Why Not Veggie Caps?

Q Why doesn’t Life Enhancement use veggie caps for its products?

A Your question is one we receive frequently. Many people do not realize that vegetable capsules are not ideal for human consumption because they contain cellulose. Cellulose can cause digestive problems if you take more than few capsules per day, as do many of our customers. Too much cellulose can spur the growth of fecal microflora which may ferment in the GI tract and cause undesirable side effects, such as altered gut bacteria, indigestion, overly bulky stools, and other problems. For further reading, please see the book Exploring Life Science by Marshall Cavendish Corporation (especially the chapter covering cellulose digestion). Try to find it at your local library. It is a very expensive volume, over $500 at http://www.booksamillion.com/product/9780761471356?id=4965010387876.
