A guide to knowing the differences of capsules

Capsule Material
Capsules come in a variety of materials. The most common is bovine gelatin. MitraSpec's standard capsules are bovine gelatin, but we also have a vegan option made from Pullman.

Capsules come in many sizes
Capsule sizes range from #5 the smallest to #000 the largest. MitraSpec uses only #000 capsules.

Know how much powder is in each capsule

This is one of the most important factors to consider. The most common capsules are #00 size and only contain 400mg to 600mg of powder each. MitraSpec's #000 capsules contain 800mg of pure powder.
