Empty gelatin capsules offer an economical and convenient way to take strong tasting vitamin or herb powders. Empty capsules allow you to fill your own powders at desired potencies and avoid tablet binders and fillers.
Buying powdered vitamins and filling your own capsules can save up to 50% off most retail prices.
Our "00" gelatin capsules can hold between 700-900 mg of most vitamin powders. NOW Foods offers a complete line of powdered supplements for filling these capsules.
NOW also supplies vegetarian Vcaps that are derived from vegetable sources. Additionally NOW offers several smaller sizes of gelatin capsules.
Gelatin and water.
While these are a good size and easier to fill by hand than vegecaps, I'll be avoiding them like the plague from now on. After a bit of detective work, I seem to be intolerant of anything that's made of gelatin. This is apparently possible if you get the flu injection which contains gelatin, or other innoculations that contain gelatin, such as MMR (which I got with three other innoculations when I moved country). Possibly also why nutritional oils in gelcaps cause me grief (though some of that is also a salicylate/glycerine thing). It's a toxic world. My suggestion - forgo the caps and go as natural as possible (even if it tastes awful). Your immune system will play nice in the long run.

iHerb carries a lot of powder forms of supplements so the ones you can't tolerate the taste just use these , it holds about 900mg max depends on the powder type , easy to swallow and best value for money,i would condsider a vegie cap if the price was a little lower. a few remarks : i think iherb should bring back the Now " Cap M Quick " back into stock and Now should write the kosher / Halal on the package itself and not only in the description page....you are welcome to rate & read my other reviews

I always order my empty capsules for iherb because the price is so great. I make my own supplements using the empty capsules. For me these capsules are just right for my needs.
Just what i needed

This item came just as described. None of my capsule were broken or dented, they were all in perfect condition. These are incredibly easy to fill by hand. I am using them for the ingestion of essential oils and simply separated the two parts of the capsule, filled them with my oil mixture using a small dropper, and put the capsule back together. I've stored the made-up caps at both room temperature and in the freezer with no problems. I was advised they would be easier to swallow when frozen, but I prefer them at room temperature. They are slightly larger than a Tylenol, but smaller than a fish oil capsule. I find them very easy to swallow. . . Click YES if you found my review beneficial.
