Acid Armor® Capsules by Arthur Andrew Medical are a revolutionary new capsule that acts like an enteric coating. Acid Armor are made with cellulose (the main component of veggie caps), and designed with unique polymer properties to slow the capsule opening times once swallowed. These cellulose capsules are a much healthier option than enteric coatings. Enteric coatings use Phthalates which are plastic chemical polymers. These same chemicals are banned in children's toys, so we would not even think about adding them to any of our products.
Acid Armor capsules are also designed with an extremely low moisture content, which improves the stability of moisture sensitive components within the capsule. Acid Armor capsules have been shown in studies to delay the release of the capsule's contents by an average of 45 minutes. When a product like Neprinol is taken on an empty stomach, the capsule typically enters and leaves the stomach in 30 minutes or less. This means that the Acid Armor capsule provides ample time for the enzymes to get through the stomach and into the more "enzyme friendly" environment of the intestines.
