The contents being put under the capsule may be either gelatine- type or cellular one giving guarantee of efficacies of medicines being put under the cover. Prior to making such descriptions between the veg and non veg cover, we should examine the following points -
1) Efficiency of medicine - There are numerous Ayurvedic firms such as Organic India, Himalayas etc producing their herbs with the exterior cover coated with gelatine type but their products such as Aswagandha, Gokhru, Amalaki etc do have the excellent properties in curing the underlying disease. Hence main thrust should be given on the quality of herb rather than going on the type of cover.
2) Discontinuation of putting cover - Ayurvedic - firms can produce the herbs in the form of tablets of the appropriate potency discarding the exterior shells composed of gelatine or cellular type. In that way, their selling is not going to be affected on the issue of cover.
Even many Ayurvedic - firms are adopting such patterns currently.
3) To create awareness among the customers regarding the nature of cover if required - Ayrvedic - firms should come up with the proper advertisements regarding their quality of products including the type of cover used for coating of the capsules.
4) Changing the version of the product- Instead of resorting to capsule- form, the firms can go in for syrup or churn( powder) so as to offer the consumers of the real benifits of the medicine. In that way, the suspicion regarding nature of cover can be resolved.
