Given that one of the rather few supplements I regularly take is way cheaper in bulk than in tablet or capsule form, I decided that it would be a good idea to encapsulate it myself and got myself a capsule machine in size 00.

 

Nevertheless I'm now suddenly curious what other people might put into capsules and why. I'm especially interested in things that go beyond the usual bulk powders and more in the direction of herbs or self made mixtures for example. Things I and maybe others never even thought about before.

Since capsules tends to be rather expensive I encapsulate only what has to be taken in such tiny amounts it would be troublesome to dose otherway, some supplements are very nasty taste wise and someone might prefer to encapsulate them in order to avoid the unpleasant experience.

 

I did reduce a lot what I encapsulate these days...theanine and melatonine mix is one of those since I find the two to go well along before sleep and melatonine itself needs such tiny amounts (for example 1-3 mg) that mixing it with something else is in practice mandatory, 00 capsules in this case are just fine for about 300mg theanine plus 3mg melatonine.

 

I am not aware of any product of such kind on the market.

 

Some dislike the acid feeling on the teeth of ascorbic acid, encapsulation here will solve the issue.

 

Some other quite common nasty tasting supplements are grape seeds extract, alpha lipoic acid and long jack.

 

Anyway one is free to encapsulate whatever he wishes to.

Acetyl L- Carnitine from Bulk Supplements because it is acidic and will damage your teeth if you take it free form..

 

other than that nothing but occasionally I'll put some Oil of oregano with some coconut or olive oil in a cap if I have some  GI pest issue like mild food poisoning or  c.diff etc.
