Accessories: The Capsule Machine

Instructions

Size "0" Capsule Machine

  • 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.
  • Gelatin Capsules not included.

Size "00" Capsule Machine

  • 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".
  • Gelatin Capsules not included.

Love this machine!
by Ericka on Mar 9, 2014

I have just purchased the "0" size capsule machine. It was so easy! In the first batch, I did have one capsule jam. But after that, they came out perfect every time. My husband is VERY picky when it comes to food & doesn't like to try anything new, but now I can make sure that he gets the nutrition & care that he needs. Thank you!

How many capsules for Bentonite Clay?
by Olivia on Jan 4, 2014

If I'd like to take your bentonite clay internally, how many capsules should I take of it per day?

dishwasher safe?

Is this dishwasher safe?

    We contacted our supplier about that and they said the spreader card seems to be affected by the heat of some dishwashers. Otherwise, the rest of the parts work OK on the top rack. Thanks!

Kids can do it - well!
by Jeannie on Nov 11, 2012

Making capsules is so much fun that I decided to reward my kids by letting them make them for me. They did at least as well as I can do it - even my 7 year old, and they are so proud of themselves! They can't wait for me to dry and powder more moringa leaves to make more capsules! We made almost 1000 of the size "0" this time. I need more capsules and the "00" machine next. Thanks so much for offering this amazingly simple machine that makes such a professional-looking product.

So much fun!
by Alisha Lopez on Jun 11, 2012

I recieved my Capsule Machine today! I was so excited I quickly opened the box and began filling my capsules! I have been wanting to take Spirulina but I can't get passed the dark green color my shakes turn into. So I decided to fill some capsules with Spirulina and boy was that fun! And super easy! My 11 and 8 year old daughters had fun filling some also! This is an awesome product! Thanks Bulk Herb store!

works perfect!
by Brian Smith on Jun 11, 2012

I recently bought one of these from you, and it works perfectly. I sit and make capsules while I help my little ones with their schooling. It's a great little tool. I've been using it to make kelp, spirulina, and beet root capsules. Those capsules sure help me get that spirulina where it needs to go. :)

Saves me money
by Andy Cook on Jun 11, 2012

This is an excellent investment. I formulated an Adrenal formula for myself that is working well and saving me about $.3o per capsule when compared to the formula I was taking from the health food store. This truly will save you the cost of the product in just a few uses. Wonderful product—thanks for adding it to your inventory. May the Lord richly bless you.

Curious
by Cindy on May 16, 2012

REceived my products the other day! Already started using the Bentonite Clay, but wanted to confirm that it's OK to take it in capsule form? I also purchased the "0" capsule machine, so how many capsules should I take daily? I'm 5'1" and weigh 114. Are the benefits of taking it in H20 better v in pill form?

I love your herbs! And I have never tasted better Peppermint. I've started mixing teas for friends, and they love your herbs, too. :) My kids (almost 3 and almost 2) caught a cold at church a few weeks ago, and I've been giving them plain peppermint tea to help clear their noses when they get too stuffy. They think it's the best treat, and love it. My daughter especially loves the Sleepy Time Tea with Chamomile flowers. It's become our nightly 'thing' to have a cup of tea and read a bedtime or Bible story. Also, the Nutritional Herbology book has been of great help to me, and since I've started using Red Raspberry in most of my teas, my not-so-fun monthly female cramps have almost disappeared! Thank you so much for offering your herbs at such wonderful prices. I can't find better prices anywhere.
