Capsule Supplements

 

The production of nutritional supplements in capsule form is very popular today. One of the key reasons is that supplements in the form of capsules are extremely convenient for consumption. They provide the best route for one’s body to obtain the most nutrients to achieve the desired effectiveness in health.

 

At Absolute Nutraceutical, we are able to produce a variation of specifications such as, sizes, weight, mixtures and more. Our quality capsule shells are made from natural gelatin and therefore making it easier for consumption. In addition, it also helps reduce any undesired smell or taste and has a therapeutic disintegration time of approximately 15 minutes to dissolve. Most importantly, the extracts we use are all of high quality and from natural and safe sources.

Capsule size

Capsules are divided into several sizes which are indicated by the numbers such as:

  2. Size # 0 Capsule
  3. Size # 1 Capsule
  4. Size # 2 Capsule
  5. Size # 3 Capsule
  6. Size # 4 Capsule

 

The weight of each capsule depends on the density of the powder being used. Some powders are much denser than others. It also depends on the fineness of the powder. The way we ensure this is by check the weight of each individual material.

Our machines have the capability of accurately measuring to within one-tenth of a gram or even to one-tenth of an ounce. We are able to precisely weigh the empty capsules against the filled ones.

If clients only require a small amount of active ingredient, we are able to mix additional ingredients such as milk powder or rice powder as top-up fillers. Apart from the different capsule sizes and types available, clients will also be given a choice with regards to the colours of the capsule.
