Info: Various Empty Capsules (Some Gelatin; Some 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 smaller '0' size capsules can typically hold between 400 and 500 mg of most powders (depending on the type); the '00' size can hold between 700 and 900 mg; and the largest '000' capsules have a capacity of about 1,230. Available in your choice of standard animal-based gelatin or in the vegetarian "Vcaps" (or veg. capsules). The Single and Double-0 types are perfect for use with The Cap-M-Quik or The Capsule Machine.
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.
Packaging may vary from images shown.
