May 25/10 The New York Times ran a shocking article about the high levels of heavy metals found in common herbal supplements & capsules. These contaminants included mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic. And on top of that, the dangerous pesticides levels exceeded the legal limits on 40% of the products testedClick here to read the story.  [Specifically see paragraph 2]
So if you're buying herbal capsules, obviously you care about your health & need to know what you're putting into your body. YOU CAN AVOID THESE DANGEROUS CONTAMINANTS BY FILLING THE CAPSULES YOURSELF. 
It's easy to do with either the 'Cap M Quik' (50) or The Capsule Machine (24) filling devices. In about 20 minutes, you can make 50 capsules or 24 with The Capsule Machine. Each available for 3 capsule sizes.
So WHY NOT make your own medicinal herbal capsules  & enjoy the huge savings over store bought and the many health benefits ?
To get started you'll need powdered Herbs, empty capsules and perhaps a 'Cap-M-Quik' or 'The Capsule Machine' filling device, accommodating making either 50 or 24 capsules at one time. 
Or you can easily make just a few at a time by hand, just put powder into a shallow bowl, separate the capsule and pack the long end of capsule by jamming it into the herb powder a few times to pack in the powder, then put the cap on & press down until it locks.  Takes but a few minutes for a few capsules. 
(Sorry, we're no longer able to offer the service of making capsules for you.)
