Softgels encapsulate one or several APIs and control their release pro- files (immediate and/or sustained) and site of release (gastric and intestinal). Advantages include precise doses, contain- ment of high-potency compounds, and better bioavailability of compounds with low solubility/permeability. Softgels accommodate combinations of multiple APIs that are chem- ically incompatible or in different forms (i.e., liquid and semi- solid), simplify patient regimens for better compliance, extend product lifecycle, and differentiate your products from those of competitors.
