How Do You Use Gloup?
Gloup works by acting as lubricant between the mouth and the medication. Its jelly like texture allows the medication to stay within it while the swallowing action is performed.
The flavour in the mouth is that of the gel which is far more pleasant than the medication itself. This stops people being put off by the unpleasant tastes of certain powder coated tablets.
The slippery texture of the gel allows medication to be swallowed easily from a spoon, once moving down the throat, gravity will move the gel into the stomach which greatly reduces the unpleasant feeling of having medication stuck in the back of the throat.
Once in the stomach it dissolves almost instantly allowing the medication to be absorbed naturally at the intended rate.
Who Would Use Gloup?
Many people of all ages have a real struggle when it comes to taking solid dose medications, whether that be tablets, pill or capsules. Making sure we take our medication as effectively as possible is very important to how the medicine will perform inside our body.
- Fears and Phobias - It's not surprising that many of us simply can’t overcome the fear of swallowing tablets. From an evolutionary point of view, we’re not designed to swallow solid objects. That’s why we have a gag reflex, to protect foreign objects from entering our airways.
- Parkinsons - Difficulties in swallowing medication can arise from the effects of medical conditions like Parkinson’s, when the muscles involved in swallowing are compromised. Some people with the condition also are unable to produce the saliva that aids in swallowing too.
- Other medical conditions - Conditions such as stroke, cancer and multiple sclerosis can reduce the ability to swallow normally or can increase the amount of medication required on a daily basis.
- Children - When children move from liquid to solid dose medication it can be a very daunting and stressful time. Children can develop a fear of choking which will put them off taking medication causing a difficult struggle for the parent. In some cases, the taste of the medication will be off-putting too.
- The Elderly - Ageing can affect our ability to swallow. From missing teeth or shifting tooth positions to general loss of muscle strength and dry mouth, dysphagia (the medical term for the phenomena) swallowing function can deteriorate with age.

Made All The Difference! , Heritage Healthcare Gloucester
I just wanted to let you know what a difference it has made to a 94 year old client of ours.
She struggles with her daily tablets following a stroke a few years ago and often ends up coughing and spluttering. She started trying Gloup a week ago and “thinks it’s wonderful” I asked her what a difference it had made and she said “all the difference, I used to feel them stuck at the back of my throat and was worried I would choke, now they just go down”
I will also have no hesitation to suggest it to any others who struggle with swallowing their medication.
Kathy , Great for Dyspraxia
Gloup makes such a difference when trying to swallow tablets.
I have had two Spinal operations that left swallowing tablets a challenge, it took a while to get used to the tablets being coated as I usually move them around my mouth before being able to swallow and then they got stuck in my throat.
Gloup has made such an amazing difference and it has a nice flavour, I highly recommend it!
Mother and Son, Highly Recommend
My Son has autism and dyspraxia, he really struggles with tablets.
He is 11 years old and is now prescribed with tablets as they are the cheaper option. We have been using Gloup and it has been great to work with as his tablets slide down with no complaints anymore. Would highly recommend it.
Angela Amison, Great Product For All Ages
This is a great product to aid dementia sufferers to take their medication. If they fail to swallow their tablets it causes great stress and puts them off taking any future tablets. This avoids this and makes the carers life so much easier.
Also great for swallowing prescription paracetamols which seem so much more difficult to swallow. My mother who is 80, found this no longer a problem when they were taken with Gloup.
