About Capsule Manufacturing
Capsules are shells or containers made of gelatin containing a dietary supplement or OTC drug. Hard capsules are made up of a stiff shell in two pieces that are filled with the substance and fit together.
Some advantages to hard capsules include quicker effect compared to other forms and more effective absorption. Capsules can be manufactured in smaller, easier to swallow sizes due to their more effective absorption requiring a lower dose.
These forms are suitable for substances that have an unpleasant taste or odor, as they have the ability to minimize the odor of certain ingredients. Capsules are visually appealing and can be produced in a wide range of colors and sizes to offer product differentiation. Hard shell capsules can be customized with a logo as well as text for a branding touch.
