    Why You Should Fill Your Own Capsules:

    • Know exactly what is in your empty gelatin capsule
    • Save time and money
    • Customize your supplements to fit your needs
    • Avoid those bad tasting herbs
    Capsule Filled With Herbs

    A great added benefit of using clear empty gelatin capsules is the capsules show off the vibrant color and texture of whatever you are filling the caps with. Just keep in mind, they are light sensitive.

    What makes them the best?

    Simply put…limited ingredients. The main ingredients of our size 1 gelatin capsules are 100% pharmaceutical hide bovine gelatin and purified water. 

    These size 1 gelatin capsules are manufactured in India, where the cattle are raised under strict regulations to produce high quality gelatin. They close easily, snap tight and have the lowest incidence of dents of all the other gelatin capsules available on the market today.

    Our Gelatin Capsules Are:

    • BSE Free
    • Kosher and Halal Certified
    • Preservative Free
    • Gluten Free
    • Allergen Free

    All of our capsules are completely tasteless, odorless and colorless, making them very easy to swallow as long as you pick the correct capsule size.

    Capsule sizes range from size 4 (which is the smallest), all the way up to size 000 (largest).

    The amount of powder that you can fit inside each capsule varies depending on the density of the powder, which is why you will see a weight range that each capsule can hold.

    Dense powders such as Bentonite Clay and Beet Root Powder will fall at the higher end of the range, whereas light powders such as Ginkgo Biloba and Ceylon Cinnamon will fall toward the lower end.

    Here is a breakdown of the approximate volume each capsule can hold:

    • Size 000 – 800-1600 mg
    • Size 00 – 600-1100 mg
    • Size 0 – 400-800 mg
    • Size 1 – 300-600 mg
    • Size 2 – 200-400 mg
    • Size 3 – 150-300 mg

    This is the second time I've bought bags of capsules from Herb Affair and both times the capsules was shipped out within one business day and I received a very good product for a very reasonable price. So I would recommend this company to anyone that's interested in these products.
