H-caps®-DR, also known as HPMC Delayed-Release Capsules, are designed to release their contents in a delayed and controlled manner. This makes them an ideal choice for medications that need to be released in the small intestine instead of the stomach, where the harsh acidic environment can damage the drug.
The H-caps®-DR capsules are made from HPMC, a plant-based polymer that is free from any animal derivatives. This makes them a suitable choice for vegetarians and those who avoid animal-based products. HPMC is also highly compatible with most active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), making these capsules a versatile option for drug formulations.
The H-caps®-DR capsules are designed to provide a delayed-release of the drug to the desired site of action. They can withstand the acidic environment of the stomach, without breaking down or releasing the contents prematurely. This ensures that the medication is delivered to the small intestine, where it can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
In addition to their delayed-release properties, the H-caps®-DR capsules also offer high stability, low moisture content, and are free from any gelatin cross-linking or Maillard reaction. They are also registered with US DMF and Australia TGA and are certified by Kosher and Vegetarian.
