Nourishing Vita-Caps were a nutritional supplement available in the galaxy sometime after the Battle of Yavin during the Galactic Civil War, a series of conflicts between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic. They were meant to be used as a quick, nourishing "meal" that would satisfy a sentient's energy needs while being portable and quickly consumable.
Behind the scenes
Nourishing Vita-Caps appeared as a reusable "buff" item in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, which was released on June 26, 2003 and shut down on December 15, 2011. The Vita-Caps were a reward from an optional quest that could be obtained during the Legacy quest line, specifically the portion taking place on the planet Naboo; the quest was titled "The Life and Death of Jonni Skaak" and had the player follow Jonni's journey from Royal Naboo Security Forces agent to leader of the Skaak Tippers. Once completed, the player would receive the Vita-Caps as a reward. They could be used to increase the player's constitution statistic by twenty for fifteen minutes, which would increase the player's health by a small amount.
