There are a lot of ways on how to make Malunggay capsule. It is so easy and anyone can make it at home.
This was how I made my own capsule.
After cleaning the leaves with water, I air dried it this way for two to three days. Before hanging the leaves, I scrutinized each leaves for any remaining sticky dirt or cobwebs. I also removed the yellow leaves. As days go by, dried leaves curls and some fell from the stems. I carefully separated the leaves and the stems.
I roasted the leaves in a big pan for about 4-5 minutes for sanitation purposes.
Roasted leaves becomes crispy that makes it great to be powdered.
Not all leaves can be powdered with a blender. The remaining I placed inside an ice wrapper and powdered it using a mortar and a pestle.
Powdered Malunggay ready for packing.
Empty gelatin capsules are available in leading drugstores. Malunggay capsules are normally packed in #0 capsule. I purposely packed it in #1 which is smaller so that small kids can easily swallow it.
In capsuling, proper hygiene must be observed. It is recommended to sanitize hands with alcohol, making sure under nails are clean and wear mask while packing. You can wear a hair net if you can.
