If you're serious about your health and you don't want to take supplements made with chemical preservatives or artificial ingredients, you'll want to make sure your gelatin capsules are completely safe. At EmptyCaps.com, we use gelatin capsules which are made from bovine hide, ensuring you that the capsules we sell are completely safe from such problems as mad cow disease. For our vegetarian market, or for individuals who for religious reasons will not use animal-based products, we offer vegetarian capsules that are manufactured using 100 percent hydroxypropyl methylcellulose or hydroxypropyl methylcellulose. It's a big word, but in essence the substance used in the vegetarian capsules is simply derived from the trunks of southern pine trees.
Our extensive customer base is essentially made up of individuals who prefer to make their own herbal supplements. As you know, buying herbal supplements from manufacturers directly can be extremely costly. In addition, you can't always be sure that you're getting what you think you're getting. When you make your own herbal supplements using the empty gelatin capsules you buy yourself, you know what's going into them, and you can also rest easy knowing that the product you're ingesting is encapsulated safely too. EmptyCaps.com also sells capsule fillers to make the process of filling your empty gelatin capsules quick and easy.
Gelatin Capsules for Herbal Supplements
People today are greatly dissatisfied with many aspects of "modern" medicine. They're looking for alternatives to so-called "traditional" western medicine. By many accounts, India is the home of "traditional" medicines, in the form of herbal remedies. The Indian Journal of Biotechnology estimated the worldwide herbal market in 2002 to be worth an estimated $50 Billion. That's big business. Why has the herbal market grown so large so fast? Because people are realizing that if they take care of their health now, the payoffs will be much bigger down the road. Basically, people understand that it is much easier to prevent illness and disease than it is to treat illness and disease--especially when taking into account that western medicine treats symptoms. The pharmaceutical industry is less interested in curing diseases than it is in introducing drugs that treat symptoms. Pharmaceuticals, in almost all instances, come with a series of side effects that can be detrimental to one's health. As a result, more and more consumers are taking their health into their own hands and supplementing with natural herbs, vitamins and supplements that many believe will help to ward off illness and disease and boost the immune system.
Maybe you've thought about making your own herbal supplements at one time or another. You're not alone. Millions worldwide are finding that creating one's own herbal remedies can be rewarding and fun. The problem with some herbs is the bitter taste. Fortunately you can use a capsule filling machine and empty gelatin or vegetarian capsules to make your own herbal remedies, allowing you to take the herbs without tasting a thing. Many popular herbs and even spices include cayenne pepper , garlic, and cinnamon just to name a few. You can see how those popular powders could, to some, offer "taste challenges." Capsule fillers, tampers and empty gelatin capsules may be purchased online at EmptyCaps.com, where we sell all those products, and ship directly to your door. Once you place your order, you should receive your empty gelatin capsules and filler machine within five to seven days. Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality supplies so you can begin taking charge of your health sooner rather than later.
