Furthermore, gelatin capsules would NOT break down in the intestines - they wouldn't make it that far. They breakdown very soon after reaching the stomach acid.

 

Sorry to harp on about this, but Hat and myself are readers and have mild OCD symptoms of always having to make sure something is proven correct :D

 

But this is not just for our own ego-gratification, this is for the benefit of all.

Thank you both for your quick reply. I'm using a compounding pharmacy right now, but when I get down to the lower dosages, I'm anticipating counting beads and I want to get this right.

Where is the best place to get the enteric coated capsules? I've been looking on Amazon, but some reviewers on there are stating that some of the enteric capsules sold turn out to be just regular, plain gelatin capsules.

Enteric coated capsules are also sold under the name of acid resistant capsules. I got mine at a local compounding pharmacy. They keep them in stock for make ups of Cymbalta and similar compounds.

I'm on that Facebook group too, they are pretty militant in their instructions. I believe the founder's sister committed suicide while on or tapering off C. :(

Pharmacy is best place if you can for the caps. Most will be able to order them in if they don't carry stock.

 

Yes - the FB are quite militant, but they mean well and offer lots of support. But what sorry circumstances for the founder.
