Softigel and creating the next super pill

As consumers become increasingly knowledgeable about the different delivery formats available, so they continue to demand more from both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. As a result, the race to create the next ‘super pill’ has intensified. One of the leading contenders in this race is Unigel softgel.

What is softgel technology? Softgel is a system for conveying medical or nutritional benefits composed of an inner fill with an API (active pharmaceutical ingredient) in a semisolid or liquid phase protected by an external, hermetically sealed gelatin cover.

It allows manufacturers to use APIs with poor biopharmaceutical properties, gives versatility from a drug release modulation standpoint and ensures high-precision dosage by achieving homogeneity of ingredients.
