Effervescent delivery systems can provide a number of advantages, including possible improved bioavailability and faster onset of therapeutic action. These convenient dosage forms are fast dissolving and highly soluble. For example, effervescent tablets provide a means of accelerating drug absorption by quickly releasing the drug into a soluble form that can be ingested conveniently with a more rapid onset of action. For these reasons, this delivery form is popular for many pharmaceutical products such as antacids, analgesics, and cough/cold formulations.
The Effer-Soda Advantage:
Effer-Soda is a highly stable free flowing powder which is highly compactable, requiring less binder.
It effectively protects against premature effervescence by reducing the moisture sensitivity of the formulation. This is accomplished through a proprietary process that modifies the surface of the particles resulting in improved stability and the elimination of an early effervescent reaction.
Effer-Soda allows for manufacturing in conditions with limited humidity control and can reduce processing steps and costs for effervescent tablets and powders.
