    Does anyone mix and make their own supplements?

    Just curious. I tend to use a lot of different supplements (pre, post, and bed), and find it beneficial to buy powders of each in bulk and mix my own. This way I can control and customize the amounts and when. Pre-made ones never seem to have the ingredients I want and in the right amounts. I also assume this would save money, especially if bough in bulk, but I have never broken this down, as there are many factors to consider.

    The negative is that it takes some time to measure and mix the supplements each day, especially when I'm on the road once a month or so (kind of a pain to bring 20-25 gigantic pouches of powder with me, so I make 7-14 days worth in advance and put the mixes in pre-labeled baggies to save space). Also, since I use the powders from one company, I wonder about the quality (made in China I think) vs. pre-mixed jars you can buy on Amazon or in stores.

    So, does anyone else do this, and are there any more pros or cons?

    A lot of the raw material that goes into popular supplements comes from China so you're not different in that respect but as you know the convenience of not having to bring all your ingredients with you is part of why most people don't make their own
    My secret? Texting between sets.

    OK, thank you @eatyourspinach. Yes, it definitely is a pain, but I love the ability to customize, as needed. I guess everything nowadays is made in China too, lol.
