Supplement Coatings: Does the synthetic coating of capsules harm the liver or any part of the body?

There is no synthetic coating on the capsules from Swanson Health Products. The outer shell is made from gelatin, which is an animal protein. It’s the same thing as eating Jell-O or Knox gelatin, just less of it. It would take dozens of capsules to make even 1 teaspoon of Jell-O.
