The Capsule Machine allows you to fill your own capsules with your favorite supplement powders, herbs, or botanicals easily and quickly.
We’ve found a way to encapsulate your herbs, botanicals, and amino acids at home! It’s called The Capsule Machine. It automatically joins and ejects filled capsules, is faster and easier to use than other products & can fill up to 24 capsules in just a few minutes. The Capsule Machine comes complete with base, stand, top, tamper, spread card, and desiccant (drying) bag – all you need are empty capsules and your ingredients and you’re good to go.
By filling your own capsules at home, you may:
Save money by buying pure powders instead of pre-made capsule products
Make your own custom mix of ingredients and encapsulate it yourself
Avoid fillers and additives commonly used in pre-made capsule products
The Capsule Machine allows you to make 24 size ‘00’ capsules in about 3 minutes. You can now store the capsules you’ve made even longer with a reusable desiccant bag; this prevents the capsule from getting damaged by humidity. A tamper is provided and allows more power to pack into each capsule, and the entire ‘Capsule Machine’ is dishwasher safe.
The Capsule Machine is a great value at $20.00 and together with empty capsules and empty bottles or bags– making your own supplement capsules at home can save you money compared to pre-made encapsulated products.
Please keep in mind that the process of hand encapsulation – even with such a wonderful product – can be somewhat cumbersome and possibly inaccurate so we do suggest buying pre-made capsules whenever possible or using a powder measurement scale to ensure that you are filling your capsules to the amount that you intend.

The only materials of The Capsule Machine that are in contact with food are ABS and Delrin Acetal plastics.
ABS plastic material adheres to requirements regarding contact with food and drinking water, which have been established by the Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Health Office, the den Regulations of the British Plastics Organization, and the Bedarfsgegenständeverordnung as well as other national and international regulations. ABS has good chemical and stress-cracking resistance to inorganic salt solutions, alkalis, mineral acids (except strong oxidizing acids), and some mineral, vegetable, and animal oils. Petroleum-based oils, solvents, and paints SHOULD NOT BE USED, as they will cause the material to craze. There is a possibility that the plastic can be damaged by powders with a high oil content of eugenol. Eugenol is an essential oil that is contained in herbs such as cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and bay leaf.
The two springs of The Capsule Machine are made of Delrin Acetal plastic. This material adheres to the regulations established by the Food and Drug Administration for repeated contact with food and the regulations established by The National Sanitation Foundation for use in drinkable water.
The spreader card included with all capsule machines is made of PVC.
Made in the USA
Since the materials in the Capsule Machine can melt at temperatures close to 180 degrees F., care is necessary if using a dishwasher. The heat function on many dishwashers can exceed the maximum temperature. Washing with hot soapy water normally does the job. Take care if you are taking the springs off the base or top of the Capsule Machine. Make sure you pry the springs gently off the tabs holding them in place. And when you want to reinsert the springs, insert one side under the tab, and then the others. Some powders may stain any plastic surface, such as the Capsule Machine surfaces.
While The Capsule Machine is made to fill powders, many customers have used it for years to fill liquids. Note that water causes the capsule material to soften and dissolve. So any capsules filled with a liquid that contains water must be consumed promptly.
You will need to use a dropper or pipette to fill the capsules individually. After finishing the encapsulating process, you may want to keep the filled capsules at a cool temperature. This will make most liquids thicker and less runny – making it less probable that there will be leakage where the body and top of the capsule are joined together.
