Thoughts on the use of Gelatin coated pills?

I was wondering what some of your opinions on the matter are.

You can ask your physician if there is a non-gelatin version of the pill. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it - it's only a tiny amount of animal product.


Specific recommendations for a healthy diet include: eating more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains; cutting down on salt, sugar and fats. It is also advisable to choose unsaturated fats, instead of saturated fats and towards the elimination of trans-fatty acids."

I generally avoid over the counter pills such as vitamins, pain killers, etc with gelatin. If I had to take a prescription to manage a condition that I could not manage on my own, and the only available prescription contained gelatin, I would take it.
