How I Make Turmeric Capsules

After posting this post, I have been asked by several people how I make the turmeric capsules I mentioned making.  Here goes ....

I use 00 capsules that I order from Amazon.

I use turmeric that I either purchase in bulk from the little non-electric Mennonite store I get to go to a couple of times of year or from The Bulk Herb Store online.



You can use a capsule machine if you want, but I don't.  I just open up the capsules and scoop/fill, tap/shake it down and scoop/fill again, then put the cap on the capsule.

That's it, that's all I do.

I take one capsule in the morning and one in the evening for arthritis and inflammation.  It really helps me and I can tell a big difference when I don't take it for several days.  (Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, what works for me may or may not work for you.  Please consult your doctor before trying this remedy.)

One other thing I do to try to help control inflammation, arthritis pain and stiffness, in addition to taking turmeric capsules, is to avoid as much sugar as possible.  When I 'intentionally' slip and have a big dose of sugar I feel the difference the next day.  (Yes, I do 'intentionally' slip from time to time!)

I hope I've answered your questions.  If not, feel free to re-ask in the comments below.

  1. Patsy I have been able to find tumeric from an international store and was wondering how to make capsules! Because yuck I don't like tumeric. But I have osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia and I have heard it helps. I was wondering besides the making of them is there an aftertaste? I don't use fish oil anymore I don't like the burps lol

    1. Jaime, I don't notice an aftertaste nor do I experience any digestive issues from them. As for how to fill them, I just open up the capsules, fill the bigger part, shake it down, fill again and then put the cap on it.

  2. Hi Patsy, I have read that you should have a specific kind of Tumeric. One with all the benefits, not the fillers? Trying to remember what it said. Anyway I want to start taking this but want to get the most beneficial Tumeric I can. Any suggestions? :)
    Thanks,
    Bobbi

    1. Bobbi, I have not sought out a specific kind of tumeric. I purchase powdered tumeric from the little Mennonite store I get to go to a couple of times a year. I've also used tumeric powder purchased at the grocery store and haven't been able to tell any difference in the effectiveness of the two. Both work great for me! I hope this helps!

  3. I've been reading about Turmeric and so I'm interested in your findings. Do you add any pepper? I've read that is necessary. Also, may I ask if you are on medication? I wondered if you have to be careful about mixing the two.

    1. Living on Less Money, I do add black pepper to the turmeric before filling the capsules and I do take a couple of medications on a regular basis but have not had any issues with mixing the the turmeric capsules with them.
