Gastro Resistant Vegetable Capsules

The best choice for the correct release of active ingredients that are sensitive to gastric acids

Smart BioCaps®?

Protecting sensitive ingredients from gastric acids is a challenge for most of the pharmaceutical and the food supplement industries. Especially for those that produce probiotics and enzymes as they run the risk of losing their effectiveness when they cross the low pH of the stomach, whilst on their way to their place of action: the intestinal tract. Our Smart BioCaps® Vegetable Capsules provide a solution that enable the survival of microorganisms as they have a unique capacity to resist pH acid and break down in a pH-neutral environment.

Smart BioCaps capsules® and their power of resistance represent an excellent choice for products based on probiotics and enzymes, allowing their survival by effectively persisting to the first portion of the digestive tract, subject to pH acid, reaching the intestinal section which is pH neutral. The adequate place of action where most of the intestinal flora is located.

Our capsules protect the product without the need to use chemicals, using instead various natural ingredients which are all `Clean Label` – free from additives, allergens, starch, gluten and GMOs. The total absence of chemicals is guaranteed.

Power of effective maximum release

Smart BioCaps® capsules act through a slow and controlled release. They prevent the breakdown of its contents in the stomach and dissolve in the intestine, thus supporting a delayed absorption in the exact place where the product is most effective.
