I look for the simplest, purest formulations I can find, because I don't tolerate so many of the substances used as excipients and capsules; and because encapsulation subjects the contents to heat. If I have to use a product that comes in a capsule, I pull it apart and sprinkle the ingredients on my food — or if it's a gelcap, I bite into it and suck the liquid out.

(I also take these, which are not supplements but prescription drugs:
Estriol
Natural in water gel, .00321425 mg / day
Progesterone
Natural micronized, in olive oil with nothing else, 450 mg /day topically
Testosterone
Natural, in olive oil with nothing else, 1 mg /day

Again, I get the purest form I can, and avoid all pharmaceutical products — even over-the-counter medications — because of their chemicals. )
