What Are Capsules?
The capsule is one of the most popular delivery methods for vitamins and supplements. Consisting of two halves, the capsule design allows one half to fit inside the other half to form an airtight closure. The ingredients in a capsule product are enclosed within an outer shell that is intended to break down as it moves through the digestive tract after ingestion. During digestion, the capsule’s content enters the bloodstream to be distributed and metabolized.
Capsules can either contain liquid or powder/pellet materials. The outside of a hard-shelled capsule consists of two halves. One half fits inside the other to form a closed casing. The airtight quality of the capsule allows brands to fit more than one active ingredient within a single pill. This is one of the reasons why capsules are often preferred when formulating dual-action or time-released products. Here’s a look at the benefits of using capsules when manufacturing vitamins and supplements:
- Effectiveness – The enhanced bioavailability provided by capsules makes them a better value for customers because it allows for more of the vitamin or supplement to enter the bloodstream.
- Potency – Capsules are liked by customers because they allow for fast absorption
- Palatability – Capsules are free of flavor.
- Efficiency – Capsules work quickly.
- Safety – The tamper-resistant design of capsules makes it difficult to split or crush them outside of a home or hospital environment.
- Customization – While capsules impede tampering, they can be opened by customers looking to split dosages. They also offer an ideal format for sprinkling supplements or vitamins into foods and beverages.
Capsules can be made using a variety of substances. Generally, supplement and vitamin brands choose gelatin-based capsules sourced from animal products. Non-gelatin capsules are usually made from hydrolyzed collagen that has been broken down for optimal absorption in the body.
While capsules offer many benefits, some brands choose softgels over capsules due to limitations that don’t work for their specific products. As one of the world’s leading capsule manufacturing companies, NutraPak USA can help you discover capsule alternatives that make your product as marketable and palatable as possible for your core market.
Capsule Manufacturing Process
How do supplements, vitamins, and other products get into capsules? Capsule production and filling happens as part of an agreement between a brand and order-fulfillment facility. A brand brings its formulation to a third-party company with the facility, technology, and capabilities to fulfill orders. When selecting a facility, it’s important to weight the following factors:
- Rules for minimum orders
- Turnaround time
- Capsule types available
- Availability of packaging and fulfillment services
- Quality and compliance
There are actually several methods for having products made under your brand’s label. In many cases, well-recognized supplement brands conduct all production and packaging at third-party facilities. These same services are also available to small, independent wellness brands. It’s even possible to bring a product to market using full-service manufacturing, warehousing, labeling, and marketing.
