Haritaki capsules are a great alternative to taking haritaki in powder form!

Haritaki is from the fruit of the Haritaki tree. It is formed when the fruit is dried and ground into powder. The powder has a very strong taste for many people. So strong that many people stop taking Haritaki because of the taste. On the other hand the haritaki capsules are easy to take and leave no taste residue in the mouth. The capsules dissolve in the stomach in 1-3 minutes, depositing the haritaki in the right place to be effective

The haritaki capsules benefits are that we use are made of vegetable products so they are vegan, and have no animal products in their manufacture.

We have found that haritaki tablets still leave the taste in the mouth. Our recommendation is the haritaki capsule in vegi cap form.

We package the haritaki capsules into containers that contain 100 capsules per container. This is done so that you can use a container each month when you take 3 capsules per day.

We recommend that you order automatically so the haritaki capsules are delivered to you each month on time.

Some Capsule background for you:

Some people prefer their nutritional supplements in tablets, yet others prefer theirs in capsules. In this article, we will take a look at the technical differences between these two forms.

This summary tells us more about the benefits of capsules over tablets and powder in general:


At NOW, we continually monitor tablet disintegration. This is important because a tablet that breaks down too slowly will fail to provide the specific nutrient to critical intestinal sites, decreasing absorption and potentially causing gastrointestinal upset. As such, we have strict specifications for tablet disintegration, testing every lot to assure that it meets industry specifications.

We also check tablet friability (chipping) and hardness (breaking strength) where necessary. Our mineral tablets, for example, unlike those from many other manufacturers, disintegrate in less than 45 minutes, as specified by the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP).

We test tablets for disintegration using specialized and standardized equipment. We typically use water or simulated stomach or intestinal fluids, where required. Vinegar (acetic acid) or any other arbitrary chemical is not an appropriate test medium.

NOW’s Quality Control Department recently tested a tablet that disintegrated almost instantly when dropped into a glass of water. We are looking at newer technologies for improved tablet disintegration, because a tablet that disintegrates this fast in only water is not good. Reactivity with moisture in the air could cause tablet agglomeration or disintegration in the bottle and could potentially cause problems with swallowing.

Capsules are usually made from animal source gelatin or, if vegetarian, from starch hydrolysate or hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, a plant fiber derivative. At NOW, we strive to use the smallest capsule possible, minimizing the use of excipients.

The benefits of taking supplements in capsules rather than powder.

Are there any real advantages to using supplements in capsules rather than in powder form?

A statistics taken by the national institute of health shows that the larger population of adults in the United States take at least one dietary supplement intermittently or on a daily basis. There are various forms in which dietary supplements comes and must be taken through ingestion by the mouth whether capsules, powders, traditional tablets, energy bars or drinks. A major bone of contention which has persisted through time have been which form is most preferable with respect to effectiveness, materials, absorption and some other factors.

In order to carefully outline the differences and also assist you find the most suitable supplement between capsules and powder that will serve you and your budget the best, we’ll describe the strengths and weaknesses of the different forms.

Absorption which is a key concern of supplement buyers with respect to the different formats. Many customers are concerned that products don’t break down or absorb quickly enough or completely enough.

Capsules: This refers to a gelatin extract commonly used in supplements as a gelling agent for pharmaceuticals. A major advantage of capsules is the easy-to-swallow feature and the speedy ability to break down in the stomach excluding any nutritional advantage. Capsules have a major drawback as it is considerably more expensive than powders. Capsules does an awesome job once it is being ingested and delivers the nutrients within a very short time frame. It is widely perceived to be gentler on the stomach as compared to some other forms of supplements. Capsules are another option when it comes to taking concentrated extracts instead of the powdered herb. Capsules also makes possible the delivery of the active ingredients with very little or no mixture with any excipients. Due to the concealing advantage of unpleasant tastes, Capsules makes it very convenient for a wide majority who detest supplements in powder form to take them without having any unpleasant taste.  A drawback is that even large capsules can only hold 300 to 600 mg of powdered herb, which means that sometimes many capsules need to be taken to achieve adequate doses.


Powders: A known cost-effective form of taking supplements are powders based on a dollar-per-nutrient basis but are also the least inconvenient of all forms to use. Usage of powders requires mixture into a shake, liquid, or food. Powders offer great flexibility based on whatever dosage adjustment unlike capsules and tablets. For example, a typical 5-gram serving of creatine is easy to take; a small scoop of tasteless powder mixed in water or juice.

The use of powders allows for versatility to certain level for the manufacturer – as they can give lots of varying tastes and colors for the user. However, the dosage is controlled by the customer and therefore guidance on the dosage needs to be clearly stated for the nutrients to be effective.

In short, capsule has a wide range of advantages over powders with lesser drawbacks and have been outlined above but most importantly when it comes to ingestion of supplements based on the physical form, absorption and ease of consumption are key factors.
