Empty enteric capsules wholesale need to know about enteric capsules, the following is a detailed introduction to it.
Enteric Capsules - ACID RESISTANT
Enteric capsules, also known as extended-release capsules, are uniquely designed to resist the acidic environment of the human stomach during the digestive process until they reach the next step of digestion. Enteric capsules are treated with a material to prevent or minimize dissolution This type of formulation either shield the stomach from a potentially irritating drug or shields the drug from partial degradation in the acidic environment of the stomach.
The History of Enteric Capsules
Enteric formulas were initially created to manage medicine that had a foul taste or caused gastric discomfort to the consumer. If patients were unable to take a medicine without vomiting due to its awful aftertaste, the patient couldn't be treated. Early attempts to find the solution to this issue consisted of using substances that aren't affected by stomach acids such as fats, waxes, and paraffin.
How do Enteric Capsules Work?
Enteric capsules work by utilizing the different acidic and alkaline pH characteristics of the different parts of the human digestive tract. The human body’s overall pH hovers around the neutral range of 7, but different parts of the body have varying internal pH levels.
The human stomach is acidic, with a pH of 1.5-3.5. This high level of acidity is what enables your stomach to break down the foods you eat for proper digestion.
After the stomach, the acidity decreases to an almost neutral level in the duodenum, before the pH increases in the small intestine to the slightly alkaline pH of 7.4. Enteric capsules are made with plant-derived HPMC and HPMCP, the latter is the enteric ingredient that only breaks down in environments with a pH of 5.5 or higher, allowing the capsule to pass through the acidic environment of the stomach (pH of 1.5-3.5) without dissolving.
In other words, this means that they pass through the stomach intact, and then dissolve approximately one to two hours after ingestion when they reach the alkaline environment of the small intestine.
Enteric capsules come with many benefits to their consumers and allow the release of medications and supplements after the stomach into the intestines.
