Step by step instructions for making your capsules using a Cap M Quik device are on the back of the box. 

To make 50 capsules only takes about 15 minutes, & then you simply store them in your own container.

Remember, encapsulating  your own herbs not only saves you many $$ over the store bought ones, but your HERBS are FRESH with no fillers or contaminants!

Some people, sensative to certain herbs, perfer to only fill capsules half or 2/3 rd's full.   You have the control!

 

How many capsules do I need to hold a teaspoon of powder?

Number of capsules needed to hold approximately one (1) teaspoon of powder:

Size 00          5 – 6             Size 0         7             Size 1         10

 

Size "0" Capsules

Size "0" is the industry standard and most popular size used for capsulated products.

  • Size "0" is about 50% smaller than size "00" and is close to the size of a nickel.
  • Each "0" capsule will hold 400 mg - 800 mg or so (5,000 mg = 1 teaspoon), depending on the powder and whether or not you use a Tamper when filling the capsules. Heavy and dense powders, such as Bentonite clay, Kelp and Spirulina, will be closer to the 800 mg range in one "0" capsule. Light and fluffy powders, such as Slippery Elm and Eleuthero root, will be closer to the 400 mg range in one "0" capsule. Of course, using a Tamper will drastically increase the amount that will fit into each capsule.

Size "00" Capsules

  • Size "00" is about 50% larger than size "0" and is nearly the size of a quarter.
  • Each "00" capsule will hold 550 mg - 1,100 mg or so (5,000 mg = 1 teaspoon), depending on the powder and whether or not you use a Tamper when filling the capsules. Heavy and dense powders, such as Bentonite clay, Kelp and Spirulina, will be closer to the 1,100 mg range in one "0" capsule. Light and fluffy powders, such as Slippery Elm and Eleuthero root, will be closer to the 550 mg range in one "0" capsule. Of course, using a Tamper will drastically increase the amount that will fit into each capsule.
  • Because none of us have a hard time swallowing capsules, this is our favorite size for use in our home. Someone that does not like to swallow capsules may prefer the smaller sized "0".
