The need for vitamin supplementation is not lost on consumers today. Modern lifestyles, medications and dietary limitations all influence vitamin status and most healthy people who consume a standard modern diet are at risk for deficiency despite appearing healthy (Sivaprasad et. al. 2019).
Oral vitamin supplementation is often used to address these shortcomings; however, a multitude of factors such as pill fatigue, digestive insufficiency, and even forgetfulness can limit the effectiveness of these interventions.
Here are five reasons why you might consider Phytomist™️ Oral Sprays for supplementation
1. Pill fatigue
Pill fatigue is when people lose motivation to take their medications or supplements, due to what’s known as a ‘high pill burden’. This tends to occur when someone becomes overwhelmed with the number of pills they are prescribed or the frequency at which they have to take them. Having an alternate dosing format (like a spray) has the potential to increase compliance especially where consumers struggle to swallow pills.
2. Rapid absorption
Oral sprays offer faster uptake compared to tablets which require dissolution in the digestive system before becoming available for absorption (Marmor, 1990). Oral vitamin sprays have been proven to provide rapid absorption because the droplets immediately enter the bloodstream via the rich vein system in the soft tissue of the mouth (Satia, et. al. 2015).
3. Difficulty swallowing pills
Children and the elderly often struggle with swallowing pills, yet due to limited diets, both groups may need dietary supplementation. Many adults also struggle to swallow certain tablets and capsules, making a spray a convenient and easy to use alternative. Phytomist™️ oral sprays are suitable for children aged 1 and above.
4. Specific diet / medications
B12 deficiency is often prevalent amongst individuals following a meat-free diet, the elderly and those on certain chronic medications (O’Leary & Samman, 2010). People over 50 years of age, people who follow a vegan diet or anyone who is using oral hypoglycaemic drugs (like Metformin) or proton pump inhibitors should take a B12 supplement daily (Langan & Goodbred, 2017).
Whether you’re travelling, on the run or simply admin averse, Phytomist™️ oral vitamin sprays are useful in that they are small, portable and can be taken anytime, anywhere without water. Just 4 sprays directly into the mouth provides the recommended daily dose of each respective vitamin.
Phytomist™️ oral vitamin sprays offer a much-needed reprieve from the complicated supplement regimes many people struggle with today. Convenient, fast, effective, and easy to take, Phytomist™️ Oral vitamin sprays are sugar-free, taste great and provide an effective alternative to traditional oral supplements.
