Why are there brown spots on some of my Proceive capsules?
This can happen from time to time, if air gets into the capsule minerals such as iron can oxidise and start to go brown. As there are no additives in Proceive (such as artificial colours) it means you can see it more clearly. Rest assured, this is not harmful however, we do need to report it to our Quality Assurance team. If you have experienced this issue please email an image of the affected product as well as the batch number and best before date to email@example.com.
