The answer to this question is bioavailability, but let’s dive deeper into what that means:
Bioavailability refers to the rate and the degree to which a substance is absorbed into the body. Sublingual (under the tongue) absorption generally has high bioavailability, whereas absorption through the digestive system generally has lower bioavailability.
When CBD is swallowed, it comes into contact with digestive enzymes that are meant to break it down. However, we can increase the bioavailability when the Drops absorb under the tongue, as it allows the CBD to bypass the digestive process and go directly into the bloodstream.
Should you decide to swallow the Daily Drops rather than letting them absorb under the tongue, we recommend mixing your Drops into a healthy fat such as nut or seed butter, and swallowing the two mixed together. The Daily Drops could also be mixed into a protein shake or smoothie that contains a healthy fat as well!
