The tools you need

WHEN YOU ORDER YOUR STARTER PACK, YOU GET ALL THE EQUIPMENT YOU NEED TO CREATE YOUR OWN SUPPLEMENTS. THE EQUIPMENT IS MINIMAL AND RELATIVELY EASY TO USE. THESE ARE THE ITEMS YOU WILL RECEIVE. NOTE: YOU CAN ALSO PURCHASE TOOLS SEPARATELY IF YOU PREFER.

Tools included in the Starter Pack

Vegetarian Capsules

If you are creating you own supplement in capsules, these are the number 1 item on your list. We use size 00 capsules that fit approximately 400 – 1000mg of supplement powder but this will vary depending on the powder density. On average they fit 650mg.

The Capsule Machine

The capsule machine allows you to fill up 24 capsules at a time – as it automatically joins and ejects filled capsules, making it fast and easy to use.

The Milligram Scale

The Milligram scale is used to accurately weigh the ingredients used to fill the capsules. The scale measures weights from 0.01g-300g.

PACKAGING

You will need packaging to store your completed capsules or powder blends. We have various types of containers and pouches available on our website. The Starter Pack includes one powder bottle, one capsule bottle and one pouch.

SILICA GEL PACKS

These are to be put into the packaging containers with your capsules or powders to keep any moisture away and keep your supplements fresh.

MORTAR AND PESTLE

The mortar and pestle is essential for homogenising and mixing your supplement powders and fillers.

SIEVE

You will need a sieve to help break up and blend powders together. Especially if you are using a powder that has a tendency to clump together.

ITEMS PURCHASED SEPARATELY

INGREDIENTS

The ingredients come in powder form and are of the highest quality. They can be purchased from our website.

PLASTIC BOTTLES (Beverages)

Plastic bottles for your beverage creations. They can be purchased from our website.

TINCTURE BOTTLES

Glass tincture bottles to hold the tincture solution. They can be purchased from our website.

NASAL SPRAY

Nasal spray bottles. They can be purchased from our website.

DROPPER BOTTLES

Glass dropper bottles to hold your solution. They can be purchased from our website.

FILLERS

Fillers are only used if you are not completely filling your capsules with your chosen supplement powder. Adding a filler, will ensure each capsule is properly and evenly filled. Almost any edible non-reactive powdered material, including kitchen staples like baking soda, corn starch and flour can be used as a filler – but these add little nutritional content to the finished product. Other popular fillers include creatine and glutamine, which can be complementary to your chosen supplements, while providing the necessary bulk filling agent. You can also use other supplement powders from our additives product range.

MIXING AGENTS

Mixing agents can help to ensure you create a well-mixed homogeneous powder blend. Some powders will not mix well together and using a mixing agent will help the mixing process and help keep the powder blends mixed together over time. See our additives product range.

FLAVOURS & TASTE ENHANCERS

These are important if the powder blend you are creating has an unpleasant taste. See our additives product range for options.

Powder blends

CYO powder blends

Accuracy is crucial to getting optimal results.

 

When you’re ready to start creating your own powder blends, chose a suitable time and place to ensure you’re not rushed and set aside an hour when you will be free of interruptions, then get your equipment arranged on a stable surface where you have plenty of room.

 

Then simply follow these step by step instructions.

 

STEP 1

Select your ingredients and the amounts you want.

 

STEP 2

Decide if you want to use flavours, sweeteners or taste maskers.

 

STEP 3

Consider the properties of each ingredient. Does one clump together or is it hygroscopic (absorbs moisture). If the properties are not suitable for uniform mixing, then you may want to consider using another substance to help with the mixing process and to ensure your mixture stays mixed together and does not clump back together. Silica is one such substance that can be used for this. It is usually mixed with other powders in amounts of 0.5 – 2% of total powder blend volume.

 

STEP 4

Weigh out your ingredients with an accurate scale.

 

STEP 5

Sieve each ingredient to ensure it is a fine uniform powder with no lumps. If you have any lumps use a mortar and pestle to grind (triturate) the lumps into a fine powder.

STEP 6

Mix your ingredients together using the geometric dilution technique – slowly combining your ingredients at small portions at a time. For example, if you are mixing two powders, take the powder of the smaller amount and place in the pestle. Then add the other powder but only at an equal amount to the lesser powder, leaving the rest out of the mixture for now. Finely grind (triturate) the powder with the mortar and pestle so it is completely mixed (Homogeneous). Add an amount of the remaining powder equal to what is in the pestle. Repeat the process until all the powder is mixed and homogeneity is achieved. If you are mixing powders that are different colours, then you will easily be able to see how well it is mixing. If you are mixing two powders of similar colours, then you could use a food grade dye in with the powders to ensure the homogeneity of the mixture.

 

STEP 7

After the mixing is done you can package in it a bag or container. Some powders such as herbs may need a Silica Gel bag included in the container to keep the moisture away.

 

Warning: It is extremely important to note the safety of the powders used. You can find safety information on a Safety Data Sheet (SDS). Ensure adequate ventilation is used and if the powders are unsafe to inhale then use safety masks or breathing apparatuses to avoid inhaling the substances.

It is also important to ensure mixing is completed correctly and the ingredients are in the correct proportions uniformly throughout the mixture otherwise you will risk taking incorrect dosages of your ingredients which could be dangerous or even fatal. If you have any doubts about the mixture do not take it.

CYO Capsules

Single Supplement Capsules (Easy)

Accuracy is crucial to getting optimal results.

 

When you’re ready to create your own single supplement capsules, choose a suitable time and place to ensure you’re not rushed and set aside an hour when you’re free of interruptions, then arrange your equipment on a stable surface where you have plenty of room and follow these step by step instructions.

 

STEP 1

Insert your empty capsule shells into the capsule machine.

 

Set up the capsule machine following the instructions provided with the machine in your starter kit.

 

Load the empty capsules into your machine – the long halves go into the base and the shorter halves go into the lid.

 

Set the base of your capsule machine on the provided stand and place on a plate or shallow bowl to catch any spillage.

 

STEP 2

Using the provided scraper, fill all 24 caps with your chosen supplement powder.

 

Tamp (press down) the filled capsules with the tamper provided to compact the supplement powder.

 

Fill and tamp (compact) again. Repeat this process until the capsules are full.

 

STEP 3

Following the instructions provided with the machine, connect the lids of the capsules back onto the capsule body and take the capsules out of the machine.

 

To do this, remove the base from the stand. You can now place the lid with the capsule tops on the base.

 

Press down hard to join the capsule pieces together. The base is on a rigid spring and will flatten with adequate pressure.

 

You can now press down on the back of the lid to release your capsules.

 

STEP 4

Your single supplement capsules are complete.

 

We recommend weighing the filled capsules (and deducting the weight of an empty capsule) to determine how much of your supplement powder is in each capsule.

 

You can now repeat the process to make more capsules or clean the machine for another day.

 

Warning: It is extremely important to note the safety of the powders used. You can find safety information on a Safety Data Sheet (SDS). Ensure adequate ventilation is used and if the powders are unsafe to inhale then use safety masks or breathing apparatuses to avoid inhaling the substances.

Multiple Supplement Capsules (Complex)

Accuracy is crucial to getting optimal results. When you’re ready to create your own blended multi-supplement capsules, choose a suitable time and place to ensure you’re not rushed and set aside an hour when you’re free of interruptions, then arrange your equipment on a stable surface where you have plenty of room and follow the step by step instructions below.

 

STEP 1

Decide your ingredients and the amounts you want.

 

STEP 2

Consider the properties of each ingredient. Does one clump together or is it hygroscopic (absorbs moisture). If the properties are not suitable for uniform mixing, then you may want to consider using another substance to help with the mixing process and to ensure your mixture stays mixed together and does not clump back together. Silica is one such substance that can be used for this. It is usually mixed with other powders in amounts of 0.5 – 2% of total powder blend volume.

 

STEP 3

Sieve each ingredient to ensure it is a fine uniform powder with no lumps. If you have any lumps use a mortar and pestle to grind (triturate) the lumps into a fine powder.

 

STEP 4

Measure the individual density of each ingredient. To do this you need to know how much of each ingredient fits in the capsules. Run each ingredient through the capsule machine and weigh the capsules. Record the weights of the capsules for each ingredient. These weights can be used to calculate the density of each ingredient compared to the other ingredients.

 

STEP 5

Decide which ingredient will be the “filler”. This ingredient will be the one that fills the remainder of the capsule after your active ingredients.

 

STEP 6

Use the multiple ingredient capsule formula* (see below) to calculate how much filler you will need to accurately make your capsules.

 

STEP 7

Weigh out your ingredients with an accurate scale.

 

STEP 8

Mix your ingredients together using the geometric dilution technique. Geometric dilution is slowly combining your ingredients at small portions at a time. For example, if you are mixing two powders, take the powder of the smaller amount and place in the pestle. Then add the other powder but only at of equal amount to the lesser powder, leaving the rest out of the mixture for now. Finely grind (triturate) the powder with the mortar so it is completely mixed (Homogeneous). Add an amount of the remaining powder equal to what is in the pestle. Repeat the process until all the powder is mixed and homogeneity is achieved. If you are mixing two powders that are of different colours, then you will be able to see how well it is mixing. If you are mixing two powders of similar colours, then you can use a food grade dye in with the powders to ensure the homogeneity of the mixture.

 

STEP 9

Once the powders are completely mixed it is now time to encapsulate your powder. Follow the instructions included with the capsule machine to create your capsules.

 

STEP 10

Package your capsules in a container of your choice and include a silica gel pack to keep moisture away.

 

Warning: It is extremely important to note the safety of the powders used. You can find safety information on a Safety Data Sheet (SDS). Ensure adequate ventilation is used and if the powders are unsafe to inhale then use safety masks or breathing apparatuses to avoid inhaling the substances.

It is also important to ensure mixing is completed correctly and the ingredients are in the correct proportions uniformly throughout the mixture otherwise you will risk taking incorrect dosages of your ingredients which could be dangerous or even fatal. If you have any doubts about the mixture do not take it.

CYO Beverages

CYO Beverages

When making your own beverages you will need to consider the following items:

Flavours
Sweeteners
Stabilisers
Emulsifiers
Food Acid
Preservative
Active Ingredients
Bottles and Lids
Water

Flavours: These can be in liquid or powder form. Usually flavour is added at 0.5% to 4% of the total mixture. It’s best to start at the lower end of the scale and work your way up until you are happy with the taste.

Sweeteners: There are many types of sweeteners available all with varying levels of sweetness. For example Stevia extract can be 300 – 400 times sweeter than sugar whereas Sucralose can be 600 times sweeter than sugar. With Stevia extract we like to start with about 0.4%.

Stabilisers: This is a substance that maintains the uniform dispersal of substances in a drink. Also known as Hydrocolloids, they are water-soluble gums and starches and are high-molecular-weight plant polysaccharides. Some naturally occurring stabilisers are Guar gum, inulin, locust bean gum, gum acacia, carrageenans, agar, pectins,tara gum and konjac. They all have different characteristics and properties and choosing the right one will depend on your ingredients.  

Emulsifiers: These are agents that form or preserve a mixture of substances normally incapable of being mixed i.e. oil and water. These molecules have a hydrophilic tail and hydrophobic head. Natural emulsifiers are proteins and phospholipids. There are four groups of natural emulsifiers and they are categorised by the hydrophilic group, being: Anionics, Non-Ionics, Catonics and Amphoterics. Some natural emulsifiers are: Soy Lectin, Sunflower Lectin, Sorbitan Ester, Calcium Stearoyl Di Laciate, PolyGlycerol Ester and Monoglyceride. THe HLB and HLD systems are used to help choose which emulsifier is appropriate for a particular mixture. 

Active ingredients: These can be whatever you want. Vitamins, Minerals, Herbal extracts, Nootropics and more!

Food Acids: These are used to help with the flavour and give products a tangy taste. Natural food acids are sourced from fruits such as lemons, oranges, plums and berries. Some common naturally occuring food acids are Citric Acid, Tartaric Acid and Malic Acid.

Preservatives: Are used to avoid spoilage of food /drinks if they are not being consumed within a short time frame. Some natural food acids are Citric Acid and Ascorbic Acid. There are many chemical preservatives although some are considered not safe so care needs to be taken when choosing a preservative. One preservative that has a few uses is Sodium Citrate, it has a sour and salty taste so can enhance the flavour or drinks and also can be used as a preservative. 

Water: Generally a water with low mineral quantities will be ideal for most drink mixes.

CYO Tinctures

CYO Tinctures

You can create your own tincture by dissolving an extract in alcohol (Ethanol). You will need the following items:

Tincture Bottles (glass)
Mason Jar
Ethanol (Glycerine can be used for those with alcohol sensitivities)
Active ingredient (Herbal Extract)

Steps in process:

Make sure your herbs are finely chopped or grinded. Mix your herbs in a Mason jar with high proof alcohol. How much alcohol goes in the jar depends on what is being put in the jar. For example: 

Fresh leaves and flowers: Fill jar ⅔ to ¾ with herb and pour alcohol to top of jar. Dried Leaves and Flowers: Fill jar ½ to ¾ with herb and pour alcohol to top of jar. Fresh roots, barks and berries: Fill jar ⅓ to ½ with herbs and pour alcohol to top of jar. Dried roots, barks and berries: Fill jar ¼ to ⅓ and pour alcohol to the top of jar. Note: Jar should appear full of herb, but herb should move freely when shaken

What type of alcohol to use: Generally a clear low flavour alcohol like Vodka can be used. The percentage of alcohol to use will depend on the herb being extracted and its content of alcohol and water soluble components. 

40% – 50% alcohol is good for most dried herbs and fresh herbs that are not too juicy. This level is good for extraction of water soluble properties. 67.5% – 70% alcohol will extract volatile aromatic properties. This good for fresh, high moisture herbs, berries and aromatic roots. It will draw out more of the plant juices. Lastly 85% – 95% alcohol is good for dissolving gums and resins but not all plant material. It will get the aromatics and essential oils out. It will dehydrate the herbs if used for botanicals other than gums and resins.

Close the jar and let it sit for a few weeks, shaking it once a day. Try to leave as little air space between the liquid and lid as possible. Store your tincture in a cool, dark and dry place. When shaking daily it is also good to check the alcohol levels as if the alcohol has evaporated a bit you will need to top up the jar with more alcohol to ensure herbs are completely submerged. Exposure to air can introduce mold and bacteria. To speed up this step you can simmer the jar in a water bath for 20min at 76 degrees celsius. Some components will extract better under heat but this will depend on the herb. 

Filter with a coffee filter or cheesecloth over a funnel and pour or let it drip into your tincture bottles. Squeeze every last drop out!

CYO Nasal Spray

CYO Nasal Spray

To make your own Nasal Spray you will need the following items:

Active Ingredients
Nasal Spray Bottle
Purified (Distilled) Water
Preservative
Humectant
Emulsifier

Active ingredients: These can be whatever you want. Vitamins, Minerals, Herbal extracts, Nootropics and more!

Nasal Spray Bottles: You will need to calculate the volume of liquid that comes out of each spray as this will help you to figure out the amount of active ingredients that is dispensed.

Purified Water (Distilled Water): Purified or distilled water must be used as tap water can contain contaminants and / or bacteria which can be harmful.

Preservatives: Are used to avoid spoilage and to prevent bacteria/yeast and fungi growing in your product  if they are not being consumed within a short time frame. Potassium sorbate or potassium benzoate are commonly used as a preservative in Nasal Sprays however these are chemical preservatives.

Humectant: This is a wetting agent an example of one is vegetable glycerine which can also act as an emulsifier. 

Emulsifier: This helps the product mix and stay mixed one example is Purified Soy Lecithin. Using an emulsifier will ensure the correct amount of active ingredients is dispensed each time. 

Ethanol: Can be used to help dissolve and mix certain ingredients. Also used as a preservative.

CYO Droppers

CYO Droppers

You will need the following items:

Dropper Bottle
Carrier
Emulsifier
Preservative
Purified (Distilled) Water

Dropper bottles: One drop is usually approximately 1 ml but it is a good idea to confirm this with all new mixtures.

Carrier: This is what your active ingredients are dissolved in. It can be purified (distilled) water or vegetable glycerine and will depend on what your active ingredients dissolve in best.

Emulsifier / Carrier: Vegetable Glycerine or Propylene Glycol or both

Preservative: Methyl Paraben is commonly used if the product is not being consumed in a short time frame.
