Tonight .. I want to ask. I am again trying to consume DHA sumplemen. Shaped softgels. Because the shape is thumpy. I broke it in my mouth. I want to ask. How to drink softgels properly? And because I already chewed it in my mouth, is there any effect? Thank you in advance.

Hi Yori,

Softgel is a form of drug-like capsule with the use of gelatin shells to wrap certain drugs / active ingredients. This dosage form is useful for carrying materials with low solubility and permeability.

Softgel dosage form is actually intended that the drug can be released in the digestive tract or stabilize products that are sensitive to acids so that it should be consumed intact. When you consume softgel by breaking it down and then swallowing it can cause decreased absorption of the drug and cause digestive disorders such as discomfort in the stomach.

If you have doubts about the use of a supplement or medication, you should discuss this matter with your doctor directly in order to get recommendations that are appropriate for the supplement / medicine.

May be useful,
