Make your own Turmeric capsules (by Jill Moore)
The beauty of making your own Turmeric capsules is it allows you to know how much turmeric you are taking – easy to control up and down by 1/4 teaspoon (1 capsule) at a time.
It’s also a great solution for travelling. You can take capsules on the occasions when you have to dash out the door, or are not having a meal that you can include turmeric paste or powder in.
Best of all, you have the convenience of a capsule and the knowledge that you are still consuming turmeric in a reasonable and more sustainable method than the concentrated tablets and capsules available commercially (see Turmeric FAQ for more details). Win/Win.
1. Essential Items
Buy a capsule maker and empty vegeterian/gelatin capsules. You can purchase these online or your local health food store.
Note: 00 is a good size = 1/4 tsp, or 0 (slightly smaller) for capsules.
2. The Setup
Use something wide as a container to scoop your turmeric out.
Get an old towel or something that will gather up the loose turmeric powder to throw over your table while you work. A cutting board, or something similar, under the capsule maker also allows you to periodically tilt the fallen turmeric back into your container.
As a general rule – 4 x ’00’ capsules make 1 level teaspoon, approximately, of turmeric powder.
3. The Ingredients
You can add ground pepper and other supplements at this stage (such as Powerstance powdered coconut oil, or ginger and so on) BUT you will need to calculate the balance of ingredients and measure your dosage.

Most people prefer to make Turmeric Capsules by just adding turmeric in the capsules and then take the capsules with a meal that has cracked pepper on it and the oil (or an healthy fat, which will often be in the meal too). This will help increase the bio-availability of your home-made turmeric capsules.

Remember, turmeric powder that has on average 3% – 5% curcumin (possibly a little higher in some batches) is effective and can be safely used daily for a lifetime in most cases. Always check first with your treating doctor if you have any chronic health issues, or if you have any doubts.
PLEASE NOTE: Pure Curcumin capsules, (ie. @ 95% curcumin) are NOT recommended by this website, due to possible liver damage.
