Many of the companies that sell liquid capsules have had this problem! Plus we as the consumer end up paying more for the product.. which sucks even more!!
    The pharmaceutical uses it due to cost production reasons. You know how much easier it is to make a powdered capsule? They are technically just as effective long term because they do dissolve eventually. Liquid caps, however, give quicker absorption, better for energy type of products, and are definitely better when taken on an empty stomach as they tend to not hit just one part of the stomach where it can cause upset while it dissolves from the outside to the inside. I have noticed a marked difference with liquid caps when taking on empty stomach. They are far less susceptible to moisture also. If you open some powdered capsules you can see moisture has entered them because they aren't fully sealed.

    It has nothing to do with cost of production. I work in the pharmaceutical industry. There is just no benefit what so ever of using a liquid capsule over a standard capsule. You guys may be doing it for marketing reasons but the truth is we as the consumer have to pay more for something that is absolutely useless.

    And your arguement on "hitting different parts of the stomach" makes no sense as well.

    Considering Pfizer just bought out a few larger liquid capsuling companies I see that there IS value in it.

    I have personally felt the difference between liquid and solid when taking on an empty stomach.

  4. Thats sweet

  5. I agree, there is a difference between liquid and powder capsules. Not for all actives of course, but there is one.

    There is value in it, only if the formula needs it. Some products require a special carrier for proper delivery. Unless you can post up evidence when you release your products as to why the ingredients require a delivery system (which we all know they do not) I will stand by my statement that it is useless..

    And Pfizer owns Capsugel so of course they would want to invest in capsule filling companies.. but it has nothing to do with them wanting to create delivery systems with liquid capsules for prescription drugs. Unlike the nutrition industry, the pharmaceutical industry requires approval on their products, and no way would they be able to do that using BS "delivery systems" like you guys are about to do.

    P.S. I hope that made since
    This I wholeheartedly agree with. This is what I would do.
