What is an Oral Thin Film strip?
Call it what you want; dissolvable strips, film strips, oral strips, medical strips, but the technical term is Oral Thin Film strips (OTF). OTF strips have been around for 15 years, however, it wasn't until recently that they advanced, and are now able to hold the high amount of nutraceutical and medicinal ingredients needed to be useful. OTF's are small, thin strips containing nutraceutical and/or medicinal ingredients. An OTF can be placed on the tongue or inside the cheek, where it dissolves within seconds. Once dissolved, it is absorbed into the oral mucosa of the cheek, which contains rich layers of cells and blood vessels. This area can pull the molecules of active ingredients into the bloodstream to be transported throughout your body.
What's special about OTF?
What makes an OTF strip so incredible is the way the active ingredients are absorbed into the body. It is absorbed primarily through the cheek, specifically the Buccal Mucosa which is the rich layer of cells and blood vessels. This area along with the sublingual area, which contains the major salivary glands, can pull the molecules of the active ingredient into the bloodstream incredibly fast. This results in very quick absorption of the active ingredients, ultimately creating faster impact and results. What this means for patients taking an OTF strip is the potential of relieving symptoms faster than a pill or liquid and in most cases without upsetting the stomach or Gastrointestinal tract (GI-tract).
Why is an OTF strip more ideal than a pill or liquid?
The answer is simple – it dissolves quickly, it tastes better, and it’s far easier to take than choking down a pill.
