Are your supplement capsules made from gelatin or are they vegetable based? Gelatin is a common ingredient used by supplement manufacturers to make capsules, but they may not be the best choice for your health. Here is why you should choose vegetable capsules over gelatin.
Gelatin Versus Veggie Based Capsules
Gelatin is a mixture of peptides and proteins produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the skins, bones, and connective tissues of animals such as domesticated cattle, chicken, pigs, and fish. They also may pose a risk to your health. Indigestion, bloating, upset stomach, and exposure to toxins are just a few of the adverse side effects associated with their consumption.
Unlike gelatin capsules, vegetable capsules are natural, contain no preservatives, sugar, artificial colors, dairy or other added ingredients.
