So how do they work?
The ingredients include a range of essential oils derived from natural sources which act via aromatherapy and taste receptors to inhibit negative taste sensations and calm the stomach. Specific tastes have been found to affect the nervous pathways stemming from the cranial nerves and research is ongoing into specific flavour stimulation of the trigeminal nerve associated with nausea relief.
They also help to eliminate the horrible dry mouth feeling that can accompany nausea, in addition to providing a much needed energy boost and something soothing and comforting to suck.
