Many people use empty capsules to make their very own vitamins and herbal supplements with capsule machines. Much more cost-effective than buying products, using empty capsules to make homemade supplements is actually a simple process.
You do not need any special training to fill your own empty capsule or to use a capsule filling machine. All you need is just a few minutes to practice filling empty capsules and most people are able to master the task and, within 10 minutes, be able to fill an average of 50 empty capsules.
When you make your own supplement, you are sure to get exactly the ingredients you want, which is not always the case when you buy already-packaged supplements. Additionally, you may be able to use empty capsules for powder supplements which are not available in capsule form.
Empty capsules are sold in a variety of sizes and in both gelatin capsules and vegetable capsules. Empty gelatin capsules feature a positive mechanical lock, eliminating common problems such as dented ends and separation after filling. Vegetable capsules are made from carbohydrate gum derived from naturally occurring vegetable cellulose, or plant fiber and are 100% free from animal by-products and preservatives.
Capsule sizes are denoted by a number, which indicates the size and volume of the capsule. The problem is that the size is actually reversed, so a capsule “3” size is smaller than a capsule “2” size, a “1” size is smaller than a “zero” size, with the “triple zero” size (000) the biggest capsule size available.
Lastly, a capsule machine can automatically fill capsules making it faster and easier for you. It can be used for all types of herb and vitamin powders, filling an average of a dozen of capsules per minute. You can mix ingredients, using top quality, fresh raw ingredients, and save up to 75% on supplements.
