Capsules Versus Tablets: Our Philosophy
Our team firmly believes that any vitamin or supplement should offer reliable nutritional and health benefits to the end user. This is why you might have observed that we prefer capsules over tablets. What are some of the advantages associated with a capsule and why might this variant be the best choice for your requirements? Let’s take an unbiased look at these questions in order to understand the big picture.
The Physical Qualities of Tablets and Capsules
One of the major disadvantages associated with tablets is the simple fact that they need to be held together by some type of bonding agent. Thus, they often contain many other ingredients other than the primary active chemical. Let’s also not fail to mention that such a quality can affect taste and absorption rates.
Our capsules do not contain any type of binding agent within their formulation. In other words, you are getting exactly what is needed; nothing more and nothing less. In the event that a filler is required, we only utilise rice flour. This substance contains a neutral pH and it will have absolutely no impact upon the active ingredients.
A Question of Functionality
Many individuals can encounter difficulties when trying to swallow a larger tablet. While there is no doubt that tablets are available in a host of sizes and configurations, taste and odour might present issues to anyone with a sensitive stomach. Another factor to take into account involves the coatings present on some tablets. Some individuals could be sensitive or even allergic to these surfaces. Capsules are not associated with any type of additional coating.
On the contrary, our capsules have no smell or taste. In the event that they are still tricky to swallow, they can always be opened; allowing users to pour the powdered contents into a drink. There is likewise no need to be concerned about common indigestion problems.
What About Absorption Rates?
Many will cite the fact that capsules are often absorbed more readily after being ingested. However, faster absorption rates might not always be the most appropriate.
This can sometimes hamper the ability of the body to access the nutrients. This is the very same reason why time-release supplements are often preferred.
Why Consider a Capsule when Taking a Vitamin Supplement?
Let’s quickly list a handful of advantages when taking capsules:
- Gelatin exteriors will protect the interior from oxygen.
- Different formulations can be created.
- The powder can be removed from a capsule if needed.
- Capsules are easy to ingest.
- No odours or tastes (reducing the chances of an upset stomach).
- Fat- and oil-soluble nutrients.
Having said this, a tablet might not properly dissolve and the techniques employed during its manufacture could change the active ingredients via moisture or heat.
There are advantages and disadvantages to every type of supplement. Our main intention is to provide you with high-quality capsules in order to obtain the nutrition that you deserve.
