Sublingual and buccal absorption, which occur in the mouth glands, allow nutrients to enter the bloodstream directly, bypassing the digestive system. This can lead to faster onset of action and higher bioavailability compared to pills that need to be broken down in the stomach and intestines. An article published in the journal "Clinical Pharmacokinetics" (1994) titled "Sublingual Drug Delivery," authored by S. S. Davis, highlights the potential advantages of sublingual administration, including rapid absorption due to the rich blood supply and thin mucosa in the mouth.
Avoidance of First-Pass Metabolism
When substances are absorbed through the digestive tract, they often undergo first-pass metabolism in the liver, which can reduce their potency. Absorption through the oral mucosa circumvents this process, leading to higher concentrations of the active compounds reaching the bloodstream. This concept is discussed in the paper "Oral Mucosal Drug Delivery and Therapy" by T. M. Allen and C. C. Foreman, published in the journal "Journal of Controlled Release" (1997).
Improved Compliance and Convenience
Absorption through mouth glands, particularly sublingual administration, offers a more convenient method of nutrient intake compared to pills or patches. Compliance may improve due to the lack of swallowing difficulties, making it more suitable for individuals who have trouble swallowing pills. This aspect is discussed in the paper "Novel Buccal Drug Delivery Systems" by D. H. Lewis and G. B. Vranić, published in the journal "Pharmaceutical Development and Technology" (2002).
Enhanced Stability of Labile Compounds
Certain nutrients or compounds are sensitive to the acidic environment of the stomach or enzymatic degradation in the intestines. Sublingual or buccal absorption can help bypass these harsh conditions, leading to better preservation of the stability and efficacy of these labile substances.
Absorption via tongue is known to be up to 5x faster than drinking or swallow.
Inter Oral Strips contain only natural flavors, non-GMO ingredients and
Take the strips with you on the go or on the run. Where ever you go they travel well with you. Easier than taking bottles of supplements.
IO Strips, the revolutionary health supplement made with all-natural ingredients, has been proven to help people achieve better and longer-lasting states of overall health. But a common question among those interested in IO Strips is whether they are safe to consume or not.
The answer is yes, IO Strips are perfectly safe for consumption when taken as directed on their label and packaging instructions. All products go through three rounds of rigorous testing carried out by our expert team at IO Strips in order to ensure product integrity and quality without compromising safety standards. Additionally, an independent third-party laboratory conducts its own tests to further verify that the supplements meet and exceed safety requirements set by the U.S. FDA (Food & Drug Administration).
We take extra precautions when formulating these supplements to make sure they remain gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms), and vegan/vegetarian friendly while containing only high-quality ingredients sourced from around the globe with careful consideration given towards environmental sustainability practices involved during production processes.
However, it’s still important that you consult your physician if you have any pre-existing medical condition especially if you are pregnant prior to consuming any new supplement including ours just like any other dietary supplement or medication out there in the market today!
I already take vitamins/supplements, do I take IO Strips with those?
While taking vitamins and supplements is a great way to get your daily dose of nutritional needs, IO Strips provide even more benefits. IO Strips are designed with convenience in mind, so you only have to take one strip instead of 2-3 gummies or pills every single day. One IO Strip provides the same amount of active ingredients as those gummies and pills—minus the added sugar, extra calories, gelatin or any other additives—so you know just how much nutrients you're getting without having to question it.
With each IO Strips pack containing 10 individually sealed strips that you can place on your tongue directly for easy absorption, there's no easier way to get all the essential minerals and vitamins necessary for healthy living each day. If you already take vitamins/supplements but want additional convenience or are looking for an additional source of nutrition with standardized doses of active ingredients and minimum fillers & additives—IO Strips may be a perfect fit! Just make sure that if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are pregnant before starting on this that you consult with your physician first.
Can you explain the concept of bioavailability and its significance?
Bioavailability is the extent to which a substance or drug becomes available in its intended biological destination(s), usually referring to the fraction of active drug that reaches systemic circulation unaltered. This term is extremely important in medical and pharmaceutical research, as it helps both physicians and researchers understand how well drugs, supplements, and even food will be absorbed by our bodies.
Bioavailability plays a key role in determining how much of an effect certain medications and nutrients will have on our bodies. For example, some medications must be taken with food because they require lipids for absorption while other drugs are better absorbed when taken without meals. Similarly, some supplements have higher bioavailability than others – meaning more of their active ingredients are available for use by your body’s systems once they enter the bloodstream.
Supplements such as IOSTRIPS™ employ a sublingual delivery system; these strips dissolve quickly on your tongue and allow their active ingredients to pass into your buccal membrane (the inside lining of your mouth) where they are then easily absorbed into systemic circulation without having passing through digestion or being processed – thus providing enhanced bioavailability for faster uptake into the body’s systems undiluted. This type of delivery system is beneficial both for those wanting quick results from taking nutritional supplements, as well as those whose digestive systems may not properly absorb all nutrients from dietary sources alone due to diseases such as malabsorption syndromes or celiac disease.
