Oral Absorption in Health Care Concepts
Introducing Spray Vitamin Technology
Oral Absorption has been used in medicine for decades. With modern technology, a highly developed microliter pump can deliver powerful nutritive sprays directly to the highly absorptive inner lining of your mouth.
For the first time, natural nutrients are delivered into the blood stream bypassing the G.I. tract and without all the extras, such as shellac, talc, waxes, colouring, etc., associated with pills. These extras are not present in an oral spray. The extra saliva from sublingual and the local concentration of an injection are also absent. We do not need extra waste or discomfort added to our already nutrient depleted diet.
Our soils are bombarded with chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and fungicides. Our top soil is diminishing and losing nutritive power. Irradiation and processing drains nutrients to the point where we have to add vitamins and minerals back into our food. The solution to replacing the life-sustaining nutrients lost in our present diet is simple - oral absorption - the latest in nutrient absorption. A nutrient spray is fast, effective and safe.
Some of the many benefits of oral absorption are: Purity - Because of the fast penetration of the sprays, extra ingredients - even the very simple ones - would hinder and block the absorption process. Thus, pure, natural vitamins and minerals are necessary to maintain the high, 85-90% absorption ratio. The purity of the formulations also reduces allergic reactions, and since it does not pass through the gastrointestinal tract, the indigestion and gas discomfort resulting from taking pills are eliminated.
Convenience - If vitamins are not easy to take, you won't take them. Aches and pains will diminish with therapy, but the quiet building of nutritional well-being takes time and is not easily recognizable. There is a body flush every four hours. Who wants to take pills, seek out a beverage to take them with, and then try and swallow and keep them down, just to maintain high levels of nutrients? Sprays fit into any schedule and can be taken anywhere.
Efficiency - Emerging from a closed and sealed environment through a microliter spray, the fine mist gently coats and penetrates the inner lining of your mouth. These capillary rich tissues then distribute the nutrition throughout the system in a fast and efficient manner. Because they are stored in a closed, oxygen-free environment, there is no deterioration due to the effects of air or light. The penetration of the nutrient mist over the lining of your mouth reduces the saliva wash of sublingual methods and the dilution and pollution of pills in the gastrointestinal tract. The result: a simple transformation of nutritive supplementation into nurturing energy.
Safety - Sprays will not hinder daily tasks, such as driving, using machinery and mental activity. There are no additives or extras to cause any problems.
With all of these advantages, oral absorption is definitely the "new wave" in vitamin and nutrient delivery, making nutrient sprays state-of-the-art supplementation.
According to the prestigious Physicians' Desk Reference for Non-prescription Drugs and Dietary Supplements, oral absorption (spraying into the mouth and swallowing) is much more efficient than other forms of delivery, with the nutrients being rapidly absorbed by the lining of the mouth, called the buccal mucosa. The process of oral absorption is simple:

It's the fastest, most effective and convenient way to get a daily dose of the essential nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. In fact, this unique delivery system is supported by the Physicians' Desk Reference for Non-prescription Drugs and Dietary Supplements ½ as the best way to reach the nutritional supplement levels your body demands.
How are pills, tablets and caplets made?
These days, the majority of medications are in the form of pills, tablets, caplets, capsules or soft gels. In the case of tablets, manufacturers have standard size molds for the precise size of their pill. During the manufacturing process, in addition to the active ingredients, the manufacturer will usually add a variety of other ingredients to take up space, hold the ingredients together, and assist in disintegration. It may even be necessary to coat the tablet so that the taste and odor are masked (coatings).
Fillers are necessary for the manufacturing process, but do nothing more for the pill itself than take up volume. The pill must be large enough for human fingers to handle easily. Even some small pills are quite a bit larger than the active ingredients they contain. Some common fillers are lactose (milk sugar), microcrystalline cellulose, corn starch, sugars (including sucrose, mannitol, sorbitol, fructose, and dextrose), whey and yeast. Binders are used to make the components stick together when the ingredients are compressed to make the pill. Some common binders are povidone, xanthan gum and Carbopol (an acrylic resin). Some fillers may also serve as binding agents and are referred to as filler/binders.
Disintegrants facilitate the breakdown of the tablet in the stomach. Crospovidone, croscarmellose sodium, and gellan gum are commonly used to help break up the pill in your digestive system.
Coatings help to prevent the tablet from dissolving too soon, thus breaking up in your mouth. They may also prevent you from tasting or smelling the active ingredients. A typical coating is shellac - the same as used on wood floors and boats! Time-release capsules contain a variety of micro-pills designed to dissolve in the stomach at different times. Each micro-pill has a little bit of active ingredient and fillers coated with a mixture of shellac and other compounds. The precise nature of the chemicals used in the coating controls the time the micro-pill takes to dissolve in the stomach.

Other ingredients, such as lubricants, colorants, flavors (in chewable tablets) and plasticizers, may also be used. Lubricants include magnesium stearate, stearic acid, sodium stearyl fumarate and hydrogenated vegetable oil. Lubricants help the tablet mass to compress without sticking to the wall of the mold. The molds may also be sprayed with a releasing agent such as polyethylene glycol, which is another form of wax or grease to allow the pill to drop out of the mold. A variety of colorants may be used depending on the color of the tablet. Colorants or pigments include titanium dioxide (white) and iron oxides (red or yellow). Plasticizers increase the flexibility of coatings so that they don't crack or chip. (You've probably noticed how small amounts of material will rub or chip off uncoated tablets, simply through handling of the pill bottle.) In order to be acceptable for use in nutraceutical products, all the excipients used must be listed in either the USP (US Pharmacopeia) or NF (National Formulary) for products sold in the USA, or the EP (European Pharmacoepia) for products sold in Europe. The acceptable added ingredients are usually either food products like lactose, sugar or starch, or chemically inert ingredients that pass through the body without any effect like povidone, cellulose or titanium dioxide.
Normal tablets must meet U. S. Pharmaceutical standards here or European standards in Europe. This means the tablets must dissolve within 15 to 30 minutes once in your stomach. To check your tablets, place white vinegar (to simulate the stomach acid) in a bowl or glass, and drop in your pill. Check periodically. To meet standards, the pill should dissolve within 15 to 30 minutes. If it doesn't, then you are paying a high price for fillers! You can keep this test up for 45 to 60 minutes, but if the pill is not dissolved by then, it is highly unlikely to be of any value to your body.
What are by-products?
By-products are second-hand substances derived from an original product. Brewer's Yeast is a leftover from the making of beer (where yeast is used to ferment the sugar). Many companies take these secondary products, put them in a white plastic bottle with a few other ingredients and label them with sensational sounding names - but usually they are just waste products with little nutritional value. They may list the percentage of each component, but dirt is high in mineral contents too! Would you pay money for dirt?
