Sometimes we eat capsules when we are sick. Sometimes such a big medicine is difficult to swallow. What is the capsule shell made of? Why do you do that?
The gelatin capsules are made of edible-grade medicinal gelatin after finishing and auxiliary materials. Gelatin is a water-soluble protein extracted from animal skin and bones. It is a high-fat, high-protein, cholesterol-free, natural nutritional food thickener. After eating, it will neither make people fat nor cause physical decline. Gelatin is also a powerful protective colloid with strong emulsifying power.
Gelatin is used in many foods, such as puddings, sweets, preserves, chewable candies, icings, canned foods, and dips. In food, gelatin helps to coagulate, thicken, stabilize, and aerate and is a very popular, nutrient-dense, and low-fat food ingredient.
The capsule shell has good bioavailability and dissolves quickly, reliably, and safely. In medicine, empty capsules are mainly used to hold solid medicines, such as self-made powders, health care products, pharmaceuticals, etc. The capsule shell solves the problems of difficult entrance and poor taste for users and truly solves the problem of the bitter taste of good medicines. The gelatin capsule shell also has the effect of stabilizing the drug effect.
In real life, some people feel that the capsules are difficult to swallow, and sometimes pour out the powder of the capsules and then take them with water. These behaviors are not recommended by doctors, because some drugs are relatively irritating to the stomach, such as some enteric coatings. For tablets, because the gelatin in the capsule shell will not dissolve in gastric acid, the capsule will always encapsulate the drug and directly enter the intestinal tract, dissolve, and be absorbed in the intestinal tract, which is beneficial to protect the human stomach; in addition, the capsule shell can also play a slow-release effect. , reduce the stimulation of the drug to the human body.
