Enteric Vegetarian Capsules
Vegetarian Enteric Capsules are Here!
Coated, acid-resistant (enteric) capsules are now available in joined vegetarian capsules in sizes 0 and 00.
Our acid-resistant (enteric) vegetarian capsules are coated with a special, polymer-free all-vegetarian film that protects them from gastric acid upon consumption. This allows the capsules to bypass the strong acids of the stomach and break down to release the contents in the small intestines. The PH level of the small intestines, which is approximately 6.8-7, triggers the decomposition of the capsule around 120 minutes after ingestion. The all-vegetarian coating also makes the capsules easier to swallow.
