Are there any side effects of long-term use of plant capsules?
Update:02 Feb 2021
Botanical capsules have long been used as hollow capsules of medicines and have been widely used in the production and processing of medicines. Medicinal botanical hollow capsules have significant effects on alleviating various symptoms of patients and can improve the quality of life of patients. Although plant capsules are widely used and have high safety, people often ask if there are any side effects of long-term use of plant capsules?
Plant capsules (also known as halal capsules) are hollow capsules made of plant cellulose or water-soluble polysaccharides as raw materials. The cellulose is 2-hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, usually short cotton linter or wood pulp. , Made by etherification. For example, carrageenan, pectin, agar, sodium alginate and guar gum are all extracted from plants, and some of their characteristics are the same as animal gelatin.
Plant capsules are rich in raw materials, such as carrageenan starch, malt extract, various cellulose, alginate, beeswax, etc., as well as some plasticizers, such as glycerin, sorbitol, maltitol, propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol and Water etc. From the perspective of the development of gelatin, traditional capsules (animal capsules) were developed in the 1930s, and only today have they formed the main packaging form of medicines. The research on plant capsules has only been 20 years. As long as breakthroughs are made in technology, equipment and raw materials over time, plant capsules will have much to do. Because it not only has a wide range of uses, but also has better safety.
Are there any side effects of long-term use of plant capsules? The results of experimental studies have confirmed that long-term regular use of plant capsules often has a multiplier effect, but it should not be taken uncontrollably in large quantities, otherwise it will easily cause abnormalities in the body. After 3 months of long-term use, the plant capsule has no obvious side effects. It can also be said that the plant capsule has better safety!
