Love that these are only gelatin & water. No other junk! But with that being said... they are not veggie caps. They are bovine - so they are gelatin from Cattle! I'd prefer a veggie cap. The #3 size is approx 1/2 long and fits 150 mg - 200mg of powder. So it is on the smaller size - which I like and smaller is so hard to find now-a-days. The bag says this is "the smallest empty capsule size available". It took me a while to figure this out and learn that the number represents the size. The higher the number, the smaller the capsule . For example size 0 is a larger capsule (holds more) than size 3. So if you want a small amount (like 200mg) choose a higher capsule size like the #3. If you want a bigger amount choose a number closer to 0 or 00 our 000.

Size 000 Capsules are Fantastic! They hold about 1 tsp. of powder. I fill many powdered supplements with these when the taste of the natural product is unbearable. You can even stuff ground fresh garlic in these when you need fresh garlic therapeutically. Even though I have swallowing difficulties, I can swallow these with a big gulp of water or a thicker fluid. I'm allergic to the vegetarian capsules as many are made from PINE. I love that they are bovine gelatin!

Now that my husband and i are getting older, we have several daily meds we have to take. Purchased the empty gel caps to put our meds in, so instead of taking 3 or 4 meds in the a.m., just take 1 capsule. Also helps to avoid taking wrong meds since there are some that are similar in size and shape. Just works for us. 90 day supply, an hour or so to fill them, good for 3 months. By the way, we purchased the 000 size, but iherb offers several sizes.

Just what I needed. I purchased an amino acid in powder form (Tryptophan) that I forgot was quite bitter in taste & difficult to mix with liquid as the powder tends to float on any liquid. so, with this capsules I just scoop the amino acid into these capsules. I have not had an difficulty opening the capsules. Nor have I noted any imperfections so far. Thanks NOW company - I continue to trust your products.

They last me for years. They're just the correct size, small enough to easily swallow but not too small. I even cut some larger pills in half that I have difficulties swallowing and I put those in these capsules so that way they're much easier to swallow. Or I pack a few smaller pills in a single cap instead of swallowing each pill separately.

I use these to fill with Grapefruit Seed Extract and take with a large glass of water. Be careful while filling to not let GSE drip on the outside of the capsule as you will most definitely taste the bitterness once you place capsule in your mouth. As a precaution I always wipe the filled capsule with a tissue. These capsules , being of the larger size are great for filling with turmeric.

I have big hands, so filling 0 size or even 00 size caps with my special herb powder means a lot of Fumbling. These caps are a lot bigger, easier to Fill. Of course, you have to be able to swallow them. Best to drink something warm first to relax the throat, then swallow one at a time with more warm liquid. The upside is that since they hold so much more, you don't have to take so many to get your full dose.

I use these to make my own capsules with various powders and amino acids. The quality is great and the large 1000 caps size is an added benefit. The package is vacuum sealed until opened for ease of storage. Great value for money and easy to use with a capsule filling machine.

I have not actually used these yet but they came fast and were packed well with no damage. I chose these because of composition and price. I was looking for the smallest size caps because I have trouble swallowing large caps. The value is fantastic; this was the smallest amount I could buy and I can share them with others who might need a few capsules. Since these are also to be used for administering multiple meds in one cap to my cat, I was looking for the smallest capsules possible since he is hard to pill. I would buy from iHerb again; fantastic value, careful packing, fast shipping, quality products and a lot of choices - plus free shipping once the low minimum is reached.
