Question:

Hi, there are numerous daily supplements that have Gelatin coatings encapsulating the pill are these permitted to be taken? Yes I know there are kosher brands which I do purchase, the ones I am referring to are primarily supplements for weight-loss or Gym workout? Thank you

Answer:

It is controversial if they are permitted or not, and if one is taking them for a medical need, he can rely on those who are lenient. However buying supplements that don’t have any supervision can have ingredients that are more problematic then the gelatin itself. If you would like to verify a specific formula, you can send me a list of the ingredients and I can check into it for you.

Best Wishes
