For Patients


Caring for a loved one is as rewarding as it is challenging. We understand that. For carers, anything that promises to ease their workload and smooth out the day to day can only be a good thing.

And, for those in need of care, a little help with life’s daily struggles goes a long way.

Often, those in our care can find taking their essential medications yet another hurdle to overcome. And, for the carer, another challenge they have to face. Day in, day out.

In short – problems swallowing tablets can seriously affect your loved one’s quality of life.

Give Gloup a try. It may just provide a little respite along the way.


Why choose Gloup®?

It’s important to know that the person you’re caring for receives their medication in the most effective way. But crushing or mixing tablets with food or removing the outer shell from capsules can negatively affect how they’re absorbed in the body.

  • Gloup is simple
    Gloup’s solution is simplicity itself. A lightweight, smooth gel, it allows tablets to be swallowed as easily as a spoonful of yoghurt, or a sip of soup. It simply covers the tablet on the spoon, to allow for its safe transportation - so it can get to work in the way it was designed to.
  • Gloup is safe
    Gloup has no known interactions with medication, is made of 100% natural ingredients all certified ‘food grade’, and biodegrades harmlessly in the stomach. Gloup does not contain gluten or lactose.
  • Gloup is stress-free
    Gloup is designed to address the stress and discomfort so many of us face when suffering from a fear of taking oral medicines, or living with a condition that physically makes swallowing difficult: such as Parkinson's, dysphagia or following a stroke.

Who can use Gloup®?

There are lots of reasons why, at some time, many of us experience the inability to swallow medicines (or foods or liquids) with ease. Medically, this condition is known as dysphagia. It isn’t always permanent, but it’s often distressing. Gloup is designed to help anyone for whom swallowing is difficult.

  • People with learning difficulties can often have difficulty following instructions on how to take their medicines. Often, those with a physical disability such as cerebral palsy find swallowing difficult too.
  • Swallowing problems are very common after a stroke. Almost half of people who have a stroke will have some difficulties in the first few months.
  • Stress or anxiety may cause some people to feel tightness in the throat. This condition, known as globus sensation, can make swallowing more difficult.
  • Dementia can cause some particularly challenging issues around swallowing and chewing, and can make it difficult to take oral medication.
  • Some cancers, such as mouth, oesophageal and stomach cancer can cause problems with swallowing.
  • When we get older, our mouths produce less saliva - the body’s natural ‘lubricant’ to aid swallowing - which makes taking oral medications much more of a trial.
  • Many of us just have an inbuilt fear of swallowing medication (a condition that affects an estimated one in three of us at one time or another).


If you're using Gloup for the first time, we recommend you simply try some of the gel on its own, from a spoon. Once you’re familiar with the feel, taste and texture of the gel, and can swallow it comfortably, you’re good to go!

Start with a single tablet and dispense around 5ml of the gel (about a teaspoon’s amount), or enough to fully cover your tablet. Don’t worry if you need more, or prefer to use a bigger spoon. The amount of gel can be increased or reduced without affecting your medication. Simply swallow your spoonful of Gloup and medication in one easy mouthful.

Place the tablet on the spoon
Apply approximately 5ml of gel onto the spoon, covering the tablet.
Place the spoon in the mouth swallow everything in one go.
