Analysis

Conventional capsules are extensively used in medicines, which are consumed orally. These capsules are generally of two types—gelatin-based and non-gelatin based. Gelatin capsules have a shell and filler within. The ingredients inside are either in the form of a paste, suspension, or liquid. It has tiny particles of active ingredients within, which are also called ”soft gels.” The shell is generally derived from beef or pork and is bound by a dispersant like glycerin. This provides flexibility and durability. These medicines are not ingested in the system and dissolve easily in the stomach. Patients prefer capsules as they are easier to swallow than tablets and do not have a bad taste or odor. The non-gelatin based capsules are not made from animal by-products and are more acceptable by some sections of society. They are highly stable and have low-moisture content. Capsules have a wide range of health benefits, especially for improvements in joint and skin conditions.
