ORO-EASE® : A Unique Technology of Active Micro-Granules
EUPEPTIS has developed an ORO-EASE® Active Micro-Granule Technology which combines two advantages :
1. Convenience and comfort of use for the patients :
– The size and shape of our Active Micro-Granules easy swallowing * without effort by the patient even for large doses of active ingredients. This is a significant advantage in comparison with conventional dosage forms (i.e. tablets, capsules) which may induce significant swallowing problems in dysphagic patients.
– In addition, the high density of the Micro-Granules is compatible with compact single-dose sticks for rapid intake of the product without the need for a glass of water. The practicality of this presentation is particularly useful for active people.
*Note that dysphagia (swallowing disorder) concerns more than 30%* of the population, this incidence being particularly marked in children and people over 50 years old. In the cases of highly dosed medicines which require repeated administrations, dysphagia can be a real issue and a problem of medical adherence.
2. Targeted delivery for enhanced efficiency :
– ORO-EASE Active Micro-Granules contain a natural biopolymer (from plants) slowly degraded by the intestinal microbiota which gradually releases the active ingredients in the GI tract. The metabolism of this biopolymer by the intestinal microbiota has two effects :
Pre-biotic effect : the natural polymer is able to promote the selective growth of beneficial bacteria and involves the development of a balanced microbiota, contributing to a better digestion
Post-biotic effect : the metabolism of the natural polymer by the microbiota generates Short Chain Fatty Acids which exert a favorable action on the intestinal cells and contribute to the good regulation of the gut transit
