Effervescent tablets are becoming increasingly popular in a variety of sectors including supplements and pharmaceutical use due to the ease in which they can be consumed.
Effervescent tablets are designed to break in contact with liquid such as water or juice, often causing the tablet to dissolve into a solution. This makes effervescent tablets the preferred choice of many, including people who are taking tablets medicinally as well as a dietary supplement.
Here we look at 5 benefits of effervescent tablets over regular tablets.
Pleasant Taste Compared to Regular Tablets
Effervescent tablets are so popular due to the fact they can be dissolved in a liquid such as water or fruit juice, meaning that they often taste better than regular tablets. Conventional tablets dissolve slowly which can result in reduced absorption rates, effervescent tablets, in contrast, dissolve quickly and completely, meaning you get the full benefit from the ingredients.
Distributed More Evenly
Conventional tablets dissolve gradually in the stomach once ingested and can sometimes only partially dissolve which can lead to irritation in some cases. The benefit of effervescent tablets is that they dissolve completely and evenly meaning that localised concentrations of the ingredients cannot occur. This means not only a better taste but also less chance of irritation and a more efficient means of ingesting the ingredients.
Increased Liquid Intake
Effervescent tablets provide the nutritional benefits intended, but in addition to this they also increase liquid intake. This can be especially beneficial if you are dehydrated or ill and not ingesting as much fluid as usual. Effervescent tablets can be a fantastic way of rehydrating as well as reaping the benefits you are taking the tablets for whether this is a dietary supplement, herbally or medicinally.
Easy Alternative to Regular Tablets
They can be a great alternative for those who may have trouble swallowing either due to illness or age. Older individuals may have difficulty swallowing but need to take medication or supplements on a regular basis and in this respect, effervescent tablets can be a lot easier than having to swallow a tablet.
In addition to this, they can be a great way of ingesting medicine for individuals with sore throats or medical issues that make swallowing difficult and so are a viable alternative to regular tablets.
Simple and Easy to Measure
Effervescent tablets are easily dissolved into water or a liquid of your choice and then after a while are consistent, well mixed and ready to drink. Traditional tablets or powders, however, need to be measured and stirred in repeatedly to avoid an inconsistent drink with lumpy bits.
Even with stirring and measuring it is common to have an inconsistent drink with lumpy bits and an odd taste and this is where effervescent tablets are more efficient. Simply drop them in and they dissolve fully and evenly ensuring you get all the benefits of the tablet, as well as being able to comfortably drink it.
To Sum Up
Effervescent tablets are becoming increasingly popular and it is easy to see why. They provide a much more efficient way of taking supplements or medication due to being distributed evenly and much more quickly than regular tablets. In addition to this, they taste better as can be added to water or a liquid drink of your choice as well as being easier to take for people who may find it difficult to swallow.
All these factors combine to make effervescent tablets a very popular choice for those taking tablets for either dietary supplementation or medicinal reasons.
