What You Need to Know about Encapsulating Liquids

Capsuline Liquid CapsEncapsulating Liquids is an Art and a Science

Although most liquids can be encapsulated in either a gelatin or vegetarian capsule, the reality is that encapsulating liquids is often an art and a science. The results depend heavily on the formulation, the quality of the formulation, and a range of production-related variables.

This is why it is always best to order a small quantity of capsules and do some testing before you pull the trigger on a large capsule order. Until you test it, it’s hard to predict how your formulation and equipment will perform.

The Different Capsule Types

In determining which type of capsule is best for your liquid encapsulation needs, you first need to understand some of the basic benefits that each provides: Continue reading “What You Need to Know about Encapsulating Liquids”

A Better Way To Give Your Pet Meds – Flavored Capsules

Flavored Capsules for Pets: A Great Solution for a Significant Problem

Pill Your Pet With Flavored Capsules If you’ve ever tried giving a pill to a pet, you know that pets do not like taking medication. Because standard capsules and pills do not smell or taste like “food,” most dogs and cats refuse to swallow them. Instead they run away, refuse to open their mouths, eat the food that the capsule is “disguised” in and then spit out the capsule, and so forth.

Often, out of desperation, pet owners resort to force feeding, which can be harmful in and of itself. Prying apart a pet’s jaws and shoving something down its throat (without getting bitten by the pet in the process) is stressful for the pet owner and frightening and painful for the pet.

Luckily, there is a better way…  Continue reading “A Better Way To Give Your Pet Meds – Flavored Capsules”

Toxic Capsules Found On Sale in China – 11 Arrested

Toxic Capsule Factory Found in China, 11 ArrestedImage Credit - Daily Post

“Not Again”… that’s what we here at Capsuline said upon seeing this Reuters post entitled “China arrests 11 over toxic capsule factory”. Seems they were manufacturing gelatin capsules that contained a high level of chromium which is very toxic to humans and pets alike. This is usually the result of the use of “industrial grade” gelatin which, while less expensive to acquire, is not fit for human consumption.

At Capsuline, every capsule we manufacture is made with BSE-free100% bovine pharmaceutical gelatin to give you an extra measure of safety that not all manufacturers provide. Our gel caps are both Kosher Pareve and Halal certified and made in a cGMP and FDA-approved facility here in North America.

Gelatin in the News

Gel CapsulesEarlier this week, reports of a bad batch of gelatin capsules surfaced in Asia claiming the German company Gelita sold over 30 tons of gelatin made from “discarded leather scraps” to various Chinesecompanies. Companies that use this gelatin to make products like gummy candies and medicine have
distanced themselves from Gelita, which has people taking more of an interest in knowing where their food comes from.

 In response, Capsuline would like to assure all of our gelatin is 100% bovine from approved gelatin suppliers, and Capsuline does not use the gelatin mentioned in this article in its products.

Brave Mykayla takes cannacaps internationally!

A cancer diagnosis is painful for any family, when it affects a child it is that much more debilitating. Mykayla Comstock aka Brave Mykayla was diagnosed with leukemia in May 2012. She undertook typical cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and when that did not put her in remission radiation was the next suggested step.

Mykayla’s parents, Erin Purchase and Brandon Kenzler, chose to take a different option. They decided to use cannabis oil to fight her cancer. Erin and Brandon felt it was the best way to treat their daughter.

“If we didn’t use cannabis oil for our daughter she’d have to use opiate medications such as Oxycodone or Percocets” said Erin.

Our very own flavored capsules were chosen to treat Mykayla in which she fills her cannabis oil in her favorite bubblegum flavor, that helps with the taste in her mouth. We couldn’t be happier with Mykayla’s progress; within a week of treatment her cancer had went into remission!

Australian 7News recently did a story covering Mykayla and you can check out the video clip here and see why this brave little girl’s story should be receiving international attention.
