    What to use in regards to parachuting powders?


    What are people using?

    I tried RICE PAPER, and it just cracks. What other options?

    I use to just use toilet paper and I read it was ok, but of late I noticed it's been giving me stomach issues & after reading up on it it's not totally safe.

    Is there any wrap, food that folds like a tissue we can dump powder in and throw it down? Someone must of found something!

    Thanks

    Have you tried slightly wetting the rice paper first?

    I drop the powder under my tongue, then swig some water really fast. Can't even taste it.

    Man, just get some Great Value (chrystal light) powder and put a little of that in your shaker. Makes everything palatable.

    Why parachute?

    Because you're taking bulk Berberine. If someone can handle taking that straight, they are a champ.

    Bulk cissus is pretty rancid. Just as bad as pharma grade caffeine powder.

    Bulk Berberine is worse. Didn't think anything could beat cissus, but Berberine sure did.

    Is it weird I'm actually ok with the taste of cissus? Tastes like an earthy chocolate flavor to me.

    Sulbutiamine is the worst powder I've ever had. I've had nightmares about it.

    I don't mind the cissus too much either. For a while I mixed cissus, 1-carboxy, and Super sapponins in a shaker with no flavor and down the hatch. The way I do it is use very little water, just enough to get it down the throat, but not thick. So like 3 oz or so. Then just slam it.

    never tried those other ones that you mentioned though.

    I did this once with Berberine. Worst mistake of my life. I stood over the sink gagging for 10 minutes and the taste stayed in my mouth for a few hours even after eating. Doesn't come off the fingers very well either.

    That sounds bad. I will take your word for it and this sounds like a perfect candidate for parachuting!

    These. Sulbutiamine takes the cake. I tried it twice, just tossing it back with water. Never again...capsuled the rest of it. Think glue, gas, and something else terrible.

    I've downed ber before, and cissus, and much more. Small amount of water.

    Take splenda, moisten your tongue, paste your tongue in splenda.. so there is a coat of it on it.. put powder on top of splenda.. down a shot of water quick.

    Maybe silk tea bags? I think they're something like 60% aminos, so I assume they could be digested?

    http://www.foodproductiondaily.com/P...ater-developer

    Maybe coat your tongue in candle wax?


    That made me think of maybe getting a mini ice cube tray, filling halfway with unsweetened chocolate, dosing in each, and filling the rest of the way.

    Which raises the point: Why not just make supplement ice cubes?

    I like some of your ideas, tho a little time consuming! I can take some bulks, but in terms of something like Cissus I like to take 5g per day. I am going to look into the idea of silk bags as it's interesting!

    I just read it can be dangerous and cause some issues in the stomach in some people, I figure if you're doing it every other day it can't be good long term.

    Having done a single scoop of cissus recently, I can see why you cats hate it, let alone like 7 scoops... I tried dropping it in my mouth and chasing it, and doing it as a shot... oddly, chasing it was easier. Might try ice cubes.

    Pudding cubes? Tell me cissus couldn't disappear at least a little into a Snack Pack. Yoghurt cubes? Unflavored gelatin? Cissus gummies?

    Beberine is easily the worst tasting supp ive ever had to endure swallowing, mixing it with a small amount of oximega greens masks the taste surprisingly well

    Using paper (usually toilet paper) to wrap your bulk powder and take it like caps/tabs instead of capping it.

    Unless it's something that you want to dose away from carbs, toss it in a spoonful of applesauce and slam it. Won't even taste it.

    If it's berberine I'm sure you can taste it even in apple sauce. Having said that I've never tired apple sauce for any powder.
