    How do you carry your various supps throughout the day?


    I am a busy student and I work, I find myself wasting a lot of plastic bags and I don't like the price or bulkiness of those shaker/supp holders like smart shake plus I already have a blender bottle. Do you have any ideas/recommendations?

    keep powders in gym bag, take before working out.

    and either just put the caps/tabs in your pocket, or take all of them at home before you leave, then again when you get home.

    simple, instead of running around looking like a dope dealer with baggies of pills. campus police will have fun with that if they see it.

    Like this- fits a scoop or 2 of alphamine with ease. It will also hold about 4 caps. This one is only like an inch wide

    I have a pill holder with compartments, it was a freebie from an order. Those small containers with the lids are great for protein powder, and I premix stuff like alphamine in a bottle of water.

    I just picked up this new NutraPlanet gym bag. I pretty much made it my "supplement bag" for travel. So all daily containers and shaker bottles go in there...no more ziploc bags and etc for this guy

    Is that right? Jeez lately I just whip em out and throw em down, no matter who's watching.

    It's gotten so bad lately when I go out to eat with my girlfriend I actually put the pills on the table so I don't forget to take them. I love watching the waiter just stare at the dark red anabeta elite and yellow anabolic pump just sitting there next to my beer as he's reading the specials

    Its the next best thing to film canisters, if anyone still remembers those ... I stumbled across that looking for a way to take supps backpacking, making sure that there was no way for fish oil to get squished or punctured in my bag. Otherwise I use on of those 7 compartment CVS pill holders

    i've never gotten in trouble for carrying random pills or powders...then again in order to get in trouble some dummy cop would have to search you in which there would have to be reason to search, so you'd probably have to be doing something stupid.....then when they take the pills or powder you tell them what they are and after the tests come back that everything is legal, then your good to go

    even generic asprin isn't clearly labeled and do u know how many ppl keep that stuff on them all the time?

    i'm with the above though, i'm taking a gda supplement and i go out to eat or whatever....that goes right on the table so i don't forget

    Seeing unmarked pills leaves absolutely zero probable cause or reasonable suspicion to commence a search. A law eforcement officer cannot intrude on your privacy to say "Are those pills illegal?" That violates both your 4th and 5th amendment.

    A baggy with white powder and you happend to have some bloodshot eyes and the sniffles while acting irrational could be a different story.

    well if someone got pulled over, i wouldn't think someone would have a cup holder full of pills...could be wrong but i keep my bags in my pocket for the most part

    however i was pulled over once after the gym when the bags were empty just sitting in my cup holder, figure that would give a reason to search the car, but he either didn't notice or just didn't care because it wasn't like i was messed up or anything

    It doesn't matter. Unless you give him a reason, an officer cannot assume that it's illegal.

    I know but I'm saying from my experience and line of work that it's fine. Now if you're talking oral steroids..just hope the cop doesn't know what the pill marking on dbol or winstrol looks like. Either way, he cannot search unless he has a reason to-reasonable suspicion or probable cause. Don't give them a reason to wonder what the pills are, and they can't search.

    It's not illegal. To use a field narcotics identification kit you would have to know the exact substance to test for anyways. If a cop asks me what that pill is I would respectfully say that it's none of his business. Unless you're somewhere, like an airport, where signs are posted that you are subject to search and seizure , they will not search you unless they have reason to- my post workout anabeta elite pill in the cup holder is not one of those reasons. If I seem to be under the influence of a substance, then it is a reason to.

    Or ask yourself this-Why would they even sell pill cases.

    I've flown with unlabeled pills many many times. If it was illegal I'm sure TSA would have jacked something or had me arrested by now. I've even had several of the "Your bags were opened and carefully searched" papers placed in my bags.

    I use a huge pill box I got online. Best thing I ever got because I would previously just bring all by separate bill bottles, but my gym bag kept bulging from too many products!

    i use these little bottles that i got from power chews samples from mrsupps. theyre kind of like little old school film rolls. i could jam 4 bigass fish oil pills in them, or roughly 6 or so normal pills like hdrol or something if i had to. i got 3-4 of them in one sample btw, theyre perfect

    Thanks for all your advice, I wanted to get rid of the bags and get something reusable for powder and pills. Like for my pre and post workout supplements. I typed in supplement dispenser in google and the first thing that came up was the 3vo supplement dispenser. I also checked stacker bottle but that thing looks more bulky than my blender bottle. Maybe I'll go with the 3vo.

    I'm lucky enough to work split shifts and run my company from home.

    I carry a bag with them all in it.

    My pills wouldn't fit in that container lol

    Since hurting my back I take about 30 a day just for my back alone!
