They are gelatin capsules--small, so no trouble with swallowing them. I started taking them when I had an active Ulcerative Colitis that was an incredibly painful time for me. This is only one of a few items, (psyllium husks and a prescription medication) -- but it didn't kick in until some time after I began taking them. So, I honestly believe that they do digest at the proper time for them to be effective--not a Doctor, just my personal experience and opinion.

Hi, I have read the bottle and it does not make any reference to if there is a gelatin shell or bigger resistance to gastric juice. This product description on the bottle does mention that they help maintain the integrity of the intestinal lining and support proper intestinal motility. I know that I didn’t answer your question but the packaging does not support your questions.

They are vegan gel capsules. These have to be taken on an empty stomach or between meals. However, product states: "offers a balanced spectrum of live organisms consisting of acid-resistant strains that are known to naturally colonize the human GI tract." Therefore, stomach acids should not present a problem if taken as directed. I take them in the morning and they work great for me.
