    Arrow Capping Bulk Nettle Root


    When it comes to value vs. effectiveness, it seems like the Bulk Nettle Root is the winner hands down. Now the question comes to how easy can it be capped? Hopefully bulk caps will come out on this soon, but until then, would appreciate feedback on what is involved with capping Bulk Nettle Root.

    I have never attempted it before, but have seen there are several different types including the Cap Em Quick w/Tamper ("00"), Complete Capping Kit ("00"), Deluxe Capping Kit ("00"), etc.

    Have heard that some bulk items are easier than others to cap and recall several mentioning that Bulk Nettle Root might not be the easiest as it is sticky or something.

    Obvious this seems like the cheaper route than buying Activate, just trying to make sure it is worth it in the long run with regards to consistent measurements, etc.

    Here are some good options.

    1. Weigh out the powder and mix it with liquid sucralose or crystal light.
    2. Suspend it extra virgen olive oil and shake it before each use for accurate dosing.

    I just got tired of capping so these routes do the trick for me.

    I just recently got bulk nettle root from NP and capped it. It went fairly easily. It seems to suffer from the same problem as good cissus does.. it draws moisture. So make sure its not too humid when ya start capping.

    I found that if you fill a 00 cap to the top and do not tamp, it equals the effective dose (sorry, I forget what the dose is off the top of my head... I think around 600mg) I use the cap 'em quick. Hope this helps.

    Capping isn't that bad. I started capping b/c I needed cissus and it could only be found in bulk for quite some time. I have since moved on to other powders and have found that I can tolerate most bulk powders in taste, but 00 caps and a CapMQuick is a much better option.

    I just do it once every two to three weeks for about 30-40 minutes and I'm set for a while.

    I was thinking of the Crystal Light suggestion as I currently do that for my preworkout stack of CM, CEE, ALCAR, etc.

    I have tried the bulk nettle in Crystal Light. Bulk Nettle has a very earthy taste and IMO is best covered up with a strong tea flavor and lemonade did alright. I have also found that it is easily "hidden" in a shake.

    How have you capped bulk nettle? Do you use the 00 caps and fill them completely or do you need to use any filler?

    I'll have to get back to you tonight. I have been capping a lot of stuff lately and can't remember exact numbers. It's probably about 500MG per cap. I capped Muira Puama and Cissus two nights ago (separately). If I can recall correctly, I could get about 440mg of MP if packed tight and about 600mg of cissus packed tight. Sometimes I get a little less because it becomes tedious tamping over and over.

    ...oh, and taurine is a great filler IMO; it's cheap and I take it a lot anyway.

    I filled them up completely when I used it. Should give you around 500-550mg per cap which is perfect for the intended use.

    I throw it in my whey. Not tasty, but easily drinkable.

    So is there really any need then to measure the bulk nettle root if you are using the 00 caps? Simply filling them and don't use any tapping, should equate to about 500-550 mg?

    Here's a foolproof method for you bro. All you need is a scale:
    1. Weigh out 10 empty caps and calculate the weight of each cap.
    2. Measure the weight of a filled cap and subtract the weight of the cap to get the total. It's probably easier to weigh 5-10 caps at a time depending on the dose you need.

    I didn't have to measure them all. I just checked a couple out the batch. Remember to subtract the weight of the cap itself. I had to tamp the powder to get that much in. If Im really trying to FILL a cap up I fill/tamp until I cant anymore.

    Is the nettle root an extract or just powdered root?

    It's very comparable to the old Activate formula IMO. Same type of aggressive mood, slight strength increases, and some leaning out due to it's diuretic potential.

    What do you guys do for different colored caps. I have the purple and white NP ones but I don't really want to do everything in them.

    I just buy different brands until NP gets the variety going. A good way to go is with the NOW brand caps. A little more expensive but their clear and allows easy determination by the color of the powder alone.

    You can find many different coloured caps with a google search.
    And flavoured caps for animals. (good for feeding pets herbs...)

    Activate gives you around 48gr of nettle at that price. You get 50gr for 10+ dollars less with the bulk. It all just depends on how much you like divanil as opposed to the other goodies.

    Best way to do it is to find out what size cap yields the right amount of extract (I normally just do a few tests then toss em on the scale). Then toss em in the capemfast and do them all in one go. Too easy.

    There is always that possibility when taking anything that manipulates hormone levels either synthetically or naturally.
