These are incredibly easy to fill by hand. I am using them for the ingestion of essential oils and simply separated the two parts of the capsule, filled them with my oil mixture using a small dropper, and put the capsule back together. I've stored the made-up caps at both room temperature and in the freezer with no problems. I was advised they would be easier to swallow when frozen, but I prefer them at room temperature. They are slightly larger than a Tylenol, but smaller than a fish oil capsule. I find them very easy to swallow.
WHY BUY MY OWN CAPSULES?
There are many reasons why you may want to fill your own capsules. Supplements purchased in bulk powder can save a small fortune over pre-packaged capsules. You can also mix your own supplements to a formula you cannot buy. I use these to mix four different ingredients aimed at improving concentration...there is no pre-packaged capsule for this, so I would otherwise have to take 4 different pills. With affordable capsule-making machines such as The Capsule Machine, the process is very easy and a small time expenditure can save quite a lot of money.
NOW FOODS OFFERS BOTH GELATIN AND VEGAN CAPSULES...AND BOTH ARE GREAT!
These particular capsules are gelatin-sourced meaning they DO use animal products here. Now Foods also makes vegan capsules in this and other sizes. I have also used the vegan capsules and their quality is just as good as these. This is nice as it gives consumers a choice...usually, the vegan capsules are pricier, but sometimes the opposite is true since prices change all the time. So if you don't have a preference for one type vs the other, it is worth checking the listing of both and regular and vegan capsules to see which is cheapest.
SIZE & VOLUME
These capsules are "00" size, and I consider that to be a medium-large size for a capsule. Because the density of different supplements vary a lot, estimating how much product each capsule can hold is difficult. I would guesstimate that it can range at least from 300 mg to 1,000+ mg of material. I really tend to like this 00 size because it is big enough that you can fit quite a lot in it (potentially avoiding the need to take multiple smaller capsules), but it is not so large that it is difficult to swallow.
SO HOW ARE THEY? -- WHAT I LIKE
If I had to pick a single word to describe the Now Foods capsules (both regular and vegan), it would be 'consistent'. When you buy hundreds of capsules, consistency is what you want. You want capsules that have a consistent weight, consistent dimensions, consistently tight fitment, and consistent quality without deformed capsules. Now Foods delivers in these areas, where as some other capsules I have used have not. Of special importance here is weight consistency, which these have.
The packaging uses a thick-walled bag, and the capsules are clearly packaged in a room where the environmental controls were optimal for product quality because these do not stick to each other, there are no variations in size, and there are no deformities. This also indicates Now Foods has an excellent system of quality control.
These DO work with automatic/automated capsule filling devices and these work GREAT with The Capsule Machine (another great product.) Do note that like any other capsules, you want to store them in a tightly sealed container and avoid environments that are extremely hot, cold, or humid.
Overall, the product consistency is what makes these capsules better than most others. The price isn't unreasonable at all, and you are getting a product of better quality that is going to be easier to work with. So I highly recommend Now Foods capsules.
