English term or phrase: gelcap
Tip: Our favorite is Omega Brite, an especially pure brand that comes in 500-mg gelcaps, so you're not popping pills all day. Take omega-3s with meals so you don't burp up a fish scent.

According to Google, it means 胶囊锭. But According to 《新时代英语新词词典》(国防工业出版社),it means 新椭圆胶丸。
