A softgel is a gelatin-based shell with a liquid fill surrounding the ingredients claimed on the product label.
Capsules are gaining popularity because they are absorbed faster than tablets. Capsules provide an almost odorless shell that is easier to swallow. There are two different types of capsules which are empty gelatin capsules and HPMC capsules. The traditional advantages of capsules are that they are often odorless, easier to swallow, require no fillers, and have a rapid absorption rate.
Despite being nearly identical in appearance, there are a few differences that set them apart. Gelatin capsules are derived from bovine or porcine animal parts. It also makes it difficult for people who do not eat pork for religious reasons (such as the kosher diet) to get the supplements they need to supplement their diet.
Vegetarian capsules provide another option for those who do not want to take supplements in gelatin. Vegetarian capsules even offer benefits to customers who have no ethical qualms about pork consumption.
The advantage of vegetarian capsules over gelatin capsules, in addition to being suitable for different lifestyles and diets, is that gelatin capsules are less tolerant to heat and humidity than vegetarian capsules. Therefore, gelatin capsules do not provide stability when stored for extended periods of time.
Another advantage of vegetable cellulose capsules over gelatin is the rate at which it dissolves in the stomach. Vegetarian capsules dissolve faster and can release their contents to be consumed by the body at a more efficient rate.
Today, people are changing their lifestyles and switching to vegetarian or vegan diets. Going on a non-meat diet may make it difficult for them to consume dietary supplements encapsulated in gelatin capsules.
