What is an honest placebo pill?
Open or honest placebos are a new concept. A person who takes an honest placebo pill knows it is a placebo. There is no deceit—the placebo is labeled “Placebo”. A honest placebo is exactly that: a pleasing design to help you feel better – it does not pretend to be anything else.
What is a pure placebo?
Historically, sugar has often been used as a filler for placebos (placebos also known as sugar-pills). However, sugar is somewhat of an active ingredient, so it can cause problems for people with, for example, diabetes. Fillers in pure placebo capsules are inert—they pass through the body without much interaction.
What is a branded placebo?
Today, brands play a tremendous role in the marketing of products and services. Brands convey meaning that reaches the subconscious. Branded placebos harvest the power of modern marketing to promote well-being. Each Zeebo honest placebo pill was produced by a high-end manufacturer in the US. Zeebo pills come in the Zeebo brand color in light blue and white, with the Zeebo logo printed on the white section of the cap. Zeebo placebo capsules are unique. Zeebo – The Healing Brand.

What is in Zeebo capsules?
We use an inert filler called microcrystalline cellulose (MCC). MCC is pure, natural fiber. The design of Zeebo is a key element in your placebo experience, so a very small amount of food colorants (Red #1 and Blue #3) is used to give Zeebo gelatin capsules their perfect look. All ingredients are sourced from and processed by certified manufacturers in the USA.
