You could buy turmeric capsules ready made for between $15 and $25 per 100, depending on the ingredients hype and colourful bottles, or you could make them yourself for around $3.50 per 100 capsules using a small amount of your own time and effort. It is so easy to do and The Capsule Guy has everything to get you started on this journey. We even have some clear jars to easily identify your stored herbal capsules. Buy empty gelatin capsules and a filler machine from The Capsule Guy and start your journey to better health.
Naturally, the cheapest way is to grow your own herbs, but you will still save money using powdered herbs bought from your local supermarket or health food store.
Most commercially packed herbal capsules use either the size 00 or 0 capsules. You can easily buy either vegetable based or gelatin capsules online along with a simple filler machine. Each capsule size is specific to the size of the filler machine you purchase, ie one size per machine.
Vegetable capsules are made from plant cellulose from the Poplar tree and food grade beef gelatine is used to make gelatine capsules. All capsules are gluten free, preservative free, Halal and free from BSE and TSE. They generally have a lifespan up to 4 years, which means you could potentially save more money by purchasing larger quantities to get a bulk discount.
Making herbal capsules at home can be a great way to take control of your health and wellness. Here are the steps to make herbal capsules at home:
Choose your herbs: Choose the herbs you want to use and make sure they are safe to consume. You can use dried herbs or grind fresh herbs into a powder.
Grind the herbs: Use a mortar and pestle or coffee grinder to grind the herbs into a fine powder.
Fill the capsules: Follow the instructions for your capsule-filling machine to fill the empty capsules with the powdered herbs.
Store the capsules: Store the capsules in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.
Before taking any herbal supplements, it's always a good idea to consult with your healthcare provider to make sure they are safe for you to use and won't interact with any medications you may be taking.
