PILL POP­PER TO DROPPER

ZOOMER Magazine - - ZOOM IN - —TL

Hav­ing trou­ble swal­low­ing that mul­ti­vi­ta­min? You’re not alone. It’s es­ti­mated that 20 per cent of peo­ple over the age of 50 have difficulty swal­low­ing (dys­pha­gia). It can be a side-ef­fect of con­di­tions in­clud­ing stroke, chronic ner­vous sys­tem dis­eases and surgery to the head and neck. Changes re­lated to aging can also be a fac­tor. They in­clude re­duced strength of the throat mus­cles and tongue as well as a de­crease in the size of the esoph­a­gus open­ing, which in par­tic­u­lar makes swal­low­ing solids and pills more dif­fi­cult. Sup­ple­ments in the form of liq­uids can be a good al­ter­na­tive. Ot­tawa-based com­pany Cof­fee
