How to use enlyten strips
I have read all sorts of comments from enlyten distributors who have no idea how to use enlyten strips. Most distributors just say to put it on your tongue which is by far the worst thing you should do. The strips are designed to be absorbed through the cheek and gum (buccal mucosa). When the strips are placed on the tongue, a large percentage of the active ingredients are swallowed, defeating the purpose of the strips unique supplement delivery method.
The optimal way to take an enlyten strip is to fold the strip length wise so it is long and skinny. With the folded strip on your index finger, apply the strip to the upper right or upper left of your mouth between your cheek and gum and above your teeth. This is the placement for optimal absorption of the active ingredients and allows you to eat and drink without interfering with the strip. You can insert two strips at once (one on each side of the mouth) to double your dosage.
This information was provided to me by an athletic trainer for a Big 10 football team. These were the instructions provided to the players during the initial product trials before the enlyten became available to the general public in early 2007.
