Benefits Of Making Your Own Supplement
There are many reasons why you should start making your own supplements.
First, it is quite easy and simple to do so. All you need are the ingredients and the right equipment.
Secondly, you know exactly what you are putting in your body. You can also customize the supplements you are taking according to your own body weight, requirements, age and any personal objectives or goals you may have. We have all heard the term “one size fits all” but in the case of supplements, the body’s needs differ from one person to the next.
Thirdly, you can save loads of money. After investing in the right tools and equipment, you can literally save up to 90% of your budget for supplements. If you spend $150 for a monthly supplement, you can save up to $1500 in the space of a year.
Making Your Own Sports Supplement
Before starting out, it is important to determine the supplement type that you want. There are several kinds of supplements available.
Once you determine your supplement type, it is easy to obtain the ingredients that would meet your needs. Tons of these ingredients are sold in health stores or online and you can find books in online stores like Amazon to help you with concocting the right recipe.
As you find the recipe that appeals to you, it is time to gather the ingredients and the tools that you will need. In making your own supplement, you need three important things – (a) active ingredients, (b) binding agents and (c) tablet press.
Active ingredients – these ingredients are what you put in the capsule or tablet. These raw ingredients are available online or in natural health stores.
Binding Agent – binding agents bind together your entire active ingredients. All you have to do is to mix the binding agent with the active ingredients, and the tablet’s formula is done. There are many different pill mixes that are available to buy like Firmapress from LFA Tablet Presses.
Tablet Press – if you are making supplements for personal consumption, a handheld tablet press is what you want. There are tons of online tutorials on “how to use a handheld press” that you can check out.
Making your own supplement ensures that you have the right ingredients that your body needs and prevents you from taking other ingredients that might not be ideal for your goal/objective. This also helps you save money, as the cost is lower making it the perfect solution to achieve your goals.
