How to Make Your Own Supplements at Home

NOW offers quality powdered vitamins, minerals, and herbs that are ideal for making your own encapsulated supplements. Powdered supplements for home encapsulation require no fillers or binders, are lower in cost, and can be measured or mixed to create specific blends and potencies. Filling your own capsules can save you up to 50% off the retail price of pre-packaged supplements. Here's how to do it at home!

What You'll Need:

  • - A scale that can measure in grams
  • - Gelatin capsules (size "000")
  • - A funnel
  • - A small spoon or scoop
  • - Vitamin or mineral powder
  • - An optional empty pill bottle for storage
  • - Potassium sorbate (to prevent oxidation and maintain potency)

Here's a quick guide on how to make your own supplements at home:

  • 1. Measure the POWDERED vitamin or mineral using the SCALE. The 000 gelatin capsules can hold about 1,230 mg.
  • 2. Using the FUNNEL, fill each capsule HALFWAY with the powder. Be sure not to overfill!
  • 3. If you are not using a BINDER, lightly tap each capsule so the powder settles before filling the rest of the way. If you ARE using a binder such as rice flour, fill the remainder of the capsule so it is heaping but not overflowing.
  • 4. Gently MOISTEN the top half of each filled capsule with a few drops of water from a cup or eyedropper. This will make it easier to close the capsule without losing any powder.
  • 5. CAP each filled gelatin capsule by holding it upright and pressing down on the upper half until it snaps into place. If necessary, use tweezers or another small tool to help align the edges of the capsule halves as you close them.
  • 6. Store your finished product in an airtight container such as an empty pill bottle, away from heat and light.

Adding potassium sorbate will help prevent oxidation and maintain potency/shelf life. And that's it! You've now made your own supplement at home—for a fraction of the cost of store-bought options!

Conclusion: Making your own supplements at home is easy, affordable, and allows you to customize both the ingredients and potency to fit your specific needs! Just remember to take care when measuring and filling each capsule, as too much or too little powder can result in an ineffective supplement. Have fun experimenting with different combinations until you find what works best for you!
