_ WHAT IS GLOUP®?
Gloup® is a medication lubricant gel that has been designed to break down immediately once in the stomach, therefore having minimal or no impact on absorption.
At least 4 out of 10 people face problems with the intake of oral medication. Not just children or the elderly, but people of all ages can be affected.
Using food is a common practice, however it has an impact on the dissolution of the medication. For example, when paracetamol is taken with yoghurt, studies have shown that only around 40%
has been dissolved at 30 minutes. This means that your patient/resident may not be getting the correct dose at the right time.
Gloup® is a simple solution that does not impact the medication, so you are guaranteed to get the right dosage.

Alex (11 years old) was really afraid to swallow his antibiotics. By using Gloup for the intake the actual swallow became much easier, as he no longer experienced the fear of the pill getting stuck in his throat. He swallowed them for 7 days without issues.
Never expected to be able to stop crushing my medication. As a Parkinson patient I administered my Levodopa crushed and with apple sauce. With the use of Gloup I no longer have to crush my pills and I swallow my medication much easier and safer.
