Supplements make up for deficiencies in our diet and give our body a regular supply of all the nutrients it needs. While supplements can be consumed in the form of tablets, capsules and even tonics, orally disintegrating strips (ODS) are the latest and best way to consume them. Want to know why? Read on to find out.


Advantages of orally disintegrating strips

Orally dissolving strips or mouth dissolving strips do what their name suggests – they dissolve in the mouth, or to be specific, when placed on the tongue. Your saliva causes the strips to disintegrate and the medicinal components in the strips are absorbed into your body through the cells inside your mouth.

ODS have many benefits over tablets and capsules which are:

Faster absorption: ODS dissolve quickly in the mouth and their medicinal components get absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Since the drug doesn’t pass through the liver, as is the case  when you consume a tablet, the “bioavailability” of the drug remains unaltered. This means that your body derives all the benefits the drug has to offer.

Dissolves quickly without water: Since ODS dissolve with the help of your saliva, you don’t need to drink water or any other liquid to consume them. So mouth dissolving strips are great for people who worry about choking while swallowing a tablet or capsule.

Portable: The strips are very convenient to carry around as they are thin and neatly packaged. Their compact design ensures that they  take up much less space in your bag or luggage than tablets or tonics would.

No side effects: Because ODS dissolve quickly, they tend not to cause side effects like acidity or ulcers as some other medications do.
