How to Tell the Difference Between Gelatin and Vegetable Capsules

Hello again friends! Here's another in our series of answers to commonly asked questions. This was the big one I've been meaning to get done for a while - the differences in gelatin-based vs. vegetarian-based capsules. Many are shocked to find out that vegetarian capsules are not made from vegetables. However, customers we've been serving for well over a decade, if they've ever asked us, know that vegetarian capsules are made from a semi-sythesized natural product know as HPMC, or HydroxyPropyl MethylCellulose or the shorter HyproMellose. Both vegetarian and gelatin capsules are naturally gluten-free.  This video will set the record straight, and maybe even save you some money on your next purchase! Be sure to watch all the way to the end for a 10% discount offer!
