Granules In Capsules
Capsules are available in Switzerland and EU
Many patients prefer capsules because they are tasteless. Compared to tablets or pills, capsules have the advantage that the granules are ideally distributed in the stomach and can be absorbed as soon as the coating dissolves. In contrast, pills or tablets which are pressed too hard can prevent full absorption of the active substances in the intestinal tract. It is often seen as a disadvantage that the capsules are very large, 23 mm long with a diameter of 8.5 mm (capsule size 00). And despite their size, each dose generally has to consist of several capsules, since the capacity per capsule is only 0.4 g. With a daily dosage of 6 g, for example, this means taking 15 capsules. We use only capsules made of cellulose (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose). They contain no sugar, soya or colouring, and no substances of animal origin. All your patients can take these capsules without any problem; there are no known intolerabilities.
