U-Chew™: Bitter Medicine Made Sweet
Chewable soft gel capsules have given the natural health supplement field an effective, innovative way of delivering nutrients for the human body‘s use. The soft gel capsule hermetically preserves its contents, ensuring each ingredient‘s potency and efficacy, but takes it one step further by providing significantly easier intake.
However, most of the attention and research has focused on methods to increase the efficiency of nutrient delivery possessed by the soft gel capsule. Drowned out in all the studies for nutrient absorption has been the taste and texture of the soft gel itself, often an afterthought in the development process. This is where U-Chew™ comes in, an exciting development in soft gel technology, providing a smoother experience when taking any nutritional supplement.
The Advantages of Easier Ingestion
U-Chew‘s™ patented breakthrough is a marked improvement over traditional chewable soft gel capsules. Many soft gels are considered chewable seemingly by technicality − they can technically be broken down by human teeth. U-Chew™ eclipses the hard-to-swallow model by incorporating a unique method in the soft gel production process, giving the soft gel a softer texture and smoother mouth feel. The active components retain the protection offered by a soft gel, with the all of the difficulty with swallowing and chewing removed.
Custom Made Look and Taste
To complement the ease of intake, U-Chew™ also offers a vast number of customization options for flavor. Orange, lemon, strawberry and apple are mere starting points. Taste profiles can be selected and adjusted to meet product specification, and new flavors can be formulated to meet any taste requirements. In addition, shapes ranging from small pearl globes to sleek oval capsules can be used to control the size of the capsule and the amount of active ingredients inside. Customization is a key feature of any U-Chew™ capsule so that any product can be designed with individuality both inside and out.
U-Chew™ is Ideal Because...
- Children and the elderly often experience difficulty in swallowing and ingesting oral supplements in solid forms.
- Swallowing large capsules can be difficult for many individuals, even when taken with water.
- Certain medical conditions, particularly ones that affect neurological centers, make it challenging to ingest oral dosage forms, even with water, even when they can be broken down by chewing.
