1. Better and quicker absorption
In water, soda, and fruit juices, effervescent tablets produce a pleasant tasting solution. This is due to organic fruit acids contained in the tablets. In conventional solid tablets, compounds dissolve slowly in the stomach, which frequently delays or reduces absorption. With effervescent tablets dissolved in a liquid, the ingredients are absorbed quickly, completely, and uniformly.
2. Optimal compatibility
After swallowing, conventional solid tablets or capsules are transported to the stomach where they dissolve gradually. The passage time varies in different people, depending on anatomical and physiological factors. In case of a longer passage time, solid dosage forms can dissolve partially and this may cause irritation of mucous membranes. With a dissolved effervescent tablet, the ingredients are evenly distributed in the solution, so that high, localized concentrations cannot occur. The solution of the effervescent tablet contains a balanced ratio of acids and carbonates. This balance is called a buffer.
3. Increase in liquid intake
Daily liquid consumption should be 1.5 – 2 liters in adults. Effervescent tablets provide both the nutritional value intended and additional liquid intake. And with increased intake required during excessive fluid loss caused by events such as intensive physical activity, diarrhea, or high temperatures in summer, the intake of dissolved effervescent tablets support the daily liquid supply.
4. Advantages in case of swallowing problems
Many people have problems swallowing solid tablets or capsules. Effervescent tablets are a good alternative for this population.
5. Simple handling and measuring into exact doses
Effervescent tablets can simply be dissolved in a glass of water, soda, or fruit juice – and after a short period of time a palatable solution is ready for drinking. This is a great advantage over having to dissolve granules or powders. Granules and instant powders must be measured first, then stirred in the glass several times to obtain a uniform solution. With effervescent tablets, the dose is standardized, and the liquid quantity is variable, allowing for taste to be adjusted according to individual preference.
