    Packing supplements on airplanes (business travel)


    I've recently taken a promotion at work. Great for my bank account, but not for my lifestyle! Anyone have any experience with packing supplements for air travel? i.e. Carry-on luggage appropriate for packing supplements, what is FAA approval for packing powders, pills, etc. Looking to find creative ways to pack for a few days!
    Progress leads to success.

    Yep, no issues here either.

    Just be prepared to have your bag inspected. Once TSA sees their supplements and run their powder screen you're good to go

    I've packed powders in my carry-on probably 20+ times and never had a single issue. Additionally, never had a problem with chalk in a Tupperware bowl either-but I sure as hell thought I would.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    I've put serms in a quart bag with my other carry on liquids and haven't had a problem either, I just made sure to pull of the label that said "not for human consumption"

    I travel 2-3 times a month within the US...in my experience pills the TSA doesn't care about and I have 3-5 bottles in my carry on all the time...anything powder will get your bag searched but thats just it, just a search and you will be on your way after..I have carried MRP packets and my alphamine in my carry on and I asked them what caused the search ..and TSA told me the powder..so now I just place my alphamine in one of those small holders and let it go through the xray on its own, they usually pick it up read it, shake it to make sure its powder and not liquid ad I am good to go, no more searches..same with the MRP's throw em in a bin just in case, as sometimes the MRP throws the TSA off sometimes it doesn't...so bottom line to avoid the delay/search leave pills in the carry on and take anything powder out and run it through seperate in the open in a bin...hope this helps

    I never put in my carry on, more than maybe a pill container, I traveled to Europe with PH's in my luggage, no problem.

    Never had an issue in the last 4 years (I am on the road about 42-48 weeks in a year). Carried Alphamine, some protein powders (not a tub worth though). If possible , leave it in its original packing. They would not open it anyway.
