GAR - Gastric Acid Resistant Capsules
(pH sensitive enteric capsules)
1: What is Enteric GAR Capsules?
Bright Pharma Caps and its sister companies developed the Gastric Acid Resistant (Bright-GAR) HPMC capsules that are based on Hypromellose, HPMC-AS, methacrylates or HPMCP, primarily for the purpose of delivering live microbes, enzymes, oxygen sensitive and acid sensitive ingredients to safely pass through stomach gastric acid and release quickly in the intestine.
Recently, we expanded this category of products to meet demand from all sector of customer base. We added two new items of Bright-GAR capsules into this category that will meet more diverse requirements of pharmaceutical locations delivery.
For details please contact your local sales representatives.
2: Three Types of Bright-GAR capsules
We supply three types of GAR capsules:
1) Brihgt GAR-AS capsules: Based on our Goh-Veg HPMC capsules, using HMPC AS as enteric coating materials that are compliant to FDA pharmaceutical and nutritional industry requirements.

2) Bright GAR-MA capsules: Based on Goh-Veg HPMC capsules, using methacrylates as enteric coating materials that are compliant to EFSA nutritional industry requirements.

2) Bright GAR-PH capsules: Based on Goh-Veg HPMC capsules, using HPMCP as enteric coating materials that are compliant to UPS, EP, JP and IP requirements.

Our GAR capsule is the best delivery system in the market for enzymes, live microbes and acid sensitive materials.
3: How Bright-GAR capsules are superior:
Tests performed in USP simulated gastric fluid show that Bright GAR HPMC capsules can withstand up to 3 hours in human stomach, yet will fully release its content 6 minutes into the intestine environment. Comparing with other DR (delayed release) capsules currently in the market, our GAR HPMC capsules are superior in the following ways:
1): More stable in gastric acid:
Bright-GAR capule can stay intact longer in stomach acid. Bright-GAR HPMC capsules can stay intact 30-60 minutes longer in gastric acid than DR capsules currently in the market.

2): pH sensitive location delivery:
Bright-GAR capsules are more sensitive to pH change, and guarantee the delivery of contents to intestine.
So this is a true target release capsule.

3): Easy to use:
No further sealing or banding is needed for Bright-GAR due to our capsule's unique closing system.

4): Enhanced machine-ability:
Bright-GAR are stronger and run better on automatic encapsulation machines.

5): Most economical option.
Save the costs of performing after-fill coating that requires investments on building, machine and labour forces.
4: Why our GAR Pullulan capsules are unique:
Our pullulan based GAR capsules combined the unique oxygen barrier properties of pullulan and better mechanical properties of CAP, and made it one of the only delayed release capsules that can both reduce content oxidation and withstand acidity of stomach. Our GAR pullulan capsules with these unique properties are ideal for delivering APIs that are based on live microbes, protein & enzymes and oxygen sensitive materials.
