Info: Various Empty Capsules (Gelatin or VCaps)
Empty capsules enable you to fill your own powders at desired potencies, and avoid tablet binders and fillers. Buying powdered vitamins or medicinal herbs and filling your own capsules can save up to 50% off many retail prices. The '0' size capsules can typically hold between 400 and 500 mg of most powders (depending on the type), and the '00' size can hold between 700 and 900 mg. Available in your choice of standard animal-based gelatin or in the vegetarian "Vcaps" (or veg. capsules). These are perfect for use with The Cap-M-Quik or The Capsule Machine.
While the original packaging for these products are like the large ones shown, the company is gradually switching some of them out for a new look like these.
Please note, the VCaps (Vegetarian Capsules) may become slightly hazy when exposed to air or humidity (since they have no preservatives); that's natural, and won't affect them or their performance.
Gelatin Empty Capsules: Gelatin,* Water.
*(NOW's animal-based gelatin is obtained through the processing of collagen derived from the skin, white connective tissues and bones of beef and/or pork. While most of the previous types have not specified which, the latest 250 capsule bag of the "0" size specifies Bovine, as shown above).
Vcaps (Veg. Capsules): HydroxyPropyl MethylCellulose (HPMC), vegetable source, and water. (Contains no yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, milk, sugar, starch, preservatives or animal products.)
