Many people today are making their own supplements and herbal remedies at home rather than going to a pharmacy. These supplements and remedies are usually placed into gelatin capsules for easier digestion and safety.
Gelatin capsules, also known as soft gels, have an outer coating or shell containing the active ingredient and any filler. The interior ingredients must be in the form of a liquid, paste or suspension, which has small particles of the active ingredient suspended in liquid. The shell is made of gelatin, usually derived from beef or pork, along with water and a plasticizing agent such as glycerin to provide durability with flexibility. Gelatin capsules have advantages for both the drug and supplement manufacturer and the consumer.
Not only are gelatin capsules easier to digest, they can increase the bioavailability of poorly absorbed or poorly soluble nutrients, are hermetically sealed and airtight, and have a smooth texture for better swallowing. For anyone who wants to use a capsule creator, using gelatin capsules is the right choice.
Once the capsule is made with your herbs, powders, and other medicines they are sealed tight with the help of a capsule maker. This is great for home care, home remedies, and healthier living.
