Benefits Of Herbal Capsules – Vigorous Herbs
Another difference is the filling of Herbal capsules and their formation is carried out in just one stage of the technological process. In this process, two so-called gelatinous strips of molten gelatinous mass pass through a matrix drum, which forms capsules of a given shape and size. That is, two rotating drums form a capsule, which is immediately filled with a lipophilic solution/paste containing a drug substance.

There are several advantages that have provided Herbal capsules with the growth rate of their popularity in the world in recent times. These are their high bioavailability (digestibility) and marketing advantages. Herbal capsules demonstrate excellent bioavailability of medicinal substances, vitamins, minerals, herbal remedies when taken orally, as well as in the case of rectal administration.
These capsules contain a solution or a homogeneous suspension of the active substance, which is especially valuable for the production of dosage forms containing a small amount (small dosage) of API. The high bioavailability of the active substance in the form of Herbal capsules can become the basis for reducing the therapeutic dose, reducing and reducing possible side effects, and, of course, financial costs.
Medicines that are sensitive to the effects of oxygen, in the case of using the technology for the production of Herbal capsules, are protected from its effects, which makes it possible to increase the shelf life of the drug – vitamins and herbal products are an excellent example of this.
The development time of a Herbal capsule is lower than that of other dosage forms, due to the reduced risk that the dosage form will have low bioavailability. This ultimately reduces the cost of the product itself. The fast action is due to the short dissolution time of the capsule. This is one of the main benefits that can be used to improve the bioavailability of certain drugs. The assimilation time of the product in various versions of Herbal capsules is differentiated in the following sequence: emulsions, Herbal capsules (which are used for internal use, as chewable), capsules for external use (ophthalmic), suppositories.
The question you might be asking is why plant-based Herbal? The use of animal gelatin in the production of Herbal capsules can be a significant obstacle for many people and markets around the world due to issues of religion, regulatory, cultural, and personal preference when the consumption of animal products is unacceptable. The shell of such a capsule is made of seaweed extract and starch without glutin, as well as without modified sugars and dyes. It is essentially a vegetarian capsule. The advantages of vegetable-based herbal capsules are the complete absence of derivatives from animals (pork or beef), they are easy to swallow due to their soft and natural shell without a specific odor. In addition, such a casing will provide high stability over a wide range of temperatures and humidity.
In the process of production of Herbal capsules from vegetable raw materials, there are some difficulties and differences from the similar production of capsules from gelatin of animal origin.
Among the difficulties in using vegetable gelatin is its fragile structure (the capsule easily cracks, breaks, as a result of which the contents may leak); limited capsule size due to fragility (usually no more than 12 oval); restriction in the use of dyes and, as a result, fewer available color options for the dosage form; possible incompatibility between the drug and the shell, as a rule, occurs when powdered ingredients are added to a lipophilic solution intended for encapsulation in the form of a paste.
Currently, capsules that do not contain animal products are produced on the basis of starch, carrageenan, or carrageenan-starch mixture for the preparation of the shell. Now there are a large number of developments and patents in this area. The starch base for the preparation of the shell (potato or tapioca with Brazilian wax) has been successfully used to obtain small capsules. The addition of carrageenan to the mixture makes the casing slightly stronger than without it. Several Herbal companies have patented the use of a mixture of iota and kappa carrageenan, along with other ingredients (such as starch). This requires constant close cooperation and involvement of the consumer and the manufacturer. At the same time, the seller must be able to carry out continuous monitoring throughout the acceptance process. food additives class E) on labels that are used throughout the EU. Although E-numbers are used to identify not only harmful additives but also natural products, the consumer is used to perceive them negatively.
PLANT-BASED CAPSULES HAVE ALL THE ADVANTAGES OF A HIGHLY BIOAVAILABLE DOSAGE FORM WITH THE “NATURAL” INGREDIENTS OF THE CAPSULE ITSELF, WHICH ALSO ATTRACTS CONSUMERS WHO PAY ATTENTION TO “NATURALNESS” – VEGETARIANS AND THOSE WHO, DUE TO CULTURAL OR RELIGIOUS NEEDS, CANNOT CONSUME ANIMAL PRODUCTS ORIGIN.
I wonder what are key features that enable the growth of the Herbal capsule market. The current growing demand in the India, US, EU, and Asian markets for Herbal capsules is due to all of the above factors and food safety is one of the most important. Many of the food safety risks are associated with animal products, such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) or mad cow disease, transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE), or prion infection. The Asian market is promising, where a huge number of potential consumers do not consume animal products.
Also, Herbal capsules are the ideal form for releasing oils and poorly digestible foods in food supplements. The outer shell protects the active substance from external influences, and also thanks to it the capsule has a pleasant appearance and does not cause rejection by the consumer. The plant-based has a promising future due to its long shelf life and outdoor marketing appeal.
