Taking medicine is a pain for many people, especially some with obvious bitter and pungent tastes, and it is even more difficult to swallow. I believe many people have a deep understanding of this. Although good medicine is bitter if you can. Finding a way to make good medicine without bitterness is the best of both worlds. The advent of gelatin empty capsules has made this dream come true. Packing medicines into gelatin capsules are much more convenient to take, and there is no chance that the medicine will stick to the throat when it meets water. In this case, it can be said that the invention of gelatin capsules has brought good news to friends who are afraid of taking medicine. Today we will take a look at gelatin capsules in detail.
Gelatin capsules are hollow hard capsules made of gelatin and excipients. The shape of the capsule is slender and easy to swallow. It is the most popular dosage form for consumers; in addition, the capsule can effectively mask the unpleasant taste of the contents and The smell realizes that the good medicine is no longer bitter.
Capsules hold a variety of powders, liquids, semi-solids, and tablets. In addition, capsules have good bioavailability due to the rapid, reliable, and safe dissolution of the capsules.
Gelatin capsules are cylindrical, rigid, and elastic empty capsules consisting of a cap and body that can be retracted and locked. The capsule should be smooth, and uniform in color, with smooth incision, no deformation, and no odor. This product is divided into three types: transparent (both sections do not contain sunscreen), translucent (only one section contains sunscreen), and opaque (both sections contain sunscreen).
Most capsules are made of gelatin. Gelatin is used in many foods, such as puddings, sweets, preserves, chewable candies, icings, toppings, and dips. In food, gelatin helps to coagulate, thicken, stabilize, and aerate and is a very popular, nutrient-dense, and low-fat food ingredient. Gelatin itself is a water-soluble protein derived from collagen, the main natural protein component of connective tissue. Gelatin is obtained from the skin and bones of animals through a controlled extraction process. There are many types of gelatin. Capsules are made from pharmaceutical-grade gelatin that meets stringent requirements for use in pharmaceutical products. Capsules are made by forming a thin film of gelatin on a stainless steel mold. The gelatin film then dries and hardens to form a capsule, which is then removed from the mold. There are generally two sizes of molds, one for making the capsule body and the other for making the capsule cap with a larger diameter.
