Nature’s Lab takes pride in every dietary supplement we manufacture; from concept to formulations and ingredients, right down to the delivery method. We utilize high quality vegetarian capsules to encase most of our supplements (unless otherwise noted; reference the “other ingredients” for product-specific information). With so many delivery options out there, some may wonder why we choose this encapsulation method. This page explains the different delivery forms and the benefits of capsules.

The Benefits of Capsules

Capsules are two-piece enclosures made of various consumer-safe materials to encase the ingredients in dietary supplements. Capsules are the delivery method of choice here at Nature’s Lab, and we utilize easy-to-swallow vegetarian Hypromellose capsules whenever possible. 

Key Benefits of Capsules:

  • Capsules dissolve faster than other delivery methods
  • Capsules often require fewer excipients than other alternatives
  • Tasteless and odorless
  • Higher bioavailability than other delivery forms
  • Capsules allow for the blending of incompatible active matter
  • No added sugar
  • No harmful fillers or binders
  • Available in plant-based options
  • Available without added colors, flavors or coatings

What is Hypromellose?

There are a number of considerations to keep in mind when formulating supplements, including the delivery method. Hypromellose (HPMC) is a non-toxic synthetic form of cellulose that has been widely used in the food, dietary supplement and pharmaceutical industries. It is a permitted food additive (21 CFR 172.874) and is included in the FDA Inactive Ingredients Database and is generally recognized as a safe and non-irritant material. Unlike coated capsules, Hypromellose capsules are made without secondary gelling agents, making them vegetarian, preservative free, and physically and chemically stable. They are also a vegetarian option free from animal derivatives like gelatin. Our capsules are lab tested for stability as well as disintegration to ensure enhanced absorption compared to other delivery methods. These gentle, easy-to-swallow plant-based capsules are a convenient way deliver nutrients without unnecessary additives, harmful fillers or excess ingredients that don’t add value to the formula you know and trust.
