If you're interested in starting your own home based supplement manufacturing and distribution company, you'll need a few pieces of pharmaceutical equipment. Don't panic, they're not expensive and they'll make your production process much easier and more professional.

Getting Started

The first thing you'll need are empty capsules. Ordering empty capsules is easy online and most suppliers have good websites detailing the differences in size and substance. Capsules come in a range of sizes, just remember that the smaller the number, the bigger the capsule. They also come in different colors and flavors to make add variety and fun to your supplements. Note that empty capsules are generally made of gelatin, and that you'll need to order vegetable capsules if you have any vegetarian customers.

The next thing you'll need is a capsule filling machine. These come in a variety of sizes depending on your production requirements. Small machines can put out a few hundred filled capsules per hour, larger ones several thousand per hour. The machines come with all the accessories you'll need, including empty capsules, tamping tools, and encapsulating sheets.

With the empty capsules and the filling machine, you're now ready to start producing and distributing your own personal supplements. You can do this by word of mouth, or with some advertising. A great way to boost sales and efficiently manage your home based business is to set up a website. Allow customers to order directly from your website and pay by check or credit card online. It's not a bad idea to get a toll free number so your potential customers can call you with any questions they might have.
