Lozenges are a form of nutritional supplement that skips passage through the gastrointestinal tract and liver altogether. The active ingredient comes into contact with saliva and is absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the palate.
Lozenges are a welcomed alternative to vitamin injections, and their popularity has soared in recent years. Especially now that we known more about the uptake and processing of vitamins and other active substances by the body do Lozenges seem like good means of substance intake.
Lozenges are commonly used for substances such as:
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin D3
- Co enzyme Q10 / Ubiquinol
- Specific probiotics
- Substances with poor resistance to stomach acid
