It is scary to think about the fact that you cannot even use regular capsules without having concern over what they place in your body. The easy answer is to use these gelatin capsules. The purple and white color make them stand out and can help remind you what you have placed inside them. They are great for supplements, vitamins, herbs, and any powder. And when you use them you are getting something that is 100% BSE free and 100% gelatin. No preservatives or other items that companies sneak into other capsules.
