Question Empty capsules

I am just wondering if it is possible to buy empty capsules. I have a whole bottle of Melatonin caps but they are 10 mil and that isn't needed. So I thought if I could find some holders I could empty half of them into new one instead of throwing it out? Thanks...

Re: Empty capsules

Many health food store that sell bulk herbs also sell capsule's and capsule fillers.
Also check out Monterey Bay Spice Company. Depending on where you find them, they run between $4.00 to $15.00 for 500 caps.

Re: Empty capsules


I think you can just take half the capsule and put it into food or tea or juice. I would check with your health food store but I think you can.

Re: Empty capsules

Thanks everyone, I never thought about the healthfood stores. I will have to check on putting it in with the food? Good idea too!
