New probiotic softgel capsules support the health of the gut flora
The new probiotic formulations are based on a dedicated shell combined with suitable fill mass enhancers. The new capsules are easy to swallow. The capsule content can be adapted to special needs and further ingredients. Taste, colour, and size are customizable.
With its probiotic softgel capsules, the Aenova Group, a global leading contract manufacturer and developer for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, has developed a new product for the wellbeing of the human body at its Swiss site in Kirchberg. The new capsules, which contain living bacteria or yeasts, do combine the advantages of the soft gelatin formulation technology with the health benefits of Probiotics.
Probiotics help to restore the natural balance of bacteria in the gut when it has been disrupted by an illness or treatment. Some pathological conditions they can help with are irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), infectious diarrhea (caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites) or diarrhea caused by antibiotics.
The microorganisms, which are encapsulated under special conditions, do show activity and growth after production and storage. Therefore, viability of the contained “good” bacteria and yeasts is assured.
"Following our mission we pride ourselves on delivering innovative products and services to healthcare customers that improve and extend patients' lives”, states Dr. Christian Luftensteiner, Managing Director of Aenova’s Swiss site at Kirchberg. “In our Center of Excellence for soft capsules we apply decades of know-how and most modern infrastructure to provide impeccable quality to our customers worldwide.”
