Here’s Why Dherbs Uses Vegetarian-Based Capsules

herbal-capsules-on-spoon

Supplements have become commonplace in modern day society. From vitamins and minerals to herbal and DIY supplements, a lot of concern is placed on the composition of the capsules themselves. The health and quality of capsules are of equal importance to the ingredients within. Capsules dissolve quickly, they are tasteless, and people have an easier time swallowing them, when compared to other pills or tablets. Capsules offer their advantages, but one must understand the difference between vegetarian and gelatin capsules.

Gelatin Capsules:

Gelatin and vegetarian-based capsules look the same, but the notable difference is what each capsule is made of. Gelatin comes from bovine (cattle) or pigs, and the process involves boiling down certain parts of the animal until it is a gel-like consistency. This gel cools and expands when mixed with cold water. The resulting product is an odorless, tasteless gel capsule that most companies use to encapsulate their herbs, powders, and other supplements.

Vegetarian Capsules:

For people who have a sensitivity or difficulty digesting gelatin, vegetarian capsules are the perfect option. They are also the optimal choice for those with dietary, religious, or cultural restrictions, and they are better suited for herbs, powders, supplements, and vitamins. Vegetarian capsules are made from forming vegetable cellulose, the most common of which is Hydroxpropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC). The source of HPMC will depend on what the company uses when committing to vegetarian capsules.

What Dherbs Capsules Are Made Of:

The reason Dherbs uses vegetarian capsules is because they contain no animal byproducts, and there are no known potential risks of taking them in a long-term scenario. Dherbs’ capsules are 100% natural and non-toxic and can be stored for up to three years in a cool, dry place without the risk of bacterial growth, when compared to traditional tablets. The capsules themselves are manufactured from the following materials:

  • Hydroxpropyl methyl cellulose
  • Purified water
  • Carrageenan
  • Potassium chloride

Dherbs Capsule Allergen And Gluten Statement:

For the empty hard shell vegetarian capsules that Dherbs uses, there are no raw materials, including additives, that are used during the production process. No raw materials that are listed as allergens in EU Directive 2000/13/EC or its amendments that have their origin in cereals, crustaceans, peanuts, gluten, eggs, fish, soybeans, milk, nuts, celery, sesame seeds, mollusks, wheat, mustard, corn and/or lupin are in the capsules. The capsules are also free of sulfur dioxide or sulfites at concentrations of more than 100 ppm. The vegetable capsules that Dherbs uses are free of the specified known allergy stimulating substances.

Dherbs Non-GMO Declaration:

Dherbs’ vegetable capsules are guaranteed not to contain GMOs (genetically modified organisms) as defined by the EU “Organic” Regulation 2093/91 and UKROFS, the Soil Association Standards for Organic Food and Farming (new Section 2.4) prohibit the use of genetically modified organisms* (GMOs) and products derived from them in organic production systems and organic products. These capsules are not derived from or produced using GMOs or their derivatives, and the capsules never come in contact with any genetically modified substances.

    Q: Liquid verses capsules; Which one will allow more weight loss?

    A: The difference between the capsule version of the Full Body Cleanse and the Liquid Cleanse is within its potency. The Liquid Cleanse is less potent due the extraction of herbs being converted from plant to liquid form. This information is included on the product page of the Liquid Cleanse.  The capsules are always going to produce better results.  You can exchange the product if you like, it would need to be within 15 days of receiving it.

    Q: Hello, I'm very interested in your Full Body Cleanse programs, but I'm confused, as to what program would be best for me. I have a lot of trouble with taking herbs in pill or capsule form. It's either extremely hard for me to get them down, or they just pop right back up. I was interested in the Full body cleanse in the capsule form, after reading the description on your site, but I don't know if I should buy it in Children's Detox & just take more than the recommended dose (I'm 27 yrs. old), or should I buy the Full Body Cleanse Tea, is the tea the same as the capsules, is it as effective as the capsules? When doing the cleanse can you eat steamed veggies? Will I see gallstones in my poop? How many capsules, how often? Can I open the capsules, & put them in tea? Do you have any advice on vitamins, whole food supplements?

    A:

    We offer a liquid alternative Full Body Liquid Cleanse for those that have trouble swallowing capsules. You may also order the regular Full Body Cleanse and open adn empty the content of the capsules into water or fresh fruit juice.

    During the cleanse, we recommend an all RAW FOODS diet. Vegetables should be eaten raw, and not steamed, as to retain their nutritional content.

    In the Full Body Cleanse (with capsules), there are 6 formulas to take 2-3 hours apart, 5 capsules at a time.

    A:

    You are overloading your body! Spread those supplements out throughout your day. Take 6 of them at a time every 3 hours or so. This is best for your body!

    Sarsaparilla
    Kelp
    Licorice Root
    Oregon Grape Root

    Q: I purchased the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN kit. I began taking the regimen of capsules. For breakfast I had water and a banana. For lunch I ate a homemade vegetable soup (chicken broth and veggies). By 2:00 p.m. I began to regurgitate profusely. What did I do wrong? Should I expect to be physically ill after taking the capsules?

    A:

    Chicken broth? That's animal-based! No animal products, Beloved! If you continue to vomit lower the dosage of the capsules from 5 down to 2 or 3 (for a few days and then work yourself back up).

    Q: My daughter continues to take 2 capsules of Cardio-Vascular Formula at night, 2 capsules of Brain Tuner in the morning, and 1 at night. Also, using the Children Detox Oxy-Drops. However, she still experiences palpitation, every morning when she wakes up from her sleep. She will get a severe epilepsy attack every 10 days, or forthnightly. The cycle seems to repeat itself.

    Give her Gingko Biloba, and Gotu Kola, preferably in tea, or liquid extract form. Also consider our Magical Alchemical Elixir. Give her our Heart Heart tea too! Clearly there's a problem with her heart, so target the heart!

    Q: What is your opinion on acidophilus, biotin and lutein? Also is gelatin in capsules bad?

    A:

    We prefer the consumption of herbal compounds, as opposed to chemically produced supplements. Instead of taking biotin, lutein, or acidophilus as a chemical based supplement, these things are found naturally in food. Carrot juice and Ginger (capsules) can eradicate the need for acidophilus. Biotin is found in natural herbs such as horsetail, rosemary, and sage. I Lutein is found in calendula (marigold flowers).

    Dherbs uses vegetable capsules, which are preferred. Gelatin capsules are animal derived and difficult for the body to break down (digest), unlike vegetarian capsules.

    A:

    Both alfalfa and devil claw are plants that are commonly used for health treatments. As long as the supplements are natural you should be able to empty the contents into freshly squeezed juices, smoothies and herbal teas. Most gel capsules are simply just to mask the taste of the contents.
