrepreneurs of that time re-invented the wheel by adding gummy vitamins and vitamin drinks to the market. Even though these alternative remedies significantly improved the unpleasant experience of taking vitamins, they did not solve all the issues
HERE ARE THREE ALTERNATIVES THAT MAY SOLVE YOUR SWALLOWING PROBLEM.
- Intravenous (IV) Drip
To administer an IV drip, a doctor or medical professional will insert a small plastic tube (catheter) into a vein using a needle. While a big benefit of the IV drip is that it can deliver this fluid throughout the body with 100% absorption into the bloodstream, there are some downsides. The IV drip usually takes 45-60 minutes to infuse. On top of this, it needs to be done by an experienced professional which will add even more time and medical costs to get the vitamins into the body.
- Intramuscular Injection (Shot)
An intramuscular injection is a technique used to deliver a medication or supplement deep into the muscles, allowing the medication to be absorbed into the bloodstream quickly. This technique is commonly used to take steroids and was able to be repurposed for vitamins. The reason most people do not administer their daily supplements this way is that it is known to be a painful experience and may cause side effects. Additionally, the injectable supplement is quite expensive and, without insurance, is not affordable for the public.
- Buccal Mucosa
The buccal mucosa is accessible under your tongue. You can place any substance here to dissolve and absorb into your blood through the tissue that is there. Unlike the IV drop, this process usually takes 30-60 seconds and can be done by anyone, anywhere! Frunutta vitamins are a perfect example of an instant-dissolving vitamin that can be placed on the buccal mucosa.
