Advantages of Making Your Own Capsules

1. Price: You are able to save 50% or more by making your own herbal capsules.

2. Ingredients: You have complete control over the ingredients in your capsules and can avoid unnecessary excipients and fillers. You know exactly what is in each capsule that you make. Many companies still try to deceive you by putting the weight of the capsules on the front of the bottle, such as 450mg per capsule. Then, when you review the back of the bottle it states that only 150mg is the herb and the rest is millet or another grain. Even though the weight of the capsules is correct, the capsules may contain other fillers.

3. Formula: Your formula designed by you. It is sometimes difficult to find the right amount of herbs in pre-made capsules and tablets. If you only want 20mg of an herb, then that is what goes into your formula. 

4. Taste: Bitter or sour herbs may be difficult to drink as a tea. When you take them in encapsulated form, they are much easier to swallow.

5. Composition: There different types of capsules available. Gelatin capsules and vegetarian capsules are the most popular.

6. Sizing: There are a few different sizes of capsules, some larger and some smaller. These are helpful if you have difficulty swallowing. Sizes "0" and "00" are most common.

7. Test Batches: Easily make small batches to insure the formula you have created is properly designed for your needs. Once you know your formula works for you, you can make a larger batch.

8. Freshness: Using fresh herbs, you can guarantee that your capsules are made with the freshest and most potent ingredients!
