Quick Start Guide
1. Choose a Capsule Size
Please refer to our capsule sizing chart. There are seven size capsules available for the capsule fillers; size 4 (smallest), size 3, size 2, size 1, size 0, size 00 and size 000, (largest). No tampers are currently manufactured to fit size 2, 3 and 4 fillers. Each capsule filler is specific to its capsule. For instance, a size '1' filler will only fit size '1' capsules. Size '0' will only work with '0' capsules, etc. The most common capsule sizes on the market today are size 00 and 0. Click on the animated capsule sizing guide below.
2.Choose a Capsule Type
There are two types of capsules from which to choose: Gelatin and Vegetarian.1. Why Choose Gelatin Capsules?
Gelatin is the most common capsule type. Gelatin is an animal product. It comes from the same material used in flavored gelatin desserts. The gelatin used in the manufacture of capsules we sell comes from Bovine hide. Gelatin dissolves more completely and is absorbed more easily by the body. The body recognizes it as a food and processes it that way. Gelatin costs less than vegetarian capsules.2. Why Choose Vegetarian Capsules?
Vegetarian capsules are a non-animal alternative to gelatin. They are not made from vegetables. They are made from HPMC (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose) derived from Southern Pine bark. The main two reasons to choose vegetarian capsules are either for religious purposes when animal products cannot be taken, or for vegetarians requiring an alternative to animal-based products. Vegetarian capsules are more expensive than gelatin capsules, but both types of capsules dissolve in about the same amount of time..
