Capping Your Own Powders?

Berberine has become one of my favorite supplements but isn't super cheap. I noticed powdered berberine was a fraction of the price and decided to test it out. I can tolerate mixing a lot of powders with flavored water but berberine is just nasty.

Anyone have a recommendation for a capsule machine they're happy with? Also wondering if there's a capsule size that would fit 1 gram of various powders.

I've got a couple of CAP-M-QUIK capsule filler machines. I've never tried anything else, but they're pretty good. If you decide on one of them, make sure you get the "tamper" with it. All supplements weigh differently, so it's hard to say which capsule size would equal one gram. But, if you start researching capsule sizes, you'll probably be able to figure out which size is right for you. (They come in size 0, 00, 000, etc. and they'll indicate basically you how much raw power they'll hold. Hope that makes sense???

I have the same one. It is not the most accurate but close enough. I weigh 10 empty caps then fill em up. After they are capped I weight 10 full caps, divide by 10 and subtract the weight of the empty to get average mg per cap.

Even harder when looking for say 50 mg per cap and you mix the powder with say creatine or such to get accurate amounts.

I use 00 caps so I get approx 1 gram per cap if I do not pack em too tight.

For berberine they would be perfect.

I use it for Tudca which also tastes horrible.

I have two types, "cap-m-quick" and "the capsule machine"
Bothell are equally as good. But the second one makes more per batch

The one thing I found was best when it comes to making your own is using a powder similar in texture as to your "good" powder
They combine better
