Delay Release Capsules - What are they used for?

Posted by Abram Lazootin on

Delay release capsules are a unique product designed to allow your capsule contents passage through the stomach before being released into the small intestine. 

Because of their acid-resistant properties, Capsugel DR capsules are ideally suited for highly acid-sensitive supplements—including probiotics, enzymes and certain sports nutrition ingredients—which work best in the intestines. Delivering the ingredients to where they are best utilized means that the optimum use of your product is ensured and you get the best value out of your product.

The Capsugel brand DR capsules sold through The Capsule Guy are made from a vegetarian polymer that slows down capsule opening after the capsule is swallowed. This effectively masks unpleasant tastes and odours of certain ingredients, such as garlic and omega 3 fish oils, which helps to reduce reflux.

Capsugel DR capsules;

  • Disintegration starts approximately 45 minutes later than a typical immediate release capsule of about 5 minutes

  • Complete release usually occurrs 20 minutes after the onset of release

  • DRcaps capsules significantly reduce opportunity for nutritional ingredient degradation compared with standard immediate release capsules

  • Certified Vegan
  • Non-GMO
  • Vegetarian Society, Halal and Kosher certifications
