Modified release capsules combine the benefits of both immediate release capsules and time release capsules. Immediate release capsules are intended for supplements that need to be delivered into the body right away, such as vitamin B supplements. Time released capsules, on the other hand, slowly release their ingredients into the body over time.

Combining these technologies, modified release capsules discharge an initial dose while in the stomach, and then slowly release the remaining dosage over a period of time in the gastro-intestinal tract. This method of strategically delivering a dosage over time can reduce the number of pills that you have to take. You no longer have to worry about taking too much or too little of a supplement at one time, as the capsule is designed to release the proper amount over a pre-determined period of time.

Supplements in Modified Release Capsules

Several nutritional and performance supplements can be found in modified release capsules. An energy booster using this capsule could deliver an immediate effect, as well as slowly releasing another dose over time to sustain the energy boost longer. Supplements intended to improve memory can also use modified release capsules so that the supplement keeps working over a long period of time, rather than having an immediate impact that then dissipates over the course of the day.

When you are trying to lose weight, skipping meals can be dangerous because your metabolism may slow down. Modified release weight loss capsules, however, contain two ingredients to help you burn fat. The immediate release of an energy boosting supplement, coupled with the timed release of supplements to keep your metabolism at a higher level, can help you lose weight when combined with a sensible diet and exercise routine.
