In our very first blog post, we talked about some of the many benefits of making your own capsules. Saving money, reducing excess packaging waste, and the ability to control exactly what goes into your capsule, right down to the capsule itself, were at the top of this list.
An added benefit to making your own capsules is the ability to choose the sizes you want. Larger capsules, such as the 000s can simplify adults' supplement routines by consolidating multiple dosages. These larger capsules are also used to dispense medications and supplements to large pets such as dogs and horses. Smaller capsules such as 0s and 1s are easier to swallow, making them highly suitable for children and smaller pets. See our detailed capsule size chart for more information.

The ability to choose from a wide variety of colored capsules can also be of benefit. Choosing your own unique colors when making your own supplements allows you to color code your capsules according to their characteristics or type. See our post of "Why Colored Capsules?" for more reasons to use colored capsules.
