Learn How to Save Big Money on Doctor’s Best High Absorption Magnesium Glycinate Lysinate 100 mg.


Doctor’s Best Magnesium supplement is the best selling magnesium supplement on the market today.  Customers boast about how effective it is. You can check out the reviews on Amazon and see for yourself.  The reviewers there are highly informed and provide an abundance of useful information about this supplement.  Conversely, many reviewers complain about the gigantic size of the Doctor’s Best Magnesium tablets.  I even saw the word ginormous used a few times.  Luckily, you’re going to learn how to solve this problem today.

Magnesium glycinate is commonly taken to help with osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.  It’s a wonderful form of magnesium, but since it is best taken daily, the price can add up to $100 a year.  If that’s the only supplement you’re taking, that’s not so bad.  But if you’re like most people, you could be buying a dozen different supplements and these costs can really add up.

By filling your own capsules with magnesium glycinate lysinate, you can save a whole bunch of money and actually get a better quality product than Doctor’s Best.  Filling your own capsules is not complicated and you can learn everything you need to know about it here on this blog.



BETTER Formula and Cheaper!





I’ll show you how to get the same dosage of magnesium glycinate without all the fillers and for a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the size!


The main ingredient in Doctor’s Best Magnesium is magnesium glycinate, but there’s a lot of other stuff in there too.  I’m not saying that it’s bad stuff, but these are pills, not capsules.  Pill manufacturing requires these extra starches, fillers, and coatings in order to produce the product.  You can, however, skip all that extra stuff and just take pure magnesium glycinate in capsules that you fill yourself.

Another benefit worth mentioning is that without the fillers, these will be much easier to swallow!  The Doctor’s Best pills are large.




Let’s see what ingredients we will need…


Oh, this is going to be easy. To make our new and improved formula, we’re only going to need one ingredient, the magnesium.  I easily found it on Amazon here.

This is the same type of magnesium used in the Doctor’s Best formula.  This bag holds 500 mg, which is about a pound, and will be enough to make 1250 capsules. You’ll probably never need to make that many, so you’re going to have about 2/3 of the bag left.  See if any of your friends would like to share the bag with you.



Let’s Do Some Some Calculating

I had some choices with choosing a capsule size.  If I was to create a capsule with only 100 mg in it, similar to the Doctor’s Best pills, it would so tiny, (size 4 or 5) I wouldn’t be able to use a manual capsule filling machine.  Filling them by hand is NOT an option for me, I don’t have that kind of time or patience.

I made an executive decision and chose to do an entire daily dose in one simple capsule.  A size 1 capsule will do the job perfectly by holding approximately 400 mg.


Materials You Will Need



Total cost to make year’s worth of capsules: $26


I didn’t include the cost of a capsule filling machine because you might already have one.   You can pick one up for around $20 and use it for all the new supplements you’re going to make!


Not Too Much Time or Effort Needed

Many of the new generation capsule fillers that you can find on Amazon let you fill 100 capsules at a time.  When you’ve gotten comfortable with the machine, you will be able to do a batch 5 minutes.  In about a half an hour you could have all the capsule filling said and done.  A year’s supply!

The more manual filler types, like The Capsule Machine or the Cap M Quik, would take you about 45 minutes, but that’s if you wanted to do all 365 caps in one sitting.


Don’t Be Afraid

First time capsule filling can be messy and daunting, but don’t let that deter you.   You will get comfortable with it in no time.  Watch a YouTube video for guidance, there’s lots of them there.  Good luck & Enjoy!
