Empty Vcaps® are a new alternative to animal gelatin capsules. They are composed on inert vegetable cellulose and do not interfere with the digestion and absorption of the ingredients contained within. Empty capsules allow you to fill your own powders at desired potencies, and avoid tablet binders and fillers. Buying powdered vitamins and filling your own capsules can save up to 50% off most retail prices. Our Vcaps® "00", depending on the powder, can hold between 546 – 1092 mg.

Nice sized capsules
It’s amazing how quickly you can go through a couple of hundred capsules! I use these basically for turmeric and cayenne pepper powder. These are a really nice size and having 750 capsules means not having to worry about running out (after sending out a couple of hundred to friends and relatives). And the price of these on Amazon was much cheaper than what my local health food store is charging. I will totally order these again.
Hard to find locally, it was a lifesaver finding these at Amazon. If you have to take Prednisone tablets, you know how bitter they are, and how quickly they melt in your mouth. Placing them in the gel caps is an ideal solution we came up with, and it works!
These capsules work great!
Ive had nothing but success with these capsules. I havent experienced any shrinkage as some others have had with gel caps. I havent lost a single one to damage of any kind. Well worth the extra money.
I bought these for my Nana who is 89 years old and mostly blind. Some of her pills are so small that she couldn’t see or feel them. Once a month we are sitting down and filling these small pills into these capsules and Nana doesn’t have a problem taking her meds with these at all. No after taste or anything. Great solution if you do home health for a family member…
Used for making homemade herbal capsules
I just needed a basic capsule for making my own herbal supplements and these were just what I needed. They are sturdy enough to open and close without collapsing or crushing but dissolve quickly. I don’t have a capsule filling machine, so I can’t comment on some of the negative reviews about that. I just use a small box or tin to stand them all up in (wedged in together), pour the herbal powder into them, put the tops on and then pour the leftover powder back in the bag. It works for me.
The capsules are what I’m looking for. The only negative is the bag.
The capsules are what I’m looking for. The only negative is the bag. It is one of thoughs that once you cut it, it continues to rip open and spill all over the floor. I lost a bunch of caps related to this. You can pour it in another container, but have you tried pouring air light caps? It’s hard to keep them in the already torn bag. So my suggestion to the company is to make a better bag. Maybe with a ziplock. The capsules themselves seem to be good quality. I would buy them again.
Veg Capsules VS Gel caps
I love the Veg-caps after using the gel caps for years. These are easier to use, and they stand up to the ingredients I put in them without dissolving right away like gel caps can. I moved and could not find them and was so happy that Amazon was able to get them to me fast and very inexpensively.
I have tried one bag of Now Veg caps in size 00. I even got about a dozen extras in my bag.
I found that they are easy to pull apart, pliable, flexible, and great quality. No problems at all. I will continue to use this brand in the future.
i needed small capsules.
when i saw size 00, i thought “small”.
these are large.
what i really needed was size 1 or even size 3.
i have trouble with this sticking in my throat at times.
even though i easily swallow some capsules that are much larger (fish oil).
good if you need big capsules.
there’s always size 000 if you need something even larger:
NOW Foods 000 Gelatin Capsules, 200 Capsules
these are great. WAY BETTER THAN GELATIN. these are better in the stomach. work better. no stomach aching. clean. not unhealthy
