Is it worth the expense to make your own supplements?
Benefits of Encapsulating at Home
Know What’s in your Capsules
Many supplements contain excipients, binders, fillers, and flow agents, that can be used to either make the ingredients stick together, bulk products up to a convenient size, or allow formulas to run smoothly through manufacturers’ machines. These can contribute to the poor disintegration rates and slower results. For this reason, HOME ENCAPSULATION is the smarter way because you’ll know what’s in your capsules and what quality you’re putting in them.
The capsule manufacturer, the distributor and the retailer, all have a cut from each sale. This brings prices up! the sale and the store where you’re buying the capsules gets an extra percent. At the end of the day they are there to make money from their business, which we all understand.
If you fill your own capsules, you don’t need to pay the middle man – that brand you like and that store where you go every month!
Making your own herbal capsules is economical. The investment that you make in purchasing herbs, the encapsulation tray and empty capsules will repay itself in the savings that you make over buying readymade supplements.
How about breaking it down with one example?
