Crocin Advance gets to work in 5 minutes1
Gamma scintigraphic images (scinitigraphy is a form of radio-imaging or scanning that involves injecting a radioisotope that emits gamma rays, into a patient’s vein, which is captured as images)10 of the stomach showed that Crocin Advance with Optizorb technology disintegrates 25% faster than standard paracetamol tablets (within 5 minutes).1
From 20 minutes, it is fully disintegrated and available for absorption from the intestine, while standard paracetamol tablets have yet to leave the stomach.1
Crocin Advance absorbs twice as fast11 †
This was a pharmacokinetic study of 76 healthy adults of replicate dosing of Crocin Advance or standard paracetamol tablets (1000 mg dose) administered on 4 separate days.11 The average concentration of paracetamol in plasma at 10, 20 and 30 minutes for Crocin Advance was 1.62; 3.26; 4.93 vs. 0.69; 1.8; 2.82 for standard paracetamol tablets. This means that the concentration of paracetamol at 10, 20 and 30 minutes in subjects taking Crocin Advance was 134%, 81% and 75% higher than those that ingested standard paracetamol tablets.11
